Travelled through Tagaytay and stopped to see Taal volcano. A beautiful place and breathtaking views. We stopped at Starbucks which has the most amazing location and perfect views. We didn't get the opportunity to take the boat ride but will defiantly be going again so it will be on our list of things to do the next time.

Easy hike for intermediate. You have the option to ride a horse or hike if you preferred. Bottom line, I love the view from top. Try the fresh cut coconut juice, very refreshing and the staff are very friendly :)

We often visit Taal Volcano due to it's location near our place. We also love it's view in Tagaytay just chilling and doing bonding activities with friends and family. The cold climate invites you to return all the time. Experience nature at it's best.

Good place for nature lover. However, the traffic in the city is very heavy. Fruit stand along the highway are selling fresh and cheap fruits, mostly pineapple, banana and jackfruit.

We visited Taal volcano back in May this year, and it was a lovely day out. Across the lake by boat, onto a donkey and a dusty trek up the mountain in the hot sun - but it was worth it for the view, into the volcano and of the great scenery 360 degrees around you. On getting a donkey,... More

Ok for a visit....probably would have been better a few years ago. ..development is moving in and you can see it probably had a lot more character a while ago..still ok but the haphazard tour guides or trike riders will rip u off...this to me is the biggest sign in the Philippines that indicates crooks have moved in and influence...
