Travel Blogs from Donsol

A wasted journey?

A travel blog entry by kvolsky


So after 26 hrs on two different buses and 2 very long days of travel I arrived in Donsol. Home of the Butading (Whale Shark); at least supposedly between the months of January and May. To my dismay I arrived at the Whale Shark Research centre to learn that there had only been two sightings in the last week. Had I travelled all of this way for nothing? At the resort I heard story after story from travellers, ...

Adventure when Diving!…..Where's the Boat!!

A travel blog entry by sellers2013-14


Another adventure, this one a bit unplanned!
Enjoyed a large early breakfast to get ready for a day of diving. The weather was sunny, and the wind lighter, so we are optimistic for calmer seas.

It only cost 75 pesos for a minibus from Legazpi to Donsol town (about 1 hour) and then 35 peso down to the beach area. I'm staying ...

Whale Sharks

A travel blog entry by new_lands


... know if they can help you and they have beautiful smiles as you pass. The local transport is fab, the jeeps and tricycles in particular are such fun and unique and I enjoyed my tricycle trip down to the hostel from the bus drop.

As it turns out there are another two people staying in the dorm who are also heading out to see the whale sharks tomorrow, plus another couple arrived in the evening which means we have five and agree to meet up in the ...
