  • Tips - From Tacloban, you can take a van van to basey (45 minutes). -The boat ride is quite noisy. I suggest you sit forward because you will have a better view for photos. -Bring a flashlight for the cave. -The open sandals or water shoes are more appropriate because of the Kayak. Comments:-we were a group of 4 people (approx 900 pesos per person) and we buy our tickets in the city of Basey. Prices are fixed and it is not possible to negotiate. Starting from Basey, you ride on a motorcycle (2 passengers more conductive), round-trip is included in the price. The boat ride is interesting, but noisy. -Once on the spot, you will visit the Sohoton cave (45 minutes). It is interesting to see because of the rock formations, dry cave, but not what there is more interesting. -The Kayak ride is there is more interesting (Kayak 2 seater). You paddle against the current but the guide is here to help. -The natural bridges are interesting to you. There is current in the River (life jacket supplied) which is not the ideal place to swim. -Everything was well organized. I just hope that it doesn't become an a tourist trap since there is no competition.
