Discover the Unique and Beautiful Galapagos Islands

Discover the Unique and Beautiful Galapagos Islands
Anyone looking to vacation in an island paradise that offers a little of everything is sure to find the Galapago Islands a destination worth investigating. Not only do the islands offer tropical weather, beautiful beaches and quality hotels, but interesting and unique wildlife species are native to the islands. One of the most enjoyable ways to take in all the sights the islands have to offer is by booking one of the multiple Galapagos tours that are available. A guided tour aboard a yacht or small ship is the most efficient and enjoyable way to view all the islands while learning about their unique characteristics and native wildlife.

A short description of a typical tour includes Black Turtle Cove, a lagoon off the north coastline of Santa Cruz Island. Visiting tourists will enter the cove in a small boat to view Green Sea Turtles, schools of Golden Rays and White-tipped Sharks in the clear, tropical water. Yellow Warblers, Lava Herons and various other bird species that are unique to the islands can also be seen at close range. Professional guides provide interesting facts about each species as the tour progresses around the lagoon.

After a few hours of enjoying the incomparable beauty of the cove, visitors return to the anchored boat and enjoy a delicious home cooked meal and cool drinks. The boat remains anchored until early morning when it sets sail for Sullivan Bay and another day of enjoying new sights and experiences.

Recent Davao Trip

I was in Davao a few days ago to visit our branch at the same time check on other business. With this trip, Alexa was with me as she kept on insisting of coming along as she was never been to Davao while her 2 brothers were there for a month last year.

It would have been nicer to stay longer for the Kadayawan Festival but Alexa has to attend school so 3 days off is enough for her. Besides, I have other business in Manila to take care to. While in Davao, my girl had the opportunity to use the olympus ls-100 which she liked so much.

Where to Stay in Cebu City: Tune Hotels

One of the fastest growing hotel chains in the Philippines is Tune Hotels. They have been present around other Asian countries such as Malaysia, Thailand and Indonesia. In the Philippines, there are Tune Hotels in our busiest metros – Manila, Clark and the newly opened one in Cebu City. One of the most prominent features that Tune Hotel Cebu boosts of is their convenient location. It is smack right in front of the Ayala Cebu Center and is easily accessible by different transportation means such as jeepneys and taxis. It is a few minutes to some of Cebu’s tourist sites such as Magellan’s Cross, Fort San Pedro and Sto Nino Basilica.

Tune Hotels in Cebu City is a preferred accommodation option by both business and leisure travelers. Even backpackers can recommend Tunes to those who wish to have that 5-star accommodation comfort less the expensive costs and costly service extras.

The only minus point for me is that they don’t have a restaurant and don’t offer breakfast. If you are up for a quick bite, you can just buy them at 7Eleven which is located in the ground floor or visit Ayala Center – anyway its infront of the hotel.

 I booked my first night in Cebu at Tune Hotel using website. Got the room for only Php 655.00 (USD 14.98) only. I purposely didn’t booked for 3 nights because I wanted to check the hotel first. Unfortunately, on the day of my arrival, the rate in Agoda is already at Php 1,700 / night.

Tune Hotel in Cebu City is highly recommended for those who want the comfort and convenience of a 5-Star hotel but wants something that is just right for the budget.
