Think “Permanent Residency, Long-Term Vacation” with us at the Resorts, stretch your ever-shrinking USDollar;
In simple terms: Currency Exchange- $1.00 = P51.00+ change!
Think of what your USDollars can buy in that kind of economic exchange!
For myself, I am of course loving this US Economy!
A choice of 2 locations- we have two properties, all along the beach but topographically varied. The expanse will guarantee your privacy needs, yet not feel or be alone unless you want to. Our differing landscapes will give our Guests variety in experience and activities. The Palms Club Restaurant and Bar will serve American as well as Italian and Filipino fares. Mundane tasks like laundry, let us worry about that.
Future plans to round out a self-sustaining environment include a grocery/ clothing store, a kids’ playground/ reading room and small medical clinic. The Clinic is for my son, a Navy Corpsman to fidget about when he vacations.
Hey c’mon now– he needs something to do, right? 😉 He has the promise of his Corpsman buddies to do a Medical Mission. How nice is that!
Yours truly at Your service- I live in the Resort. I will make sure you’re never wanting for anything.
Premiere healthcare that is more than affordable- Manila has some of the more advanced modern medical care hospitals in Asia for a fraction of the cost. One I recommend is the St. Luke’s Hospital and Medical Center. I’ve been admitted at its ER twice and I like it better compared to my ER experiences in California. I was there at the same time as when Gloria Macapagal, ex-president was there. Click the link for a look-see on just how affordable an ER visit is. If you wonder why that is- Philippines is still classified as a ‘developing’ country. With that designation comes cheaper overall standard of living that have beckoned more and more Westerners to permanent residency.
High standard of living for foreign money- US Dollar, the Pound Sterling, and the Euro are some of the foreign money that come into our little town courtesy of ex-pats and foreigners who have found lives in this corner of the world. Their foreign money count for a lot and buy a lot here. This mean a higher standard for the above-mentioned foreigners.
Healthy way of life- island life is healthier for obvious reasons. The whole island of Mindoro is blessed with fertile arable land. Rice fields, coconut groves, fruit trees, bamboos and hardwood trees fill its mountains. It make for a very soothing green environment with hardly any pollution at all. The Palms Mindoro and Macopa Reefs are ideally situated to benefit from this arable green land. I am an ORGANICS consumer whenever possible. Work is underway towards self-sufficiency and control of what we consume. We harvest our own rice, veges, and make our very own bacon. Yeah!
The sea yields the freshest of catch You get to enjoy.
Guided recreational activities- scuba diving, fishing, we will take you to the local hotspots. Help yourself to catching your own dinner if you want!
Hiking trails galore. Brave an overnight trek to Mount Iglit Wildlife Refuge or stay in-resort and hike the hilly terrain of Macopa Reefs, all up to you.
Swim as a form of exercise and snorkel at the same time.
Or sail, kayak, dolphin sight-see, you can be as active as your energy dictates 😉
Mother Nature provides endless entertainment. Enjoy reds and oranges and blues sunsets. Star gaze, we are at the Equator. You’ve never seen the Milky Way if you’ve never seen it from this vantage point. Dance on the sand in the moonlight. Admire a tree full of fireflies. Then let the sound of waves lull you to sleep. How richly deserved!
Forays into Manila or at least Batangas City are a must for grocery runs like milk and fresh orange juice. You can ride shotgun, I drive, ha ha!
The drive to the Pier at Abra de Ilog is 3.5 hours but I get it at 2. 😉
Or we can hop on a commuter plane and be in Manila within 40 minutes. Fresh milk, orange juice, cheeses, steaks and pizzas are not available in the island the way we Westerners would like it so we trek. And that’s ok. I welcome all of these actually. To me it’s great back-to-basics life; so simple yet so enjoyable.
As for me personally, I am an American Adventurer Entrepreneur pursuing my Freedoms to do so. I was born in the Philippines and this is “full circle” but I will always be an American!
Let’s go on this adventure together.
After all~ “We are the Captains of our own destiny.”
