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.
