|Camiguin Island, Tourist Map|
Because I had to see more of the churches than just the Old Church Ruins. Churches are one of the old structures any place would have. Visiting parishes is like taking bits of glimpses of the locals’ life.
I had to see familiar places. The ones I only get to see on postcards and travel brochures for some time now. The ones that held memories, laughter, hopes, and dreams. I had to travel back in time and partly relive those moments.
For the love of water, I had to check them out. I may not have taken a swim at the cold spring resorts (with lack of time – boooo!) but I was rooting it all out for the hot spring.
I only get to visit Katibawasan Falls, the few more I reserve for my next visit. I wanted to stay longer and trek the mountains that I just marvel at the grounds. Duty called and I had to answer. I will have a date with Mt.Hibok-Hibok one of these days.
***Tour Guide Rate for Mt. Hibok-Hibok starts at 1000Php/group
- Katibawasan Falls
- Tuasan Falls

Proudly standing beside the highway. I could not get enough shots of them. Yes. They drained out my batteries. LOL! But nothing beats the old but still standing structures that were witnesses of time.
But I was advised not to cross the waters. My hosts were concern with the bad weather that it was better not to island hop. After which, they made me promise to come back. Now, how was I to decline?^^
***Rates will be 400Php per outrigger boat/6 Pax
- White Island
- Mantigue Island
And because I refused to leave Camiguin without getting to know more of it. I went off the familiar road and trusted the local guides to take me somewhere else. The result was priceless! Yes, I may be easy to please and entertain but, then again, the locals had already won my heart.
Multicab (Driver : Tour Guide) 1, 500Php/day
Motorcycle (Driver : Tour Guide) 600Php/day
Motorcycle for Rent 400Php/day
These are the suggested rates for transport tour fees. Multicab seats 6-8 people and all rates are good for 8 hours rental.

+ Your dry packs will come in handy. It will be nice to confidently island hop knowing your gadgets are safely dry.
+ Cameras with extra batteries is a must. It will be a whole day of frolicking under the sun. Better be equipped with extra camera life or be sorry.
+ Should you be traveling solo, don’t forget to bring your tripod. I had funny epic fail shots when I asked the driver to take it. LOL.
+ Trust your hired driver. They usually are the ones who, not only knows the place better, but can make you have the grandest time you’ll ever have. Tell them your itinerary and ask them if there’s anything else you need to add and must not miss.
