Visiting Bolinao is really an experience one should have. It is always okey to get some time off out of your busy life.

Plannig: Here's our sample Itinerary that would help you plan your vacation and budget before heading on your vacation.

The Travel

Travel time from Manila to Bolinao is 5 hrs, but on our case we were'nt able to catch the first trip of Five Star Bus in Pasay that leaves 12MN.

So we decided to have a cutting trip, because the next trip is scheduled 7:30 AM. So we went to Dagupan Bus line and ride on the 2AM trip going to Dagupan. We arrived in Dagupan at around 7AM and decided to have breakfast before heading our way to Alaminos which is 2 hrs from Dagupan. It was a long and tiring trip but it's worth the travel , with the scenery that you'll pass by and whta I love most are the fishponds and the talaba vendors ( lots of talaba!) yummy. In Alaminos we have to transfer to another bus going to Bolinao another 2 hrs road trip.and finally at around 11:20 AM we arrived in Bolinao and we texted our Tour guide and service Mang Roki, he fetch us in front of five Star Bus station. And by the way make sure to have a bottled water with you ALWAYS when you travel so you could have it refilled for only 5 pesos, in front of Five Star Bus line there's a carinderia and you can ask them to refill your bottled water ( nice people).

The Resort

Rock Garden resort thanks to Ms Kim and Ching they made our stay at the resort fun and comfortable.

travelling time
We arrive in the hotel at 11:30 and they let us check our room as soon as we arrived , they might have seen on our faces how tired we were on our long travel.

1st Stop

We headed on our tour at around 1PM. First stop is the "Enchanted Cave" some scenes of Dyesebel were taken here. Entrance fee is 30 and 40 if you're going to swim. Enchanted cave is a private property so you can imagine how lucky they are to have that cave in their backyard and with all the people going in and out the cave one can obviously calculate how much money they are getting from our Mother natures natural resources..;) There's an underground passage leading inside the cave (46 steps stairway). inside the cave - what to expect inside ,mainly is d lagoon, water is clear, cold, stalactytes and stalagmites.Its a bit dark inside but there are spotlights.stalactytes - warning ! they are not supposed to be touched as humans acidity affects the stalactytes growth sabi nila hehehethe lagoon - we were'nt able to swim as there are lots of people by that timeclear water.

Lighthouse
Lunch time- You can order food at Encahnted cave and they have lots of cottages where u can relax or have something to eat,no cottage rental just the food.Food are good they serve inihaw and sinigang and their specialty is the parot fish and d sinigang na danggit. for 2 viands, 5 rice and 3 drinks you get to pay 480 pesos only plus a nice view that surrounds you, what else to ask for ...

2nd Stop

the Cape Bolinao's Light house. we got here around 230Pm and its really hot, they say it would be best to go here during the sun set..
