Rediscovering Bicol: Caramoan Tour

West Peninsula Villas was our home for 2 days and 1 night. Since we were a group of 5 and with limited time, we opted to avail a package instead of DIY. The package includes accommodation, meals, island hopping and city tour. The owner is a distant relative of one of my cousin that’s why I was able to get discount 😉

We woke up early to start our Caramoan tour:

Shrine of the Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary.

Reaching the image is not that easy, you have to climb more or less 500 steps. We almost surrendered and were about to go down. Good thing one of my friend climbed a few more steps (only 6-7 steps away) and there she was, the gigantic statue of Our Lady of the Rosary.

We were in so much gratitude to the Lady for pushing my friend a little further. Otherwise, we have not felt the delight reaching the site. Plus, having a bird’s eye view of the whole Caramoan Peninsula was very rewarding.


We headed next to St. Michael the Archangel parish church. A church made of red bricks and considered one of the oldest churches in Bicol Region

We also went to Caramoan Centro were we bought some souvenirs.

Before leaving Caramoan, we had some photo shoot at WestPenn. The staff of Survivor Siberia stayed here during their season and some of the props where left behind so the owner used them as part of the venue decor. I even got a headband of one of the survivor contestant as token.


Survivors?! nope, they were also guest at West Penn 🙂
