TOP 10 THINGS TO DO IN PUERTO GALERA

Apart from relaxing on the beach and basking in the sun in front of one of the Puerto Galera resorts, there are lots of activities and adventures in store for you in Puerto Galera.

Within a short distance from Puerto Galera, you can visit many interesting places such as Tamaraw Falls, the Mangyan Villages (native Mindoro inhabitants),  and Aklag River. Maybe you can spend the afternoon playing golf at the Ponderosa Golf Club 1,700 feet above sea level. You could also go jungle trekking, climb Mt. Malisimbo, sail to other nearby Islands, or rent a motorbike and explore the area on your own. It's really an adventure-seeker's paradise!

Mermaid Resort, with our registered tour guide staff, can help you arrange any kind of tour to satisfy your need for adventure and new experiences.

1. Trek to Tamaraw Falls

All golf equipment can be rented and the green fee more than reasonable.

4. Have a Paint Ball Challenge in the Jungle

5. Experience the Calapan Cockfights

The way to Calapan is a rather rough drive, but on the way you can enjoy breathtaking views and beautiful calamansi plantations. In Calapan, you can buy items at bargain prices, but if you’re not into shopping, we’ll take you straight to the big event of the day -- the cockfights.

6. Marvel at the Culture of the Mangyans

mangyan The Mangyans are the original inhabitants of Mindoro. They are very nomadic, and they try to avoid outside influences as much as possible. As the years went by, they gradually moved away from other settlers; thus, whereas they used to live by the sea, now they have settled in mountainous areas. You need a guide to visit their village so that you will be given a warm welcome. The Mangyans are very shy, so make sure you have been given permission to take photos before firing away.

7. Road Trip on a Motorcycle
