#TeamSanchez Goes to Camaya Coast

 

Finally, road tripping with my cousins was off my bucket list. Last summer (June 2014) #TeamSanchez goes to Camaya Coast, located in Mariveles, Bataan.  At sinong may pasimuno, syempre ako! 🙂 I love spending time with my cousins. Though we lived in the same place at Aser Sanchez Compound, we rarely spend time together growing up. Buti pa nung mga bata kame, when life is just simple, we all have same schedule in class, and in the afternoon after we do our homework we can play. And this is one of those rare times we can travel together.

We avail this one day tour pass cost P800, including lunch and free use of bike and kayak from Metrodeal. We rented a van from Binan, Laguna to Camaya Coast, P7,000/van including toll fees and fuel. You may contact Doy, (0925) 8686180, I highly recommend.

We enjoyed the beach. It’s high tide so we’re not able to try kayak.

Honda Bay Photo Tricks

All Honda Bay boatmen were trained to this  photo tricks. I am really impressed of the talent creativity of this simple locals of Puerto Princesa. Filipinos are really talented. It’s not just the island who attracts tourists, but even the kindness, hospitality, passion and talent of Pinoys! I’m so proud to be Pinoy.

Heto na ang mga bonggang-bonggang camera tricks, na pilit man naming gayahin on our own, di namin keri…

Honda Bay: Cowrie Island Travel Diary

Image

Cowrie Island is the best part of our island hopping in Honda Bay. I’m glad that this is the last island of the tour and we can spend long time here. Oh well, define, pure white sand and blue-green crystal waters…

Image

I’m a beach person, so I was really in awe to be here! Feeling ko sirena talaga ang past life ko… Lumalakas at sayang-saya ako pag nakalublob ako sa beach o kahit natatanaw ko lang ang beach.Image

Image

Image

What I love about the island is these trees surrounded along the seashore. Syempre may shade effect, pwede kang mag-emote and mag-relax while enjoying the view of the sun, sea and sand… At least, hindi ka masyadong iitim. Walang ganitong puno sa Boracay or sa Bohol or kahit sa Malapascua. So here, you can just chill under this tree and enjoy the art of doing nothing. So my cousins and I, just chill and enjoy the blue waters…

Image

Another thing I love about Cowrie Island are the coconut trees, free cottages, affordable restaurant and outdoor body massage by the locals. This is really the best place to relax after a long day of island hopping, snorkeling and picture taking!ImageImage

Image

Tip:

You can avail the buffet lunch in this island and get a free entrance for only P300. They serve good food.

Definitely you get good value for your money!

The Bounty Beach of Malapascua Island

Cosmpolitan PH magazine’s Top 10 beaches in the Philippines. It’s a must visit for those who are into diving. The island is known for “Thresher Sharks” according to google you can only find it her. I haven’t seen one, and we didn’t dive when we went here.

Image

So since, I’m not a diver, I just love beach,  I don’t enjoy the place as much as I enjoy Boracay. Malapascua Island is isolated, there’s nothing much to do but to bum around (if you’re not diving). There’s few tourist, mostly Europeans, Americans and Koreans.

Image

If you’re looking for a serene and tranquil place, well this place is for you!

Image

Image

And this is my favorite photo: Local kids playing at the beach!

Boracay never fails!

it’s my 3rd time in Boracay and the island never fails to amaze me! although the main purpose of our visit in Bora is to witness the wedding of our friend cai & nowell… We dont miss the opportunity to enjoy the island in the most tipid way we can..09092010084

We got super cheap plane fare mla-caticlan from airphil at P1,048 and kalibo-mla from PAL at P1,050. Check out weekly airline promos and mignight sale. Just be sure to book online once there’s available flight or else… Transfers from caticlan airport which includes tricycle (airport terminal to port) + boat ride + environmental fee + terminal fee + tricycle from port to our hotel at station 1 cost P220, (and if you’re be arriving or departing from kalibo just add P200-250 for van fare).

Day 1 Bowra-21

We stayed at MR Holidays P750/night with free set breakfast. We stayed at their family room, the room is cozy, clean, and the staff are super friendly. i highly recommend this budget friendly hotel. (although not located at the beachfront).

Day 1 Bowra-06

We had our lunch and dinner at Jonas (P100 up), Big Momma’s (P50 up), Andoks (P50 up), Talipapa (paluto) (P200 up), Manana (P200 up), Boracay Sweet Dreams (P300 up)… but the most sulit is Big Momma’s & paluto at Talipapa!

Day 1 Bowra-16

i also tried Hydo Zorb for P350… we had so much fun, its a must try in Boracay…

Day 3 Zorb-22

Day 1 Bowra-03

Punta Fuego Road Trip Diary

 Monsanto goes to Club Punta Fuego, in Nasugbu, Batangas for 2008 family outing. It was a great break getaway from the usual workdays spent in the office. A change of scene, nothing as wonderful as the sun, sky and sand in one of the Philippines beaches.
