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.

... off every two to three years and to say she dominates the skyline wouldn't be enough. It would be akin to claiming that the Grand Canyon is, well, 'OK, I guess'. She's gigantic! And beautiful, in a way that nothing else could be. If you look close enough you can see the constant stream of red hot glowing lava that trickles from the crater. There is always a cloud of white smoke seeping from the top and we were told later that it's when this smoke turns black that's you need to ...

One such day trip led us down to the riverside where we would seek passage on one of the numerous boats to the infamous Khao San Road. Many days have passed since I have ventured ...
... relaxing at the hotel before being collected by two tricycles and taken to the Ogod river. Here we boarded a typical Filipino boat - narrow with bamboo outriggers and an outboard motor - for a firefly cruise. The waxing moon was nearing full, and lit the river which was as flat as a millpond. After about twenty minutes we started seeing fireflies flitting from tree to tree, and, a few minutes later, we stopped by a line of mangrove ...
So after 26 hrs on two different buses and 2 very long days of travel I arrived in Donsol. Home of the Butading (Whale Shark); at least supposedly between the months of January and May. To my dismay I arrived at the Whale Shark Research centre to learn that there had only been two sightings in the last week. Had I travelled all of this way for nothing? At the resort I heard story after story from travellers, ...
... encounter, and perhaps just a bit winded. We had just taken off our fins when Omar said, "would you like to go again?". Are you kidding? We were ready to jump in again in a flash! The second time was just as wonderful as the first, but perhaps even better, as we had a bit more of a feel for what to expect, and how to better manage our time with this marvel of God's creation. It is truly an experience that defies description. Perhaps the biggest ...
