Highlights:

1. Our call time was at 3am to go to Balingoan port to Camiguin. Our driver Gammy said we should be at the port before 5am. He drove like crazy for us to get there. I didn’t even get a chance to close my eyes inside the van. Too bumpy for my taste. Its 2 hrs drive from CDO to Balingoan port and another 2 hrs ferry ride to Benoni port in Camiguin.

2. 9 hour day tour in Camiguin in a multicab: Katibawasan Falls, check in at July’s Haven, Old Volcano viewpoint, Walkway to the Old Volcano and stations of the cross, Sunken Cemetery, Old Church Ruins, Sto. Nino Cold Spring (where we also had our lunch) and Ardent Hot Spring.

3. If you’re not going to swim, you could skip the cold springs but make sure to take a dip at Ardent Hot Spring. Too good for tired muscles. Perfect to end the day tour.

4. Dinner was at Terrazas Restaurat just walking distance from July’s Haven. They offer Filipino and International dishes. Our order came after 1 1/2 hrs! And it was wiped out in less than 30 minutes. Food was good though but the service is real slooooooooow.
