^^ For me sis, mas ok sa morning yung WWR, kasi 1PM start nung afternoon schedule, parang sobrang init nun! hehe Although, nung nag wwr kami, morning pero umitim parin kami ng todo. Kaya pala may mga nagbebenta dun ng leggings at yung panlagay sa braso :)

@sis frappy_mae try to text Ms. Brenda sis, baka meron siya sked at pwede kayo maisabay. Mas mura talaga. Like us, 3 pax lang kami then naisabay kami sa 13pax. Siguro if na push through yung unang plano namin na we will hire van na amin lang talaga eh mapapamahal kami.

@sis dimplesgon, yup pwede zipline and WWR on the same day. Yung sa amin sis, morning ang zipline then pm ang WWR. Sabi ng guide namin sa WWR we were lucky dahil mataas daw ang tubig, mabilis ang agos, and normally the advance course run 3-4hours. If im not mistaken mga almost 3 hours lang namin natapos yung sa amin. Good thing, pm sked namin.. we started around 3pm kaya di na mainit. I have friends before who tried WWR in the morning, naku sunog sila  ;D
sa kalagitnaan ng rafting namin eh bumuhos pa ulan at sobrang natuwa pa kami .. hehe. . exciting.

@sis katniss ilang days ba kayo sis? 4D/3N kami .. 1-2 Camiguin; 3-4 CDO na.

HTH

thanks sis bunso and sis Maein... ang usual offer kasi is zipline sa morning then WWR sa afternoon, i was just thinking kung ano ang mas better mauna sa morning?

....and talaga pa lang sandali lang ang course 3-4 hours lang ano? kasi sa davao parang maghapon ata kami nung nag WWR kami.

Pero i'm sure this CDO WWR experience will be different...excited na ako!

pa further help naman, dec 27-29 pa naman kami , 10 pax all adults
dec 27 540am arrival namin sa cdo, then dec 29 455pm ang flight back to manila.

I was thinking on this IT sana
day 1 wwr, bukidnon zipline, overnite at cdo
day 2 early to camiguin, tourists spots camiguin , overnite at camiguin
day 3 early to white island, back to camiguin resort, leave 10am camiguin resort going back to cdo
         probably arrive at cdo before 3pm in time for our 455pm flight

but since mga cousins and relatives ni hubby ang mga kasama namin (they are coming from USA) so hindi ako sure if kaya nila ng mabilisan at paspasan ang kilos , specially with the long almost 4 hours travel from cdo to camiguin and also pabalik. If ako lang kasi, si hubby and if yung mga frequent travel mates namin, Im sure carry namin etong sked na eto.

So I need help sana mga sis, if hindi kami mag camiguin, ano ang other options namin, para masulit namin ang 2nights/3 days. like ano pa ba ang pwede puntahan sa cdo and bukidnon? ok kaya na 1 nite stay sa cdo then 1 nite stay sa bukidnon- or where else.

pa help naman, need your inputs...thanks

^ sis, may wwr course rin sa CDO na whole day. Pero parang kapagod naman yata yun, hehe
http://www.riverraftingcdo.com/trips.html

I think ok naman yung IT nyo sis, yung nga lang make sure you stick with the schedule lalo na yung pabalik ng CDO, kasi syempre minsan, may mga unexpected na nangyayari, mahirap na maiwan ng flight. Actually parang ganyan rin samin. Pero 4 days kasi kami, so hindi namin pinagsabay yung wwr at zipline, pero day 2 and 3 nyo ganun rin samin. Although, 6Pm pa flight namin pabalik, so tagal namin naghintay sa airport.

Sis, if not Camiguin, pwede rin kayo mag river trekking, may mga sis tayo na naka-try nun. Pwede rin yung canopy walk. hehe Pero di ko pa na-try pareho yan, hehe. Yan kasi mga dapat gusto ko gawin noon, kaso dalawa lang kami. Wala kami nakasabay, mahal naman kapag kami lang. Or pwede rin kayo mag Iligan, sa Ma. Christina Falls. hehe pero di ko pa rin na try yun, hehe.


HTH :)

sis keri naman IT mo kaya lang based on our experience, di maasahan ang oras ng ferry sa port.

