For those who want a longer drive, the original road still stands and is called the Southern Luzon Expressway to Tagaytay City and then down to Nasugbu. For those who are interested in taking the newer route, which goes down Cavite Coastal Road to the Cavitex Highway and then through the largest tunnel in the Philippines that goes through Mount Pico De Loro.
The “tricycle” in the Philippines is a motorcycle with a carriage, and if you aren’t going on a tour it can be beneficial for you to learn how to use one while in Nasugbu. Be careful of getting scammed by anyone wanting payment for riding lessons, and be aware that there are areas in the city that tricycles can and cannot go.
