For KV’s birthday, we decided to do a Camiguin trip via CDO.
This was our Itinerary prior the trip.
If you read and compare them well you’d notice that our experience in Camiguin was shortened/limited/deprived.
We had two days but most of our time here were spent on the road and sea.
The road trip wasn’t nice. We had to siksik ourselves inside the van for 2-3hours with not enough room to move. 😌
The ferry ride was okay. The sea breeze felt relaxing, perfect afternoon nap spot for tired tourists like us.
Our bnb’s location was not okay. We arrived in Camiguin past sundown and wow we had to brave the bukid, the zigzag roads, the animal sounds, the rocky roads with only our motorbike’s headlight. Wow darkness. Afraid, I drove so fast. We even skidded as we were going downhill.
Then when we arrived at the location, we thought it was creepy. The place looked like a cabin in the woods. No one was around.
But later on the caretaker came with other guests and then fear stopped and we’re now seeing this place with a different perspective especially when the morning came. IT IS A CRAFTY NICE HOUSE!!
It is after all a recommended place plus the caretakers were really nice. (Check Booking.com and search for Camiguin Volcano Houses).
From then, we decided not to stress ourselves chasing the timetable. Instead, enjoy what’s available and accessible. So no more White Island tour and all other destinations but just Soda Pool and Tuasan Falls (these were nearby spots).
We drove our way around Mambajao. Then in a short while we had to leave.
It might have been a looooong trip going back and forth to Camiguin but I must say from what we’ve seen, the Island is promising. So, go and see Camiguin but Say No to Camiguin via CDO landtrip! KV, we must Camiguin!
