While in the tour, the boatman will discuss some short history of the place and different species of mangroves. (GOSH Guys, they even know what are the scientific name of those plants and I was like ….”Seriously? You really memorized all of them Kuya? They are too difficult to pronounced, sounds like sprekitotik brobalik… But I am just kidding!)”hey were actually trained before they became a guide but almost all of them are fishermen which been their source of income since they were young. So they are a good swimmer! BRAVO!

The Group of Baetas, will sing Bisayan songs upon their guest arrivals.

MY FIRST EVER!
Going forward, the most amazing part is that we swam from the place where the end part of the river meets with the sea which really has a lot of corals. The management and municipality preserve it.  From there, we swam heading back to the shallow part. That was NO joke since it’s really deep. However, OF COURSE, we wore life jackets! How can we? 😂

Aloguinsan has the hallmark of perfect and FUNtastic restdays or might be a weekend getaway!

Our Travel:

The Matalungon to Aloguinsan was a real struggle for us since there were limited bus coming in especially that it was Sunday. We stood in the bus all through our travel. (Arf). Single motorcycle will cost P150.00 to Aloguinsan. Tiis Ganda!

You have to go to the Eco – farm first to register.
