It consists of a Museum that houses Rizalian relics and artifacts as well as replicas of Rizal's abode and clinic which sprawl the grounds. During my August 3, 2016 visit I was... More

Take a 1 and a half hour flight going to Dipolog and around 30-45mins drive to get to Dapitan, of coming from Manila. Most hotels like the dakak Park and beach resort where we stayed can arrange a city tour for 2500 (that amount can accommodate as much as 10 persons already) The Rizal shrine is breathtaking. My husband and... More

The Rizal Shrine is the last stop of our trip before heading back home. The location is estimated 1.5km from the Travelbee Heritage Inn with a 10php fare rate still, and guess what Kuya driver waited us outside the shrine so that he can bring us to the terminal of bus going to Dipolog without asking for a bigger fare...

Jose Rizal is the national hero of the Philippines and he spent his last couple of years on exile in Dapitan City. This place is part of history. A very good vacation needs a 1-hour study tour too.
