For the first time ever, our favorite Biyahero travels to Dinagat Islands! In this adventure, Drew visits the country's longest fully-submerged cave in Lake Bababu! He also gets to swim in the blue-green waters of Pangabangan Island.

Hence, I asked fellow travel bloggers and other well-traveled Pinoys to share must-see natural pools in the Philippines. Are you excited as I am? Here we go.
