Nice clean rooms, comfortable bed and nice staff. Food is pricey but there are other places to eat nearby. The beach is decent - soft white powder sand but some debris nearby and no waves.

... important in the pecking order (no pun intended). They are kept tied up, and in a lot of cases, in very secure areas - the gardens they are kept in are in many cases, larger areas than the home and property it sits on. The roosters have little lean-to buildings to keep them protected from the elements. The reason they are so revered, is because they get used in cock fights. (yuck).

... guys house that was blown away and destroyed during the last typhoon in the area...interesting...just felt a bit sorry for the owner really. We proceeded to drive around the coastal road taking in a few interesting places, including the smallest village on the island (which still had a church and a basketball court!) and a tree house in a mangrove sanctuary. The Philippines was once rife with mangroves, however shrimp farms have meant the destruction of many areas once covered ...
