TravelPod Member ReviewsAguluz Homestay Donsol
We stayed at Aguluz for a night on the 25th of Feb. Our host, Marilyn was the best host we could have asked for. She personally took care of all our bookings and made our stay at her home quite memorable. Marilyn went out of her way to feed me vegetarian food as I was the only vegetarian of all the people staying over that night. All the staff that work for her are very warm and welcoming and I absolutely fell in love with her cute grandson. We would love to go back and stay at Aguluz whenever we visit Donsol again.

Unfortunately, all of the post-dive adventure had chilled the girls to the bone, so they sat out the second dive. Scot went in, and really enjoyed this dive, as well. In fact, it was even a bit better than our first ...
... know if they can help you and they have beautiful smiles as you pass. The local transport is fab, the jeeps and tricycles in particular are such fun and unique and I enjoyed my tricycle trip down to the hostel from the bus drop.
As it turns out there are another two people staying in the dorm who are also heading out to see the whale sharks tomorrow, plus another couple arrived in the evening which means we have five and agree to meet up in the ...
... famous for Manta Rays. But that also was ruined by the weather! He did get to dive three different sites that had spectacular coral & macro marine life - he saw another 3 Prawn Mantis Shrimp (YouTube them if you haven't already), sea horses & dozens of Nudibranches. He even had the pleasure of nearly soiling himself when three massive bangs went off underwater, which turned out to be dynamite fishing nearby...3 miles ...
... the place. I was in the zone and forced my way to the area above the sharks head, there was no way anyone was getting in my way and I didnt care who I kicked in the process. But then no one else cared either, must look ridiculous from the surface. I kept diving down so that I was swimming alongside it with the cleaner fish. It was awesome. Then it dived down deeper and was gone. As I made my way back to our boat I realised just how many people were here, probably ...
