Bohol Travel Series | Planning a Trip to Bohol

 To jumpstart my travel fancies for the year 2012, I decided to go to Bohol. It was supposedly a relaxing vacation for me but it became a field trip with my high school friends.

Last December 2011, we were able to book round trip tickets to Bohol for only 1,2++ pesos for our 3days/2nights trip on February 10-12, 2012. But since I booked ahead of them, I was able to get the later flight home while they all got the morning flight. So I'll fly out of Bohol alone.

We availed the countryside tour offered by Kuya Tatsky and his drivers. A lot of Girltalkers recommend them so I decided to get their services. We were 5 so we won't be able to fit in a car. I think we'll be using the Innova. He quoted 2,200 pesos. It was really affordable. Talking with Kuya Tatsky was a breeze. I don't expect him to drive us since he's quite in demand. Anyone who's funny and kind is fine!

Originally, I wanted to stay in a resort located along Bolod beach, particularly Dumaluan Beach Resort 2. But since my friends want to hang-out in bars, I was advised to book a resort in Alona beach because that's where night life is. So friends, if you want peace and quiet, book a resort in Bolod. If you want crowd and booze, go to Alona beach.

Since there are a lot of resorts in Alona beach, I asked the help of Ms. Kathy, the wife of Kuya Tatsky in finding a nice resort for us. It was quite difficult finding a resort that's both nice and cheap. Yeah, "nice" and "cheap" don't usually go well together. But I was lucky she was able to find us one. She booked us at Lost Horizon Resort. It was a beachfront resort with a small pool. We were able to avail the rate of 2,995 pesos, good for 5 pax. I was actually surprised because the price is different from their published rate in their website.

Anyway, I'll update you guys about out trip. Happy reading!
