As soon as I rode into this shade the temperature dropped several degrees. A good place to stop and rest, and despite what the negative reviewers say it is quite pretty... Having said that its not a destination, just a nice place to stop on...More

There’s a rich history about this place and you have to stop by and take a picture as it is breathtaking. It’s free and the road doesn’t have much vehicles so you can yake as much photos as you can.

It’s pretty, worth a quick look but there’s nothing outstanding to see here. If you fancy stretching your legs with some scenery then for 10 pesos you can’t go wrong.

It's pretty...not sure why it's a tourist stop. If there was a spot to safely park and wander the forest I am afraid we missed it.

I was pretty excited to visit this forest, when I first saw the pictures... and it was quite stunning. However it's mostly a picture spot and there are a lot of tourists taking pictures of just about every tree in the place... kind of ruins...More

There is no specific stop for this spot. The Drivers will just pull over and take pictures for you. I recommend you to breath as much as you can. The air can alleviate your anxiety.

If you are passing is a great sensation. We stoped and explored the forest off road and it worth it. A nice walk discovering new plants and animals and enjoying the silence.

You'd wonder why a stopover along the forest road. The mahoganies were planted to prevent the soil from erosion during the rainy months. The trees have now grown to a beautiful forest.

Beautiful mahogany forest. Just make a quick stop and take a selfie when no vehicles are passing. Better to stop at the end of the tourist line to avoid so many photobombers taking pictures of themselves.
