Exploring the view of Caramoan in a cheapest way possible, many thanks to MetroDeal!

I always love at the gorgeous Caramoan islands’ beauty, for it’s always been one of the main attractions housed in Camarines Sur. I consider it one of the hidden gems in the Philippines because of its pristine beach located at the center of the Caramoan peninsula. The beach’s exotic beauty makes it the prime spot of the show “Survivor Caramoan” few years ago.

Me, Nico, Bill, Oshi and Macci are all in focus in the much-needed getaway outside the city. We made a decision to have it done in Caramoan because of its exclusivity, charm and natural beauty. This is something that we all like in a getaway, to have a place to call our own so that we can do everything we want. 🙂

So we searched on different promos and deals posted on the web, and we droped by Metrodeal’s website and saw their Caramoan travel deal. The 2-D/1-N stay in the island with transfers, meal and island hopping adventure is now only 1999 pesos! I think it’s a great promo, for the usual promo costs 5000 pesos and the Caramoan travel deal from Metrodeal will definitely save me a lot. All of us agree that we purchase this deal and avail from it, that’s why without hesitations, we bought 5 on their website, make the reservation, filled on our vacation leaves and set ourselves to an adventure of a lifetime!

After we arrived from Naga city, the staff from the travel agency greeted us and welcomed us to Camarines Sur. We were escorted to the van going to the lodge so that we can prepare ourselves to the islands. And as we arrive to the lodge our lunch is already served. Of course, we need to relieve ourselves to Camarines Sur’s native delicacies before we go straight forward to the beach.

So after we changed on ourbikinis and ate our lunch, we went to the boat going to the island. The 30-minute ride was all worth it – for as we set our foot at the gorgeous Caramoan island we are all amazed at how beautiful and picturesque the island of Caramoan is. Gorgeous, intricate, untouched by nature and completely hidden from the cruel civilization, we could almost feel that we were all included in the cast of “Survivor Caramoan”, it was indeed crazy and fun!

So to summarize everything on our great Caramoan adventure? It was GREAT! Everything is planned well, and the personnel from the hotel was accommodating and helpful as well. It was a money well spent for we are all given the best service and being in the island itself is an experience to remember. I will love to go back again. 🙂

So thank you Metrodeal for having this amazing deals to your site!

Love for the sky! Adventures with dearest officemates at Potipot!

My and my lunch buddies were all tired and we want to escape to the beach. Our workload has been torturing us and our supervisor stresses us out because of his behavior. We may have our company outing at one of the displayed resorts located in Laguna but for sure we still need to abide his rules, and which I think it is crazy. Who would want to work on this crappy office with a nazi boss after all?

Being adventurers that we are, we think of getting away from the stressful workload and have a perfect vacation for us. And so it’s decided that we need to have a vacation somewhere in the wilderness, with white sand beach, crispy blue waters, tall trees in a secluded island kilometers miles away from the Metro. No internet, no cellphone lines, no crazy work and no crazy boss (lol!) it’ll be a perfect getaway for all of us who wants to destress and be with nature again.

Me and other lunch buddy Macci searched for possible getaway spots that has the things that we are searching for. We checked on travel sites, blogs and we saw this site about the lovely Potipot island situated in Iba, Zambales. A close friend of mine who already went there told me how pristine and hidden the island is, and she even told me that I need to check the majestic sunset view at the far end of the island. I told my lunch buddies about this and we decided that we’re going to see Potipot in the next few days!

The next thing that we did is to scout for travel companies that offer group discounts. We were 7 of us and the 2 days/1 night travel deal to Potipot island from Metrodeal is the best thing for us! I discussed this voucher deal with my lunch mates, agreed to have a group purchase and availed on the voucher on Metrodeal.

So we got the vouchers, fixed our schedule and we’re off to Zambales. We out of Makati at around 7 in the morning and we arrived at around 12 in the afternoon. As we arrived at the resort near Potipot island, we waited for the boat ride going there. And as the boat arrived going our destination, I was anxious as we make our way to the island.

Looking at Potipot is a love at first sight. Never did I thought that it’ll be a secluded version of Boracay. Pristine clear waters, powdery white sand beach, trees at the middle part of the island and I can see live starfishes and fishes nearby! It was |refreshing and all we did while we were there was to have fun and own the whole beach. And as the sun sets we went to the other side of the island. I was close to tears as I cant help myself to love the beauty of the island untouched by people. It was indeed gorgeous.

Since we also availed on the food add-ons posted on the Metrodeal voucher, we can’t help but to indulge to the sumptuous feast in front of us. After the hearty feast we set up the tents and we stargaze as we fall to sleep.

It was a relaxing sleep under the stars and I woke up just before the sun rises. I went on a barefoot run around the island and I cant help but to admire the island’s beauty. Potipot may be small, but it’s a remarkable treasure island hidden from the busy metropolis. As my friends woke up we decided to make a quick dip while we are waiting for our breakfast to arrive.

We love it here! And I swear that I will definitely come back for an adventure again! Metrodeal has been a great friend to me for offering this amazingly budget-friendly deal to us, thanks again!
