At last summer is back! Bright blue skies, a sea breeze, and nature abundantly green and fresh after all those weeks of grey sky, drizzle and night and days of heavy downpours. Climate change is real and not a hoax as some world leaders are...More

Truly an underrated tourist destination. So many places to visit and so many things to do so time management would definitely come into play. Be wary though of the port and ship crossing payment and boarding system. They leave a lot to be desired so...More

Nakakapagod na byahe, sobrang layo. Mahal ang foods, mahal lahat. Yung sand bar island lang ang maganda sa lahat ng napuntahan namin. Yung falls ang hina ng agos ng tubig at medyo marumi.

Worth it. Amazing landscapes and gorgeous sceneries, we did the tour for about two and a half days and we really enjoyed it well. Just don't forget to bring plastic or paper bags 'cause camiguin is going on a plastic-free campaign.

I feel our time and money were wasted going to this over rated Island. The hype and write ups about the Island were extremely exaggerated. If the hype is 100 actual was less than 10. Facilities were very poor, people were unfriendly, prices of foods,...More

Hello Maila_ani, A friend and I will be visiting Camiguin flying from Manila to CGO, can you please pass me the information of the transportation service that can pick us up from CGO airport and take us directly to the port where we can take a ferry to Camiguin. Initially we were thinkingo of flying to Cebu then fly to Camiguin. But we are looking at other options of flying to CGO instead, we are not to keen of the early morning flights from Cebu to Camiguin. Thanks

Sorry about the slow response...When you arrive at CGO, just get your luggage and go outside. There will be many private vans and cars available. I don't know how much private transportation is to Balingoan for the Ferry... More
