Iloilo & Guimaras Adventure - November 20-22, 2010

I just came back from a 3-day vacation in Iloilo and Guimaras with my good friend Benj.

We arrived at Iloilo Airport early morning of Saturday. We took a van from the airport going to SM City Iloilo, fare is 50 pesos each. From there, we took a cab going to Ortiz Pier, taxi fare is around 80 pesos. This pier services boats that transfers passengers from Iloilo to Guimaras Island. We paid 13 pesos each for our tickets and boarded the boat. After a little over 10 minutes, we reached the port of Jordan, Guimaras Island.

Our day 1 of adventure started as we set foot in this beautiful island.

Here are the places we've been to and the actvities we did in Guimaras:

On the afternoon of day 2, we left the island of Guimaras. From Jordan port, we ride again a boat bound for Iloilo City.

We checked-in at Budget Inn in Jaro. It was raining hard when we arrived, so we decided to rest for a while in our room and explored the city in the evening. We also visited famous landmarks in the towns of San Joaquin and Miag-ao on the next day. We've been to:

There are a lot of places to visit in Iloilo, unfortunately, we ran out of time. We have to be in the airport at 8:00 PM to catch our 9:00 PM flight back to Manila.

I'll do separate posts on the places we've been to and the activities we did on this 3-day Iloilo-Guimaras Adventure. Watch out for it!
