If you passing through Calapan City in Mindoro, Philippines, and need a place to stay, check out the Filipiniana Hotel. We spent one night there back in April 2010. The price was very reasonable. There is a open air restaurant near the pool. The morning that we departed for Puerto Galera we had a nice breakfast, and it was my first experience having locally grown coffee from the province of Batangas. The coffee was outstanding. I added a link for the hotel on my site. The hotel is a few kilometers from the Calapan City Roll On-Roll Off Port.

The first photo with the small hill near the Bataan Olongapo Rd in Zambales. The second photo near the SBMA Morong Rd on the way south. The third photo near the Morong, Bataan area. The provincial areas away from the cities will become very scenic, especially after the rainy season. You never know what scene will present itself, unless you take the adventure. Rent a van for the day or two, or maybe a week, and see the country.
