Itinerary & Expenses for Catanduanes & Camarines Sur Trip

Catanduanes is slowly gaining popularity for both local and foreign tourists. But few flights, partially paved roads, and unpredictable weather still make Catanduanes a hidden gem with plenty of pristine and unspoilt beaches.

Catanduanes has affordable food but very few choices when it comes to accommodations and it is quite difficult to get to some of the attractions.


My friend and I included Caramoan in our trip to Catanduanes, I've read that it was easier to get to Caramoan via Catanduanes that is why we took that route. If you don't include Caramoan in your trip, you'll spend less.

We spent a lot on transportation because getting to some of the beaches in Catanduanes require special trips. Even if you take public transport to the next town, you'll still need to hire a tricycle for the special trip to a certain beach or area. Public transport is also rare, that is why it is better to rent a tricycle for a day to avoid hassles, but it still depends on your itinerary there are places that are accessible to public transport. The rate for renting a whole tricycle one-way is P150, but if you wait for other passengers it is normally around P20 to P25 if you are going to the next town or village.

Food is cheap, even if you eat at restaurants especially if you are in groups. You could read about food and places to eat in Virac here.


Too bad I was unable to visit the famous Baras Surf Beach up north. I wanted to hit two birds with one stone in this trip that is why I included Caramoan in the trip.
