    We have the cave all to ourselves and the tour guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. It wasn't as good as the underground river in Palawan but it was a unique experience nonetheless. My daughter was looking forward for the bats but I guess they were all tired and hibernating. Some of the rock formation were captivating as well as the crystals. It was also naturally cool/ventilated inside (I was surprised), thought it would be very hot and cramp. It was a good experience, only downside was it was raining when we came out of the cave and can not see the Mayon volcano on the horizon. Would have been really perfect if it wasn't.

    Great beach if not too crowded. Try to come before the afternoon and on a weekday and you will enjoy. Watch the kids cause of the undertow of the waves.

    I really love this place and the locals the way they welcome us is very warm and very approachable. The entire vicinity is very cool and amazing especially the rock formation inside the cave and I like the activity here since this is my first time going here and encountering spelunking. I really recommend this place, especially to our family and friends.

    Looking for a peaceful and not crowded place to unwind then Talisayin Cove is perfect for you. You will enjoy the serenity in this cove and don't worry about the electricity for they have until midnight. Just bring all the possible needed things to make your stay hassle free. Would love to go back this summer.

    As someone who's has never climbed a mountain before, my co-worker invited me to climb 3 mountains in one day. Thinking that the hike might be easy (who can climb 3 difficult mountains in one day, why would people organize something crazy like that) I agreed and asked him if he thinks I can do it. He told me I could. He was right (sort of) but I still hated him for it.

    By 3 am we were already on our way to Rodriguez via a jeepney ride to Montalban. Afterwards, a trike to the foot of the mountains where you can also change (there are bathrooms and showers) and buy some climbing gloves and caps (I got a pair for P50, still have it until today).

    Paid the fee and my co-worker already has an existing contact for a tour guide (this would be his second time climbing the mountains) and we were all set.

    Climbing the first mountain at 4 am for me was a challenge; granted I am not the most fit person in the planet but wow that hike up was exhausting and long. It was also dark and rocky but my coworker has advised me early on to pack a flashlight (w/c I did). It wasn't easy to hold the flashlight and use my other hand as a guide to hold on to rocks/stems/branches. My coworker basically had to give me his headlight while he took my flashlight so I can free my 2 hands and not fall off the giant (to me at least, I'm 5 feet) boulders. Also, I don't wear contact lenses so the headlight was basically hitting my glasses half the time making my vision quite unsteady. Thank god for a cap, so bring a cap! It also stopped the excessive sweat from falling down my eyes like a freaking waterfall.

    I honestly would've given up because this was not my idea of fun and I was way out of my comfort zone (which was the point but still) but my companions encouraged me and were very patient with me. Every time I said I need a break they were chill and like yeah we could all use a break. Basically, if you want to go on this trilogy make sure your companions don't mind waiting for you to catch your breath/sanity.

    Can you tell I am not outdoorsy?

    The sunrise was worth it though.

    The second mountain was easier to climb but afterwards, I was just basically breathless and honestly, not physically prepared to climb 3 mountains. My tour guide, knowing this is my first hike, was so proud of me. I am not the kind of person who takes posed photos but he said I should have a record of my 'feat.' To be fair it is an amazing feat for me so yeah I posed on top of a rock.

    The dogs of the mountain were faster than me, seriously. I made it halfway thru the third one and just had to stop because I was too tired. I urged my companions to go on without me and I just rested and read a book in one of the dining areas (made of bamboo, the air was refreshing. This was honestly the best part of the climb for me.)

    After an hour and 30 minutes, my companions completed the trilogy and we rested together then headed over to the Wawa dam for a shower. That was refreshing too and while I definitely teased my co-worker that he almost murdered me from exhaustion, I'm glad he asked me to go on this adventure with them. Would I come back? Only if someone dared me to.

