Buses / vans – from PHP 150.00 – PHP 199.00 / person

Step 2: From Agora Terminal to Barangay Camp PhilipsManolo Fortich

JeepPHP 30.00 / person

Vans PHP 70.00 / person

Tips: 1. Tell the van driver to drop you off to Agora but be specific. It should not be inside the Agora terminal but at Mang Inasal where the terminal of vans and jeeps for Barangay Camp Philips is

2. If you take the van / jeep going to Camp Philips, tell the driver to drop you off where you can get a habal-habal driver for Dahilayan, Bukidnon

* There is also a Bus that would take you directly to Dahilayan (inside the Agora Terminal) but it has another route – you can’t visit / eat at the Del Monte golf club house for their “famous” steak if you take this route*

Step 3: From Camp Philips, Manolo Fortrich to Dahilayan, Bukidnon

Habal – habal or motorcycle: one way – PHP 150.00 / person (PHP 500.00 (round trip), but I think you can still bargain with the driver for as low as PHP 350.00 – PHP 400.00)

Recommendation: Habal – habal driver: Mr. Allan – 09093637250

Tips: 1. You can ask the driver to take you to Del Monte Golf Club to have a taste of their famous steak  for lunch

TRAVEL TIME: 30 MINUTES



Dahilayan, Bukidnon to Camiguin Island



Step 1: From Dahilayan, Bukidnon to the Terminal of Camp Philips, Manolo Fortich

If you want to stay overnight, tell the driver to fetch you the next day. Pay him half then the remaining balance after he takes you to the terminal the next day
