Comments [None]The good: it was very cheap, the rack rate for hotel was 2000 Php but Expedia got room for me at ~ $22/ nightg; the diving was 1000 peso per tank while Seaquest was 1,400 peso/ tank

the bad: that dive shop (next to New Eve's) only goes to Pescatore island. There are currents, sometimes against your direction.
There are many places to eat; none are fancy.

My hotel had a swim. pool; the Marina lodge went for 300 peso / nite.
The diving was not fabulous; did see eel, harlequin shrimp, trumpet fishes, purple anthias, etc.

There are other things to do; like tours ( 1,500 to 4000 peso ( ~ 49 peso per USD.
