I may not have been to the place yet, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been making plans. Well, technically, it’s not me who has been planning the whole thing, but I do know what is going on. In case, you do get enticed to pay this neck of the woods a visit, here is some useful information.
How to get to Caramoan Islands
First you need to get to the Philippines, which I assume is easy enough for those who are in other countries. From Manila (other cities may have flights to Bicol but Manila is your best bet), you can take a Cebu Pacific flight to Naga City. This is one of the major cities in the Bicol Region.
From Naga City, you need to go to either Sabang Port. The trip will take about an hour and the cost will depend on the mode of transportation. Public transportation such as buses and jeepneys are available; the cost anywhere from PHP 65 to PHP85 (less than USD2).
From Sabang Port, you need to go to Guijalo Port. Travel is by boat and it takes about 2 hours. This will cost around PHP120. From there, you can get to Gota Village or wherever you are staying.
Here’s the better alternative for those who do not want to worry about all the transfers. Just make sure you get a flight to Naga City and let your resort handle all the transfers! Both Gota Village and La Playa will gladly do this for you for a reasonable price.
