Enchanting Siquijor: 2 day Itinerary and Travel guide

June 2014

Me and two of my friens flew from Manila to Dumaguete. From Dumaguete we hired a tricycle going to the port where we took a ferry to Siquijor. After checking in at the hotel, we went sight seeing straight away.

We stayed at the beautiful Villa Marmarine.

We only have half day for sight seeing that day. We started by going to this view point where you can see the beautiful Siquijor island.

We went to a tourism office where we hired guides for Cantabon Caves. The cave was pretty challenging too but not as much as Sagada’s. Here are some photos:

What’s really cool about this cave is there are pools inside.

There’s even a shower too!

As far as I remember we spent 3-4 hours inside the cave. I’ve torn my leggings but meh, I love this cave!

Next morning, we went to the beach just in front of the Villa Marmarine.

I really enjoyed Salagdoong specially the small fishes you can see just in the shore. You can also jump on top of the cliff – if you know how to swim. I have never seen a lifeguard there though.

After chilling at Salagdoong and playing with the fishes, we went to St. Isidore Labradore Parish Church and Convent.

We checked in at another hotel called Coco Grove Hotel where we received a free room upgrade, yey! The whole resort is so big, you can get lost going to your room. Anyway, the only thing I hate here is that there is no wifi and not even a good mobile signal at the rooms. You have to walk and  connect to their wifi in the reception, which is such a hassle.

The next morning, we headed back to Dumaguete. It was a lovely trip which includes caving, beach bumming, and sight seeing! Truly a wonderful experience and another must see in the Philippines!
