What to explore at Abatan River Firefly Tour?

Firefly Watching gives tourists a magical treat in Bohol. Approaching the lobby area is already an experience in itself. A girl wearing what seemed like a tribal costume held a clay pot with white smoke rising from it, dances around you. This is part of a ritual called “Palina” to make sure you are protected from bad spirits. The ride is very relaxing. The guide will tell you about the mangroves in the area and the importance of protecting them. If a tree is cut, the fireflies will transfer to another area and, most likely, never come back. Firefly Watching Tour will be definitely an unforgettable experience when you visit Bohol.
