Early March, I received a message from my cousin that she is coming home to the Philippines in April for a few days. You see my cousin was born and raised in Canada and the last time we saw her was 13 years ago. This trip was long overdue. We were all excited. We agreed to meet her in Surigao to be with her and her friends to visit Bucas Grande. I have long wanted to visit the place and this is the perfect opportunity. I have long wanted to travel with my cousins, too!
Bucas Grande Group of Islands is part of the municipality of Socorro in Surigao del Norte. To get there, you must reach the port of Hayanggabon in Claver, Surigao del Norte to cross to the islands. Claver is an hour and a half land trip from Surigao City.
This is our home in Bucas Grande for four days. This called Cinnamon Island. There are cinnamon trees in this island. We get an unlimited supply of cinnamon tea. After every island hopping trip, there is cinnamon tea waiting for us.
Electricity was available from 5 PM to 7 AM the following day. Who needs power when you are out exploring the whole day? There is cellular signal in some areas of the island.