    Been here thrice already, make sure you have proper footwear before anything else. Food and water will not be a problem since you can ask the locals to cook food for you...(sinampalukan, tinola or adobong manok for lunch, breakfast also available - scrambled eggs and bread, coffee/hot chocolate). Php80.00 per head if more than five persons otherwise Php90.00. Cottage price ranges from Php150 to Php250. Overnight stay is also available- Php800 per night, they also have campsites, you can bring your own tents.

    It is also advisable to go there as early at 6:30 or 7:00am, nice to hear the sounds of mother nature. I just hope they would get rid of the videoke machines. It's very annoying and you can't fully enjoy nature. Also, proper use of their toilet is being encouraged, some people doesn't know how to use it properly.

    People who go there sometimes throw trash everywhere, kinda disappointing but you can tell them to stop doing it or better pick it up and throw in a trash bin.

    Schedule your trip June/July onwards but take note that you shouldn't go there a day after the rain, water is not clear and swimming in the river is not advisable due to strong current.

    Don't expect too much.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this cave and rather enjoyed our walk through it with a guide, who was fairly knowledgeable. There are no lights or commercialization here, so it is handy to have a torch - I used my phone. There are some interesting formations on level 1 and 2 - where we went. You are issued with a helmet when you go in. We did not do level 3 to 5, as it involved crawling and tight spaces, etc. it’s not a “must see” place, but glad we went, as we combined it with a trip to the Daranak Falls. It was slippery, wet and muddy in places. It also has a bit of military history.

    When visiting Sagada this is of course a must see, but only once will do. At the time we go, Sagada just "opened" and only limited tours were available. Sign up a day before for the tour. It is a 2 hours hike in total easy to medium. The guide was very nice and accommodating. The coffins itself you only see like 10 and it is an interesting way to be buried but once you seen it it is OK.

    Me and my family always go here to visit and have some time for ourselves to meditate on what the Lord whats to say to us . This is great place to just sit and observe while you talk to God on your own . My house is just near here that’s why me and my family always go here . This is a place to visit and it is also amazing because it is inside of a cave ! 🤞🏻

    the path was tricky, but the view was worth it just beware of suspicious rocks and the funny looking grass.

    I have visited a few caves in the country and it's always similar-- stalagmites, stalactites, crystals, dripping water from the ceiling, pool of water, rock formations, others.But if you believe on the agony of Jesus Christ and with much of imagination the rock formations and structures on the walls and on the floor become mystical---of course with the aid of a guide.
    The guide uses the beam to show you the half side of the lying image of the body of Christ .The beam also shows a half image of a skull Another shows the the Virgin Mary carrying the baby Jesus. There are other formations he calls the Apostles. There is also a wishing well, a dried pool and "bell" that when hit hard by your hand produces a ding-dong sound of an ancient bell---if you would imagine it as sound from a bell.
    During my recent visit there was a group of touch healers who came to draw some "powers" from the mystical cave. They regularly use the cave to pray, according to Lito, my guide.My advice is take the Marcos highway access if you have your own car. Upon reaching the boundary of barrio San Luis turn right to a rough road and in less than five kilometers you are at the foot of a pathway going to the cave entrance. Do not use the Antipolo City access because of the steep downhill and uphill road that traverses through a private subdivision. If you commute, motorcab fare from the highway is 40 pesos per head. From the cathedral it's P150 per trip. There are trips going back to the highway.

    the place is good for swimming clean and almost no rocks ,you can do island hopping and jet ski ,my kids enjoyed fish feeding taking small boat for 1800 like two to three hours ,as for the place has plenty of rooms ,we got duplex good ,but they don't provide towels so better bring yours ,also they have one restaurant and food choices are limited to beef tapa ,fried chicken and sinigang shrimp ,boring if you stay couple of days ,out side near restaurants and supermarket like 20 minutes and either mcdo ,jolibbe,inasal and an Italian pizza place and l bulalao ,so not much choices this make the place good fro two days ,stairs is problem you need to go down with your things and up with them ,not that good for old people.plus you need to pay 430 entrance per day and service charge for each day !?
