Cebu – Tagbilaran – Panglao // Travel date: July 25-26, 2015
Sometime in 2015, one of our consultants from the US went to the Philippines and he spent almost 3 weeks in Cebu. Every weekend he spent time with the team… here are just one of the weekends where we had an amazing race in Bohol.
Naph already arranged the accommodation and the van for our tour, the first day is the countryside tour, and on the second day is and island hopping. We had taken the first trip from Cebu City to Bohol. Here’s our 2-day itinerary in Bohol.
Day 1: Countryside Day Tour /Heritage Tour
This itinerary is already curated once you rented a van in Bohol. There are rentals that they will just ask you for the van rental while the others, will already include your tour package.
- Sandugo Site – The Sandugo was a blood compact, performed in the island of Bohol in the Philippines, between the Spanish explorer Miguel López de Legazpi and Datu Sikatuna the chieftain of Bohol on March 16, 1565, to seal their friendship as part of the tribal tradition. This is considered as the first treaty of friendship between the Spaniards and Filipinos. “Sandugo” is a Visayan word which means “one blood”. – Wiki

Day 2: Island Hopping (Balicasag Island & Isola de Francisco – Virgin Island)
You have to rent a boat, snorkeling gear, and an entrance of P250/head. Your pay is worth it especially when you love seeing these sea creatures. We surely love Balicasag Island and would love to go back.
After our Balicasag Island, we proceeded to Isola de Francisco, the Pontod Island, formerly called the Virgin Island. It has a long sand bar where we actually enjoyed and spent the rest of our hours before ending our island hopping tour. The owner seemed to be a devoted Catholic since from afar you already see a big gold status of San Francisco.
