CDO-Camiguin Tour

This is my first time traveling to Mindanao, and first stop would be in Cagayan de Oro. It was Piso Fare offer in Cebu Pacific that got us to travel to CDO, booked way back February of last year?? Together with all the surcharges and taxes, our fare just came down to almost Php 600 per person.  A few weeks before our trip, we were supposed to just hire a travel  agency to book everything for us, but the practical side of me took over and decided to try to book the tours and accommodations. Being so busy with work, I decided to just POAT on Pinoy Exchange Forum on CDO thread asking for itinerary. Luckily, Noel Greene responded to me. I'm not sure, but I think he is the owner, or co-owner, of Manage TravelTours in CDO. It's a little bit complicated as Noel resides in Ireland, while his brother-in-law resides here. They provide the transportation service/tour within CDO and to places nearby such as Bukidnon and to port going to Camiguin. Noel also booked me in Victoria Suite Hotel, a cheap hotel in CDO, and gave me contact to book our Camiguin Tour. They've also arrange our White Water Rafting and tour Dahilayan Park in Bukidnon.

Finally all was set and our day of departure finally came. We met up about an hour and a half before our flight leaves, since we were hungry, we decided to eat first. We felt relax that we just went to the boarding area about 40 minutes before our boarding. The crew told us to wait first as she was going to check if we can still be boarded. WTF? All of us were speechless for a moment there, and when the crew let us pass through, we were so relieved and found it hilarious at the same. We didn't know what to do if the plane left us. About 1 1/2 hour later, at almost 5 in the afternoon, we finally arrived at CDO.

Emero, Noel's brother-in-law, picked us up in the airport and drove us to Victoria Suite Hotel. The hotel was nice enough for sleeping and taking a bath, it's clean  but small. For just Php 900 for twin sharing, one can't expect a lot from it. Emero was kind enough to drove us around the area to see where we could hang out. Since it was late in the afternoon, we really don't have time to do anything much, so when we saw a cute small bakery, Missy Bon Bon, we decided to hang there to eat. It was a chic bakeshop, with different cakes and breads, plus gelatos and some other dishes. Must try is their Macaroons and Pistachio Gelato. Although, it's a little bit pricier than the other flavors, at Php 100 per scoop, it's the best pistachio gelato I have tasted so far. Continue reading here.

  1. Hi poshtraveller,

    Nice blog. We're also planning to go to CDO-Camiguin this October but we would like to include Bukidnon. Would you be able to provide me with the e-mail address of Manage Travel Tours perhaps? Please?


    1. Hi Patricia,

  2. Water fall is so beautiful if i got cheap flights to islamabad i must go in northern areas to visit satpara lake which is one of the beautiful lake in the world.

  3. Cagayan de Oro - Camiguin tour is really affordable. You can get a bus ride going to Balingoan, then from Baligoan to Camiguin, you can ride a Ferry. The transportation will only cost you six hundred pesos (Philippine Peso). That's Cagayan de Oro - Camiguin - Cagayan de Oro. SO on fare alone you can already get a huge savings. And when you're already in Camiguin if you want to stay in a Camiguin Resort that's also affordable, you don't have to worry because there are many resorts there that offer first class amenities at affordable prices. Or you can stay at Bahay Bakasyunan if you like.

  4. Pabua's Cottages can arrange your CDO/Camiguin tour. We can pick you up from the airport/port, arrange your lodging and tours around the island.
    All this for a very good rate.
