Wanderlust: Capones, Zambales

I may not have the luxury of time to travel often because of my heavy work schedule, but I made a vow to have time at least once a year to go out of town with the husband and some friends. I think planning for this trip gave me and the hubby the renewed passion and vigor to travel and explore more while we're still young and able.

The travel from Manila to Zambatown took us approximately 4 hours including the bathroom breaks and lunch. We managed to arrive at the resort (Capones Vista Resort) at 2:30 in the afternoon. We pre-booked the Family room which is good for 8 pax, and since we were only 6 in the group, the extra space/towels/toiletries worked to our advantage.

The resort is overlooking the picturesque Camara and Capones island which you can visit by availing the resort's island hopping package. I think it was 350 PhP per head, for 3 islands (Camara, Capones, and Anawangin cove).

Breakdown of costs:
Accomodation (1 night): 9,000 PHP/6 = 1500 PHP/person
Island Hopping: 350PHP/head
Breakfast: FREE
Lunch and Dinner at the resort: 500PHP/head

Total Cost is approximately: 2,700 PHP/head (excluding gas, toll fees and other misc. items)

The whole trip was a bit pricey but seeing the beauty of Zamba and being in the company of such awesome friends made the trip priceless. I wish we could've stayed a few days longer but duty calls for all of us the following day. We have another trip lined up this April and I will be sure be blogging about it soon.

It's so nice to be back to blogging again.
