Last weekend, we went on a staycation escapade to Fridays Puerto Galera via a seaplane from AirTrav. It only took us about 35 – 40 mins from Manila to Puerto Galera (that’s 5x faster than traveling to Batangas Port from Manila and taking a boat from Batangas Port to Puerto Galera. It saved us so much time! Check out our flying experience via AirTrav from Manila to Fridays Puerto Galera.

Getting there and What to expect
Upon arriving at the island via the AirTrav seaplane, we immediately head on to the receptionist that was very accommodating. The General Manager also welcomed us and served us welcome drinks. However, our room was not yet ready so we explored a bit of the luxury resort.
Each staff who we got to come across with was welcoming and smiling towards every other guest — and that’s a great thing. You won’t feel like a stranger at all. They’ll greet you happily.
The CRU Restaurant, the only restaurant in the area, which was just behind the front desk also serves sumptuous meals at a reasonable price. Compliments to the chef for serving us great food while we were on Fridays Puerto Galera. The scenery at the restaurant will also be one of your favorites during your stay. peace, calm, quiet.
