Corregidor Island

Corregidor Island is like a tadpole making his way to the West Philippines seas. It lies between the province of Cavite and Bataan Peninsula. Technically this small island belongs to the province of Cavite contrary to what most of the people knows that it belongs to Bataan. During the war the island was an important defense fortress of the Americans in the Philippines.   

This trip was unplanned. We wanted to treat Tita Cora, our hostess in Cebu for her stay here in Manila. Tita Cora is from Mandaue, Cebu. She accommodate us when we were in Cebu. Making us stay in a 3 star hotel in Mactan Island plus touring us in Lapu-Lapu shrine... So generous of her =)

Our Morning started in CCP Complex where the sole tour provider in Corregidor is located.
