The main tree house can accommodate up to 10 people and costs P2,000 for the day or P3,000 for overnight stays.  The daughter tree house is just P1,500 for the day or P2,000 overnight.  General admission to the park costs P20 Monday to Friday and P30 on the weekends. There are also a number of smaller cottages for rent for groups to use.  Huts without a roof cost P100 while the thatch-covered huts will cost P200 for the day.  These smaller huts do not have an option to stay overnight so you and your party will need to plan on heading home when the park closes at 6:00PM.
