Welcome to Aurora Province

I am on-the-go for several weeks now and I find myself travel back to NORTH.

We booked our tour to Baler, that is a two days and 1 night trip. On a warm Friday night we begun our journey to one of the surfing hotspots in the North. This is a van tour which cost Php 2100 or $47 – 50.00 inclusive of tour, accommodation and food. This is really a cheap tour, if your going backpacking it might cost you more because transportation there is a bit nifty especially if you’re a foreign tourist.

From Manila to Baler, it took us 5-6 hours travel time with 2 stop over. The road is not very kind in some areas. Our driver encountered rough, zigzag, narrow and eerie roads on the way but still we manage to get there 30 minutes earlier than expected.

We reached Sabang Beach on its sunrise, the sun kissing the Pacific Ocean. The sand is black and the breeze gives relaxation. It was a perfect day for the tour. Everyone did not mind the bumpy travel and very eager to start the day in Baler.

We hit food stalls first to energize for our first activity. Baler doesn’t really offer good food unlike other provinces of the Philippines but the eatery is cheap and budget friendly. Food budget can be around Php700.00 / $15-20.00 for 2 days and 1 night but that would vary depending on how often and big your meal.

Aurora welcomes us very warmly
