Summer is in! I’m sure everyone is making their own plans where to spend their time to beat the heat. Check out Masasa Beach in Tingloy Batangas. It is heralded as the municipality’s number one tourist spot today. Why not? This once sleepy island municipality has everything in one place. To help you out in deciding whether Masasa Beach is for you, here is a list of 10 things to do when in Masasa Beach.
It was 5:15 AM and darkness still lingers when we left the house where we were staying to start on our trek to Mt. Mag-Asawang Bato. Feeling the morning breeze blowing gently made my body chill. I was with my father, siblings, 12-year old niece and cousin during this hike. Our guide said that it would take about an hour to get to the peak of Mt. Mag-Asawang Bato for beginners like us (we were all beginners except for my brother and his girlfriend) however for them they can do it in 30 minutes.
Hmmm…Was it really that easy?
When I first wandered on the streets of Old San Juan Puerto Rico, I visited the famous sites in the city and that walking tour definitely made me hungry. Good thing I have passed by some place where I can find local Puerto Rican street food.
Aside from Forts that are recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Sites and other remarkable landmarks along its streets, Old San Juan is also a foodies’ heaven. From authentic Puerto Rican food to Spanish inspired and international fares even food trucks, every corner and every turn has its own culinary delights. There are budget dining options to upscale restaurants that will fit anyone’s budget.
So, you’re new to traveling solo but not ready for a DIY tour just yet. You want to go around the area but you do not know how to. It is definitely scary at first especially if you’re not used to being alone in a strange place. To join a group tour would be your best option if you haven’t found that full confidence to be on your own yet. Here are 5 reasons why you should consider to join a group tour.
Huge raindrops started to fall, I ran down to the nearest covered stopover and in no time the whole town was already drenched in rain water. As much as I wanted to go all the way down, I could not risk the gadgets that I have in my bag getting wet, so I have decided to stay put to wait the rain out. That was when my not so ordinary travel story at Mt. Tapyas in Coron all started.
We’ve been starting the year right so far. I know that this is not a major recognition but I am glad that in my own little way I was able to make an impact to those who have read the experiences that I share in this blog.
Woah! What a really great way to start the year 2017 with a Liebster Award. I started blogging about my travel experiences last August 2016 and I just can’t believe it that the blog got recognized. I humbly accept the nomination and I would like to say a big THANK YOU to fellow blogger, Kat Cortes of Tara Lets Anywhere for considering my work.
In my quest to explore places, I embarked on a journey to the Ruins of Tulum to understand the reasons what made it one of the most-visited sites in Mexico.
Amidst the highly urbanized city of San Juan in Puerto Rico still lies the walled city of Old San Juan. Travel back in time as you wander the streets on Old San Juan. Here are some of the places that I have stumbled upon when I went on a city walk on the historic cobblestone streets.
Tulum Ruins is known to be as one of the best-preserved coastal Maya sites. It was formerly known as Zama which means “City of Dawn” as it faces the rising sun. Apart from Chichen Itza and Teotihuacan, it is third of the archeological attractions in Mexico that is most-visited by tourists. The ruins is located approximately 40-45 minutes away of Playa del Carmen in the Mexican State of Quintana Roo. An average of 3200 visitors travel to this place which is a part of the Maya Riviera in the Yucatan Peninsula.
These defenses are made of solid stone walls that had kept the city safe from invaders since the mid-1500s. Today, these forts are a part of the San Juan National Historic Site and recognized as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Seeing these defensive walls and especially the guerites (in Spanish, garita), sentry boxes or watchtowers made me reminisce of something familiar from back home, it reminded me of our very own Intramuros, “Walled City” in Manila, Philippines.
It has been a few weeks since I first set foot in St. Maarten’s Mullet Bay Beach and I was taken aback after realizing her magnificence. It was a short and sweet encounter and it seemed to be that I can’t get enough of her; from then on, I made a promise to myself to meet up with her again. The next Wednesday came, I went on my way following the same course to her location feeling more at ease and blissful than the last time.
Tourists flock by the hundreds to take pleasure and plunge in its aquamarine waters, amble on its white sand beach, unwind on a bench under the sun or feast in its local food and beverage from the restaurants nearby. But it has something more than that, something that is peculiarly seen in St. Maarten. Something called the Maho Beach Experience.
The Caribbean region is known to be a first rate tourist destination because of the island’s tropical weather and pristine beaches with crystal clear waters. One of the most sought after island by holiday seekers is St. Maarten (Sint Martin).
