Dear Couchsurfers: How To Reach My Place - Complete Instruction

Dear Couchsurfer/s,

This is for you.

Upon going to my place unassisted, please follow these instructions.

From Tagbilaran City port or airport:
Take a tricycle from the port/airport to downtown Tagbilaran to City Square, B. Inting St. Terminal IF before 5:30pm. Regular fare rate at the port is Php15.00 per person as a joiner (capacity of tricycle is 3)

Warning though: Many tricycle drivers will ask for more (scammers/they will rip you off)
So make sure that you ask first before you hop unto the tricycle.

If you are coming from the port and you are not amenable with the rate that he is giving you, then walk a little bit up to Gallares St., from there, hail a tricycle for the same rate Php15.00 and go to the location of terminal, see below reference.

If you are coming from the airport and you are not amenable with the rate that he is giving you, then try to negotiate, or if you can wait, befriend other travelers going to downtown Tagbilaran and join them, that can mean cheaper ride. Check…

The Buzzling Town That Is Jagna

While growing up, the town of Jagna was famous for, well, being the pier that my family has to go to during the times that we need to travel to Nasipit. My mother is from Agusan del Norte, and many times, we have visited Mindanao via Jagna to Nasipit route through  a ferry.

However, many improvements has been going on in Jagna. This has become a town of so many activities from Commerce/Retail and even Tourism.

I tried visiting the place and this is what I saw.

The Can-uba Marble Beach at Brgy. Can-uba, Jagna. Cottage rental is at Php50.00

This place is actually fun to visit, because there is a certain area where someone can take a picture at the top of one of the rock formation with a decent stairway to climb to pick the best spot. 

Someone has to explore more to see this part of Can-uba,  this is like a hidden cave-like place where there are certain cliff-like rocky spots where locals dive from to the greenish water. 

The village of Can-uba is just close to the main town of Jagna. 

This is …

Fooled By The Pool

Many times, I cannot count anymore, I have traveled to the northeastern part of Bohol and many towns due to my work and for this, have been noticing this pool-like place near Poblacion, Baclayon.

To my surprise, this place is not just an ordinary place but actually a SPRING. Oh well, I never thought of this to be such until I found out from many locals who are really coming from this place that this is indeed a Spring. However during high tide, the seawater can mix into this Spring thus creates a salty taste on the water. Even if I'm not so fond of spending a day in a shallow spring for a swim, I give it a try for my niece so she can practice her swimming prowess ;) Not just swimming, but even her attempt at jumping and diving too :)

When finding a good spot, it is also a place to capture quiet moments and daily lives of fishing, as observed through this small boat.

From where I was sitting, I can even see the snails almost playing with the small crabs. Simple moments like this is su…
