  • Hello, this weekend plan po namin pumunta ng Surigao. From Davao po kami and byahe kami ng Saturday night para Sunday morning kami makarating ng Surigao. Meron parin bang tour on Sunday sa Bucas Grande? And plan namin after the tour (around 3PM) balik kami ng Surigao kasi sa Mabua Pebble Beach sana kami matutulog. Possible ba yung itinerary namin? May available jeepney or bus rides pa ba from Hayanggabon to Surigao City terminal in the afternoon? Sana po matulungan niyo kami kasi hindi po namin kabisado yung place at yung schedule ng transpo doon. Thanks.
