After some good recommendations I've decided to skip Puterto Galera and spend my last week in Bohol instead. I'm planning to be there in Mid January, I have been looking at staying on Alona Beach as am keen to do alot of diving. But I am still to book anywhere which I probably should do soon, so would apreaciate any Info on Bohol, where best to stay and who best to dive with? etc

My plan for my 6 weeks in the Philippines
- 1 week Donsol / Manila
- 1 week in Coron
- 1 week in Boracay
- 2 weeks in Palawan
- 1 week in Bohol

Now I understand ENVY!
You will find six weeks is not enough time!
Bohol; Don't forget the Chocolate Hills, or a nature trek for Tarsiers,(the worlds smallest primate). :smiley20:
try :. Philippine Islands Divers - Bohol Divers. Alona Beach, Panglao Bohol and Malapascua, Cebu. Philippines (http://www.phildivers.com) or Welcome to Bohol, Philippines (http://www.bohol.ph) or Diving in the Philippines: Bohol, Cebu, Negros, Coron Bay, Apo and Tubbataha Reef (Zubi) (http://www.starfish.ch/dive/Philippines.html)
good info.

Thanks H2odragon, yeah im really looking forward to this trip, due to leave in 3 weeks now, so keen to get things sorted real soon. I've heard the chocolate hills are amazing but also heard that they only look good during certain months when they are brown and chocolate like, apparently they won't be brown when im there the January. Is that correct??

what a lot of people do is handle the accomodations directly with the place you want to stay and just walk into a dive shop and ask their daily rate. You can get deals as low as $17/dive. There are many dive shops to choose from on Alona.

As for the Chocolate Hills, when I went in March they were brown, I'm not sure about January. Although I wouldn't worry too much about their colour - more so if it's going to be a clear beautiful day or a foggy, rainy day. Whether green or brown, it's still a surreal scene to look at.
