As most people say, you've never been to Samal Island if you don't experience riding a “habal-habal”. This single motorcycle is the most common ride you would find in the island of Samal, especially when going around the tourists spots in the island. There are no standard fees as each driver or operator charges differently. It also vary depending on where you want to go and how long your tour will be.
In our case, we took 3 motorcycles which the resort contacted for us. At first they were charging us Php 1,000 pesos for each motorcycle. It's a bit pricey because the resort definitely has a commission on the payment that we will be paying them.
As it is beyond our estimated budget, we tried haggling for the price. Luckily, from 1000 pesos, we managed to bring it down to Php 600 pesos per bike. Oh yes! Pwede na! Go! The good thing with our drivers is they are very accommodating and they know how to deal with demanding “tourists” like us. Hehehe!
I think 600 pesos is reasonable, considering the places we went to. Aside from the fact that it took us around 6 hours touring the island. Watch out for the places we went to on my next posts.
I highly recommend this group of habal-habal operators, I am certain that they will take good care of you!
So, if you're planning a trip to the island, please contact them for their habal-habal services. And please, Php 600 is reasonable enough. Okay? Wag nang tumawad! Hahaha! Thanks!
