    CAPE ENGANO
    The next day, Saturday we visited Cape Engano and Falls in Palui Island. As expected, the scenery in Cape Engano is stunning. Its beauty - the overlooking beach shore, the greenery cliffs, the structure of the lighthouse together with the force of the wind, compelled us that Cagayan was really worth seeing.
    After Cape Engano, we visited the falls of Palaui. Hike was less that 45mins to the falls. Its a cascading two-tiered water falls. Since its summer the water was not overflowing but enough to have a small basin for us to take a plunge.

    SNORKLING
    Last stop was the Snorkling area in the protected area in front of Palaui. Amazing colorful and healthy coral reefs are there to surprise you. When still in the boat, our guide showed us a laminated photos of the marine life that we can see there. At first, it seemed that its too beautiful to be true but we were incorrect. The corals were lovelier than Palawan's corals much bigger and healthier. The strict implementation of the protected area really paid off. No fishing is allowed in the area thus preserving the corals untouched. In addition, the officers are adding aquatic flora and fauna like giant clamps to add to its inventory of marine life there. The guides are trained where to safely stand without touching the corals.

    At the tip of the Island of Palaui in Santa Ana, Cape Engano Lighthouse is located, a 30 minute trek to reach the top of the hill and be charmed by the lighthouse's beauty.
    Engano means 'pleasing". And it was.

    For less than P800.00 ($20.00), one can get to Santa Ana, Cagayan, a 15 hour bus trip from Manila as they say, but it took me 16 or 17 hours.
    Scheduled to depart 1:00pm and 3pm in their Sampaloc terminal.
    In case you missed these trips, you can travel to Tuguegarao or Aparri bound buses.
    I took the Aparri bound bus at 10:30pm and was in Tuguegarao before lunch time.
    Then the conductor told me that my drop point is about 1 hour more travel and i have to ride a bus with Santa Ana signage.
    I was in Santa Ana Commercial Center, their marketplace, at about 4pm.

    Florida Airconditioned Bus scheduled to leave Santa Ana at 3:00 in the afternoon.

    If going to Cape Engano, don't just ask help from the locals, go to San Vicente Port and register. A guide is compulsary at 250.00 per 4 guests.
    Tour at Punta Verde Island with 2 boatmen at 1,800.00.
    RATES are fixed as listed in PASAMOBA Cooperative.
