Our Calaguas Island Escape

 We had planned this trip since hoshi was far far away for 6 months!
dapat Caramoan but since weather is unstable and para na den may pahinga
we went to

yey! ang tagal ko ng gustong puntahan ung place pero ang layo kasi.
we rented a car and set to go na agad,

our itinerary was supposed to be
5 days but due to circumtances haha that i cant reveal. Vacation for 4 days na lang

DAY 1 
3am - Departure at home
9am - jolibee at Gumaca
12 noon - lunch at DAET.

 i thought gagabihin kami sa byahe but again i underestimated hoshi driving skills we were at Paracale around 2pm buti smooth lang ang drive

2pm - Check in 

Paliza del Rio Tourist Inn

Payed for our car parking P300 for a day.

then free time na for tomorrow preparation to the island.

so eto na nga i search and ask sa mga internet friends where can we book an tour package to the island para hassle free kesa mag DIY pa kami hassle sa bitbitin.

i came across Backpackers Philippines page and find (DRUMROLLS)
Kuya Alson  who caters travelers kahit hindi weekends. that time kasi puro weekends lang ang package. kailangan daw ng minimum na tao. 
it was monday when we went to calaguas.

8am meet  up at PARACALE PORT

Enjoy ang batang sobrang hyper.

it was already 2pm! when we departed from Paracale imagine my irritated face.
but kuya alson explain naman everything that we are only joining a family who also going that day there  reason naligaw sa sariling BANSA! hahaha sorry i was really irritated and GUTOM that time. sayang ung time na andon na sana kami sa beach. arg!
but since kuya alson is accomodating and keep on apologizing. aarte pa ba ako ? wala naman akong yacht. haha!


siguro malas lang talaga ung araw na un. haha!
when we reach the island the supposed to be kuyas or kasama ni kuya alson that will take care of us in the island was gone! umuwi daw kasama ung pagkain namin kasi akala di na kami natuloy kasi anong oras na daw wala pa kami! HUHU ayaw ko na!

we stayed in iLOVECalaguas resort.
buti na lang marami kaming baon pagkain. so they let us stay in there resort.
mind you WALANG SIGNAL so we cant contact kuya alson.
mabait naman ung care taker inasikaso kami and binigyan pa kami ng FISH kasi ulam namin ay pansit canton! haha.

we cant let the negatives ruin our trip.
after settling in.
Takbo agad sa DAGAT.


it was getting dark na when we went to the barangay to buy our dinner.

at the end of the day its you who you choose to be.
so good vibes lang para HAPPY.

but later that night nun patulog na kame!
kuya ALSON appeared at our door! haha.
apologized for everything that happens and then sya na daw ang bahala samin.

Early wake up time 7am for breakfast
then Trekking.

it will take 10-15 mins of walking to reach the top.
pero paakyat so nakakahingal.

Napagod sya kargahin ng tatay nya.

Family time is everything.

after 30 mins bumaba na rin kami kasi uulan na.

by 10am we started our Island hoping going to balagbag island and snorkling somewhere in the middle of the sea.


by 2pm we packed up our bags
we really had a great time 
the beach is serene and peaceful to watch.
bonding at its most
 thanks to the No signal No cellphone holding problem.

thanks to Kuya Alson. i highly recommend him for your Calaguas Experience.

Travel because money returns but time doesn’t
