Itinerary & Expenses – 7 Days in Bicol (Caramoan, Naga, Legazpi)

We originally only wanted to see the Mt Mayon and spend a couple days in Legazpi. We ended up spending a total of 7 days. We hopped on some of the most beautiful islands in Caramoan, ate a steaming bowl of Kinalas in Naga and ended our trip admiring the majestic, perfect cone of Mayon volcano.

Please feel free to pick and choose which portion of our itinerary you’d like to use. Do make sure that you allot enough leeway for travel times and delays.

Please note that the following are our major/necessary expenses. This does not include purchases like snacks, supplies, souvenirs, etc. Prices are on a per person basis (except accommodations) unless otherwise specified. You also may have noticed that some meals didn’t make it into this list. It’s hard keeping track of those, cause I eat a lot! Hahaha!
