One of the first places Cebu residents will take visiting relatives is the Jumalon Butterfly Sanctuary , west of the downtown area. It’s hardly a place you’d expect butterflies to hang around, but hang around they do – from branches and leaves all over the garden of Julian Jumalon’s home. You will receive a lecture and tour showing you butterflies in various stages of their life cycle, and butterfly collections and artworks made from damaged butterfly wings – even a presidential portrait! The best time of day for viewing is the morning, and the best time of year is from June to February, when the butterflies are breeding. Ring first to make a booking.
