ABOUT PINOYADVENTURISTA.COM

Pinoy + Adventures + Turista = PINOY ADVENTURISTA

Pinoy Adventurista is a travel blog that aims to chronicle an adventure junkie's backpacking and adventure trips, his mountaineering and foodie adventures and to provide an online source of travel guides and climbing tips and more!

It started in 2005 with a simple personal blog on friendster and Multiply as a journal of sorts. Until 2009, when it slowly evolved into a travel blog on different tourist and "off the beaten track" destinations in the Philippines.

It seeks to encourage more people to explore and travel the Philippines and (re)discover how beautiful our beloved country is. It’s all about the adventures, the startling panoramas, the people met, the food tasted, the ride taken and the journey to reach a destination.

Travelling is about sharing with others, either stories, tips or good times. Pinoy Adventurista aims to inspire, persuade and encourage others to live their dreams, to travel and find their own adventure of a lifetime!

It was just another blog when it started. However, it dared to be different from the rest.

    1. It really depends on what your interests are. I would recommed visiting Samal Islands, museums, and the neighboring cities like Mati, General Santos City etc.. You can get more help if you go to Davao's website and it will connect you to more recommended destinations according to your taste and interets.

  4. Pwede ba ba akong sumabit sa isa sa mga trip pag umuwi jan sa Pinas. Matagal na ako dito sa ibayong dagat at pangarap ko talagang libutin at makita ang ganda ng Pilipinas. Wala lang pagkakataon at means nong bata pa si ako. Ngayon tapos na ako sa pakikipagsapalaran dito sa ibang bansa takot naman akong maglibot ng mag-isa dahil sa mga balitang nababasa ko at naririnig na di kaaya-aya. Nitong hling ko jan ay napasyalan ko ang El Nido at puertoPrincesa sa Palawan. Boracay sa Aklan. Villa Escudero sa Quezon. Subic Bay sa Olongapo. Baguio City sa Mountain Province. At siyempre ang Lubang Island sa Occidental Mindoro ang isla kong sinilangan. Kaya naman marami pa akong dapat marating habang malakas pa ang tuhod ko. Kay ganda ng Pilipinas walang tatalo sa mundo sa kabila ng pagpapabaya at paglapastangan sa kalikasan.

  31. Hi Sir Mervin,
    I started being a blogger last 2009 but I had it just like a personal album only. It was only in July 2013 that I took time to at least improve my travel blog. I have been reading your blog and hope we can exchange links. Hope you can give me some tips to improve my travel blog. It has less viewers and I find it is isolated in the world of of travel blogging. Thanks.

  42. Hi Mervz! I'd like to to be in touch. I'm thinking of joining you, if you allow that idea, in one of your trips in the future. I've never been to a lot of places in the Philippines.
