Things to do
For a dose of culture, visit the Ruins in Talisay and see a splendid example of Italianate architecture. Photograph the exterior pillars and stroll through the landscaped gardens, then head inside to the fine-dining restaurant serving Mediterranean cuisine.
Get some fresh air on a journey to Igutan Cave, where you’ll find winding passageways and secret caverns. Take a dip in the pool beneath the falls, bring a headlamp for spelunking and check out the chapel on the hillside located in front of the cave.
History buffs should head to Balay ni Tana Dicang, situated along Rizal St. Enjoy the Spanish-Filipino domestic architecture before you head inside to tour the interior and see the zaguan, the carosa and the caida highlighted with classical motifs, mouldings and cornices.
Spend a day in the sun at Larawan beach, home to open areas for sunbathing and places to play frisbee or soccer. Go for a swim or stroll down to the pier to check out the statues commemorating MacArthur's World War II landing.
