Firefly Watching in Abatan River

A Night Tour Experience to Remember

Visit Bohol with a twist and make a side trip to the northern part of the province, the town of Maribojoc.

Experience a memorable encounter with winged beetles, commonly called Fireflies or Lightning Bugs (scientific name: Photuris Lucicrescens) along the Maribojoc area of the Abatan River.
