Cagayan de Oro-Camiguin, Philippines Tour: Day 1

Cagayan de Oro - Camiguin Tour Day 1

We ( me and my girlfriend) called a taxi directory service to fetch us from Quezon City and bring us to NAIA Terminal 3 around 2 am. To our surprise, the driver did not turn on his cab's meter and told us he will be charging a fix rate of 500 php. We therefore complained and asserted that that was not the case. Reluctantly, he obliged and we were charged 225 Php only.

No wonder we are early by 2 hours and use the time to take pictures. Then we checked in our baggage, some waiting at the boarding lounge and off we go on Cebu Pacific flight 5J 381.

We arrived at Lumbia, Cagayan de Oro Airport passed 6 am.

As expected, the taxis on the outside are offering contractual rates. The guard said 250 Php is minimum. So, we decided to walk further outside the airport and just take a jeepney to downtown CDO. Fortunately, we found a taxi that agreed on meter rate and only cost us 120 Php.

We then reached Grand City Hotel, where we reserved in advance for 1080 Php. After checking in, we had some breakfast and took a nap to wait for our Cagayan De Oro River whitewater rafting adventure.
