HOW TO GET THERE AND WHERE TO STAY:
The Town is accessible by bus or van from Kalibo, Iloilo or Caticlan. Travel by group is advisable to lessen your expenses.
You will take another journey from the highway before reaching the destination. If you don’t have an own or haven’t rented a van, motorcycles in the highway are available for your service.
You will pay 50 pesos as a registration fee. Moreover, beside the registration area, you can enjoy a 500m+500m=1km total 2-zipline ride and there are also a nearby activities offered such Kawa Hot Bath, Tibiao River Rafting and Bugtongbato Falls Tour.
But if you want to stay in Bugtongbato Falls Inn / Peter’s Lodge where we stayed for 1 night, it’s another journey to take until you will reach Barangay Tuno (the end point where vehicles could enter).
Look for a tour guide (Php. 50 per head multiples by members of the group) and register again.Then start hiking up to the Peter’s Lodge about 30 minutes walking.
You can rent a two-storey cottage with one large bedroom below, an open space upstairs, one comfort room, one bathroom, a dining and a kitchen (We paid 300 pesos each for a night stay with 17 pax in a group). The lodge also offers Cooking Service and Kawa Hot Bath. Cellphone signal is too weak but with 24-hour Service of Electricity.
One another good thing if you stay in Peter Lodge, Bugtongbato Falls is just 2-minute walk.
