Solo female traveller in Cebu, Bohol and around.

Hello I'm a solo traveller in the Philippines for the past 2 weeks. I'm flying to cebu tomorrow January 9th and was planning on spending my last week around this area.

Can someone give me some advise as where to go from cebu. I would like to do some diving but funds are getting low. I've found it extremely difficult to find dorm accommodation in the Philippines. Is this the case in cebu island and bohol/panglao?

Any advise will help.

You should not check out Sinulog! Unless you enjoy being around an additional 1.5 million tourists and paying double the normal cost for a room, (if you can find one) you should leave on the first ferry to Bohol !!

There is an 8am ferry (P250) that departs daily from Lo-oc, Mandaue, Cebu City. This small pier is located directly below the Old Mactan Bridge, Cebu side. The ferry arrives 4 hours later in Pitogo on President Carlos Garcia Island, Bohol. There is a very quiet "resort" situated on 8 hectares of pristine beach. They are fronted by a 52-hectare marine sanctuary that boasts 27% coral cover. They are not yet set up with diving equipment but have new snorkling sets. The norkeling and swimming are excellent. They have 8 air-con cottages that were P1200 ( in October 2011) on the beach and can even offer huge tents and queen air mattress if you are on a budget. They are located on a barrier island and have no neighbors or thru-traffic. This place is very, very quiet.

They have a reliable boat that can take you to Maasin, Southern Leyte in exactly one hour. From Maasin you are really only minutes away from the diving sites aroung Sogod Bay and Panaon Island.

You will find inexpensive accomodation and diving either in Moalboal, qou vadis has cottages from 800 php, and dives from $24 usd. Or if going to Bohol, Bohol dive resort has rooms starting at 500php right on the beach and dives from $28 usd. Peters place on the other end of the beach associated with genesis divers has rooms from 700php on the beach and dives from 1200php
