Camiguin and a Bit of CDO

July 13, 2014 Tsina 0 Comments

I lola mode on our last day. We went back in Cagayan de Oro, and we planned to do the rafting. Unfortunately, I had my visit. :P I stayed in the room, and they joined other group for the rafting adventure.

We stayed at the Win Min Transient Inn. This is located in the Agora area, and the transient inn is open 24/7. 
I waited for them, and they returned happy, and excited to tell me about their rafting adventure. Good. However, I would like to experience river tubing the next chance I get.

Feel free to browse through my Camiguin stories. Although the first visit has more detailed breakdown. :P

We arranged a countryside tour with Kuya Teddy, and I was able to visit these spots for the first time, the Katibawasan Falls and the Ardent Hot Spring.


I went back to my first love, the sole reason that I would never get tired of visiting Camiguin, the White Island.


I also wrote a short review of our artsy accommodation in Camiguin, the Enigmata Tree House.


I wrote a more detailed breakdown of expenses on my first trip. Go back in time, and visit this one. :P

Enigmata Tree House: Artsy Accommodation in Camiguin

July 13, 2014 Tsina 0 Comments

I arranged our trip in Camiguin last December. I had many options, but I chose the Enigmata Tree House. Just based on the photos online, I thought it would be lovely to stay here.

When we first arrived in Enigmata, I felt the hesitation on my travel buddies. I was the only one giddy. I travel on budget, but I travel to see something different too. A tree house accommodation is a treat.

We stayed at the Eagle's Nest Suite, the biggest room. We went to the reception-slash-art gallery, and paid PhP 1350/night for the three of us.

Let me give you a quick tour of the Eagle's Nest Suite, alright? This is the entrance  and the hammock area. But the entrance of our room is on the other side. Refer to the second photo. 
duyan, baby :P

When we entered the room, we immediately see the bed. But the other bed is on the topmost portion of the room.

I enjoyed the duyan night, and if only for the experience, I would recommend staying here. However, we had insect bites. Make sure to bring insect repellent lotions.

Camiguin, My First Love

July 13, 2014 Tsina 0 Comments

Camiguin is my first love. Seriously. The White Island is simply beautiful. If only I could stay at the White Island forever. Sigh, beach please!
ready for the White Island :P
On our second day, we went to the White Island. When we reached the island, we rented a big umbrella, and settled on one spot. We had our breakfast by the beach too. Inform Kuya Teddy that you'd like a packed food in the White Island.

I went around the island, and took lotsa photos. I asked someone to take my photos too. Hehe.

And so, while I was busy camwhoring, the two of them were getting their henna tattoo. :P I didn't get one, of course.

When the henna dried, they finally joined me in the beach. We found starfishes, hurray. We took few photos, and returned the starfish.  Tell me, these photos are beautiful.
just the two of us, and the beach

Camiguin, you'd always be my first love. I would never get tired of going back to you.

The Must-Visit Spots in Camiguin

July 12, 2014 Tsina 0 Comments

Oh, right! We went to CDO-Camiguin last December! Yes, last December! Blame Mark, I only got the photos last weekend, thanks to Jenny. :P

Camiguin is my first love. I have so much love for White Island. I seriously would never get tired of going back to Camiguin. The beach, the sand.. I could imagine the white sand at this moment, ugh. 

Initially, David and Mark would go with me on this trip. But David had another urgent commitment. Whatever. Instead, Jenny joined us on this trip! It was my first time to travel with the both of them. 

whut is selfie?
The new Laguindingan airport is an hour away from Cagayan de Oro City, we rode a rental car and paid PhP 200 each. When we reached the city proper, we took another van going to  Balingoan port, and spent another 2 hours in the road. Plus more than an hour in the ferry going to Benoni Port in Camiguin. Yeps, that long travel time for the love of Camiguin. :P
the ferry photo op
I arranged a tour with Kuya Teddy again. We went to Enigmata first, our Camiguin accommodation, and then headed off to start the tour. First stop, Katibawasan Falls.

This is my favourite shot in the falls. Catch me, I'm falling, falling fast again! :P
falling fast again :P
As an added bonus, we were able to try the delish kiping! Must not be missed when going to the falls, alright?

For our next stop, we went to the Walkway to the Old Volcano and Stations of the Cross. Jenny wanted to see all the stations, but we begged off.  Sorrey.

So, we decided to proceed to our next destination, the Sunken Cemetery. The camera tricks never get old. :P

For our next stop, we went to the Old Church Ruins.

The Sto. Nino Cold Spring Resort saved us from the humid day. We decided to take a plunge in the cold water!

selfie overload :P
We left the cold spring resort, and went to the Ardent Hot Spring! Hehe. It was a little far, but worth the trouble. 

The first day of the trip was well-spent in touring these spots in Camiguin. For my second time, I was able to visit the spots I missed on my first visit. Good job!
