Taal Volcano...an active volcano on the island of Luzon in Philippines. It is situated in the middle of the Batangas City area, with the front crater facing Talisay, Batangas, but is visible throughout the towns of Lipa, Balete and San Nicolas, Batangas, and is situated down below the city of Tagaytay.

It is an hour and a half travel from the city of Manila to Tagaytay, and a further 30 minutes drive away down to Taal Lake, at Balete, Batangas. A small, quiet community of locals where you can find coconut farms, private rest houses and resorts.

Enjoy a day of boat ride to the Taal Volcano islands and islets in the middle of the Taal Lake, trek on foot or ride horses on ur way up to the Taal Crater...get back to shore and maybe do some fishing urself or learn how to shoot fishes, the local way. You may do your own barbecuing and picnic, play cards or boardgames while enjoying the fresh breeze of air and trees around. Discover the locals and the simple life they have. Walk out some blocks and try the local delicacies they make like "suman" sweet rice cooked in coconut milk and wrapped in banana leaves, fresh coconut fruit and juice picked straight up from the coconut trees...etc.

Experience a laid-back day of simplicity, tranquility, privacy...awesome :-)

Tips of where to Stay > Ideally good for family out-of-towns, couples on romantic peaceful get-away, friends wanting a private place for fun like swimming on a private pool, camping, picnic, barbecuing, hiking, boat riding to Taal Volcano island, experience the fresh breeze of the morning sunrise and the famous "kapeng barako" fresh local batangas brewed coffee, or the lovely view of sunset over Taal enjoying the privacy of ur own under the trees and the stars. You can enjoy this simple, no fuss, no frill and inexpensive stay at the Llanes Private Resthouse in Balete, Batangas.

Enjoy a simple break away from the city, welcome to Taal!

      Nice article and pictures! Did I read right about the man "shooting" fish? How does he collect them after shooting them? That is so very illegal in the United States. Although, my idea of fishing is a stick of dynamite, hehehe.
