Highly recommended! The place is very nice. You can get a view of different cultures of the Philippines in just one stop! Their food is awesome. Comfortable house and friendly people. They will treat you as if you are part of the family.

If you do not dive? Where can you swimming? Is there a pool or beach you can go to nearby?
There is access to the ocean nearby where you can swim - but do not expect a sandy shore (the shore is concrete because it is also where a few small bancas dock and there is a breakwater.) The ocean floor is peppered with huge corally rocks (i use aqua shoes) but that makes it perfect for snorkeling because there are beautiful coral reefs and fishes starting 2 or 3 meters from the shore and there is a floating hut maybe 8 meters from shore. You can rent life vests and snorkeling gear.
