Coco Beach was just the best place to be. It was so relaxing and only a few hours away from Manila! Away from most tourists (who tend to travel to more palces overe populated by tourists like Boracay or Cebu), it is a wonderful little haven.The "bahay kubo" or bamboo huts were wonderful,the scenery and food are fantastic, and the activities you can do there are varied and numerous enough to satisfy anyone's interests! You can do jungle treks, visit the Mangyan natives in the mountains, get massaged (for about US$8)see the waterfalls,take cooking lessons,etc. Waking up every morning wasn't a chore, it was a blessing!
Scuba diving there is great! The prices are the cheapestI've seen anywhere, and the instructors speak a number of different languages.The boat ride back to Manila was rewarding enough by itself, seeing wild dolphins swim right beside our boat!
Only one downside- the water is a bit hard, understandably because it is on an island that has not been developed like major cities. Bring your own shampoo and soap that will help soften your hair, or get it shampooed (for VERY CHEAP) at the salon.
