Here is a list of wonderful places you need to visit when you’re in Tagaytay.
Sea Cocoon Hotel is more than just a place to stay – it is an experience that will stay with you long after you leave El Nido. In a saturated world of stale accommodations and repetitive guesthouses, it was sensational to be able to enjoy what may just be the best hotel in El Nido.
Bluewater Maribago Beach Resort is a rustic resort for travelers interested in convenience, relaxation, and plenty of leisure activities.
Olivier and I were ecstatic to have ticked off an item in our bucket list by flying with Air Island Tours from Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island to Mactan, Cebu.
We had been contemplating to visit Camiguin since we missed it on our backpacking adventures in Northern Mindanao. Torrential rains immobilized all ferries to depart Balingon port so we moved to Butuan City instead. Besides, being close and accessible to Cebu, flights to there are quiet cheap so we decided to do it as a separate trip. A few weeks later, I had a long weekend break from work so we booked our flights to visit Camiguin for a couple of days.
Taal volcano has quite a reputation as we learned from our Elementary years. Just an hour away from Manila, this geological wonder may be small the smallest active volcano in the world, but just so you know, with at least 33 eruptions in recorded history, some were even destructive, it is the second most active volcano (Mayon being the first) in the whole Philippine archipelago.
The Mister and I are always keen to visiting spots which are less traveled, less popular and away from the regular tourist crowd – which brought us to Mantigue Island. It is a lesser known attraction in the island of Camiguin. It is not receiving a huge and steady flock of tourists yet comparing to White Island.
Our stay at Punta del Este (The Point of the East) was a delight on so many levels. From the moment we arrived and then saw just how lovely the villa is, we knew we were in for a great holiday.
After spending a night in Manila, the Mr. and I are keen to leave the city. Both of us have been looking forward to going to Puerto Galera to celebrate my birthday and spend some alone time together.
There is no direct flight to El Nido. This means that you will have to (a) fly to Puerto Princesa, the capital city of Palawan and travel 6-7 hours of long and winding road or (b) fly to Coron and take a boat trip for 7-8 hours to reach El Nido. Yes, it sounds stressful.
