“Good day trip from Manila”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

Except flying you can pretty much experience all modes of transport on this trip - automobile, car, boat, on foot and finally precariously perched atop a donkey !! Awesome panoramic views and sulphur fumes to affirm that there is still volcanic activity underneath ...

“Small and terrible”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2012

It is a small volcano which you can climb or go up riding a pony. Terrible because every now and then people on the island have be evacuated.
