When it was still largely unknown to local tourists, the Caramoan peninsula was featured in the 2004 edition of an international travel guide book. It was described as a rugged, pristine and beautiful landscape only accessible by boat. Caramoan burst into the scene in 2008 when the French version of the TV series Survivor featured the place. It soon began attracting local and international visitors.
Still quarantined here in Metro Manila we can’t help but dream about travel destinations in our bucket list. In the past we have tried to go by a cardinal rule of not going back to a place we’ve already visited. We haven’t kept that rule always but for the most part our major trips have been to new places of interest.
