      Diving in Anilao Batangas.

      Anilao Mar 25, 2015 at 10:34 PM

      I'm planning to go to Anilao Batangas next month and my plan is to experience diving. However, I'm quite confused with the diving rules. Can I experience diving to those nice diving spot in Anilao even if I'm not a certified diver or do I need to take diving course/certificate first before I'll be allowed to dive? I have no plan to make diving a career in my life, I just want to experience it. I only want it as a one in a lifetime experience.

    • Additional information: Manila Nightlife

      Boracay Island Mar 23, 2015 at 12:04 AM

      So to get to Boracay, I will have to spend a night or two in Manila. Sounds exciting. I am, however, very uninformed about the area.

      Please answer the following questions, if possible and knowledgeable:

      1. I will be flying from Hawaii to Manila. Long-ish flight. Is there a hotel by the airport that is close to the nightlife?
      2. I would like to avoid "girly bars" / prostitutes / ______ / pay for ______. Is this possible?
      3. Only staying 1 - 3 nights. Not looking for wholesome entertainment, but perhaps, a good bar with cheap beer and nice people to talk to.
      4. Any "main drag" like Bangkok's Sukhumvit? If so, what is the name and proximity to the airport?
      5. Any good, budget hotels in this area? Maybe $30 - 60 USD per nite?

      Thank you in advance for your responses.

      Oh, yeah.

      I am a white American. I have read that the most dangerous part of landing in Manila is negotiating a taxi cab to my hotel. I am well-traveled, but what is the likelihood of robbery if arriving late at night. Mind you, I will get a legitimate taxi with no one in the back seat.

      Any and all answers are appreciated. Thank you. :)

    • Can anybody please assist in this matter?

      Boracay Island Mar 18, 2015 at 7:21 PM

      Hello,

      I am a white, 30-something American who is interested in spending the summer months of June - August in Boracay. I am educated, professional, and well-traveled and have spent time in Bangkok, Thailand, Bali, Indonesia, and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

      I have a few questions to ask regarding travels to and stays in Boracay.

      1. How old are the typical visitors to Boracay who enjoy the nightlife / party scene? Are they in there 20s, or are there people in their 30s, 40s, and 50s there, too? Are there many westerners there?

      Bangkok and Bali both had visitors from their teens to their 70s, so that was cool. Is Boracay the same?

      2. Do the women express interest in westerners? If so, what is their motivation?

      I enjoyed the attention of members of the opposite sex during my travels throughout Thailand and Indonesia, but they were not exactly after my good looks. In Mexico, it was close to impossible to get the attention of women because I felt that they saw me as a white tourist with limited Spanish speaking skills.

      3. Is the nightlife scene lively 7 nights a week? Or is it only on the weekends? Are some nights better than others?

      4. Is it okay to enjoy alcoholic beverages in the open, or should I keep them concealed? Mind you, I am not going to be stumbling drunk down the beach with a keg, but rather discreet and enjoying a cold beer under the shade of a tree.

      5. Is it possible to rent an apartment there? Or is my only option to check in to a hotel? If apartments are available, what is the weekly / monthly rate in pesos?

      6. Will I get bored if I stay over sixty days?

      7. What is the nightlife like during late May to early August?

      I have read that this is the low-season, but a huge part of the reason why I am interested in visiting Boracay is for its nightlife. The only time during the year that I can visit is from late May till early August.

      I DO NOT MIND CROWDS. I like a bustling nightlife. Though it is no doubt tuned down during the low-season, I need assistance in answering these questions:

      a. Can I still expect a bustling nightlife?
      b. Will all the bars and clubs be open?
      c. Will there be people on the streets enjoying themselves?
      d. Will there be other westerners there?
      e. Will the bars and clubs stay open late into the night?
      f. Will it be possible to go to the bars and clubs 7 nights a week?

      I know this is a lot to ask and some of it even redundant, but I have been involved on numerous forums about foreign destinations in the past and have always enjoyed some of the insight and information that members with intimate knowledge of those locations have provided in the past, and I hope to find some useful information here on this forum.

      Again, I would appreciate any and all helpful responses. I hope to hear from you soon.

      Thank you.

      Mactan Island Mar 23, 2006 at 11:48 PM

      Am in between jobs at the moment and have a week left to go somewhere.
      Have set my sights on Cebu Island. However, am undecided about the accomodation. Will be there from 28th March to 1st April so urgently need some recommendations.

      1) At the price of around USD 80, which accomodations would be recommended?
      Have checked the rates for Maribago Bluewater, Cebu Beach Club, Tambuli Beach Club (East or West wing) and they r okay. Which ones are better?
      Is it wort paying the additional price for a stay at Plantation Resort? It looks beautiful. Does anybody have a contact email/tel no. of Mari Cielo resort? Is that near the beach as well?

      What I would like is a resort where the beach is just at your doorstep, if not within the resort compound. Something not too big and commercialised. Snorkelling facilities

      2) Any recommendations at Cebu City? Should I stay overnight at Cebu City or only make day trips in the city?

      2a) Or should I use the city as a base and make day trips to neaby towns? Bohol? What other places?

      Am a Catholic as well and would love to see the Catholic heritage of the city.
      If possible, does anybody have the contact of a retreat centre where a 1 daY silent retreat can be planned at short notice?

      Thank you So much!

      Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort

      Mactan Island Dec 31, 2004 at 6:26 PM

      After reading all the comparisons between Plantation Bay and Maribago Bluewater Beach Resort, can anybody provide me with some up-to-date impressions on the latter?!? So far, opinions vary from 'bad' to 'very good' and it's hard to judge the hotel's quality. Did anyone stay there recently? I'm planning to go there around February... Thanks a lot, Robert

      looking for a place to stay in the Mactan Island, Mandaue city, Cebu city area. I am not really interested in a hotel. Something small and simple, though I would like a/c. By the beach would be wonderful. Thanks! Joel

      We have just booked into the Maribago and I am now worrying that we should have booked into Plantation Bay, does anyone know how good this hotel is. We are used to four/five establishments and hope this is up to standard. Look forward to your comments on this. Thank you.

      I have just booked a package to fly into Cebu 5 Nov. - 9 Nov. 2003 inclusively and shall be staying at the Maribago Bluewater Resort. Since this is my first time to visit the Philippines, I've got some questions to ask: 1. Is it advisable to exchange foreign currency at Cebu's airport? 2. What is the tipping rate in Philippines? How much for the bellboy, etc.? 3. What are some must-sees in Cebu? Any available local tour operators for suggestions? 4. Any special souvenirs to bring back home? 5. What types of food can be found in Cebu? What are the typical prices? 6. Where are good snorkelling locations? Thanks! Regards, Vincent
