Many say that Taal Volcano is the smallest volcano in the world, which is not quite right. What many people consider as "Taal Volcano" is actually just one of the cones of a much larger volcano, which in turn is inside a big lake. To...More

Good for a family to explore together. Once you've arrived, a boat trip across a lake, then a choice of walking or horseback to see the volcano with a lake. A lake in a volcano in a lake.
