Hey everyone thanks for stopping in!
My WIFE and I are 27 y/o and we both love new experiences and adventure. We are both quite active & enjoy swimming, hikes, bicycling. We love to socialize, dance, & party – however we are more-so willing to get a decent good sleep to ensure we can catch an earlier bus to adventure more the next day.
We LOVED our Thailand/Cambodia/Vietnam trip and are looking for something equally as exciting. We have never been to the Philippines. We are planning on flying between most destinations to save time and staying in luxury/premium establishments. (We backpacked on our last S.E.A. trip at ~$15/pp/night, but we are willing to spend a little more as it is our honeymoon)
Toronto, Canada -> Cebu City, Philippines|| 16 Days || March/April 2019
We are thinking of flying into Mactan-Cebu City as we are not interested in Manila. This would save us time getting in/out of the country as Mactan-Cebu City airport is closer to the islands we wish to visit. I feel pretty good about this trip and could probably just book my own itinerary, however I'd LOVE to hear some input from someone who has been there as I do feel quite lost!
I need help deciding how many days to stay in each location & which route to take. Trying to not waste time backtracking. I will list our ideal locations to see in the Philippines below. Where am I missing?!
Oslob – stay and rent a scooter?
Whale Sharks – 6am?
What else do you do while staying in Oslob?
Moalbal – stay and rent a scooter?
Kawasan falls / badian canyoneering
what other local waterfalls are worth checking out?
Alona Beach – stay and rent a scooter?
Rivers & River Tours
Where to stay? Rent a little jeep?
Salagdoong Beach – big jump /w beautiful water
El Nido – stay on beachfront/overwater bungalow?
Motorbike to Nacpan beach
Tarraw Cliff – need a guide
Where do you stay to get to Manjuyod sand bar?
Would you see both Coron and El Nido?
Is Bantayan Island worth it?
Thanks for all your help!
