Hi everyone. With recent news of increased kidnapping in the southern part of Cebu. I'd like to ask if it is safe to travel to Puerto Galera, about 300 miles North-West of Cebu. If any travellers have visited Puerto Galera recently, or any local residence of Mindoro Oriental, would really appreciate your feedback on any safety concerns. Thank You!
Can you tell me which bus station would be the best solution for traveling to PG.
We arrive to Manila around 6 pm - to the airport in December.
Should we sleep over and take the morning bus?

Hi, One of my friends from japan is visiting home and we're planning on going to PG on Jan 6th-8th 2013 and we're still students so we're on a really tight budget. I wanna know if this site is legit they have a good deal but idk if its a scam or not. " , , ;" also if any of you knows any package deal for or less than 3000/person that would be great, and would we be spending less if we dont avail any of the packages and just look for cheaper hotels on the spot?
We will be going to PG White beach tomorrow (Oct 12), since there is a typhoon Santi, is it safe to travel from Batangas Pier to PG?
Hi I am thinking of spending a week at Puerto Galera in November and want to work for some of that time. Various hotels say they have wifi access but does anyone know how stable and efficient it is?
Last time I was in the country, 2011, the internet access was a it dodgy.
We are planning to visit Coco Beach Resort this end of August as we will be flying to Manila during that time, is it safe to travel during that period considering its weather condition? we opt to travel on a morning trip (less wave)?
how to get from sabang to white beach
Been a while since my last post. Another where-to-stay question I'm afraid.
Done my research and have been to PG before. But the situation is a bit different this time. The missus and I are returning to PH in November (16-19th) and would like to treat her family to PG outing.
We are a party of 9 in total (couple plus five adults and 1 child under 5yrs).
I was thinking one room for missus and I, and another for the clan.
The only place on White Beach that comes close on price and location is the DreamWave Hotel. But I have heard of a few bad reviews about bedbugs and other such tales.
We have stayed at Mandelluke Suites next door, but they don't have a room for 5 adults.
Do you have any experience or suggestions for places?
Reasonable standards for rooms and AC. Not budget but also not expensive either as I'll be paying for all.
We also intend to not pre-book but to get to White Beach and then decide. Is this going to be risky since we are going during or start of peak period?
Hi! Me and my boyfriend are planning to go in a 3 days 2 nights vacation in PG on the first week of june. Im trying to find the best resort where we can stay but reading a lot of reviews makes me confuse..can you help we to find a best resort with affordable price? Thanks in advance!
we're going to Dulangan, Puerto Galera and it's our first time going there. My concerns are: ferry ride from batangas to PG, is it going the same destination/pier in PG? where exactly Bgry. Dulangan is located, nearest pier in that area? and much and do we have to buy in advance?
planning on vacationing for a few days in pg. saw whitesand beach in youtube and didn't find it appealing. looking for nice beach, clean, with restaurants that serve delicious but affordable food; like most, looking for affordable nice accomodation for 5 adults, 2 teens and 1 kid. we can stay in 1 big studio so long as there's ample number of beds. would like a native style cottage. and also would accomodate pets. what beach resort has this description? and of course, how much will we be spending? also anxious about transpo. will the ferries and banca and roro take in pets? how much will we spend if we brought our vehicle. we were told we can leave it in calapan, after roro, but we can take it all the way to the resort, can't we?
oh, and yes, one more very important question needing an answer. are the waves big during this time of the year? dec. 2011? it rains almost everyday in manila and the adults are worried about traveling by sea and concerned that we might not be able to enjoy swimming if the waves are big or if it is "typhoony"
We're a group of 3 adults planning to visit PG for the first time. We'd like to stay in a peaceful place/beach that is not so far from crazy Sabang. We'd like to do some water activities during the day like snorkelling, island-hopping and probably, just probably, intro diving. Hiking would also be okay. At night we'd like to explore and enjoy Sabang ;). My querries are:
1. Which beach to stay?
2. Recommended cheap but clean accomodation.
3. Recommended restos.
4. Recommended hangout at Sabang.
5. How/where/how much to arrange hiking, snorkelling, island-hopping, etc.?
6. Banca options and prices from Batangas to PG?
TIA fellow VTers!
Hi, Can anyone give me an idea of how much it would cost to take a car (Honda CRV) on the car ferry from Batangas to Muelle Pier and also is it possible to book a place? Thanks for your help.

Hey, Is there any spearfishing trips etc. available out of Puerto? I'm a keen spearo from Australia and thinking about a trip in April. I only use snorkelling equipment and would prefer shallow dives.
Hi! My agents and I will go to puerto galera this october 16 (pm) until october 18 (lunch) i have questions and i hope you can help me fellow vters
1. Do you have any contact person for van rental from makati to batangas port for 15 pax?
2. Do you know any house/apartment/room for rent for big groups that are not expensive?
3. Travel time of Ferrys
Hi, I'm considering a ten day trip to PI in mid September for diving. I only have OW cert(PADI), and not many dives since being certified two years ago. I was originally thinking of the Visayas, but I really would rather not use my travel time just to get to a more remote locale, (such as Cebu, Bohol or Sipalay, maybe next time), so now I'm thinking of PG which is relatively close to Manila and the airport.
What about PG and the surrounding area? Does anyone have an opinion about diving in the area? I hear that Sabang is good with other spots also nearby.
Any recommendations for diving site, operator/centers, rooms, eats and nightlife would be greatly asppreciated. I'm looking for someplace not too busy. I'm traveling alone and I don't need a 5* resort, clean and cheap would do just fine.
Thanks fellow travellers
we are going to stay at Tamaraw Beach Resort in Aninuan for a few days in late June. We'll arrive in Manila and the question is how to get to the resort?
I guess we'll just take a bus from Manila to Batangas and then hop on one of the ferries to Puerto Galera. Does anyone know if we'll have to take another boat from there to Tamaraw Beach? I tried to get in contact with the people from the resort but I didn't get any reply.
And one question about the weather: I know it's gonna be rainy season and it could be sunny or pouring down the whole day or just anything in between...but what can you "usually" expect? I wouldn't mind a rain shower every day as long as it's not too bad...
Thanks in advance, any advice is welcome!
balak sana naming magpunta this week sa puerto...oks pa ba? nde ba maalon ang dagat at maulan ngayon jan...kasi dito sa manila maulan sa hapon. mga tga puerto galera ano masasabi nyo? may mga kasama kasi kaming kids....thanks all
