This is the continuation of my Coron escapade, My second part of continuous journey!. I have my previous post before and if you haven’t yet read the first one, click here. ☚
We started the day having a breakfast in Amphibiko lodge. Breakfast time to start the adventure! right? 😉 So I had a small serving of Cornsilog which is a short term for Corned beef, sinangag (fried rice) and pritong itlog (fried egg) plus a cup of kapeng barako that somehow helps complete my meal! then off to another expedition(but seriously I’m still GUTOM!! haha gutum much!)
Off into the ocean and we went to our first stop SIETE PICADOS: We went snorkeling there and I was so delighted to see different kind of fish, especially the stripe one! I like it so much! Many of it like to swim with me too but I was just at the stairs holding my lifevest (takut eh!) 😂. The boatman told us not to step on the bottom because there are many sea urchins laying or hiding on to the corals so better be careful guys! (it is bit scary! right? but because I am not a good swimmer, it’s okey for me to staying afloat hehe. All in all we just spend 30 minutes in that place taking pictures and exploring the place.
In order to get to BARRACUDA LAKE: Our next stop! is to climb up again on tricky limestone rock with the help of this dos-por-dos wooden stairs hehehe 😊. The pathway to the lake was too small that allowing only a few people to hang around (bawal malikot or else hulog ka! hahaha)
We had our trip last February 16-20 this year. My friends and I went to Coron,Palawan via Cebu Pacific. We availed one of DIY Coron’s service. Reuel my officemate is the one who made all the effort to make this trip worth a cent. DIY arranged everything for us (don’t know how much we cost for that haha basta enjoy ok na Lol :P) services include airport transfer, lodging, boat trips, fees, breakfast an lunch during the tours, merienda ( which is maruya and softdrinks) 🙂 haha everything except for the airfare and DINNER!!!!!
We’re here!! Welcome to Busuanga Airport ✈
From the minute we landed into Busuanga Airport, they took care of everything. With banner pa nga hehe as a warm welcome haha. We were picked up by Kuya mabait (forgot his name) hahaha with his white van and drove us to Amphibi-ko lodge where we will stay.
Amphibi-ko lodge is just a couple of steps away from the port area..:P hmm really accessible hehehe.
The more the merrieR!! ⛵ Cost sharing Lol 🙂
we had our lunch at the boat mini dinning area haha medyo siksikan nga lang 🙂 but that was the best lunch ever!. It was a feast for us.. Mga hungry monster! Lol 🙂 we had ensaladang talong, seafood, banana and fried chicken para sa mga allergic sa seafood haha.
Be proud that Asia’s longest dual zipline can be found right inside our country. So, what are you waiting for? head to Cagayan De Oro and conquer you fear in height. Visit dahilayan adventure park or simply click their site athttp://www.dahilayanadventurepark.com👈 and book for all rides, experience the exciting fun of FLYING!
Because we wanted to make the most out of our stay in CDO. Me and my friends decided to try zipline and whitewater rafting!(actually i don’t have budget for that nga eh hahaha pero since naroon narin lang ako eh why not GO saGO nalng! Bahala na si Batman 😂.
We availed all zipzone rides (it was 3 rides po). They have three ziplines in the park and tones of activity such as zorb, ATV or horse riding. In zipline 320mt is the first ride, 150mt is the 2nd ride then last is the 840mt (longest dual zipline).
KATIBAWASAN FALLS – (Camiguin Island, Philippines)
Katibawasn falls is located at the foot of Mt. Timpoong, 5Km(3.1 mi) southeast of Mambajao, it measures 250 ft high. down into a man-made pool surrounded by orchids and wild greenly ferns. Water is superb relaxing and really cold but not good for diving :). From downtown Mambajao, you can hire a habal-habal or multicab that will takes 5-10 minutes travel.
You only have to pay 20 php entrance fee (per person) to be able to see and experience the Katibawasan falls.
The sight of nature was superb and worth it! . It was a perfect place to sink in after a long hours stay in white beach and for me it was even colder than the cold spring :). The falls was simply spectacular! The water was coming from high above the cliff and falling down like a giant shower!!
After we explore the beauty of white island, we all had to go back to our cottage for a quick lunch before we finally visited all the other notable tourist spots in the area.
FIRST STOP OVER: Catarman Church Ruins (Gui-Ob Church). The Old Catarman Church Ruinsis located in Bonbon, it was the remains of the 1871 volcanic eruption that wiped outCatarmanwhich was a picture of the illustrious Spanish settlement that was established in 1697, only the adobe walls and belfry was left as of today that survived the devastating wrath of nature. Nakaka-amazed yung structure kasi sabi ni manong tourist guide eh gawa daw sa corals yung church which is true nga 😀
Try to visit Camiguin 🙂 A Hawaii version of the Philippines. Wherein there is lots of mountain and active volcanoes that offer nice view on the Island. This place is really blessed on its cultural, and rich historical treasures that you will never forget. I should say Camiguin is indeed beautiful and I will call it paradise 🙂
Leny and I
I really like the uninhabited white island called white sand beach. It ‘s about 1-2 kilometer far from the shore. Good thing is that we rented a cottage that is nearly close to the beach 😊. During high tides, this sand bar submerges on the sea and in low tide, you can actually go there and enjoy the fine sand and crystal clear water plus the nice view of Mt. Hibok-hibok.
