TRIP NOTES

1.Mobile Signal: 4G if you are around the baywalk while 3G/H+ in Santiago Bay.
2.Motorbike fare may cost you P50/way.
3.Always prepare for entrance fees- P50 to P100.
4.Always bring your gadgets and accessories, don’t forget the extra batteries and power banks. You might stay a lil longer beside the beach and might miss to take photos.
5.Don’t forget to bring your hammock or beach blanket.
6.One thing that may spoil your Camotes trip is, when you don’t know if you can get a ticket or not. At the port, in Danao, you aren’t sure if the boat could still accommodate you. Jomalia’s priority are those who have cars and worse, they will accommodate fixers. From P180, fixers can give the ticket to you at the price of P300. So better be early- and be very wise.
7.Enjoy CAMOTES ISLANDS!
