It is small but is delicately and caringly preserved. Definitely worth stopping in and spend a bit of time here on your way to the park.

100peso entrance but worth it. Around 10 different species and not that big but the owner was saving to expand to a second garden. Great to combine with an island tour. We went to Cambugahay falls afterwards which was amazing!
