Potipot Island, Uacon Zambales (2009)
This trip gave birth to the wanderlust in me.
Armed with a meager Php. 2,000, we boarded the Victory Liner bus in Caloocan to Zambales.
As far as I can remember, we left at around 4am on a Saturday. It was supposedly 10pm the night before but unfortunately, the bus left us. We arrived in Zambales with the sun shining already, at around 8am.
Accommodation: Alta Nina Resort in Cauyan Zambales
Rate: Php1,500/night for 4 pax which excludes breakfast
Food: No worries about the food though. You can ask the caretaker/s to cook for your family and friends. Or, you can opt to buy from the nearby market and cook by yourself.
Expenses: Since this was a long time ago, I think you would just have to allot money for bus ride (Php1000), accommodation (Php500), food (Php500) and I think you’ll survive with just Php 2000.
The cheap thrill that is Potipot.
Go forth and find new places to discover 🙂
