Camsur Escapade on Holy Week

Since SIL will be home this Holy Week and decided that Camsur would be our next destination, I made a research about it. None of us has been there yet, meaning… no tour guides. πŸ™‚ So I thought that reading would at least help us in some ways. Our initial plan was to go there by plane, actually we already booked last year, but Zestair cancelled all of their flights to Naga for an unknown reason at all. Maybe you already know how it feels like huh… 😦

Of course, Caramoan shouldn’t be missed! πŸ™‚ After having some research, I made a tentative itinerary for 6 days. Mahaba ba? πŸ˜‰ Well, I am not sure if it could be strictly followed… but I guess having this on hand would be a great help to all of us to keep track our schedule. So far, this is what I had showed to SIL and MIL:

Day 1 :

Arrival in Naga
Hotel Check in

Day 2:

(am) Donsol, Sorsogon: Whale Shark Watching/Interaction
(pm) Legazpi: Embarcadero Lighthouse Viewdeck + Daraga: Cagsawa Ruins

Day 3:

Going to Caramoan
Island Hopping Tour

Day 4:

Caramoan Island Hopping/
Shrine of our Lady of Peace
Hardcore Caving at Culapnit Cave

Day 5:

Going Back to Naga
Wakeboarding/ Daytour at CWC
Buy Pasalubong

Day 6:

Departure to Manila

I already checked for the rates of the activities included in our itinerary. It’s all based on the blogs I had read which were posted on 2010. Well, there might have been some changes now but at least it would serve as a guide right?

Whale Shark Interaction:
Admission – P100/pax
Boat – P3500/group (max of

Caramoan Island Hopping:
4 islands – P1500 (magkakalayo daw ang mga islands)
additional island – P500
8 islands – P3500

Hardcore Caving:
Fee – P20/person
tricycle fare to the cave & back – P200
tour guide fee – P200
use of gas lamp – P250
tip to cave exploring assistants – P40/person

MIL had our reservation at Caramoan Bed & Dine. I haven’t found any reviews about this place though. But if you’re looking for other accommodations in Caramoan, check this site.

And what awaits us this Holy Week? Oh my…. these photos were like talking to me! XD

Based on what I had read, most of the beaches near Gota beach will be closed for the shooting of Survivor. So, do you think we would be able to see the true beauty of Caramoan if it is prohibited to the Filipinos? Strange isn’t it? Filipinos are prohibited to set foot on his own land. Tsk tsk tsk…. It’s not only for a year but for so many years. 😦 Should we need a dialogue to the Camsur government?

Camsuroff limits??
