Hi my dear sissies! I have a trip to Surigao this coming Sept. 18 - 22 together with my 2 friends. Please help me with our itinerary since i can't find a detailed one that i can follow with regards to our sched. Will be arriving after lunch ata and then leaving early MNL - SUG- MNL. I dont have any idea where to stay and ang problema ko talaga e yung habal habal takot ako dun if that is the motorcycle  :'( baka some of you know how i can get to point A to point B without riding that takot ako ma aksidente talaga  :( I'm thinking of doing the ff:

Day 1: Surigao - arriving around 1pm - Stay where? what to do after checking in? (city tour) eat where?

Day 2: Bucas Grande via Hayanggabon - go to Surigao terminal and ride the bus to Hayanggabon (p200@) - Haggle with the manong boatman for the tour there. allot how much for this? and do you suggest we stay overnight? saan po kaya?

Day 3: Siargao - Paano pala ako makakapunta ng Siargao from Bucas Grande? Boat din? Should i make prior arrangements with the boatman we rented out? Magkano ang price range pagka ganito po?
- Arrive in Siargao - travel to General Luna (any other transpo rather than a habal habal?)
Stay where? will check cloud 9 =)

Day 4: Stay in Siargao or go back to Surigao? How many hours po ang travel time?

Day 5: Back to manila

Will greatly appreciate your inputs TIA  ;)

Day 1: When you get to Surigao, you can stay at Tavern Hotel or EY so you're just right in the city. You can just walk around if you just want to see the small city (you won't get lost -- it's so small) but if you're up for it, you can got to Mabua beach, the pebble beach, which is about 30 minutes away. Best to go at sunset; the sunset is nice there. Ask your hotel for transportation services to Mabua.

If you just feel like crashing in your hotel, stay at Le Chard bed and breakfast. Gaisano mall is just walking distance so you can just go there for your food and other needs.

To eat, I suggest Ocean Bounties near the palengke, Islands right in the city, Calda Pizza along the boulevard, Bastie's right outside the airport or Mooon Cafe in Gaisano mall.

If you want to try the nightlife, you can go to J-Spot next to Calda along the boulevard for house music and drinks or Kody's for a band and beers.

Day 2: I don't know about the boat rates and the only accommodation I know there is Club Tara. Pricey and not well-maintained but you don't have a lot of options.

Day 3: Yes, you take a boat from Socorro to Dapa in Siargao from Bucas Grande/Sohoton. I'm not sure of the rates either but yes, make prior arrangements.

When you get to Dapa, you can take a tricycle or a van to General Luna. But if you want to get around GL, I'm sorry but your only option is to ride a motorcycle or habal-habal. That's how people get around in GL.

Lots of accommodations. If you want somewhere near Cloud 9, try Ocean 101, Cloud 9 resort or Sagana if you can afford it. If not, there are so many there, you can just literally walk around and go door-to-door.

Day 4-5: It depends on what time your flight is. If you have the 9:35AM Cebu Pacific flight, you have no choice but to leave on Day 4. If you'll be on the 1:20PM AirPhil flight, you can leave early in the morning on Day 5.

Travel time is between 2.5 to 3.5 hours by boat.

^^There are ATMs in Surigao and one in Dapa in Siargao. But try to bring all you need na or get it from Surigao. The one in Dapa is notoriously unreliable and also very inconvenient to get money from if you'll be staying in GL.

Sayang you'll only be staying until the 22nd. The surf comp starts the very next day on the 23rd. :)

Hi mga sis! Im planning to go back to Siargao next year (c/o Cebpac P7 fare) thru Bxu but this time i want to go to the enchanted river and tinny-an falls first before heading to Siargao. May van ba na bare rent for this? Butuan- Enchanted river- tinuy-an falls- Surigao? Baka may alam kayo let me know please!!

TIA

^Butuan is considered a big city so I'm sure you'll find vans for rent. Wala nga lang ako marecommend. :P

Tinuyan falls and Enchanted River are very nice, worth the trip. I went to Enchanted River on an Easter Sunday, there were so many people so I wasn't able to really enjoy it but I could still see how beautiful it is.

Hello mga sis! Ive been told about a Cebu-Sayak/Siargao flight which is also a viable option rather than a Butuan-Surigao since this will definitely take longer. Has anyone tried this route? Im from Manila and I even love to do a side trip to Cebu kahit one day gala lang. Bihira ba ang promo fares for Cebu-Siargao?

^nag sale ang cebu pac nung weekend, siargao-cebu, Php 1,100+ for 2.  gusto ko na sanang i-book 'to then hanap ng cebu to manila.  kaso naisip ko pano kung delayed ang flight, patay na. so tyaga na lang siguro ko sa paghanap ng butuan to manila or surigao-cebu-manila.

any updated itinerary for S&S?
medyo confused ako sa directions if we want to go to Bucas Grande for the jellyfish swimming - ano ba best na route:
A. Surigao - Siargao (beaches sa Gen. Luna) - Bucas Grande - Surigao?
OR
B. Surigao - Bucas Grande - Siargao - Surigao?

take in to consideration na 5 days maximum lang yung allotted days for the whole S&S trip

@Kaiz and tinapay: Thanks for the tip girls. :) I just hope the region would have recovered from the damage wrought by Pablo when we visit next year.

di ko alam best route, pero laging if the weather and waves permit ang drama ng bucas grande - kaya go for it agad pag cooperative ang mga ito.

btw, hindi laging season ng stingless jellyfish. namamatay daw kasi sila pag panahon na ng bagyo. di ba kakatapos lang ng Pablo dun sa mindandao.

anyway, kahit to follow na ang surifing sa cloud 9 at beaches ng dako at naked..
