3D/2N Caramoan - Catanduanes Itinerary

docked in Matukad Island

The Majestic Wave, Puraran Beach Resort, Baras, Catanduanes

It's a Bonifacio non-working holiday on a friday - a call for long haul travels.

More than a month ago, I got an invite from an online friend for Pollilo island. But, just 2 weeks after I hit the "going" button on his fb event invite, since I am very very eager about completing my 80-province goal, I thought I could skip Pollilo for the meantime; Besides, I've been in and out of Quezon more than frequently.

I was supposed to exchange the Pollilo trip for Lubang island Mindoro; But just when I thought everything's ok, 2 nights before the trip, I have been told that there is no trip going to the island on that friday.

Without much research, I had thought about Caramoan; And when I looked in the map, it is quite close to Catanduanes, which we can probably fit for this 3 day trip.
