How We Got To Caramoan
http://soloflighted.com/2009/07/01/how-we-got-to-caramoan/

After our trip to the Caramoan islands (day 1 and day 2), it was time for us to go to the CamSur Watersports Complex (CWC). From Guilajo Port in the Caramoan town, we rode a boat going to Sabang Port. It was raining at times too but good thing it wasn't that heavy. The boat ride was 2 hours long and then we rode a van going to SM Naga which is just beside the terminal.

We wanted to go to SM in Naga so that we could buy some stuff as well as eat lunch there. It was of perfect timing because we got there around 11am. After buying some groceries in the Supermarket, we went to eat at Mang Inasal for some unlimited rice! haha. It was great to see a mall in the place as it brought some modern feel into the trip. At least we didn't really get away from civilization. Harhar. It was nice cause the mall was spacious too. (Click to enlarge pictures)

After our lunch at Mang Inasal, we went to the CWC already. We rode a jeep at the terminal and after about 25 minutes, we dropped by the crossing to go inside. The CWC is actually near the Capitol site and there's also a large billboard saying Bigg's and the CWC trademark. We stopped over and then hired one of the trikes to get us the complex.

We thought that the highlight of the trip was the Caramoan islands but NO… Our last day (or half day) was spent in the CamSur Watersports Complex (CWC). We didn't really find the Caramoan amazing (waaa, high standards ba?) because of being able to island hop in Cebu, but the CWC activities were really worth it. I was able to try wake boarding (or knee boarding for beginners) and then accumulated some muscle pains because of it.

Wake boarding was really fun and I knew I had to try it out because if we didn't, it would be like going to Siargao and not try surfing. It gave me the adrenaline thrill that I needed so I could sleep in the bus on the way back to Manila. The best part about it is that it's cheaper at 165 bucks per hour.

CWC is just a 20-30 minute ride from the terminal (or airport) in Naga that's why it's really convenient.

the place is really nice at night too!

The CWC has a number of huts and cottages that are affordable. I just forgot to check the rates. But it's also nice at night too. It was raining at that time but it didn't really matter since we were wet most of the time. We just put our things in our rented lockers. Governor "L-Ray" Villafuerte is really something for bringing this idea in this part of the region. Kudos to him!

CWC Rates P165 – Wake Boarding per hour (with a deposit of P500 for the equipment) P25 – locker rental per day (with a deposit of P200) P120 – Lago Del Rey per hour

Coming up would be our Lago Del Rey experiences which is really a giant playground/obstacle course of some sort. Come South, CamSur!

    Hi Ed, Question ulit. Have you tried White water rafting? Do you have an idea where is the best place to do that?
