Jawili Falls in Tangalan, AklanIt was my second day in Aklan and all of Panay and I was raring for another adventure. Top of my list was going to Tangalan, Aklan and see Jawili Falls for myself. While planning for this Panay Island Trip, my good friend Pol Tonel suggested that a visit to this waterfall was well worth it.
