You will see this Ati Tribe at the end of the Loboc River.  This is on the other side of the river, you will find Busay Falls on the other end.  This is a garden themed park created for the indigenous people of Bohol. The Ati (Aetas) was  one of the aboriginals in Bohol. They perform ethnic dance here every 11am. Sad to say we’re not able to witness the performance.
