It was more than 2 hours away from Siargao Island. The small boat covered the long distance and withstood moderate waves.

We reached first the Cinnamon Island Cottages. I was so hungry that day, I asked the boatman to stop so that we could partake our breakfast at the island.
The owner was kind enough to allow us to eat even though we were not listed as guests that day.
The cottage is managed by Strengthened Association of Volunteers for the Environment of Sohoton (SAVE Sohoton). The rate is P2,500/room per night with free breakfast (for 1-5 persons) Contact No: 09488205835 Roldan (Operations Manager)
Thereafter, we proceeded to the Sohoton cove Visitor's Area.
After a few minutes, we finally reached our destination for that day.

The turquoise waters that surround the many islets in this area were clearly fascinating.
"Good thing I made this trip," I told myself.
I really cannot recall how much I paid that day. But if I remember it right, I paid P1,500 - P1,800 for the boat and the guide.
In just less than 15 minutes, we were off touring the cove.
We were four in the boat. The guide, the two boatmen and I.
I had no plans of getting wet that day. Probably because I was already exhausted. I was on the 13th day of my tour in Mindanao which started in Cagayan de Oro.
