At last! Sharing to your our 5 Days 4 Nights Siargao Itinerary for my second time. During my stay in Cebu, a friend of mine invited me for a trip to Siargao. It happened on the 13th to 17th of May, 2018. I said yes for a cheap unplanned Siargao trip and did all the touristy stuff. It’s something I never did during the first trip. This time, I’m with my friend and her colleagues at work.
This time, I never did any research on things to do as there was an itinerary being prepared. The leader of the group had her contacts already. We had our accommodation as well. Everything was ready and all I needed is to experience and pay – hassle free.

How Much Money to Bring in Siargao?
For 5 days to 7 days in Siargao, it is best to bring at least PHP 10,000. The ATM machine is in the municipality of Dapa so you need to go there via a motorbike or take a tricycle if you run out of cash.

Getting drunk, not having enough sleep and catching a flight was the worst thing ever happened in my life. I tried my best not to throw up and fortunately, I never did. We went to Rum Bar with our own motorbikes together with the other three guys from my hostel.
Two of the motorbikes were left behind at Rum Bar as I and the Dutch guy were drunk. The Dutch guy was with the Filipino guy and I hitched a ride with the French guy.
A few hours later, the Filipino guy woke me up and helped me to get my motorbike back. I was able to return it where I rented from.
