Breathtaking Batanes: Crisan Lodge/ Crisan Pension House

Batanes is every pinoy travel's dream destination. For its breathtaking and photogenic view. Batanes is where  South China sea meets Pacific ocean. (Interesting! right?)

Travel Period: Oct 22-25, 2017
Accommodation: Crisan Lodge / Crisan Pension house

Our accommodation was referred by a friend of friend. The owner who is Kuya Mon and his wife ate Crisan is very accommodating and also our driver/photographer/tour guide Kuya JC/Jesi is highly recommended. 

Our a/c room is good for 4 for only Php500.00 per head with breakfast inclusion. Months before the travel, I texted kuya Mon, asking if they had tour package, he didn't disappoint me  and he responded immediately and texted the details. We only find out that Crisan Lodge own an air conditioned van, open type jeep with cogon roof and a tricycle use for transportation and tour when we are there. It's up to us what to use. And because we are only 3 and stay 3 days in Batanes we choose the tricycle. Our tour package within 3 Days includes tour destination to North Batan, South Batan and Sabtang Island, tour guide/driver, environmental fees and lunch. Our only damage was dinner and pasalubong.

We do not know that crisan lodge has a grocery store. Prior to our flight we decided to buy or share food. To lessen our expenses my group carries canned goods, snacks, water and rice :) (lol rice because rice is life).
Yes, we bring our own water (6 liters) didn't know that dispense water is also available in the lodge.

If you want to cook dinner, the main kitchen at the first floor is available with small charge.

Do not expect wifi and data, internet signal is not yet recovered due to typhoon Ferdie last Sept 2016. But you can text and call. Enjoy your time talking with friends :)
