Total: Php 8641 for 2 persons (no meals yet)

Note: All prices are for 2 persons already. I only included the NECESSARY expenses. If you've noticed, I left the food budget blank because me and The BF tend to splurge on food. :)

Some suggestions:

  1. Hiking Mt.Tapyas is a must. And it really is much better to do it before 5pm so you can be on time for the sunset and take marvelous pictures of the town. You may also ask the locals when they would light the cross atop Mt.Tapyas and schedule your hike then since this sight is also trully picturesque.
  2. I believe the Mt.Tapyas+Maquinit Hotspring activities are made to be done at the same day, then the island-hopping is on a different day. I swear your legs would turn to jello after hiking that 747 steps and the super hot Maquinit spring would definitely soothe your body.
  3. You may skip the Vivian Beach part (especially since it doesn't really offer that much) if you want to save Php150 because you may eat lunch at Banol Beach and then stay there for 2 more hours to chill/swim/cuddle. :)

  1. wow. pretty detailed. :) mahal talaga mag-coron for two people. i think for groups talaga sya so expect to spend more if there's only the two of you going. good thing you found some really nice people there to give you a good price.
