About This Blog
Flight chronicles of the backpacker Tutubi, with travelogues, pictures/photos/videos, travel guides, independent and honest reviews, affordable, recommended resorts and hotels (including inns, guesthouses, pension houses, lodges, hostels, condotels, bed and breakfast and other cheap accommodations), commuting guides, routes (sometimes street maps and GPS coordinates/waypoints) and driving directions to answer "how to get there" questions, information and tips on tourism, budget travel and living in Philippines, Exotic Asia and beyond!

Backpacking, independent travel, and flashpacking are cheaper than the "cheapest package tours" and promotional offers around but you can also use travel information for family vacations, even romantic honeymoon destinations.

More than the usual tourist spots and "places to see," this blog advocates heritage conservation, environmental protection, and history awareness for Filipinos, foreigners, and ex-pats wishing to explore Paradise Philippines and Exotic Asia!

    Cagayan de Oro to Balingoan Pier to Camiguin Ferry

    For people wishing to visit Camiguin Island in Northern Mindanao, one of Tutubi's favorite island destinations, herewith is updated information on "How to get to Camiguin" via CDO provided by a traveler-friend of Tutubi who had just arrived from the volcanic island. This is the same route Tutubi took when he visited the island six years ago except that he came from Cebu via Cebu Ferries to the port of Cagayan de Oro.

    From Lumbia Airport (Cagayan de Oro Airport)

    Take a taxi to take you to Agora Bus terminal then board a bus to Butuan, the bus will pass by Balingoan Bus terminal. Bus travel time is about 2 hours, Fare is PhP110.00

    Cheaper alternative: from Lumbia airport, ride a jeep outside the airport and request the driver to transfer you to jeepneys plying the R2 route that will take you to Agora Bus Terminal.

    From the new Laguindingan Airport

    take the shuttle to the main road (minimum fare of PhP8.00), then wait for a bus to Cagayan de Oro

    There are also vans for hire outside the airport or CDO pier that can take a group directly to Camiguin, more expensive but convenient.

    Once you arrive at Balingoan Bus Terminal, you have to walk about 10 minutes to get to the Port of Balingoan (Pier) where Ferries to Camiguin, including Ro-ro ships, to take you to Port of Benoni on Camiguin Island.

    Ferry to Camiguin:

    Port of Balingoan, Misamis Oriental to Port of Benoni, Camiguin and vice versa via Superferry

    Ferry to Camiguin Fare: PhP135.00
    Balingoan Port Terminal Fee: PhP2.25
    For more information on ferry schedules, visit Superferry's official website at; or give them a call at telephone number +63.2.528-7000; +63.917.889.2421 (mobile)

    To return to Manila, you just have to retrace your steps and you'll be back in Manila, in not time.

    You can also board a bus to Butuan for lovers of history or a bus to Bukidnon of Davao in Balingoan Bus Terminal.

    Thanks for the info! we're (3 of us) planning to go to Camiguin this weekend. Medyo madami kami gusto puntahan parang overnight lang ang pwede sa Camiguin from 3pm to 10 am the next day kasi we have to catch the ferry papuntang Bohol. i was hoping you could give us the "what must" sights to see, food to eat and accomodations to book including contact numbers. Meron bang may alam ng magaling at mabait na tour guide with the multicab para mailibot kami ng todo at sulit sa aming paglalakbay?
