Bring aqua shoes! If you want to enter the cave, wear slippers or aqua shoes. You’ll thank me for it!

My home for the night. A very good purchase indeed. Coleman's Peak1 tent (good for 2 pax) proved to be a good tent during this trip. Waterproof, good ventilation, and spacious!

Island hopping cost – P3,500 / roundtrip (good for 25pax). We visited Borawan but it was too crowded. We decided to skip Dampalitan too because it would be the same case. So manong Edwin took us to a sand bar. It was perfect! Just us and a place where we could swim privately.
