    My friends and i had our 3 days and 2 nights vacation in Cebu and Bohol last MARCH 2009. We took a flight from Manila to Cebu of Thursday evening via Cebu Pacific Airlines, (It was a promo ticket we bought last October 2008). As we arrived in Cebu, we check in in Sugbutel (gosh, the place is clean but a terrible kind of accommodation, since the place seems like a hospital ward… urg… we had hard time sleeping, though we got the room since its so cheap and we dont need a luxurious hotel since we are to depart early morning of the next day going to Bohol). Early morning of Friday, around 4:30 am, we started preparing to go to Bohol via Oceanjet in Pier 1. We depart Pier 1 at 7:00 and be able to arrive in Tagbilaran Port at exactly quarter to 9. KUYA RANIL (the best tourist guide i could say) was waiting for us in the PIER with his very elegant white NISSAN. We go around Tagbilaran, Carmen and etc the whole Friday. i already contacted KUYA RANIL when my friends and i were still in Manila, i contacted so many tourist guide but only KUYA RANIL offered the most affordable tour package with lots (12 spots) of tourist spot destination like; 1)Marcela Supermart where i bought the kisses pasalubong at very reasonable price (we took breakfast an bought needed things), 2)Man Made Forest(this is amazing), 3)Chocolate Hills (this is magnificent), 4)Butterfly Sanctuary, 5)Hanging Bridge, 6)Loboc Floating Restaurant(eat well), 7)Tarsier Sanctuary (we really had fun here), 8)Bohol Python (we didn’t enjoy here), 9)Baclayon Church (Second Oldest Church in the Philippines),10)Blood Compact Site (new), 11)Hinagdanan Cave (we learned about basic digital photography here), 12)Dumaluan Beach Resort (we spent overnight in one kubo here). The Tour cost 1,800 pesos only unlike in other tourist guide who are offering it for 2,500. This package is good for 4 persons only. If you are looking for a TOUR GUIDE in BOHOL for very affordable price but really GOOD SERVICE, just text KUYA RANIL at 09193443365….. Kuya Ranil also helped us to find a resort which is the Dumaluan Beach resort wherein the sand is pinkish and very white. We rented a KUBO worth 1000 only and we slept there (Friday Night). Early morning of Saturday, we swam in Dumaluan Beach Resort, had some picture taking near the Panglao BEach Resort which is just nearby our resort. at 8 am, Kuya Ranil fetched us in Dumaluan to drop us at Tagbilaran Port because we are going back to Cebu to have city tour of Cebu. I love Bohol, God wondrously created this magnificent place, next time we will go back here and go to Balicasag Island (we were not able to go there cause of limited time). at 9:30 am we were boarding in Oceanjet, at 11am we reached Cebu and check in in SOgo Hotel (cheap but we really sive room dont need an expensive room since we are always out for sight seeing… We visited e; SM Cebu, Lapu-Lapu’s Monument and Magellan’s Landmark, Taoist Temple, Magellan’s Cross and Taboan Market (we bought dried fish here). Cebu is like Manila… nothing extraordinary i could say, hehehehe… we ate our dinner in Gaisano Mall where we had a bad experience in one of the restaurants in the food court (an ice tea with additional flavor of Chroachy, eeeeewwwwwwwwwweeeeeeeeee, cocroach), but one thing we enjoyed is the GIANT SANDUGO SANDALS as tall as me… hehehe… early morning of sunday, around 1:30 am we started preparing for our Cebu Pacific Air flight at 4:45 am bound to MAnila… MIND YOU, AS WE MADE A COMPUTATION OF OUR TOTAL EXPENSES AFTER THE TOUR, we found out that we spent an average of 4500 pesos only (pasalubong included) so cheap. The airfare is 1000 pesos roundtrip becuase of ALL IN promo of Cebu PAcific, so a total of 5500. REALLY WORTH IT…
    Forever in my mind; Bohol’s magnificent Chocolate Hills, Tarsiers are actually so cute, and KUYA RANIL who have been so transparent, so kind and so helpful to us… choose KUYA RANIL and you will find BOHOL as magnificent as KUYA RANIL…. babalik ako don next year to visit BALICASAG ISLAND and of course i will hire the service of KUYA RANIL again… so what are you waiting for visit Bohol, discover Philippines and text KUYA RANIL at 09193443365 so you enjoy Bohol even with tight budget….

    If you are going up to Choco hills, one more great place to stop and visit is SIMPLY BUTTERFLIES CONSERVATION CENTER in POB BILAR. With good access just 20m off the highway in Poblacion Bilar, you will see all the color flags along the highway.
    Every group gets a free tour guide to explain all about the butterflies, the guides are really informative and funny.
    They have many butterflies inside a large wall-in enclosure and also nice open gardens where over 100 species of butterflies come to visit naturally! Including the biggest butterfly in the Philippines. This is a great place for the family, and there is a picnic area where you can bring your own food and watch the butterflies flying free in the open garden. The food in the restaurant is also very good, and affordable and they have nice cakes too.
    You must also try their home made ice cream – it is amazing!
    Simply Butterflies Conservation Center is the best butterfly garden I have ever been to in the Philippines:-)
