We like lots of places in the Philippines and here are some places you should visit:
Paseo del Mar (It’s across the street!)
These people take care of the divers who come out to Jagna to explore it’s intriguing double reef and the giant fifteen foot hunk of black coral. Jesse runs the place and takes care of the divers and gives good advice to travelers in the Philippines. Paseo also has several lodging options, including private rooms and a backpacker’s dorm.
