Philippines with kids

Posted by NR on 12/6/2017 at 04:56

Hi Everyone,

We are a family of 2 adults and two 4.5 yrs old kids planning to visit Philipines in mid-November for 10-11 days.With this trip, we are looking forward to:

adventure,wild nature, forest etc

breathtaking sightseeing
watersports; snorkeling, diving, jumping in the river from hills etc.
kids fun

With a bit of my research, I came to know about following locations:

Boracay: Arial Point
Cebu: Hikong falls
Bohol: Chocolate Hills, forest snorkeling
Puerto Princea: Underground river
Coron: Kayangan Lake
Elnido: small lagon
Bicol: mayon volcano
Ifugo: Banaue Rice terrace
Siquijor: Limestone Cave, Cambuhagay falls

I might not want to do repetitive stuff like beach over beach over yet love to explore places different in their own way. Rest you guys are the experts.

Your suggestions/advice will be highly appreciated.

With two smallish children you should think "what else" in and around the area you chose as well as how accessible are they

Well you can not do them all! I have not myself been to many of the places (not even heard of Hikong falls on Cebu) but I would suggest you restrict yourselves to perhaps a couple of these.

mayon volcano may(is) not be suitable for the little ones

there is no doubt you can have a great time and I have responded here in a very generalised way because I think whatever you chose the two points at the top are key.

have a great trip
