Camiguin Travel Guide | My Solo Backpacking Adventure

How to go to Camiguin :
Option 1: Direct Flight from Manila to Camiguin
– There are direct flights from Manila to Camiguin. You may hire a habal-habal or multicab to go to the destination of your choice.

Option 2: From Cagayan De Oro (This is what I did)
– From Agora bus terminal, you need to ride a bus going to Balingoan bus terminal, around 2 to 3 hours land trip with fare of 150 to 250 pesos.When you arrive at Balingoan bus terminal you need to transfer to a barge going to Camiguin Island. The port is walking distance from the bus terminal. Travel time is around 1 hour with a barge fare of 150 to 180 pesos and the terminal fee 15 pesos. Upon arriving at Benoni port you may rent a habal-habal (like what I did) for 800/day or multicab (not sure of the price, sorry).
Note: In my case, I contacted Kuya Nads prior to my trip since he was highly recommended by some travelers. He served as my driver/ tourist guide and photographer. Promise, He is like a Pro when it comes to taking pictures hehehe. He even assisted me in looking for joiners on the boat to White Island and Mantigue to minimize the cost. You may contact Kuya Nads in his FB account:
I stayed at Ba’ay by Vjandep (350/night) it is located in the town proper, a few steps away from Gaisano Mall Camiguin. It’s a dorm type accommodation and I was lucky because no one booked during my stay so I have the entire room by myself for 3 days, yey! Hehe. Here’s the contact number if you want to make a reservation: 09063492431.

Sorry I wasn’t able to list down my expenses but around 5,000 is enough to tour you around camiguin. It will always depend on your spending of course hehe. (Magastos ako sa food besh lol).
