Puerto Galera Beaches, Big La Laguna

Sometimes when walking around int he tourist spots in Puerto Galera one has to wonder where those beaches are. In Sabang it is easy, not much m=beach left. Although they make a nice attempt to recreate the beach feel in the right side of the parking area at the end of the road entering Sabang. I saw the other day that that little cove is all sandy now. The other side, where all the stone walls of restaurants and dive…

What to do when you get a STD in Puerto Galera?

What to do when you get a STD in Puerto Galera?

Puerto Galera has many sides to it. Beautiful nature, nice beaches, and a buzzing nightlife. And it is one of the Philippines hotspots for sex-tourism for both gay and straight.

The benefits of an all inclusive in those days were that you can get used to the country and overcome your culture shock within save boundaries of hotel grounds. With not a lot to…

From Boracay to Mindoro Island on to Puerto Galera

From Boracay to Mindoro Island on to Puerto Galera

Leaving Boracay Island and heading on north you may have some trouble finding information in the internet about ferry schedules and connecting busses. In the Philippines schedules are dodgy and sometimes even non existing. You just have to trust that whenever a ferry docks transportation will be available and with it lots of helpful people that know a way out of the port area. But it is nice to know whether or not you can reach your next destination in…
