Arrival in Benoni, Camiguin

Since we arrived late and we don’t have any reservation for accommodation, we hire a Habal-habal/ Single motorcycle with driver and head toward Mambajao. For P100/pax (P200 for us) we asked to see the Enigmata since based on our research a backpacker room cost only P300/pax.

Kuya Dodong (Habal-habal driver) – 0926 8681318

Enigmata is beautiful and very relaxing; the theme is tree houses, mosquito net and in line with the nature. But we opt for a more private room without costing us too much in compare to their available room worth P1, 050.

The driver suggested Camiguin White Island Beach Resort and offer us some discount since he mentioned that he is a friend of the owner. From Enigmata we went to CWIBR to see the rooms.

  1. yay! this is the post that i’ve been looking for. πŸ™‚ will be going there sa nov po, just wanted to ask if we can still catch the last boat from Balingoan? 1PM kasi arival namin sa butuan.

    • If you go directly to Balingoan with 3 hours travel time, sure you can catch-up with 4:30pm ferry going to Benoni Pier. and I think there is trip by Super shuttle Ferry leaving Balingoan by 5:30pm.

      Enjoy your trip =)
