Cagayan is beautiful. Ive never been before and it was fantastic to see. A lot of my mums family reside in Cagayan and it was fantastic to see them. The country side of the Philippines is something i dont see much of. We spent Christmas here as well and it was really nice, we celebrated it at Kingston lodge our hotel and it was lovely, we then spent Christmas dinner at a venue the family hired.
... but it just helps to build bonds when you can break down the communication barrier, and Raine was intent on us learning. One of the volunteers got really good at it somehow in a pretty short amount of time. Of course she'd been in CDO much much longer than myself, but still, I was really impressed that she could somewhat carry on a conversation.

TravelPod Member ReviewsKingston Lodge Cagayan de Oro
The new room where we stayed smells like a newly painted one, not so pleasant for my nose.Yes, it's clean with tv, fridge, air con, hot and cold shower but the ambiance isn't as pleasant as the original rooms they have got where we first stayed. Moreover, they have just one plus, a swimming pool!
