Puerto Galera

We have planned trips to Banaue and Tagatay/ Pagsanjan as well as day trips around Manila - but we have another couple of days to fill in. We want to see fishing villages and farming areas as well. We thought of going over to Puerto Galera, too. Is there much to see if we go across for two days? Or is there somewhere else on Luzon that we should see. We prefer areas that are off the beaten track if possible. We have TD as our guide for most of the time.

Thank you for any help you can give.

If by two days you mean just one night in Puerto Galera then it may not be worth it considering the time to travel there, ferry crossings etc. If what you are after is a quick trip to the beach then some other places in Batangas will do, you'll have more time to enjoy the place.

You mentioned day trips around Manila, have you considered options like Corregidor, the circuit of old churches around Laguna de Bay, or the 'Viaje del Sol' around Laguna and Quezon?

We had TD drop us off at the Batangas Port where you catch a pumpboat or ferry to PG.
