Caramoan Peninsula: Final Tour - Day 3

November 29, 2013



It's our last day in Caramoan so we made the most out of it by shopping for souvenirs. After breakfast, we headed straight to four souvenir shops just two blocks away from Rex Tourist Inn. I suggest everyone to add "Santan" spread to your shopping list! It's a Coconut Jam with Pili nuts. Sweetened Pili nuts are among Bicol region's specialties. 

St. Michael the Archangel Parish Church

For our last day in Caramoan, we went to our final destination/tourist attraction, which is the 15th Century old cathedral and the only Catholic Church in the town of Caramoan, Camarines Sur. Its red bricks give a magnificent impression and attract anyone who can see. It’s amazing that the Church still stands and looks in a good condition inside and out.

After a few glances and photo-taking, we hurriedly get back to the tricycle to head to Guijalo Port. Since it is Sunday, many tourists are expected to leave the town at the same time to catch the early trips as possible and to avoid being stranded at the port.

CARAMOAN: The Gem of Camarines Sur

We enjoyed island hopping and sight-seeing for 3 days and it was the best beach trip we had. I am truly smitten by its beauty and promised myself to return (next time, I'll travel via airplane to Naga for convenience).  Though it was tiring and the sun is scorching hot, we’re glad that our entire trip was safe and it’s not raining, given that we visited the place on May, which is the start of the rainy season.

As soon as we arrived at Naga terminal bus to get back to Manila, the rain started to pour heavily.

The enchanting view of limestone town is enough to destress somebody’s toxic mind. I can really say that Caramoan Peninsula is the Coron and El Nido of Camarines Sur.

Foreign travelers were amazed on how beautiful Caramoan Peninsula is, and it continues to attract more visitors as its tourism is growing. On our conversation to a Koh Lanta (hotel) receptionist, a Survivor series ultimate castaway winner, stayed in Caramoan for 6 months because he fell in love with the place’s magnificence and tranquility. No wonder why you should visit this paradise on your next trip. J
