It's ok for a few pictures. That's about it. I have been fortunate enough to have seen magnificent falls And swim in there breathtaking pools. So I'm a bit biased.

We went here last January 2014. Since our budget is tight, my wife and I settled to commute going here. Tricycle going to Sabang is 100Php for the two of us and the jeepney ride costs us 35Php per head. Travel time is almost 45 minutes from White beach. Once you got there, you need to pay 100 pesos to... More

Really great view on the way. Clean and refreshing dip in the waterfalls will perk you up after the long drive.

The drive from Calapan City to Puerto Galera is but an hour away. The roads which have been completed during the year makes the travel quite easy. Winding mountain roads with the view of the sea on the right side of the roads provide the traveler a window to the natural beauty of Mindoro. The highlight of the drive is... More

The falls was pretty fine. They have a place where you can order food, the food were okay for me, but that place was dirty and the bathroom there was really gross.

We were told Tamaraw Waterfalls were lovely but they weren't in our opinion. We found out when there, that the best time to visit is between 10:00 and 12:00, which is the only time that the sun is on the water. They are not natural (anymore) but have been built up as a concrete swimming pool and picnic area, so... More

We hired a tricycle to get to this site and when we got off- lo and behold, a majestic waterfall on your right and flows down to a cliff on your left. The cliff is not so dangerous because the government converted a part of it to be a natural pool. The edges are constructed but the floor is soil/sand... More

Departed Puerto Galera at 8am on a motorcycle headed to Calapan City Port to get a Roll on Roll Off to Batangas. Twenty five meters from the falls one of 2 men with their motorcycle parked along the guard rails attempted a hold up using a speargun (pana). They backed off when a van appeared behind us. We immediately reported... More