10am we arrived CDO, then nagtaxi kami to Balingoan Port 12 noon kami dumating .. ang nakasked na ferry is Ocean Jet 1:10pm daw, nakaalis ang ferry 2pm na going to Benoni Port (Camiguin).

Pabalik naman, may nakasked na 2pm MV Kalinaw, nakaalis 4:30pm na to Balingoan Port.

Basta sis, naguguluhan ako sa schedule nila. Kaya tingin ko mahirap na e sked mo Camiguin last day lalo pa't may hinahabol kayo na flight. Okay lang pag masunod yung oras ninyo, pano pag hindi? at matrafic na rin sa CDO.

thanks again sis bunso and sis Maein - yun nga eh, based sa binasa kong mga posts dito sa CDO threads, keri nga yung planned IT - pumapalpak lang talaga sa ferry time kasi nga hindi reliable.

super thank you sa mga feedbacks - if may iba pa kayong suggestions pa post lang please.

Now I am thinking if unahin ko na sa day 1 ang camiguin then day 2 & 3 na ang cdo/bukidnon.
para hindi kami ma hassle sa delayed ferry schedule if ever. what you think?

So many things to do... So little time

day 2 early to camiguin, tourists spots camiguin , overnite at camiguin
day 3 early to white island, back to camiguin resort, leave 10am camiguin resort going back to cdo
         probably arrive at cdo before 3pm in time for our 455pm flight

super tight sked nyo sis. pero try mo to sis ha if pwede sa inyo

Day 1: CDO arrival then head to Dahilayan .. 12nn alis na ng Dahilayan then travel to Balingoan Port, if maabutan nyo ang Ocean Jet better kasi 30-40mins travel time. At most 3pm nasa Benoni (Camiguin) na kayo nyan. Ang di ko lang alam travel time from Dahilayan, Bukidnon to Balingoan Port. Upon arrival sa Camiguin, check in muna and if kaya pa mag tour you can visit 2 spots pa either Katibawasan Falls or White Island then sa gabi yung Ardent Hotspring.

based on our experience: mas pinili namin ang 4pm White island to catch the sunset then umalis kami mga 5:30 na. Supposedly after pwede pa sana Ardent kaya lang, sumakit na ulo ko (migraine) .. kj nga eh. hehe.. balik bahay nalang.

Day 2: Half day Tour continuation
6am pwede na continue tour Katibawasan Falls (if nag white island na kayo), Old Volcano Walkway, Sunken Cemetery, Catarman Ruins, Soda swimming pool, Sto. Nino Cold spring.
2pm onwards travel back to CDO

Catarman yung last namin sis dahil 12noon na, so pinili namin na maglunch nalang sa J & A Fishpen malapit na to sa Port .. hindi na namin napuntahan ang Soda pool and Cold Spring kasi baka mabitin kami sa oras.. After lunch diretso na port, 2.5 hours kami nag-antay sa ferry so kung alam lang namin na delay e sana napuntahan pa namin yung 2 spots ..  8)


Day 3: am WWR -- 12noon tapos na kayo nyan. Lunch. then Airport na.  :)

hi sisses, usually ba fully booked mga white water rafting companies? Kase till now di pa kame nakakapag pa book for our water rafting sa Nov 3. I'm worried lang baka maubusan ng slot. Ano ba ideal na dapat magpabook sa rafting? 1 month before, 2 weeks before? Thanks! Also, any special pasalubong na mabibili sa CDO at Bukidnon. =)

^ sis, sa tingin ko oks lang naman kasi dami naman wwr organizer eh :) Ilan  pala kayo? Kami dalawa lang, days before lang ako nagpa-book eh.  Although, months before pa lang, nakapag-inquire na ko sa iba-iabng organizer.  Kasi nga dalawa lang kami, need namin na may makasabay na group. Tapos ayun, ilang days before, ni-follow up ko ulit  kung may kasabay na kami, tapos  Great White Waters yung nag-confirm na una. Kaya sa kanila na kami nag-avail. Ayun sulit naman :D

Pero kung madami naman kayo,sa tingin ko  hindi problema ang pagpapa-booking. Pero ewan ko lang rin sis huh, baka peak season pala yung November.
