Bolinao Itinerary & List of Expenses

Related Searches:

Doing a two-day tour in Bolinao is already enough, especially when you start it at early morning (like 7 AM). You will have a chance to see more (like Enchanted Cave or Cindy’s Cave, and Patar rock formatons) or enjoy more of the beach or the falls. As in our case, we arrived at late lunch time, and thus we have only visited Bolinao Lighthouse and Patar Beach (with its golden sunset) in the afternoon. Then we visited the other tourist spots the next day.

If you also plan to do a two-day itinerary tour in Bolinao, you may want to follow what we did. But you can always fully customize it—if you are the more adventurous and want to pack more activities, go ahead. If you are the touristy type who wants enjoy more of the beach and the falls rather than having a goal to see all of the tourist spots, then minimize your activities. This Bolinao tour itinerary for two days is just a mere suggestion.

    1. Hello. I don't think I still have their phone numbers. However, there are many trike drivers there. You just need your power to negotiate/haggle. :)

    2. Had a convo with a trike drivers yesterday po via text. 1300 is the lowest po sa kanilang lahat. Hehe. Ano pong activities sa Balingasay River?

    3. We did not do any tour in Balingasay River but as far as I know, boating lang sya (or kayaking depende sa gagamitin). Balingasay River I think is the cleanest river in Luzon.

  2. Hi! Meron pa po ba kayong contact number sa Holyland Resort? :)
