Day 1: Take a boat to the island Taal island to hike up the volcano. The path was quite hot and it was incredibly frustrating to hike with all the horses blowing by without warning or care. I'd suggest to pay the price to take the horse up if only to avoid being a pedestrian on that path! I had a few narrow misses but one girl wasn't so lucky and got clipped by a horse and stumbled down some rocks.

The view was nice but not spectacular. You can golf into the inner lake for a fee if you wanted.

The rest of the day was heading to Puerto Galera by bus and van. But I missed the last ferry as the 3h trip was actually 6h.

Day 2 - onwards: I stayed in Puerto Galera for about a week. I went diving a couple of times although it was ok, but nothing compared to other sites in the Philippines. I spent alot of time relaxing, unwinding on the beach and in the room.
