If you like riding motorcycles on curvy hillside roads with a view of the ocean, then you should definitely take a Puerto Galera to Calapan City Motorcycle Ride when visiting the island of Mindoro.
You will have to know, that as anywhere here in the Philippines there can be danger lurking around the corner if you’re not paying attention. You want to make sure you’re always in control of your bike (including speed) as you make your way to Calapan.
You will find that the free form type of traffic here doesn’t tend to follow a lot of the rules you might be used to back at home. You may also run into the occasional checkpoint where the police or military are checking for license, helmets, etc.
One thing though that I can guarantee is you will have fun on these curvy roads, awesome weather (majority of the time) and of course the wonderful views.

Places to See in Puerto Galera
Going from Puerto Galera to Calapan there are a few popular places to see such as:
Approximately 15 minutes from BADLADZ Beach Resort, here you will find Tamaraw Falls with waterfalls cascading down the mountain. You will also be able to enjoy mountain water pools and a picnic area for you to enjoy a nice lunch with your friends and/or family.
Tukuran Falls is approximately 45 hour from BADLADZ Beach Resort in Puerto Galera towards Calapan. Once you arrive at the trail head you will have the chance to ride caribou. It’s about a 30 min walk/ride to the falls from the trail head.
