Travel Diaries| Enchanting Sohoton!


” No exact words can describe the beauty of Sohoton, the closest adjective I can use that fits to its charm is enchanting…”

The Trip

This one whole day Bucas Grande/Sohoton National Park eskapo was planned a month ago by workmates and friends from Siargao. Yep, April 9 was declared as National Holiday -that means “no work” / long weekend/ backpack mode (for me).

Due to unexpected delays, we failed to catch the earliest trip of a commuter boat from Dapa Port to Socorro- we had no choice but to hire a boat going to Socorro. Fare in a commuter boat is P100.00 only per passenger which means we might pay double or triple of the standard rate – pero sabi nga, walang makakapigil, tuloy ang Sohoton!

We’re 15 in the group and use our individual “karisma” in negotiating the best rate- buti na lang mabait si Manong Bangkero (I forgot to get his contact number and name). The 1-hour trip to Socorro from Siargao is a non-stop “tulala mode” or I should say an hour of non-stop imagining of beautiful Sohoton – as what I’ve seen in the vibrant photos from travel sites and blogs. Obviously, I am the most excited in this tour/adventure!
