A nice place to visit in Puerto Princesa. The tribal village was very interesting. Seeing how the original palawan tribes live, hunt and survive was an eye opener. Short demonstrations and music made it that much more interactive. The butterfly farm along with some creepy...More

Had some time to kill waiting for our flight so decided to check this out. Glad we did, it was great! Butterfly’s were neat and all the other local animals were great to learn about. Totally recommend, especially for inexpensive family activity.

For 50 pesos you are coming to the garden with butterflies but scorpions where there also and gecons and some more. Then you are going to see the origin Palawan people in the village who're sharing their culture with you, absolutely great experience!!

As much as I welcomed the hundreds of butterflies around me inside the garden, the experience I had within the Tribal Village opened my heart to travel back in time when I was so much younger. The tribe welcomed me with open arms and shared...More

This is a nice place to visit which include the butterflies and other wild life but the main attraction in my opinion is the village of the indigenous people , the way they live and you can also interact with them.
