Two days after I arrive from my 5-day CDO-Bukidnon-Iligan-Camiguin trip, I found myself again in Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This time, I’m Tagbilaran-bound with my whole family as my travel buddies.
Because I was with my family, I skipped commuting and opted to hire a van to explore Bohol – touristy but more comfortable for my parents and my 3-yr old nephew. I also took a break in searching for the most decent budget accommodation and reserved rooms in Dumaluan Beach Resort.
Bohol houses waterfalls, caves, unusual geological formations, endemic species, stretches of white sand, rich marine life, century-old churches, good food and the list goes on…. A long list to support its nickname, “God’s Little Paradise”.
I contacted Kuya Tatsky for our 2-day land tour in Bohol. His contact numbers are all over the internet and he is quick to answer my queries so I immediately agreed with his services. Here are his contact information:
