Approximate cost of Siargao -Surigao -Butuan-CDO 5 days 4 nights pasyal (Note: di kmi masyadong nagtipid sa food haha so kung di kayo mahilig magfood trip mas mababa pa dito ang rates )
Good for 1 person:
Roundtrip airfare via Cebu Pac. : PHP 3.1k
(mine was Davao-Cebu-Siargao then CDO-Davao, but my friends had the Manila-Cebu-Siargao then CDO-Manila trips, but almost same rates lang)
Siargao accomodation : 3 person a room for 2 nights at Ocean 101 Surf Resort in GL (1.6k per room), so approx. PHP 1.1k per person
Transfer from Siargao Airport to GL (the place for surfing): PHP 900 for the whole van. so php 300 per person
Surfing Lessons: PHP 500.00 with instructor and surf board (this is not the hotel rate, we asked the surfer-husband of Marife, who owns the famous Marife's Surfer Food Eatery to teach us haha kasi mas mura ng di hamak)
Habal-Habal ride to downtown: PHP 30.00 each person. We spent about PHP 700.00 each for all our habal habal rides.
Food: Marife's Surfer Food. We made a palista style. Total for our two days, two nights stay is PHP 1,800 for the three of us. So approx. 600 each for all our meals in Siargao :-) Cheap!
Island Hopping: Boat rent is PHP 1,700 per boat + 50 pesos per person entrance to one of the islands + packed lunch. Since we were four in island hopping tour, it came down to only about 600 each. this one is good for the whole afternoon.
