Thanks to Cebu Pacific’s seat sale (October 2010), I was able to book 7 persons for less than P200 per pax, destination – Dipolog!
Some of you might be thinking now, where is this place and what can we see in Dipolog? With a little research, we found out that Dipolog is a gateway to Dapitan and Dakak!
We were scheduled to meet up at the airport at least 2 hours before the flight which was 1040H. After check-in, It was announce that our flight will be delayed (It was moved to 1330H).
Cebu Pacific provided us lunch to compensate the wait.
We arrived around 1430-1500. Beforehand, I arranged with Monina Pension House (maribel – 09196144295) to pick us up using their van (for only P500/group).
This building was constructed in 1972 and houses Rizal’s relics. It is also the office of the Rizal Park Curator.
After arriving @ Monina, we proceeded to Rizal’s residence located at the shores of Talisay (which he stayed for 4 years). We hired a trike (P7 per pax) to bring us there. A local guide gave us a tour (Rizal in Dapitan 101). She was very hospitable and friendly.

After the tour, we arrived at Inato Lang Restaurant Dapitan Aquamarine Park around 1630H (we learnt from our service earlier that we can charter a boat that will take us to Aliguay Island in Dampa). The employee introduced as to Jade. We were able to negotiate a service going to Aliguay Island. Jade by the way works with Gloria De Dapitan.
we decided to have our dinner at Inato Lang Restaurant Dapitan Aquamarine Park as well.
The food was very delicious, ***** stars!
After dinner, we head back to Monina to momentarily rest.
We ended the night by having a few drinks in one of the local bars at Gloria De Dapitan
