CAPTIVATING CATANDUANES - Intro
A two-day trip to Catanduanes is enough to visit most of the island’s beautiful spots. However, since the province is one of the most frequently hit by typhoons, always prepare for the unexpected – prolonged stay due to cancellation of flights, rain even during summer, or simply be enchanted of its beauty that you would want to extend your vacation to visit more of the island’s attractions.
Airfare to Virac via Cebu Pacific is an all-time cheap (as low as P888 one way). It usually takes 45 minutes to one hour to get you from Manila to Virac. Make sure to take a window seat to get a glimpse of the island’s lush greenery from above before the plane lands.
Gettting around Virac is very convenient. Tricycles will take to and around the town proper for only P7.
Accomodation is also not a problem. Virac has quite a list of hotels and inns depending on your preferences and budget. Catanduanes Midtown Inn, located right in the town proper, costs P1,200.00 for twin sharing – WIFI available. While a twin-sharing guest room at the Twin Rock Resort costs P1,500.00, along the beach and with a serene view of the ocean.
