On the Immigration Website of the goverment you can find a Address List of all Immigration Offices, where you can apply for a visa extension. To reach this country, international travelers can fly to the capital or large cities with an airport internationally as Cebu, Davao, Laoag and so on. Many tourists prefer to travel in Ninoy Aquino (NAIA International Airport) in Manila - even I prefer (and I recommend) to fly to Cebu City.

When I am in Cebu, I always stay in the Alpa City Suites Hotel it is very clean, comfortable, have big rooms with free Internet (LAN and WiFi), every room has a small kitchenette and the stuff is very friendly and helpfull. One thing is curios in the Alpa City Suites Hotel: If you book direct, it is more expensive (even with their special rates, what they have from time to time), than if you book the Alpa City Suites online on Last time I asked (again), why they don't give discount, if I book direct and they say, that this is the policy of the Hotel Management. Cebu is much more nice, more calm and more safe and you can fly from Cebu to any other Airport within the Philippines, or easy go anywhere else here within the Philippines. Every Diveresort will be happy to arrange the transport to their place for you, or even pick you up in your Hotel in Cebu City.
