I am staying about 10km N. or Dumaguete. I have swam all over mexico and oceans on both USA coasts with no problems.
Only here am I getting rashes and stings from the water. It's either jelly fish larvae or parasites. The water looks clear, except for the morons to dump their clothes and other crap occasionally in the ocean but I will not continue to swim here if I keep breaking out. Anyone know of any cities or places close to Dumaguete that do not have this problem? A friend closer to Dumag will not swim at all due to bad ocean water even though he owns land on the beach.
