Grand Villa Resort and Butterfly Center, Laguna ( Part 2 )


Included in the deal was the free Butterfly Garden tour and access to the newly opened Aviary. Since the deal was for 9 people only, I had to pay  P500 for 2 extra people. There was nothing much to see in the Aviary so I think P250 entrance/person wasn't worth the price. We were not able to explore the Adventure Camp because the kids still wanted to enjoy swimming before heading back home. There were some nice spots around the resort  for photo ops but to me it's the kind of resort  which I would only visit once and never come back again. I didn't like the service and some staffs were unfriendly. I don't have anything much to say so just please enjoy the photos!





This butterfly was actually dead.( poor thing!) I just picked it up to snapped a  picture of my niece holding it.


Wishing well

Dinaya kami diyan last time. Hindi sila honest. Kaya kung bibili kayo ng butterflies icheck nyo muna kasi yung sa amin maraming patay na butterflies at diyaryo ang ipinambalot nila. Nasa ilalim yung sa diyaryo ang balot para hindi mahalata.

Nagpamassage ako diyan gabing gabi na yon. Grabe iba na yung pinuntirya. Pero narelax naman ako kahit papano. :D
