It’s been awhile that we were looking for the Cagayan de Oro-Bukidnon-Camiguin-Iligan tour but we couldn’t find the best time for it. We had lots of things to consider, budget, time and work. Then one night an email coming from Airasia prompted on the screen, so I checked it then I found out there was a 99 base fare for CDO. My sisters and a friend decided to go for it. The airfare was 1,5++ each.
When we landed in
we were so
enthusiastic, everybody was looking forward what CDO would offer. We looked for
a transportation to bring us to our hotel, Laguindian
Nicholas Inn ,
CDO. Some van offers for 199 per head, some say taxi would be better since we
were four so we could save. One guy told us that he could take us to the city
for 600.00 opppss that is not allowed by Land transportation office. Riding a
taxi should always be by meter. We happened to hire a taxi driver, who agreed
to a meter. Sad to say his meter ran so fast that we didn’t reach the hi-way
the meter reader showed 103.00. And the worst of it he didn’t know the St.
Nicholas Inn that we had to drop off then look for ourselves. I used google map
thru my tablet and asked some locals where we could find the hotel. We took
rela (motorela), it’s a local public transportation, a tricycle but with a
different body. Finally we found the hotel then we left our bags in the hotel
to go to Bukidnon and experience Dahilayan Park Adventure and Delmonte
Plantations. Hayes St.
After our Bukidnon escapade, we booked for whitewater rafting adventure. My sister booked us in the Red rafts whitewater rafting. Early in the morning we prepared to conquer the rapids.
The river guides from Red whitewater rafting referred a guy, Jojo, who operates a tour in
. We had to leave
our hotel at 2:30 in the morning to catch the first trip in Camiguin
Island Balingoan Port
going to , the gate to Camiguin. Benoni Port can be explored in a day. Around
3:30pm we were done with our tour and were in the port to go back to Cagayan de
Oro. We reached our hotel around 11:00pm. Camiguin Island
We wanted to visit Iligan but mostly that we talked with, they said we should skip Iligan. Hopefully someday we could go and visit Iligan.
