WELCOME TO MY SITE AND HAVE A GOOD DAY

If this is your first time in this site, welcome. It has been my dream that my province, Marinduque, Philippines becomes a world tourist destination not only during Easter Week but also whole year round. You can help me achieve my dream by telling your friends about this site. The photo above is your own private beach at The Chateau Du Mer Beach Resort. The sand is not as white as Boracay, but it is only a few steps from your front yard and away from the mayhem and crowds of Boracay. Please do not forget to read the latest national, international, and technology news in this site . I have posted some of my favorite Filipino and American dishes and recipes on this site also. Some of the photos and videos on this site, I do not own. However, I have no intention on infringement of your copyrights. Cheers!

Things To Do in Marinduque



There are numerous things to do in Marinduque during your vacation. But the following ten items are my recommendations:
1.Beach combing, snorkeling, bathing , scuba diving and sunset watching
This photo was taken at the balcony of the Beach House. Note that low tide is starting and the corals are starting to stick out also.


2.Caves Exploration-Spelunking. There are two caves worthy of exploration-Bathala in Santa Cruz and Tarug in Mogpog. The Bathala Cave consist of eight other caves. One of the caves has a resident python. Photo by Flickr.com

Thanks David for taking time to post comment... My son is in Grade 4 and he's in Ateneo de Davao Grade School. Aren't you a member of entrecard yet? It's free and I'll be your regular dropper heheheheh! I pray I have more extras by the end of the year, we will consider Marinduque, your resort...

Vernz, What's an entrecard and how do you sign in? Ateneo De Davao is an excellent school from what I heard. My sister-in-law who is a nun of the order of the Cenacle, used to be the head of Catholic Education in that school. She is retired now, but still lives there in Davao. The Cenacle has House in Davao. They give retreats. Have you heard of the order?

Great site! I am a teacher in Thailand, and here we can easily find beachside bungalows for $7-12 USD. I will be visiting Marinduque with my sister soon; can you recommend any cheap accommodation? Also, is there any place to rent motorbikes? We would like to stay for a week and explore the island (especially the caves and hot springs!). Thanks for any help :-)
