Hi, to be honest I am overwhelmed by choice. My husband and I are travelling to the Philippines in April (before Holy Week). We are spending 4 nights on Boracay and then have ten more nights to plan. We would love to get our PADI certificates and I understand Malapuscua and Bascilag are the best places to do this. We would also like to visit Bohol and see the chocolate hills and tarsiers.
Would you suggest we stay at Cebu? Do a day trip to Bohol? Spend time on Bohol? And then head to either of the islands to do our dive certificates? Is there much to see and do on Cebu or is it more of a transit place?
We love to snorkel as well and could spend a few days snorkelling before we dive. Should we visit Pangao or mactan Islands?
Looking fwd to receiving your advice.
