I've been there & accurate yang instructions. From cubao, I got to naga bus terminal for 11 hours,(includes traffic) 700+ un transpo. From bus station, 5-10m walk un sakayan ng fx papuntang sabang, dun un sa tapat ng robredo collisseum. Almost 2h un byahe. Den boat ride from sabang to caramoan main port for P200/head for almost 2h boat ride. From port, tricycle trip for 1.5h+ to hotel or in my case, umupa kami ng bahay along coast for P1,200 in 1.5 day stay... Eto lang, "sulit na sulit ang byahe" once you get to see the beauty of the caramoan islands.
