In university in Canada I competed for three years in gymnastics. Before I started this project I traveled around the world for ten years and stayed in shape mostly by jogging barefoot on the beach and by situps, pushups, and pressing my hands together (and pulling apart) in different ways. I can teach you some basic gymnastics moves, great for working out. Very ergonomic, and much better than free weights, which are much better than a universal gym. Below you will see the high parallel bars, with a mirror in the background for motivation (or for working out when pressing against yourself) and a small bench for pushups and stomach crunches.
You can see the bamboo “rings”, excellent for pullups and other exercises, and to the left of the high parallel bars you can see the low parallel bars, which are good for handstands, an excellent workout for your forearms and other parts of the body.
One of the high parallel bar workouts, a simple swing. Much more difficult than it seems. Once you get a hang of that you can upgrade to the same exercise on the rings, which is much more difficult. Free weights are on the shopping list. For cardiovascular, you can join me for a jog/swim around the island.
This is a must to do!!Super ultimate tour is the best with Kayangan and barracuda lake, twin lagoons (my favorite), coral garden (blue fabulous coral) were the best. It’s really worth it to pay for private tour (3500 to 4000 PHP). You will also have to pay for entrance fees (150 to 200PHP by location) and eventually shopping at the market - must do (count 300 for 2 for fish, pork, fruits and vegetables, water).
I was looking for a personalized excursion to the beautiful Gulf of Bacuit.Seeing the comments, I contacted Mel.Very responsive, very efficient and perfect organization.The flight attendants were very friendly and very helpful.And I'm not even talking about the meal on board...a marvel.In all fairness, this excursion will remain an excellent memory and I cannot recommend Mel and his team highly enough.A big thank-you.
This tour went well above all our expectations! I couldn't recommend this enough! The boat crew, captain and tour guide were nothing but amazing, everyone was so kind, helpful and friendly. The crew knew the best spots to visit that weren't overcrowded with tourists, 3 times we were lucky enough to have whole islands to ourselves! It was my partner's birthday while away and everything went above and beyond, bonfire, cake, birthday card, singing and celebrating with us.If you love camping this is definitely a tout you should do, it has been the highlight of our trip!!
We booked a 4 days/3 nights private boat trip from Coron to Sibaltan. The organization went very well from the beginning, the owner answered to all my questions, and we were able to choose which islands to visit and where to sleep. The first night we slept in a bungalow in Banana Island, the second we camped in Araw beach and the last we slept in a seafront bungalow builded on a tree in Pical on Iloc Island.The islands in that area are the most beautiful islands I have ever seen, with clear water, lots of coral reef and fishes to see, white sand and almost deserted. The crew was very friendly and polite and they organize every single meal and for camping they give you a tent which was just perfect! This was our highlight in our 2 weeks in the Philippines and I wish I had booked a longer trip. A private trip gives you the freedom to decide where and when to go.
