How much is transportation cost/ bus fare from Batac, Ilocos Norte to Manila / Cubao. TY!
does Pagudpud have good snorkeling or more for surfing?
Hi, a friend of mine is going on a study trip to Batac for roughly a month and she's looking for a nice cheap place to stay that isn't going to burn a hole in her wallet. Any hotels, inns, rooms for rent, or transient houses in the area you can recommend?
Hello po! I'm from San Fernando, La Union and we (friends) are looking for a place to stay in Pagudpud. Either resort or hotel na affordable. Our plan is to travel on 19th at 6PM and hopefully to arrive midnight at Pagudpud then check-in na. To further help me to decide,
Check-in sa Resort (maybe Saud Beach Resort) and stay for a day. Next day, check-out na and stop-overs na lang sa Bangui Windmills, Laoag hanggang makarating na ng SFC La Union.
Pa-advise naman po. Thank you!
making a DIY South tour in Pagudpud.. last stop if Burgos Lighthouse... would anyone know if merong masasakyang bus from there to Laoag? o kailangan naming bumalik ng Centro (Pagudpud) para makapagbus pa-Laoag? Thank you!
where to stay in Pagudpud? Laog to Pagudpod tour 1 night to stay ok lang ba?
Hi! Me and my wife are planning on a long drive trip to Pagudpud from manila, our plan is to leave on August 13 and return back to manila on the 17th. I need some tips on where we should stay for the first night either in Vigan or Laoag. I dont think i can drive all the way from manila to Pagudpud so for the first night we plan to spend the night somewhere in between. On our way back were planning on doing the same but in Baguio,. Is the road safe going to baguio from Vigan? Is the road similar from Kennon road? And also, how much budget you think we should allot? we'll be staying in Pagudpud for 2 nights (hannah's beach resort) and try to visit all tourist spots and do most activities around that area (except for the waterfalls & trekking).Do you think P30k max. is a good budget? including petrol. Our vehicle would consume about 9-10km per litre so that leaves us with about 20k budget for accomodation, food, etc.
We will be staying at Casa Consuelo from May 3-5, 2014. Is it possible to go around Laoag from 7am to 4pm during our first day? Then the next day, our plan is to explore pagudpud. Lastly we will visit Vigan then we will be heading back to manila around 10pm.
Is this a good itinerary? Any suggestions will be welcome :)
Is it cheaper to hire a tourist guide with a car or to commute during the whole trip?
Thanks in advance!
How far is the waterfall from Saud beach. If I only have 1 day to explore, would you advise on trekking in to the waterfall? I also want to see the lighthouse
How much will it cost for 4 persons to travel and stay to pagudpud for 2 days, including food, hotel rooms, food and beaches?
We're from isabela
We are a family planning to travel come january 2014
We are planning our itinerary for backpack travelling (we have our own van).
We just need advice on travel time - coming from Baguio to Vigan, to Laoag, sidetrip to Currimao and onwards to Pagudpud. How many hours travel at each point I mentioned?
Also, if we are to tour Laoag, is it advisable to stay overnight there before onward travel to Pagudpud? Then another overnight stay at Pagudpud should be done to break travel? After pagudpud, we plan to go to Cagayan Province. How many hours to Tuguegarao from Pagudpud?
will await your response.
my email address is email@example.com

Me and my husband plans to visit pagudpud for 2days and we'll be bringing our families. It would be like 3families around 15 adults and 7kids between 10-3yrs old. I have a few concerns since i cannot browse much in the net for some dont have websites to refer to. Hope you guys could help me. Thanks in advance!
- first is which resort is the good place to stay with family and kids at a manageable price?
- place having kitchen as well where guest can cook themselves (save a bit on food) :)
- i also consider hannahs resort since it's a family oriented place and closer to blue lagoon but its a bit pricey. Is there a better place close to it?
- any suggested itenirary for 2days stay? We have our own transpo and may arrive in pagudpud at dawn on the first day. We might not hire a tour guide then so please help how to maximize the time whilst enjoying all the things to do and see in pagudpud.
Thank you so much! It will be a great help. Btw, the family adventure will be on the last week of april(hope its not yet too late to plan) Godbless you all.

DAY 0 (FRIDAY)
My girlfriend and I are planning to visit Ilocos this summer. We will depart friday night from NAIA terminal 3 at around 1900H and arrive Laoag Airport at around 2030H. Probably will just spend the night in a hotel. Is Hotel Tiffany a good stay?
DAY 1 (Saturday)
We are planning to tour around good spots near Laoag. Base from what I read, these are:
- Paoay Church
- Paoay Lake
- Malacanang of the North
- Marcos Mausoleum and Muesum
- St. Williams Cathedral
- Sinking Bell Tower
- Museo Ilocos Norte
- La Paz Sand Dunes
- Sta. Monica Church in Sarrat
- After the tour, we will go to Pagudpud
Could anyone advise me what should be the order in visiting these places so that we could maximize our time. Or could I ask anyone of a contact number of a tour guide? Is the tour also feasible? We are planning to finish the tour at around 5-6PM. Then go to Pagudpud.
DAY 2 (SUNDAY)
We are planning to stay either in Punta Azul or Hannah Beach Resort. Which is better of the two? We plan to also to tour around near spots in Pagudpud such as:
- Bangui Windmills
- Cape Bojeador Lighthouse
- Patapat Viaduct
- Kaibigan Falls
- Timagtang Rock Formation
- Batay Abot Cave
- Agua Grande
- Don Hermanos Islands
We're planning to leave the resort at around 6PM because our flight back to Manila is at 2030H. What about the traffic from Pagudpud to Laoag Airport? Is it not so heavy? Is it already enough to allot 2.5 hours for travel time from pagudpud to laoag?
Thanks very much guys! I'm a newbie here. I will really appreciate your replies.
