Situated near Santa Monica, is the Palawan Butterfly Garden, where you will get the chance to walk around a number of different species of fluttering butterflies. Before entering, you can watch a short video that explains the life cycle of these delicate creatures.
A complex of concrete buildings houses the Palawan Wildlife Rescue & Conservation Center. There are guided tours leaving every 30 minutes through the facilities where you can see hundreds of slow-moving crocodiles.
The Palawan Museum is worth checking out if you’re interested in the ethnological and archaeological history of the island province. Housed in the old City Hall building adjacent to Mendoza Park, it has two floors of exhibits, most with accompanying explanations in English. Items include Chinese- and Spanish-era pottery and relics, as well as prehistoric artefacts from Tabon Caves. Another exhibit upstairs identifies the various peoples who call Palawan home.
