Boat touts harrased our taxi from the outskirts of Tagaytay all the way down the new concrete road wishing us Bad Karma from mororcycles. I could then see fear in my Filippino friends. It certainly did not appear safe to take a boat trip to the Volcano so we advised our driver to leave Tagaytay.

We got there early in the morning and the people at the boat site were offering us a package for 4500p each!!... More

This is the first time I have seem a active volcano near the crater. The water is close to boiling temperature. the other highlight is the horse ride up. Poor animal is struggling in some of the up slope. In the end we brought the animal some drinks and food. By the way my visit was like a few years... More
