2012 DIY Guide to Calaguas Island

We started with no clear plans going to Calaguas(Previous post)yet it was successful. Thanks to my mga sikat na inspiration blogger fellows that helped me a lot through their blogs to create a guide in going there. Thanks mga idols!

Special thanks to Lakwatsero.com and lakwatseradeprimera for the details of the trip and to packupanddrift and of course kay Chyng of chyngreyes.com for the inspiration to visit the place soon dahil sa tempting post nyo.



Expenses Breakdown:

Manila To Calaguas
= P730 Manila to Talobatib (Philtranco in Pasay)
= P25 Talobatib to Paracale port
= P550 Boat rental divided by 6 pax (P3300)
= P165 Food supplies divided by 6 pax (P990)
= P95 Camping Fee (75) plus Barangay Fee (20)
Calaguas to Manila
= P25 Paracale port to Talobatib
= P30 Talobatib to Daet
= P480 Daet to Alabang (Superlines)
= *P300 Estimate other expenses (food water,trike,etc..)
Total = P2400

Absolutely Not Bad for a Virgin Island!

We chose the Paracale route as it was cheaper compare to Vinzons which is the more popular route.
We also left the Island at noon so we are too early to wait for Air-con bus from Talobatib. Since we didn’t contact any bus line to fetch us; we decided to go to Daet and had the Superlines trip going to Cubao with Alabang drop off for a sure seat and an earlier departure.

Going to Calaguas can be tiring and difficult to some if you’ll travel by land but then if you are ok with long night trip like me then it’s not a problem. No need to worry as water and rest rooms are available in the island. Riding public boat can be an option for a cheaper fare but with no definite schedule.

There are also some travel organizers online that you can check if you prefer less hassle in organizing and preparing for the trip. They will take in charge of your tents, lights at night, food and etc but for sure for an extra cost.

Expect big waves and long boat ride but all worth the risk and wait.





Once you have traveled, the voyage never ends, but is played out over and over again in the quietest chambers... the mind can never break off from the journey.

JL said...

wow ang mura pala pag nag DIY. great post! :)

tanong lang po maam/sir sa pabalik ng manila, yung mga bus po ba from daet to manila 24/7 or may oras lang? tapos paano po yung may cocontakin na bus para sunduin nalang from talobatib instead of pupunta pa ng daet?

and could i ask for contact numbers po ng boatman?

thank you so much! :)

Untied Escape said...

@ JL - May oras lang po, better check yun sa mga bus lines po na nag o-offer ng byahe, you can call them para mag pasundo (Superlines or Philtranco):)
Wala na kami contact sa boatman, marami naman dun na you can ask directly... Highly recommended si Kuya Nelson, 0920-3179315, apparently may guest na siya nung tumawag kami since di namin siya ni contact in advance.
