The Pristine Beauty of Bucas Grande


We overslept because we were all worn out from the 10 hour bus ride originating in Davao City. It was a tough ride, we left Davao City around 8:00 and later arrive in Butuan City around 5:30 pm. We have been on the road for almost 8 hours, but not just yet. We still have to endure another 2- hour bus ride to Surigao City. While on the bus we were in constant contact with the staff of VMO Tourist Inn. It’s a blog worthy inn with amazing amenities such as clean rooms, good food and courteous staff. As we arrived, we alight from the bus and we’re about to board a jeepney when I got a call from one of the staff of VMO Tourist Inn.

We were told to remain in a certain area of the bus terminal to be easily spotted because their van service is going to fetch us for FREE. After a short while, the van arrives. We were easily spotted by the driver and ten minutes later we arrived at the tourist inn. Check in was a breeze, we were in our room in no time but we need to satisfy our tummies before hitting bed . We looked for eateries near the riverside but unfortunately there were none. Luckily the hotel restaurant was still opened. We had shrimps, pork and chicken teryaki rice toppings, noodles and fruit juices to go with it. Food was great and not that expensive. By the way, room starts at Php 1,500 with free breakfast and free shuttle service to and from the airport or bus terminal. You can check the room prices and amenities by clicking here.
