Jumped on a Tricycle from the Port. Well worth the visit. Chance to buy refreshments too. Watch the road though as it gets busy.

Scenic stopover for souvenir photos. Beverage stores across the street. Watch out for fast moving vehicles. Named for the tamaraw (smaller cousin of the carabao, the national animal of the Philippines) which is found only in Mindoro island.

Definitely worth a visit. Very nice waterfalls. Local government should improve the place to make it easier to walk around the falls and have a better look. Paths are wet and not always safe for any kind of shoes. There are local vendors selling foods...More

Great timing when we visit it cause there's plenty of water in the waterfalls. There's a basin down the road where you can swim(not sure how much the entrance fee since we didn't swim in there).

Be sure to bring swimsuites as there are designated areas you can relax and take a dip, refreshing cold water.

We had a very nice motorbike ride to this waterfall, the falls are beautiful. The restaurant was very good but the tables smelled bad, probably washed with a stagnant smelly cloth. The steps down to the second falls were built for giants, and the handrails...More

Beautiful waterfalls with a swimming area on the other side of the bridge. Very cool place to visit and swim on a hot afternoon day. There is a restaurant there as well to catch a meal or snack

I've been to Galera twice, but this is the first time we actually went here. I honestly thought it was small based on the pictures I have seen. I did not think there was a swimming area, coz usual photos of it were from the...More
