P.S. Please forgive me because I slept the whole time my teammates were exploring the beach… Anyway, after Bojo River, we decided to take the extra 2 kilometers to check out Hermit’s Cove, because, according to one of our teammates, it might be long when we can come back..
This is my second time to visit Bojo River, and, if I was impressed the first time, I was more impressed the second time. I was with my team mates and there is, indeed, more fun in the numbers. We availed of the tour package (P650 per head) and it was actually beyond what I expected. Read on for more details.
Last weekend, my team mates and I had an outing. We thought it would be fun to check out the Bojo River tour but we wanted to stay over night in Aloguinsan and the only place we can afford was Hidden Beach. Why it’s called Hidden was pretty obvious when we knew the place is about 5 minutes by car from the main road.
Bojo River is not a unique tourist attraction. There are many river tours in the Philippines and in the world. What made us admire the river cruise is its organization and the profit-sharing between the local government and the citizens who manage the cruise operations. We think the cruise is one of the best examples of how a government can work together with its citizenry to make the best of what a certain place can offer as a tourist attraction and gain from it in the most socially-responsible and environmentally-sustainable way.
