We decided to work our way down from the farthest point, which was Bislig City, where Tinuy-an Falls is; then to Hinatuan for Enchanted River; down to Britania; then finally to Surigao City, the jump off for both Bucas Grande and Siargao.
From the airport, we rode a van that took us straight to Barangay Mangagoy, Bislig City. The van ride took almost five hours, as it had mandatory stops in all bus stations. Fare was ₱350. It would have been cheaper if we rode from the Butuan City Bus Terminal, but we decided to just go for the ones parked at the airport to save time. Not sure if we saved time, though.
In Bislig City, we stayed at Casa de Babano, which was recommended by most tricycle drivers we talked to. We also considered Sleep Inn, which was recommended by different travel blogs, but the room offered to us at Casa de Babano looked cleaner. We paid ₱600 for a stay with a common CR, but it was okay since we were the only registered guests that night.
