I’m planning a trip to Caramoan Islands this summer of 2014 in our home province of Camarines Sur. It’s only about two hours from my home town, but I never managed to visit Caramoan Peninsula.
Caramoan is one of the famous destinations in Bicol region because of its breath-taking white sand beaches like in Boracay and rock formations like in Palawan. It’s also quite famous in the international community, largely due to the reality TV show Survivor having filmed there, such as Survivor Italy, Bulgaria, Israel, France, Serbia, Sweden and USA.
I was searching online for travel guide on how to get there, things to do, where to stay, estimated budget and some details that will help me plan my Caramoan 3 days and 2 nights itinerary. I suddenly came across into this website and saw the itinerary posted on their site:
