AdventuRoj Surigao del Sur Adventure

Yet another outdated post of mine. Back when I wasn’t still a blogger, not even in possession of my baby Nikon D3000 DSLR. So  pardon me if my shots here aren’t as great. But anyway an adventure is an adventure no matter what, so here goes my Surigao adventure.

The Plan

I had always wanted to visit Surigao del Sur but with no one to accompany me, this hadn’t been realized. Not until last year when my roomate and friend invited me over to their company’s outdoor trip. The trip was scheduled on August 28-29, 2011. Destination is at Surigao del Sur, with the Enchanted River and Hinatuan Falls as the main courses.

What tempted me even more to come was that because the trip will be on a budget one. My friend, along with her co workers (of which I know no one. Oops. I haven’t thought of that) do know someone from Surigao who will host them (or us). That alone could already be big savings! Plus the vehicle that will be used will also belong to one of their other co worker who also lives at Surigao. Talk about cost cutting huh? 🙂 Continue reading

Vanishing Island at Surigao del Sur

While on the Enchanted River, one could also visit the Vanishing Island by renting a pump boat. The boat ride usually costs 160-200php for one hour. And the tour includes a visit to the Vanishing Island (Banising as mentioned by the bangkero), HInatuan Cave, Sibadan Fish Cage (‘Piskids’ as what kuya bangkero said), and the Tinago River.

Surigao also has its own version of a vanishing island, and though it’s quite small but it’s one of my favorites. I just love the bluish green and turquoise crystal clear water, the powdery sand, and the perfectly shaped clouds that floats from afar the time that we got there.  It just so happened that during our visit the weather was calm. Thank you Lord.
