Re-discovering Quezon

I’m close to Quezon Province but I didn’t know that they have a lot of beautiful undiscovered and untouched beaches to offer. Well I’m familiar with their heritage, their festivals, been thrice to Kamay ni Hesus, the now popular pilgrimage site during Holy Week and Laiya, where there’s also a long stretch of beach resorts. I was not aware of this side of Quezon, beaches with powdery off white sand and clear blue water. I was just told by Grace, well if you’re reading my blog for sure the name is familiar to you. I always travel with her.

Kamay ni Hesus last March 2010

We’re planning an early summer getaway, March 2011, for our “barkadahan” in the office and some of our friends who recently resigned. That’s before tsunami hit Japan. Our country also had heightened tsunami alert and Quezon is included on those places. We’re supposed to rent a van but since most backed out we decided to commute instead. Some didn’t like the idea of commuting so there’s only two of us left. Me and Grace. Nevertheless we still pursue the trip. Nothing and no one, even tsunami, can stop and make us change our minds. Beach na Beach na kasi kame eh. 😀

Expenses for the two-day, one night trip:

  • 254 – bus fare from Jac Liner terminal Buendia to Grand Terminal
  • 35 – jeepney fare from Grand Terminal to Padre Burgos
  • 800 per pax – for the room (The Tamarind Tree Resort)
  • 520 per pax – food (includes dinner, breakfast and lunch
  • 1200 – boat rental island hopping (2 islands, 600 per pax)
  • 73 – lunch in local carinderia, bottle of mineral water
  • 30 – Dampalitan Beach entrance fee
  • 35 – jeepney fare from Padre Burgos to SM Lucena
  • 254 – bus fare from Lucena to Buendia
*more or less expenses per person is 2500php
