how safe are the roads from manila to baler during rainy season
I'm planning a surfing trip to baler and pagudpod. Can someone tell me how to get from baler to pagudpod by bus.
Hi! I hope someone can help me or give me some information about this. I've tried asking a lot of traveler but it seems that no one knows or familiar with this one. I also sent an email to the Baler Tourism Deparment and as expected, up until now, they're not answering me back. Here's my message to them:
Aurora is a very promising place here in the Philippines. This message is from a residence of Malolos in the province of Bulacan. We wish to ask for some assistance or information about the safety of tourist there in the Aurora province region.
We're planning to do a road trip from Baler to Tuguegarao. Our group will start the travel from Bulacan to Baler and will stay in Baler for 1 day and 1 night to see what beauty of Baler can offer us. After that, we will push north to visit Tuguegarao City in Cagayan Valley. When we searched Google Map, there's a faster route to Tuguegarao from Baler if we will take the Cordon-Diffun-Madella-Aurora Road.
Our concern is our safety. We heard a lot of scary stories that guerilla (NPA) or some goons are ambushing or stopping some vehicle that is traveling in the Aurora road in Dipaculao (since that road is very remote). And other says that the road's Zigzag from Baler going to Tuguegarao is more deadly or worst than the zigzag on Baguio if we will take the Aurora road in Dipaculao. May we ask if all this story is true? We would like to get your best recommendation for our safety. Should we take the Cordon-Diffun-Madella-Aurora Road or is it better for us to go back to San Jose City and take the PAN Highway to go to Tuguegarao?
We hope you can help us enlighten this information for our tour. We're hoping to hear from you soon.
Thank you very much and more power to the province of Aurora!"
I would come to Baler next week end and I need to know how to get there from Clark Airport and which time table if any coaches is available, can i find.
Can anyone tell me if the road between Baler and Cordon is sealed all the way? We need to travel from Baler to Santaigo City using our own vehicles and dont want to double back to San Jose if possible
What is the cheapest hotel in Casiguran, Aurora as I will be only sleeping there then head off to Manila in the morning? No time to bum on the beach
Me and my friends will be going to Baler this weekends, Can you recommend resorts for us. What are other places in Baler that we should visit.

Hi, I am planning to go Aurora, Isabela from Manila. This is my first time to be there in Philippines. So, I don't have much info. So, please tell me where is the bus terminal in Manila to Aurora. How long need to take the bus and how about hotels in Aurora. Any danger over there. DO and DON'T over there . Thank you all.
I'd like to ask if anyone has been to Dicasalarin Bay in Baler Aurora.
We'll be visiting the province on the 27th and aside from touring around Baler, we're also planning to visit this bay. I have a couple of questions first:
1.What can we expect from Dicasalarin Bay? Is the shore rocky? are there huge waves? Is it fit for swimming?
2. Aside from swimming, what else can we do there?
Thanks and hoping for a helpful response/ suggestions

Me and my fiance plans to visit Baler and it's surrounding tourist spots this summer. I'm the one in charge of planning the whole trip, and I badly need some help. I don't know anyone who has been to Aurora much less who lives there. I want to know what are the places you can recommend for us to see and what beaches around Aurora would be possible for us to see. We're planning a 4days 3nights stay. Thanks so much! Any help would be highly appreciated. I hate to visit a place and miss out on all the good stuffs... I want to see everything I think I need to see and experience while I'm at a certain place. Thanks again!
My BF and I are planning to celebrate our anniversary on the 16th this month, I have so many questions as in.. I just discover this place through this site so I really dont have any idea wat to expect there.. Here are my questions:
1)I read here that we would take Genesis Bus to be able to get there, when we are at the baler terminal/is there any bus terminal that we need to alight or all the Genesis bus going to baler has only 1 terminal?? And when we are at the terminal what are we going to ride in able to go to beach front?? And how much is the cost??
2) Where is the cheapest place to stay?? its ok for us to stay in a Lodge as long as it was beach front or a few walks from the beach.. It says here that at the Bay's In?? Where is that located?? How can we get there?? And where is Sabang anyway, some I read that u still need to rent a boat b4 u can get there?? How much is the fee??
3) Where can we eat or is there any restaurant than offer Baler's delicacies, not so expensive restaurant??
4) What are the other tourist spot there that we can go?? Not so far at the beach??
If there's someone here that is from Baler, can I ask u favor to give ur cp no. so that if we are already there we have someone whom we can ask some inquiries..
I will appreciate it so much.. Here is my cp 09179373936..By the way my name is Gay, Im from Manila..
Thank you so much...
Hi. We're planning a road trip to Baler. We'd like to find out the best route from Manila, the conditions of the road (is it paved all throughout or there are unpaved, dirt portions), and the best time to travel in relation to the condition of the road (is it muddy during the rainy season or is it an all-weather road throughout). Thanks.
How do you go to Baler from Manila and how long would it take?
Can anyone recommend a good contact for surfing lessons and equipment rental?

hello, need an advice... is it okay to travel to baler alone (m a female)? I wont stay overnight... my initial plan is to leave manila at about 5am then leave for manila at 5pm. so my rough itinerary wld go like this: 5am ETD to baler, more or less by 10am i am already in baler. that would give me like 5 hours to soak in the water, explore the place by myself... btw, which beach should i check when i get there? are people friendly in aurora? is the beach far from the town proper? thanks... m leaving on july 16 pala
We are again planning on a road trip, this time to Dingalan. I was told that it is part of Nueva Ecija, but when I checked the web, the info I got showed that it is part of Aurora Province. Which is which? How long is the travel time from Manila? Can it be done in a day or overnight? If the latter, any suggestion on accommodation? Also, what are the "should not be missed" spots? Again, your replies will be appreciated. Thanks.
