Whenever I think of summer, all I can think of are the beach, white sands, pineapples, coconut juice, and palm trees in the tropics. I surely love the beach.
The first time my husband visited me back in 2007, we went to a beach resort in Oriental Mindoro, Philippines. The resort is called Puerto Galera (literally means “Port of Galleons”). That was my very first time to have a vacation to other provinces. I fell in love with the place. No wonder the resort is one of the most visited attraction in the Philippines. Besides enjoying a glass of pineapple juice by the beach, diving, beach hopping, snorkeling, and sightseeing are the best activities here. There are beautiful dive sites in Puerto Galera. Diving lessons and diving gears are available.
When beach hopping, the boats were like the taxi on the water. And when snorkeling, the boat will wait. That was really cool. We had our snorkeling gears like goggles and life jackets.
I cannot wait to go back to Puerto Galera again. Hopefully, one of our next vacations will be in Oriental Mindoro. It would be nice to take my daughter there and show her how beautiful the Philippines is.
I cannot wait for our next vacation to the Philippines again. Hubby said it will be any time soon. Weee! I hope we will get the chance to go to my favorite beach resort, Coco Beach Island Resort in Oriental Mindoro. I fell in love with the resort the first time I set foot on the island. And it was also the first time meeting the love of my life five years ago. That was our wonderful summer getaway.
Coco Beach Island Resort is a serene place. We stayed in a Heritage room because that is the only type of room with air conditioner. Standard and Deluxe rooms are cheaper. Suite and Hilltop rooms have the same rates like the Heritage’s. It was kind of pricey before because they charged the room rate per person. But as per the resort’s May 2012-April 2013 Published Rates, they are charging per room per night inclusive of accommodation, breakfast, service charge and tax. I think their new rates are reasonable and I like it! I feel like making a reservation now. 🙂
Hubby and I enjoyed hanging out, beach hopping, snorkeling, and shopping and of course, the romantic times were precious. Coco Beach Resort also offers fun dives and unlimited diving. i highly recommend this beach resort as vacation destination in the Philippines.
