Hundred Islands National Park was our first stop for our Philippines 2016 Vacation. We left Bulacan early not to avoid traffic but so we can maximize the time for our trip. We wanted to be there early so we can start island hopping right away. Yes, we were that excited. And that trip wouldn’t be complete without my favorite Emong’s Malunggay Pandesal. It is just so good anytime of the day but most especially on the morning upon waking up.
The commute took around four hours, we got our accommodation at Island Tropic Hotel and Restaurant in Alaminos, Pangasinan. It is located just across the Alaminos Wharf, where you can rent boats to do island hopping. Our accommodation offered us two options as to what kind of room we wanted. We opted for the two family room. So we ended up having a 2 Days/1 Night Hundred Islands Tour Package. The following were also included aside from the room accommodation and meals:
- Service boat ride
- Hundred Islands National Park Environmental Fee
- Table rental where we ate our lunch at the island
- Island hopping
- Tour guide
Here are some photos of islands we saw, can’t remember what they were called. I will update this post as soon as I recall each island’s name. This wouldn’t be called Hundred islands if I don’t show at least some of them.
With Island hopping, you can also add some fun activities like kayaking, snorkeling, helmet dive or zip line just let them know ahead of time. We did snorkeling, and I think actually seen something look like a barracuda. If it really was a barracuda, I have stayed away from it.
Food were abundant to say the least, so we were never hungry. That’s a plus! Here was our breakfast upon arrival at Island Tropics Hotel and restaurant. I was surprised this is the only food photo I have for this trip, maybe my sister have some that I can show here next time. Overall, it was a good trip somewhat similar to our Caramoan trip a few years back.
