    Environmentally Friendly Flies!

    by donajanv Updated Mar 3, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Please bring very light and thin long sleeves and pajama pants especially if you’re camping out or staying at an accommodation where there are abundant mangrove trees nearby coz there are insects that have very itchy bites like mosquitoes. They call it Nik-nik OR Nok-nok or Sand Flies in English. Unfortunately, Off Lotions or any type of insect repellant doesn’t work. But don’t let that alarm you. A Nik-nik/Nok-nok/Sand fly only comes out when there's no wind blowing and/or during the moon formations and low tide. They are quite essential and beneficial to the mangrove environment, and the mangroves are very important feeding grounds for fishes, therefore, these sand flies, though not human friendly, helps the environment more than you'll ever know :)! So don't mind the bites, they're probably just getting their revenge on human beings for destroying half of the earth's environment :)!

    Pack bag to Caramoan

    by tinybabols Updated Mar 3, 2010

    Luggage and bags: The ever handy backpack is a must.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: No need to bring a whole lot of clothes. All you would ever need are beach shorts, tanks tops, swim wear, malong and of course your favorite hat. Well, do bring lightweight pants for the bus ride (the bus aircon could get too cold).
    For swimming, if you have booties, bring it. Otherwise wear your sandals with straps (mojos). No need to wear rubber shoes going to Caramoan coz most of the places you would be going are the beaches and flip flops or mojo's is the way to go.

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: In most of my travel my kikay kit always contains:
    small bottle of shampoo/conditioner (you can buy from Watsons a small container so you can transfer you favorite shampoo there)
    several small soap (Safeguard or hotel soap with small soap sizes, so that i don't have to bring wet soggy soap after taking a shower in the beach resorts)
    toothpaste and toothbrush
    facial cleanser (you would need this esp after coming from a day soaked in salt water)
    moisturizer and lotion
    cotton buds
    comb
    alcohol
    nail cutter (you'll never know when your nails might get chipped off right?)
    small packets of wet ones/tissue paper (just to make sure that you don't get caught off guard in the bathroom ;) )

    my medical supply is usually composed of: a few tablets of paracetamol, alaxan, non-drowse neozep, diatabs, antacid, anti-histamine and band-aids.

    Photo Equipment: You might want to pack your cam in a handy dry bag (this doesn't cost too much, you can buy this in some sports shops or dive shops) and malong or towel to wrap your camera.
    For those of us with no underwater cam, a disposable underwater cam is good enough since you'd be in the water most of the time.

    Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: If you want to camp, La Playa is a good place to go since they have campsites. You can bring your own tent or rent one from them.
    For the beach, bring along your booties, snorkel/mask (unfortunately corals and marine life is not that great, it has been damaged from overfishing some years ago according to locals), sunblock, and don't forget to bring food and lot's and lots of water. Island hopping takes the whole day and you'd need food and water to keep you happy. :D
