Tambaron Island in Bulalacao, Mindoro Oriental

Brother and sister, AJ and Maya Fajardo, are friends we have been traveling with since 2008; and the Fajardo family owns Tambaron Green Beach Resort in Tambaron Island. Tambaron Green Beach Resort is located in one of the coves of Tambaron Island in the southernmost tip of Oriental Mindoro. It is surrounded by a forest with 40 different tree species that make it good for trekking and you may also directly interact with the native Mangyans. Green Sea turtles sometimes visit the island to lay eggs, schools of Skipjack Tuna abound during the migratory season of December to April, and wild ducks during the rainy season. The resort offers a serene, untouched environment with clear waters for snorkeling and a jump off point for island hopping. It has family rooms, dormitory quarters and beachfront cottages. (see links for sources)

What to expect:

-SCUBA diving and snorkeling spots
-Kayaking and island hopping
-Mountain trails and enchanted fauna
-Mangyan ethnic groups
-Mini cattle ranch
-Beach volleyball and badminton courts

Now that we know what to expect out of the island and the resort itself, here is what you can expect from this trip, with the itinerary as prepared by Travel Factor.
