    On my recent trip to Port Barton i came across the attached sign for camping on this beach.

    Busuanga Local Customs

    As Metro Manilans, we were just accustomed to our fast paced way of life where instructions were given as one-liners. We were quite surprised that we encountered at least 2x people from Busuanga who felt offended by our one liners. Example: when we were picked up by a 3rd party provider of our hotel, we instructed the loader person to put our cabin...

    Busuanga Restaurants

    I normally surf for the local best when visiting a place. Bistro Coron was one of the recommended place to eat in Coron. I was very disappointed with the menu and the service. Ordered their house specialty - Beef Bourguignon. It was a one plate meal served with rice. The beef sauce was passable for the french dish but what turned me off was the...

    If you are staying at Sunset Lodge it is actually a great place to get up early and catch the sunrise and not sunset as the name implies.

The outlines of the surrounding mountains gradually became clearer as the...

    If you wish to travel to Rizal which is around 75 kms away on the west coast be prepared for a long day.
