the good: 3 tanks of nitrox per day of boat diving; incl. dives at Camiguin
island; very spacious resort

the bad: pay for dinner (not included in pkg. but low cost , ~ 250 peso);
transfers not included unless with lg. group;
before left from home, I wish I had known how easy to get from Cagayan
airport to reswort; also saved ~ 2000 peso each way by using public bus
from Cagayan city to Balingoan; taxi would have been 2500
peso fro9m airport to resort.

It is very good value; not lowest cost.
