Must see. An active volcano in the middle of Taal Lake. We a little banka boat from Tagaytay to the base of the volcano. Since we had children we rented horses with guides. Paper masks are suggested for the dust. Smaller children can share a horse to save money. On the journey up we saw backpackers making the trip up/down... More

One of a kind experience! Nice to see the crater of one of the active volcanos in the Philippines. If you are mountaineer, you can surely just walk going to crated instead of renting a horse.

So, we took the horseback riding because it will be our first time and we’d like to try it. Riding a horse will take you to the crater for about 25 minutes. While walking will take... More

Since it is moderately active from time to time, the color of the water can turn from lush green to almost warm... More
