Tukuran has a lot of rocks which are “tukod-tukod” that’s why this falls is called TUKURAN. It is located in Sitio Ibuye, Barangay Calsapa, San Teodoro, Oriental Mindoro. You will find it’s fun to visit Tukuran Falls because it’s an eco-tour with all natural forest, river, rocks, dogs, goose, carabaos, clean water, fresh air and friendly locals.

Tukuran Falls was spectacular due to the recent rainfall. The carabao-cart ride to the falls was good fun and the guide was very informative. You can swim in the falls when it is safe to do so. I enjoyed my climb up the falls and taking photos. I hired a local guide and van from PG Showaround which was more comfortable than a tricycle as it tales about 1 hour to get there from Sabang. The cost for the falls (excluding transport) is Php500 for the carabao-cart ride and Php50 per person at the falls. My best day out in Puerto Galera as you can also visit Tamaraw Waterfalls on the way there.

Went here when in Puerto Galera. Just love getting in the Philippine country. A ride on a carabio (not sure how u spell that) gets us to the falls. Lovely swimming hole, walking over the rocks. Had their BBQ lunch with a beer. Time to pay for everything. The 3 escort tourist girls, did help me walk over the rocks, gave them P100 each. Read where some people get up set about having to give them some pesos but gee only a couple of dollars & the girls said they don't have a salary just rely on what they get from the tourist. Then stopped at the tourist shop. The girls bought a dress, me just a fridge magnet. The trike driver was excellent comes with experience I guess. Ok do put this place on your "must go to" well worth a day trip.

The carabao-cart ride to the Tukuran Falls with a friendly and informative guide offered an insight into rural life, with local fruits and spices grown explained along the way. The falls offered an exciting climb and swimming was most enjoyable in the clear water pools above and below the falls. If you only do one thing in Puerto Galera this should be it. Just a pity the tour operators charge too much (Php1850 per person) and instead we took a local-hire tricycle to get to the falls to save money (Ph1,500 for all three of us, plus Php500 for the carabao-cart and Php50 per person at the falls)

These days we are under influence of a lot of political correctness, protection of gender, races, religion, you name it. But it`s funny how tourists never get any protection from governments, when they travel.
If you are white and travel, you are more likely to get ripped off, and this attraction is no exception.
It`s sad to say, but the Filipinos working as guides at Tukuran Falls just don`t have common sense. The consequences of taking advantage of tourists, and overpricing them, will only ruin their reputation, and could damage their only income.
Ironically I am white, but live here, and even do charity, so it`s even more damaging, when a local resident warn tourists to avoid certain places and activities.
They don`t even clean the place to maintain the beautiful surroundings. I had to tell them there was plastic bottles, paper and glass splinters left on the rocks.
So let this be a warning to those who plan to go to Tukuran Falls. There are no price list so therefore you need to start asking for the total costs before you head out for the falls.If you don`t they will just add accordingly to your color.
Good luck!

Tour of the falls can be done on your own, get to Tukuran and hire a cart ride pulled by a carabao to get to the falls, good the help locals to earn some money or take a tour booked by hotel or do your research, because we were asked for more money at the end of tour than advertised.

If you ask the tour bookies at White Beach in Puerto Galera, they would outright quote you PHP1,500 to go to Tukuran Falls and entice you that you could also explore Tamaraw Falls, the "Overlooking" (Jailyn's Restaurant), the Mangrove Forest and some other beach which are all along the way to Tukuran Falls.

We decided however to just do a DIY trip to Tukuran and find out how much it would really cost if we were to travel like Puerto Galera locals. So we started at the jeepney terminal found along the main road in White Beach at 6AM going to Tukuran and paid PHP70 each. If you are the first to board the jeep going to Calapan, you can choose to seat in front beside the driver so that you could ask for pointers along the way. In this process, we were able to make friends with Ron (the driver) and he pointed the various landmarks that we were passing i.e. Mangrove Forest, the overlooking, Tamaraw Falls, etc. He also told us that the jeep schedule going to Calapan ends at 11AM.

Stay at big Laguna so it’s 1 hr by road, took a jeepney (2500 peso ) which is the cheapest for big families. then had a trill on the carabao ride to the waterfall , absolutely worth it (about 20mins ) . Had pre pack food for the trip to the waterfall by a local villager for 3400 peso with chicken , huge shrimp n fish n papaya . Was even able to share with the locals who were hungry . Water was clean n there wasn’t any crowd . No rush for time but the locals follow us everywhere n was really asking for tips for whatever services they could render. Feel free to give .

Went here with family, you need to take carabao ride its it's quite a walk, they charged us 400php per cart. The falls you get taked to are ok but not the one in the pics, they say they're a 2 day hike into the jungle. Also as well, as paying for the ride you'll pay an entrance fee and then you'll pay to use a picnic table. I wouldn't recommend going here
