Its more fun in the Philippines, I have proven this when we conducted an educational tour in Puerto Galera, one of the most visited tourist spot in Oriental Mindoro. Puerto Galera is only four and a half hours away from Manila. First by bus to the Port of Batangas City then by boat. While we were riding on the boat, we’ve seen dolphins and behind the beaches are the huge and unexplored mountains. One of those has a face image of Mary on top.

When we arrived in Oriental Mindoro, our group checked-in at Oceana Beach Resort, considered as one of the best hotel in Puerto Galera. It contains wide variety of great amenities including comprehensive water sport center and outdoor swimming pool. Numerous beach beds are also available for sunbathing. There are cabanas all over the place wherein guests can have relaxing and soothing massages anytime they want. Aside from its different convenient room accommodations, the resort is very accessible specially when searching for exciting activities such as snorkeling, kayaking, and beach hopping. Furthermore the place also features scuba diving.

After we had our buffet lunch, we went to Puerto Galera White Beach, best known for its white fine sand and for having active night life with numerous bars and restaurants. The place offers thrilling activities such as banana boat, jetski and para-sailing. There are also lots of souvenir shop.

On the next day, we left Oceana Beach Resort for a road trip to Tukuran Falls. On our way, we saw another breath taking view, the Tamaraw falls. We stopped for a while to take pictures and buy some souvenirs. In order to get to Tukuran falls, we can either give in to the offer of local businessmen on riding carabaos or to take a walk and pass by almost five brooks on that place. My friends and I decided to walk so we could be able to explore and enjoy the spectacular view of the place. Tukuran Falls is also called as the hidden paradise. When we finally came into view, I could already spot its amazing rock formation.

On the 3rd day, we had the chance to discover dulangan, the place where our resort is located. It is a divers paradise because you can see different exotic marine life species. Then on evening, we go back to manila. The trip was totally worth it.
