hi there, everybody! I'm Preida, F/23 from the Philippines. If you're looking for a place to visit at, i'm inviting you to come in our country and be our guests. We have lots of place to visit such as resorts, beaches, hotels, festivities and nice sceneries. A tropical temperature that most people are looking for.

We are a spanish couple and we are planning a trip in Philippines, but there are lots of interesting places and it's difficult to choose.

we like diving and different landscapes, and we love nature

What would you recommend?

What places do you like the most in your country?

Thanks for your help

Hi cristina, there are plenty of nice diving spots here... 2-3 hours away from manila (capital city), there's batangas. very very nice divespots and beaches in Palawan and Bohol. my favorite beach is boracay.
in all the areas i've mentioned, there's plenty of places to stay: from the higher end to the budget range.
for bohol- check out bohol beach club, or pansukian island (also in bohol, there is a resort there), or ananyana beach resort.
for boracay there are a lot of choices...! :) i like seawind resort, waling waling resort, and fridays (but it is a little farther from the "party area" of the beach).

Hi cristina! I hope this reply wouldnt be too late.. Yes i agree with shine that boracay is indeed an option for you. Very beautiful. I believe the island is a 100km stretch and it is divided into 3 stations. Station one is the high end where most of the expensive hotels are located, station 2 is more of like the moderate type, there are expensive and beautiful hotels there as well, station three is the most peaceful amongst the three, now this is the place for you to choose if you want a peaceful vacation and just there to experience the pleasant beauty of nature.

If you like diving, go to Manila and take the ferry to Puerto Galera.
Great diving at a budget prices:

Moalboal, Bohol or Apo Island near Cebu is also great:
