Caramoan Itinerary

The Bicol Region is composed of six provinces: Masbate, Catanduanes, Sorsogon, Albay, Camarines Norte, and Camarines Sur. Caramoan is located in Camarines Sur.

Even though I live in Cavite (Region IV), I have to admit that it’s my first time to visit the Bicol Region. I guess I didn’t have enough resources to finance my trip back then.

Since I live with my family here in Philippines, I decided to go on a family trip. Fortunately, I found Alexandria Travel & Tours. They organized everything from the accommodation, boat rentals, and itinerary. They only charged 5,000 per head for a 3D2N tour in Caramoan (with side trip to Albay).

Instead of spending three days in Caramoan, I opt to go around Albay in our third day. Here’s how we spent our two days in Caramoan:

Day 1

Bag-ing – Tinago – Cagbanilad – Pitogo

We traveled from 9pm to 9am. The 12-hour long drive made us feel so exhausted. We started the Island hopping after lunch.

I would like to thank Alexandria Travel and Tours for arranging this trip. They are very friendly and flexible. The van provided is very comfortable. It also comes with a videoke! I like how they organized everything for us. I had a worry free travel!

If you’re looking for a cheap and nice accommodation, I highly recommendΒ Caramoan Rockwood Inn.Β It’s clean and cozy. The reason why I highly recommend it is because they serve super delicious food! In my three days stay there, I was always satisfied with their meals. I must say that you’ll get what you paid for.travel-with-karla-accommodation-review-3
