    From afar, the Taal Lake is magnificent. Trying getting upclose and personal. There are geysers along the way.

Ut would be cheaper to bring your own though but unless you have a trusty coleman,...

  • Pampering and Nurturing Yourself

    Nuture Spa has long been a travel destination in Tagaytay especially for those looking for R&R- spa in particular.

Nurture spa offers accomodation...
