Travel Tips from people who've been to Mindanao Islands
There is a good amount to do here.Lots of historic places to visit and some night life.The big hotels are mostly private entrance to ward off the poverty which is abundant around the area.Some hotels have man-made beaches with room access to these.Fresh and salt water pools with pool bars.There is a lot of prostitution here and the local towns are not to be visited without a good guide. GET A GUIDE!!! Oh," If it looks good to eat ask what kind of meat". Don't knock dog 'till you try it.Watch you wallet and your back.ATM's are guarded by police with guns.Don't give money to locals who beg.They will follow you.I saw 5 year olds in traffic looking for pennies and diving into water to get a penny I saw Brits.who thought it would be a good game to see how far the kids would go or what they would do for money.Sad.

eden park - nestled at the foot of Mt. Apo, eden park is a quiet getaway from the hustle and bustle of central davao. the cool weather is just right and your young ones would most likely enjoy the wildlife (i did!) they have peacocks near the hotel area, and a separate deer farm. poor things though, would have wanted them to be in the wild. :) the food is good, specially the salad -- quite fresh when we were there. their restaurant has a covered portion which allows you to dine al fresco, minus the bugs and the rain.

Camiguin Action Geckos dive&adventure resort is a great place. It's listed as 'our pick' in the Lonely Planet and I think that made the prices rise and the place is usually fully booked... I stayed elsewhere myself...
But it's a great place to spend te evenings, they have hammocks and a lovely restaurant, there's wifi and they offer all kinds of activities on the island, like diving. They have really good service. I did a PADI review dive because my last dive had been 3 years ago, but couldn't equalize so I had to abort my dive and they only charged me for the equipment.
