Located on the Pacific Ring of Fire, Taal Volcano remains one of Philippines' smallest, yet most active volcanoes with 33 recorded eruptions so far. Formed by previous prehistoric eruptions caused by the meeting of two tectonic plates, the site represents an observatory for studying and predicting natural disasters. Inside the caldera, you can find a freshwater sulphuric lake surrounded by over 40 overlapping cones and craters. Explore the natural wonders and thermal areas that envelop the volcano, and don't forget your swimsuit if you wish to take a quick dip in the lake.

Where to stay in Tagaytay

The main accommodations of Tagaytay sit along the ridge that forms the spine of the town. The road that snakes its way along here contains many of the restaurants, services, and urban attractions of Tagaytay, so the ridge represents the town center, unfurled. You'll find hotels of great variety along the ridge, as well as some simple guesthouses and hostels. Set back from here, some larger resorts make use of the increase in space by offering wellness-retreat-style accommodation, fine-dining restaurants, and rental apartments.
