Understand edit

Town plaza

The town is typical for the Philippines with a lovely Catholic church, a market, quite a few candelarias serving cheap Philippine food, and not much else.

Outside town there are a number of beach resorts with the usual amenities. Most have boats available for diving trips out to nearby reefs. There is also one public beach where you can swim without paying a resort entry fee.

Map of San Luis (Batangas)

There are two highways to San Luis. The usual route is from Taal or Lemery either by jeepney or car. That highway is short and in good shape; traffic is rarely horrible but often heavy enough to be somewhat annoying. Beyond San Luis it continues south along the coast to Balite.

The other highway leads to Bauan where it connects to the main highway between Lemery and Batangas City; if you are coming from Batangas, this is the shortest route. That highway is two-lane blacktop, mostly good but with a few rough patches, does not wind much, and generally carries only light traffic.
