Discouraging plans for Surigao

Originally planned as to visit the Philippine's Niagara Falls and Enchanted River after watching GMA's Born To be Wild show featuring the beautiful Enchanted River in Surigao. Thanks to Cebu Pacific's piso fare last September 2012, I got James and I round trip tickets for Mactan-Surigao City on February 1-4 this year. We are both excited as this will be our first domestic travel for this year 2013. But we realized we missed one thing with this specific trip - research. I blamed myself because I booked the ticket without even checking which airport best routes us to Surigao del Sur.

By January first week, I started looking for some travel guide for Tinuy-an falls and the river yet I found out that for us to arrive there, we need to travel eight long hours first. I was devastated since this was not what we expected it to be. Though I love travelling, I don't have the patience to travel that long specially on this unknown place. I had read some posts about some unfortunate events on the road while travelling for Butuan.
Actually, for us to get to Bislig Surigao delsur where tinuy-an falls is, we have to travel from Surigao Del Norte to Butuan which is about three hours. From Butuan, we have to take another five hour trip via van or bus to Surigao del Sur then take a habal-habal to get to the Enchanted river as well as to Tinuy-an falls. I lost energy thinking about doing this research and my deep want to see this natural beauty personally has turned into a dissappointment.

I am now considering cancelling this entire trip but hopefully, I will find the reasons to go on. Aja!

Pin It!
