You'll need to take your own food and water. See if you can share the cost of the boat with other people to save money. It can get busy there and Filipinos can be quite noisy, especially the kids of course. No toilet facilities that...More

You'll see snakes, jellyfish and other marine animals here. Great place right? Its just makes me sad that the visitors and the caretakers are abusive and just after money and good photos.
