Taal Volcano, Manila Reviews
Favorite experience in the Philippines! After the long bus ride(4 hours in traffic) to Taygaytay from Makati, we got a 25 minute trike ride for 200 pesos to drive us down the windy twisty road to the lake. He took us to the boat place and said he would wait to take us up again for 300 more(didn’t need to pay till back at top). At the boat place they sat us sown and laid out the costs, around 2750 pesos without guide and horse. Guide and horse ride on the island were optional and you can choose to add them separately when you get there, we chose to get a guide for 500 pesos and it was worth it as he can act as photographer as well. The traditional boat with motor took about half an hour to get us to the island. There we got the guide, Michael, who I highly recommend, he says he does one trip a week on the weekend. The views on the volcano are great and you could even go down to the “hot spring” in the crater and swim as it isn’t too hot and only 3% sulfur. The people on the island will try to sell you photos of you that they took for 350 with frame or 100 without each, we paid 300 for one with a frame to support the community there. You may prefer to buy the photos without the frames, feel free to bargain.
just tried trekking taal volcano and it's nice specially for beginners.
Great view point from above, hike up is a bit hard, there is an option to ride a mile as well.
It's a nice place to visit. An easy 40 minutes walk. No need for horse or guide, which is pushed upon you when you set foot on the island
Beautiful trip with boat and then horse ride or on foot up to the volcano top with view to the inner crater lake (100°C).
