  1. You didn't get to go to the caves? That's what I want to so in Samar, caving :)

  2. I prepared the itinerary but never took the flight due to budget constraints. I prioritized a climb in Pico de Loro that weekend.

    Also this is only an overnight stay... and I think the caves are a bit far from Catarman. There's always that "some other time". =D
