I went with One life adventure tour to this place and I had the best time. You got to climb coconut trees, fishing and traditional philippino dance. If you're able to do it, definitely do it.

Thanks Matas! That is definitely an experience worth thinking about including. If we can work out a supply and how to keep them warm it could be fun / freaky :)
