Hi there! I hope I didn’t “sker” (scare) you with my big “fez” (face). I just want to welcome and invite you to a short tour where we stayed in Batanes. A couple of people asked me about where we stayed and which airline we booked from. So come on now and virtually walk with me on this tour.
Airline: I heard that going to Batanes wasn’t cheap. The roundtrip airfare to Basco, Batanes before was around P20,000.00. Now, people will no longer find this as an excuse not to explore the beauty of this unique Philippine province. Since May 1 of this year, PAL’s PAL Express started flying to Basco thrice a week through their cutiepie ~ the 76-seater Bombardier Q400 turboprop (sounds awesome). The cost of the roundtrip airfare now? It went down to a more affordable price of P7,000.00. What a huge difference! Now it’s more possible for most of us to save for a Batanes getaway.
Lodging: There are a number of places to stay at in Batanes but one of the best that I heard was Fundacion Pacita. And it didn’t disappoint us. It was beautiful and dreamy.
Our driver Kuya Richard told us that Fundacion Pacita has the best view in the whole Basco. I cannot agree more. With the view of the sky, mountains, the West Philippine Sea and Pacific Ocean surrounding this island, I can’t help myself but sing uhmmm I mean utter, “how great is our God”. Magnificent work….bravo!
