Upon arrival, I took off my shoes. I had to wear it for a few hours and it was really uncomfortable when it’s all muddy and wet. Good thing, I wore my “plastic” socks. Haha.
Anyway, the room did not have a television, but it has a nice table where we put our things, a spacious cabinet and enough space for our shoes and laundry. The room we booked has 3 beds. 1 is a double deck and the other one is a single bed.
We wanted to take some rest but we had to move. We went to the Municipal Tourist Center. It only cost us 35 Philippine pesos for the environmental fee. And all we had to do was bring the receipt at all sites. It is a must to get a tour guide when going to the tourist spots. At first, I did not like that, but I realized that it helps the tourism industry and the locals to be involved in it.
The good thing about Isabelo’s Inn is that it is at the center of everything. It literally just in front of the municipal center, it is beside the fresh fruits being sold, we have access to ATM and the transportation service can just pick us up nearby.
We took a little bit of rest then we started exploring the area. We went to the hanging coffins. Initially, we did not want to be assisted by a tour guide. But it was a requirement.
For 200 Philippines pesos, we were guided by a nice man who kindly toured as around the area. And I have to admit, it may be easy to get to the place on our own, but these guides grew up in this place and there’s no better way to go to different areas but with their kind help. We also get to know something about their way of life.
We then went to dinner called the Yogurt House. We chose a spot upstairs, where we gladly waited for a nice meal. 🙂
We then ended the evening with a little chit chat and plans about the next day while enjoying a bottle of beer.
