To get to the volcano you must take a 20 minute boat ride on a banka. It was slightly overcast the day I went and the water was choppy. I was also the only guest in the boat. The wind kicked up and I got...More

We got a boat ride via Taal Lake to travel to the Taal volcano. Had fun during the boat ride with water splashing on us. Do get a change of clothes as one can tend to get drenched.

Where to begin... First of all, to start with the positive, the view from the rim is quite amazing and this place COULD by a unesco world heritage site. However, the path up to the rim has been destroyed by horses carrying lazy tourists, and...More

This town at the base of the volcano offers "horse" rides to top of the mountain to tourists. The "horses" are more like ponies - there are very few actual full size horses. They spend all day chained to trees waiting to give rides, unable...More

This is a huge lake, blue waters surrounded by green hills. The lake is so huge, it takes exact 25 mins to cross it by speed boat.

The place itself and its atmosphere are unique, and the landscapes unforgettable. The views of the lake, the boats and the volcano will make you enjoy a lot wheter you are a landscape lover or a photographer.

Please don’t take a horse up to the volcano, they are clearly maltreated and not fit to be trekking up the trails (the poor things are underfed, overworked, injured, clearly ill/sick and unhappy). It’s an easy hike- enjoy the exercise!

The lake can be placid and rough so one should always have a life jacket handy. You need to cross the lake inorder to reach the Taal 🌋. Best to do this in the morning.

You can charter a local to take you where you want to go, although it can be a little expensive. In The Philippines anything is possible, people are super hrlpful and friendly.
