Puerto Galera: Angel's Travel Tours Review

I have always loved the beach. It's just that growing up in Palawan, I've been really partial about beaches because I know I've seen the best. And if I were to go spend vacation in one aside from Palawan beaches, it has to be on a good deal.

This is where researching became a good weapon before venturing into Puerto Galera for the first time. I looked for other alternatives but after calculating, Angel's Travel Tours was by far the best price. And because of the good feedback I read online, I booked everyone's travel itinerary with them. It was summer so a deal like this cannot be ignored.

Tickets for MB Golden Hawk
You get to wear a sticker so the ferry crew and the staff from the resort would recognize you as their guest.
We waited for 40 minutes to board in Gate 2B because we missed the earlier ferry trip.
Their promo package included the back and forth ferry ride, environmental fees, terminal fee, shuttle service, and room accommodation. All we had to do was be at the Batangas Pier to meet and pay the travel agent, in our case, Mhae.

The rung behind us is where we hang our wet clothes
We stayed at Delgado's Resort. The building seems newly built. The room we got was good for the 5 of us. Sorry for not having photos without people in it. I always take pictures of the amenities of the resorts I go to. I guess I just forgot to do so this time. You can click here to see the amenities as posted on their Facebook Fan Page.

As for what you're probably here for (to check the prices), here's the quotation we got for the package I mentioned above. 
For 3D2N 2pax: PHP1780 per head
For 2D1N 3pax: PHP1030 per head 
Good deal, wasn't it? Considering that the ferry ride is already PHP450 per head.  Kindly bear in mind that this is a promo summer package as of April 2011 so prices may have changed as this was during peak season.

As for the activities, we only got to try island hopping and snorkeling because we we on full-on rest mode. Schedules are the last thing we wanted. They are to be paid separately. I forgot how much we paid but we opted to get the activity package from the resort itself than from the peddlers outside. We got to bring free green mangoes!
I can't swim so imagine how scared I was even with the life jacket!
Going through a cave to reach what's on the next photo
Cave pool. Really cool, except this is where my beloved slippers broke their straps.
Outside the cave, we took vanity photos. The photos turned out nice except I was the one taking them so in my photos, I almost ran out of light.



Verdict
And to close this long post, I'd say I will come back again to Puerto Galera and try those other activities we missed the first time and it will be Angel's Travel Tours that I will be first checking for promos and packages.
