Overnight at Kookoos Nest Resort



  1. hi. im planning to go to apo island too. could you please give me the contact number of dive society? will be travelling there alone this holy week and im quite apprehensive if there will boats travelling during those dates.

    thanks a lot,

  2. i’m sorry but i didn’t get their number. it just so happen that i stayed at el dorado resort that i was able to join the dive boat there. try contacting el dorado resort. they have a website.

  3. Hi po!

    Ask ko lang kung ano included dun sa Apo Island Tour P460 c/o Dive Society? Kung me rental nabang kasama dun sa gamet pang-dive or snorkel? Or etc?

    Nde ko pa kasi natatry mag-Apo island Tour to think sa Bangcolutan lang ung province namen, i think 5-10 mins drive from Bangcolutan to Malatapay. Thanks po.. =)

  4. btw, my bf and i we’re planning to go to Coron Palawan this coming January. Nakuha ko na lahat ng info para sa DIY Coron from your very helpful site. And baka kumuha kame nung tour packages mo.. I’ll let you know nalang po

    thanks so much =)

  5. selosa, boat lang yun, wala pang gamit… nagkataon kasi na sa el dorado ako naka-lodge kaya naka-avail ako sa dive soceity ng boat trip.

    yung motorbike rental, sa dumaguete city mismo, madami.

    sa nov 29 to dec 1, punta uli ako at may mga kasama na ako, para sa isang DIY Dumaguete naman…. you may want to join us… the more, the cheaper! and more fun!

    until then.

  6. hi owen..

    im planning to have a DIY Dumaguete for next year, together my son ZEUS and hubby Edward March to be exact.

    Im planning to have a Land tour and Apo Island tour din..

    kaso i dont have any ideas pa…could you please help me…



    • hi rhona,

      the cheapest way around would be by renting motorbikes. although you have to be careful driving it. another cheap way around is to rent multicab.

      the boat to apo island have a public boat but it usually leaves in the morning or it’s a very irregular schedule. therefore, you are forced to rent your boat there.

      send me an email at diycoron@yahoo.com and will try my best to answer your questions.
