Caramoan, Cam. Sur – Getting There!

Last May 1-3, 2010 we got the chance to visit the majestic island of Caramoan. Everything is really beautiful and worth remembering. I have been trying to blog about it but works get into my way.  So, i would start on how to get there.


If your coming from Manila and you have the option to take a plane or bus.


From plane;


Manila Airport – Pili Airport – around 45 minutes (prices of tickets may vary)


Pili Airport – Sabang Port – around 45 minutes from a private van or you can rent a taxi (but i still don’t know how much thus it cost)

From Bus:

Pasay or Cubao Station  to Naga City – prices of tickets may also vary.

Or you can also come from Legaspi City but it was a long ride from there.


Sabang Port – Guijalo Port ( boat ride) around 2 hours   – Price is Php. 110.00



Boats can accomodate more than 50 people and more than 80 i think if it is bigger one.


Two hours of seating on the boat can really be painfull in your buttocks but you can enjoy beautiful scenery and maybe a chat with your friends can pass  time.
From Guijalo Port, you can find jeepney from there.  We were on a package that’s why we did not pay individually for the jeepney ride and i am so busy chatting and looking at the place that i forgot to ask the driver how much is the fare.
It’s another 1 hour to Paniman Island where our inn is located.  Don’t worry, there are roads that are not as bumpy as this but if you have not experience riding on a jeep going up and down the mountain, then you must be prepared yourself for this ride.
Paniman Island is the entry point for all island hopping. So, i highly recommended that you stay on this resort/inn .  I will be making a separate post for this place too.


Breeze and Waves is the right place for your Caramoan Adventure, they offer the best service, amenities and friendly staff and not to forget a very accomodating tour guide and now your ADVENTURE begin!

Can’t wait to see Caramoan? Watch out for the next post!

So, here’s my story:

It’s really been a dream for me and Mel to go to Palawan. We were so lucky that our plan was able to push through last May, 2009. It has many first for Peachy and a very unforgettable experience for our family considering that I will be reunited with my long lost biological mother.  Our arrival on Puerto Princesa’s airport was greeted by an unexpected heavy rain which was really very unusual considering that there are no announcements of any typhoon or rains. Luckily the sky was clear on the following day.

On Mother’s Day we celebrate the day with a City Tour, visiting the crocodile farm, butterfly garden and drop by at  Baker’s hill where we ate the famous and delicious Hopia.  They had a variety of delicious breads and cakes to choose from at a very affordable price. It was already getting dark, that’s why we were not able to go to Mitra Ranch. The following day was all excitement, we went island hopping and had the best experience in our life. We stay at Snake Island and it’s my first time to experience snorkeling. We also saw various corals and many different fishes that you cannot see just elsewhere.

Puerto Princesa is a city with many things to offer. There are many places to visit and the time was not enough for us to visit all of them. We decided not to go to the Underground River for two reasons. Although we already had our permit to go, we learned that there is an ongoing hike for life and the place were crowded with many hikers coming from different places, another thing is that we were a bit worried about the safety of Peachy, because we could not bring her inside the cave and we will just leave her on the sea shore. I really have big doubts over the idea of leaving her. Puerto Princesa is a place which offers fresh and great tasting foods, inexpensive sea foods and dining out is really great in this place of town. We are so thankful that God gave us sunny days to enjoy our vacation.

Palawan is a great place with its beautiful scenic and serene views and friendly person. Surely, you will have a very memorable experience just like our family had and you can’t wait for your next visit. Discover the beautiful island of Palawan and see for yourself the amazing wonders.

Ciao!
