Camotes Island is located near the island of Cebu. 3 hours of travel from the airport. The boat trips going to the island are very limited, so we immediately left Mactan-Cebu International Airport to go to Danao Port. The port is around 40-minute taxi ride and it cost us P500! We took the RJR pump boat for P180 along with the locals, plus a P5 terminal fee. **I don’t advice this to sensitive people, the benches are narrow, I saw 4 people vomiting, and it’s hard to rest. Haha.** The boat was scheduled to leave at 11:00am, but we left at 11:20. Finally after 2 hours, we arrived at Consuelo Port! We were literally greeted by the locals there! We taught they were waiting for something, but they were waiting for us, the passengers. It was hard to get pass through them! Imagine a stampede! They were offering a P20 for “motor” ride, and P50 each for jeep. The P20 is for riding on the back of a single motorbike! Haha. Good thing we chose the jeep ;) We stayed in Santiago Bay, 15-20 minutes away from the port. And we lingered there until our 3rd day! Talk about being beach bums! So here’s a photo dump of what happened:

This trip was fun and relaxing! There’s so much to see, and more islands to discover here in the Philippines!
