Hostel
“The- place-to-be! If you wanna be seen or be mean (just thought of a word to rhyme hahaha well it goes with those who don't want crowded places!) Flotsam and Jetsam is the place for you! With their claim to good vibes and fun fun fun in their magical flotsam universe, you'll definitely have the best time of your life singing and dancing to the tune of throwback hits together with a very energetic, loving and singing on top of their lungs crowd.  TIP: BE THERE EARLY. GETS SUPER CROWDED ESP. ON SURFING BREAKS AND HOLIDAYS. (Capslock para intense)  ”

“How about drinking your fave beer or cold cocktail under the trees, in front of the beach? With wind softly brushing your face as you smile and make pacute on your crush or date in front of you? If you want a quiet, intimate, not so crowded place where you can hang with your best buds or your love, I highly recommend Choka. MUST TRY: Cheese sticks with basil chiffonade.  ”

“I love living in La Union along side the seashore. Protecting the ecosystem is very important to me. If you are lucky during your visit you may see some of our resident turtles. For more information on coastal management you may be interested to contact CURMA. CURMA or Coastal Underwater Resource Management Actions is a marine turtle conservation program that protects an endangered keystone species from poachers and other predators. Volunteers patrol the coastline and secure turtle nests from dangers together with other activities to help preserve marine life and the environment as a whole. ”
