One of the Philippines oldest marine sanctuaries, Puerto Galera is breathtakingly beautiful both above and below its calm, clear waters, Below, its Kaleidoscope of colourful corals and marine life, and above, a spectacular vista set against cloud-shrouded mountains, a haven for divers, yachtsmen, fisherman and nature lovers alike.
Puerto is a Resort Town located in the north-eastern shoreline of Oriental
Mindoro. lt is the eastern half of the island of Mindoro, an island
which is the third largest in the Philippine archipelago. The island
is south-west of Metro Manila. Puerto Galera itself is about seventy
(70) statute miles away from Metro Manila, and can either be reached
by seacraft straight from Manila, or by land transportation from Manila
to Batangas City (100 kms), and by ferryboat onwards to Puerto Galera.
The land travel takes between one and a half to two hours ride depending
on the traffic situation, while the connecting boat ride takes either
forty minutes or one and a half hours depending on the ferryboat taken.
Like all great travellers, I have seen more than I remember, and remember more than I have seen. Benjamin Disraeli
I have wandered all my life, and I have also traveled; the difference between the two being this, that we wander for distraction, but we travel for fulfillment. Hilaire Belloc
A traditional Filipino breakfast might include pandesal (small bread rolls), kesong puti (white cheese), champorado (chocolate rice porridge), sinangag (garlic fried rice), and meat—such as tapa, longganisa, tocino, karne norte (corned beef), or fish such as daing na bangus (salted and dried milkfish)—or itlog na pula (salted duck eggs). Coffee is also commonly served particularly kapeng barako, a variety of coffee produced in the mountains of Batangas noted for having a strong flavor.

As a tropical oriental country it should come as no surprise there are many treats made from rice and coconuts. One often seen dessert is bibingka, a hot rice cake optionally topped with a pat of butter, slices of kesong puti (white cheese), itlog na maalat (salted duck eggs), and sometimes grated coconut. There are also glutinous rice sweets called biko made with sugar, butter, and coconut milk.
