Caramoan Islands, a popular location of the reality show Survivor, are geographically situated in the the far eastern end of Camarines Sur in Bicol region.  It is known for its beaches, striking limestone cliffs and caves of Caramoan National Park. Island-hopping runs from Gota Beach to islands like tiny Lahos, where the beach, between two rock clusters that disappears during high tide.

When we decided to explore Caramoan, we tried to travel by train. It was when the legendary PNR (Bicol Express) Long Distance Train was still operational back in 2012.  Basically, we traveled to Caramoan by train from Makati then we traveled back to Makati by Airplane. Thank you very much for the PISO fare of the yesteryears when a budget-friendly travel adventures were still economically friendly.  Nowadays, travelling by bus from Manila to Naga seems to be the cheapest.
