  • Be Back From Your Tour Before Dark

    I noticed that there were no street lamps in the highway. If you leave Pagudpud for a tour of nearby towns (some tourists charter a tricycle to go to nearby towns like Burgos and Bangui), be conscious of your travelling time. Be sure to return to your resort in Pagudpud before it gets dark. I must emphasize it gets very, very dark in the evening....

  • Accident At Slippery Rocks!

    When you go strolling around the beach, you'll find some areas with huge rocks. Before you tread on them, hold the surface with your hand to see if they are slippery. Wet Rocks covered with moss or seaweeds are normally slippery so make sure your beach shoes or sandals have good traction. And even if you have footwear with good traction, be careful...

If you don't do this, the driver might ask for additional...
