About Puerto Galera
Puerto Galera, also known as ‘port of galleons’, is a first class municipality in Oriental Mindoro Province. It is at the north-westernmost part of Oriental Mindoro, at the south-western end of the Isla Verde passage, and about 130 kilometers south of Manila. It is the humble abode of the very hospitable and congenial Gallerianz plus their bionically diverse ecosystem where the Tamaraws belong, which are dwarf buffalo endemic to the said Province and are now considered endangered. Cladded by their flabbergasting forest, lanky coconut and luscious banana trees, and unblemished white and brown sand beaches, no wonder it was recognized as Man and Biosphere Reserve by UNESCO in 1973. Indeed, it is unparalleled.
