While I was in Romblon, I got the chance to visit the Looc Marine Sanctuary. It is located in the town of Looc in the island of Tablas.
The Marine Sanctuary is 48 hectares wide. According one of the Looc Baywatch member who accompanied us, the sanctuary has been opened to the public since 1999.
Before heading out into the waters, we proceeded to the office of the Looc Baywatch Task Force for a short briefing and pay the entrance fees. Entrance to the Marine Sanctuary is PHP100. Snorkel rental is at PHP50.
Last December I was in Tangub City Misamis Occidental to judge the 20th Tangub City Christmas Symbols Festival. And one of the places I really wanted to visited during that time was the Hoyohoy Highland Park.
Paru Parong Bukid is a Filipino Term for Mountain butterfly. As the name implies Paru Parong Bukid is a Butterfly Garden slash nature park and more. It is a wellness facility too!
Mervin and I arrived at the DZ Romualdez airport at around 10 AM via AirPhil Express. Our close friend Ludette Ruiz of Leyte Gulf Travel and Tours picked us up at the airport. From there we then drove towards the town of Babatngon, Leyte where Paru Parong Bukid Wellness Center is located.
A few hours to go and we will bid goodbye to 2012. The year has been very exciting for me. Got so many blessings and more opportunities to travel and explore the beauty of the Philippines. I had ups and downs. But what is important is that we got to stand up once again.
Today we look back at some of the most memorable trips I have done in 2012. I actually started this series in Facebook, but will now compile everything here. So here it is…
