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.

Beer at the Bay sa downtown: 25 pesos per bottle. 100 per person

Transpo to CDO (via fastcraft to Surigao then bus to CDO via Butuan): Approx. 500 per person

Hotel at CDO (we stayed at a hotel walking distance lang from LimKetKai Mall): PHP 2200 for the room with extra bed, good for three. we stayed for two days so it's PHP 1,400 each person

Whitewater rafting in CDO: PHP 1,500 per person. not including meals. For meals it's about PHP 150 - 200.00 dun sa resto na last stop ng rafting.

LIMKETKAI CENTER dinners : about PHP 300- 400 per person. We ate at BFB and the cafe at the rooftop of Limketkai. Food expenses about PHP 1,200.00 per person (splurge ito, kasi nagbeer and coffee pa kami sa mga shops sa Ketkai after dinner)

Pasalubong: Pastels, shirts etc.: PHP 1000.00 per person

Taxi around CDO and to the airport:  PHP 350.00 per person


TOTAL EXPENSES PER PERSON:  PHP 13,150 ALL IN for the five day North Mindanao trip. (We took this trip early november, so offpeak season sya)

^^sis am sorry pero i more of a visual person kasi eh, i can picture the store in my mind now. kung hindi ako nagkakamali sis, 3 lang naman kasi yung tindahan na pinuntahan namin to buy souvenirs sa sagada eh. on the way to the famous restaurant that serves very delicious meal, dun sa right side, merong magkatabi na store. isang store na medyo malaki na may wood/glass display tapos sa katabi naman is maliit na nagtitinda nang mga t-shirt souvenirs. dun ko nabili sa malaking store with glass display yung magnet, dream catcher at bonnet

sa maliit  na store naman yung mga pangginaw saka poncho

sa pagbaba to the said famous restaurant naman meron isang bahay converted ang first floor into store. dun ko nabili yung honey tapos sa store na ito, merong pinto papasok sa bahay talaga nila (personal area nila) tapos sa right side naman yung cashier nila.

i am sssoooo sorry, napi-picture ko sa mind ko but i cannot describe it fully.






^sis, sa unag hostel house pagbaba nang van kami tumira. bale, tapat sya nang barangay hall (?) where you will register if you will go to caves. db dalawa yung road? isang papunta sa baba direction to the said restaurant and the second road is the one leading to the lake...

For a short weekend getaway, we went to Anilao a month ago:

Transpo to Anilao: (my suggestion is to bring your own car tapos split the gas na lang among the group) Our ate brought her car, total gas to and fro with side trips to San Pascual and a coffee house in Batangas was about 2.4k all in including toll fee.

Breakfast: Mcdo at Star Tollways :-) less than PHP100.00

Lunch + Intro to Scuba (30 mins underwater) + snorkelling + island hopping + unlimited use of their facilities for the day: PHP1,800 in Planet Dive
 
We spent the day by:
--doing the intro to Scuba in the morning (it's a shore dive and a divemaster will do all the adjustments for you and your scuba gear so para ka lang nagsisightseeing underwater which is such an amazing experience!)

-- ate lunch then spent the early half of the afternoon island hopping and snorkelling

-- waited for the sunset by lazing around the beach with a good book and unlimited tea and coffee!

-- at sunset, went to San Pascual (you can also go to Nasugbu), bought lots of Dulong and Sinaing na tulingan to bring back to Manila

-- We ate dinner in San Pascual at a friend's house, but to complete the Batangas experience, one may eat at the known Bulalohan joint, Rose and Grace.

-- bought coffee beans at Cafe de Lipa

--travelled back to Manila

It's just a day trip but it was super fun and not too heavy on the pocket~ the most expensive part was the scuba + snorkel +food + island hopping in Planet Dive but it was so worth it! That intro dive made me a scuba addict!
