Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Taal Volcano remains one of Philippines' smallest, yet most active volcanoes with 33 recorded eruptions so far. Formed by previous prehistoric eruptions caused by the meeting of two tectonic plates, the site represents an observatory for studying and predicting natural disasters. Inside the caldera, you can find a freshwater sulphuric lake surrounded by over 40 overlapping cones and craters. Explore the natural wonders and thermal areas that envelop the volcano, and don't forget your swimsuit if you wish to take a quick dip in the lake.

  • Nice spot to visit if you have time. We had a friend who drove us there, so the trip was easy. Leave early in the morning to avoid Manila horrendous traffic. 
  • It is a full day tour. First sailing but out to the island. It takes about 1/2 hour. Here you choose either to ride on some small horses or to go. Since we had small children with in the company, we chose horses for them and the rest of us went. You have to be in fairly good shape to go all the way up, but it will be rewarded. A fantastic experience to stand on the edge of an active volcano. One can see that it Fizzes and bubbles in several places down in the water. At the same time, there is an absolutely stunning views to many pages.
