chocolate hills

oh, this trip was really fun! 4 months ago, we went to bohol (i couldnt remember which dates exactly). we stayed there for 4 days/3 nights... =) of course, we booked for a fight to tagbilaran via cebu pacific which cost around 3k (roundtrip) and also booked our accomodation beforehand.   we decided to stay in paragayo resort in alona beach because its cheap and my friends recommended the place.  we arranged for car to pick us up at the airport which is about 45 mins. away from panglao.  as soon as we got there, we went straight to for the tour (saving 500 pesos)... you can arrange it to the hotel. we went to see the chocolate hills, had an awesome lunch while cruising the green loboc river, went to see the famous tarsiers, visited the baclayon church (2nd oldest church in the philippines), went to the "sanduguan" site (historic blood compact), hanging bridge, etc.

  at the end of the day, we were all exhausted so drove back to the hotel.  in the afternoon, went to the beach which is about 10 mins walk from the hotel... just sat there watching the sun set.  while having a nice walk on the seashore, people will come ask you if you would like to hire "banca" for dolphin watching and island hopping.  and so the next day, we woke up very early and very excited.  we saw some dolphins and afterwards island hopping!!! such are balicasag and virgin islands... sooo beautiful! in balicasag island, we hired a little banca to take us to the coral reefs to snorkle... we saw varieties of fish like clown fish, etc. again as the sun sets, were at alona beach- had nice dinner and drinks over there.  the third day, we spent it at alona beach... had nice massage along the beach (200 pesos)... we also snorkled in alona and saw beautiful fish, we even took 1 clown fish and several colorful starfish and sea urchin, as well =) that day was just perfect! the 4th day of course, we needed to check out and catch our flight back to manila =) it was an awesome trip!!!!
