Things to see
At the Visitors' Centre you can book a boat to swim with the whale sharks. Each boat is 3500PHP (60€) and for maximum 6 people. The earlier you are there, the more chances you have to meet people there to share the boat with. Rent your snorkelling there as well (300 PHP, 5€). Once you're with the whale shark, it is just impressive to see how relax it seems to be. And it is much quicker than what it seem
Always the same cliché, but still beautiful !
We followed a local there but were kind of disappointed. What is called El Grotto is a path, retracing Jesus life, and ending on a sort of open air place of prayer, with a statue of Marie. Not really what we expected when he told us that El Grotto was a cave. The path is in the middle of the jungle though, which makes it much more interesting !
Pig's ears, chicken legs or heads... You will find a lot to satisfy your curiosity ^^
500 PHP for a double room with fan. The staff is almost invisible and pretty nice. They only have 4 rooms so you can be sure that you will have a good spot on the terrace !
Cheap and good local dishes
