Puerto Galera Inland Tour

On our second day in Puerto Galera, we went on an inland tour to Tamaraw falls, Ponderosa and Mangyan village. It was another celebration since this was the actual birthday of Ykaie (Nov.19) The tour cost was Php2,000 courtesy of my sister ( Ykaie's Mom). We bought a pot of rice from the resort where we were staying then the tour guide dropped us off at the market so we could buy some fruits and seafoods to take to the falls for our picnic lunch. He grilled the seafoods for us.


Tamaraw Falls










Swimming area for adults




below is the swimming area for the kids



I never thought I would take a dip in the water since I didn't bring extra clothes. But the water looks inviting! I needed to buy a shirt afterwards. Nope, I didn't change undies. lol! Oh well, I wasn't the only one!



The water was cold!



Ykaie I assure you next year you'll have a real birthday cake!




We had grilled squid, prawns, tilapia and liempo.






Our next stop was at Ponderosa Golf Club. I love the scenic view here!



Overlooking Puerto Galera







Mangyan Village- we were not able to explore the village since 2 of my realtives needed to use the restroom. We just took a few pictures then went straight back to the resort.

Ok lng kahit walang birthday cake si Ykaie, the prawn alone made up for it. Nagutom tuloy ako :(

I have yet to see the Tamaraw falls. We weren't able to Island hop when we went to PG because waves were really huge the whole time we were there. Nakaka trauma ang alon. Hindi namin alam kung paano kami uuwi. 45 minute-ride seemed like a lifetime. haha

To Ykaie, don't feel bad because your cake was equally expensive. haha ang mahal kaya sa palengke dyan.

Great pics, Anney!

i remember going up to the Mangyan Village in Puerto Galera.. but that was 12-13 years ago. They lived in this very small huts... as in very small... and we climbed a mountain to go to that village... unfortunately i lent the pictures to somebody and never got those pictures again hahaha.... there was no digital camera then:-).
