We left Zambales on December 28 and stayed one night in Manila. We took the boat from Batangas to Romblon the following day. What a ride! Our guests decided to take the non-aircon area and so we all decided to stick together. Bad idea with 3 kids!
The boat does not have security on the sides. A child could easily fall off aboard or an adult for that matter. It was really warm and very uncomfortable.And yes, I saw some baby cockroaches. I hardly had any rest the whole trip.
Boats from Batangas to Romblon – Daily /Manila to Romblon – Once a week (Mondays, I think)
ANYWAY, I FORGOT ALL THE DISCOMFORT I HAD IN THIS 12 HOUR TRIP WHEN WE GOT THERE. ROMBLON, THE MARBLE ISLAND OF THE PHILIPPINES, IS BEAUTIFUL, CLEAN AND FRIENDLY.
