  • Great day trip from Cebu for snorkeling. However, don't get ripped off by the island hopping 'tours' that charge 3,000 to 6,000 pesos. The Ferry Ride is 12 peso from Angasil Port, or 15 peso from Hilt...  more »
  • Olango island is mainly travellers stay la Pura push-(Mactan Island) under the Shangri-La resort island of BANGKA ride for passengers in the neighborhood. Go to the island to a tri-city vehicle hire road situation is very harsh. So instead of having a few foreign travelers Chief affinities were a good backpacker per hour or full-day rental, such as drivers and wander around as a bargain. Southeast Asia is larger or tri-city, motorcyclists are full of scammers so please be careful. When it rains because the land is all over the place locked BANGKA. If you select the tour's nicest olango tour is never well I don't know. One way for passengers to and from the island of BANGKA was not remembered as 20 pesos. (Terminal including tax) is also a small island BANGKA is the price that much. But I found a street motorcycle was 50 pesos each. Well I have several island snorkeling points (no sand beaches) is also a protected area for migratory birds, as long as the waters are clean and much better than the Mactan Island Air even cleaner. If you've been challenged many times and details once the word of the Lord. Personally, I Cebu I remember I was there than somewhere.
