2D1N Dingalan, Aurora 2017: DIY Tips, Itinerary, and Budget

While there are day tour trips that are offered to this place for as low as P 999.00 per person, we opted to DIY since we wanted to do an overnight trip. Great choice for us since we had the whole place to ourselves for two days! :))

We left Cubao at 3 AM. That was the first trip of Five Star Bus Company to Cabanatuan.  (P 185.00)

Upon arrival to Cabanatuan, we rode an FX to Dingalan, Aurora. (P 100.00)

At the FX terminal, we rode a tricycle to Feeder Port. (P 20.00)

Finding feeder port is a crucial part of this trip. Chos. haha! 'Cause it's in Feeder port where you'll find the Tourism Desk and people who'll help you plan for your trip if you're like us who didn't research beforehand. Dingalan, Aurora is welcoming tourists and have started applying standardized rates for everyone so better go there in groups of four above for a cheaper trip. Only two of us shared the expenses so it was quite expensive but we spent less than 2,000 PHP each for what felt like a private get-away. Not bad.

Matawe Beach and Rock Formation

Beach and Rock Formation is free but tricycle ride costs P 250.00

Tan-Awan Falls

We had to pay P 20.00 each for the entrance to the falls, and same with the beach P 250.00 for a tricycle ride.

For both Tan-Awan Falls and Rock Formation, we also had to pay for a tour guide fee but I lost my list of amount so...

We opted for a trek instead of riding a boat. 

It was P 250.00 for a two way trek and another P 250.00 to the Batanes of the East.
