“Pristine and gorgeous”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2014

The air is cooler and cleaner here. We arrived here late in the afternoon and no one else was there and the place was peaceful but eerie. The stillness of the lake and the fading light in the forested area is refreshingly cool. I have been here twice and would return for a whole day stay the next time.

“pure nature”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014

It's a MUST for all nature lovers! Beautiful lake, sensational mountain view... clean and green! rent a bike and take this adventure ride! Don't be disappointed if you have to pay more entrance fee as a foreigner. Other countries - other customs (unfortunately)

“relaxing place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2014

it was our first time to go there and were so amazed by the scenery, the ocean view was very nice, and you could really feel nature at its very best, with the different sound of the birds around.

“Post Diving Relaxation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014

This beautiful location takes you to the top of the peaks above Dumaguete. Two fresh water lakes are linked together by a path that's either walkable or rent a kayak to the other side. On one end of the first lake we discovered a sign that indicated a waterfall was close by. We ventured up and and found these cool water pools...breath taking! This was a great way to spend our last day in paradise.

“Twin Lakes”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Getting to Twin Lakes is adventure in itself. Located in San Jose you have take bus to the road going up the mountain than take motorbike the rest of the way. The road sometimes is rocky and exciting. Before getting to Twin Lakes there is a stop to pay your fees and you can ask questions about the park. Once you get to the lakes there is visitor area which u can relax and get cold drink. The is a steep walkway or stairs going down to the lake, Take the small boat for a tour of the lake, Last time I was there the observation tower had been burned down but still is nice to walk to the second smaller lake, Your guide can take you the the falls at the far end of the lake. Very pretty and relaxing and the water in the creek is soooo clear which is very rare in the Philippines. Is worth the long ride to get there.
