After 3 stops, we were so hungry! The package includes a lunch buffet at Corregidor Inn’s La Playa Restaurant. This is also where we stayed for the night.



IMG_1022Upon arrival, you’ll pass by the bar were a single serving of iced tea will be provided by the server. The food was not bad nor impressive. Just enough to load up for the next phase of our tour.




 We had our dinner also at La Playa Restaurant since this is one of only two restaurants (that I know of) in Corregidor. The other is McArthur Cafe nearby. We had Chicken Pork Adobo and BBQ spareribs. My taste buds wasn’t impressed and I felt it was overpriced.
