Sikatuna Beach Hotel and San Jose Airport

At last! We landed in our modern home in this Mindoro trip – Sikatuna Beach Hotel.

The first few hours were spent dusting off the sand from our stuff and bathing in freshwater. Our last real shower was more than 72 hours ago so there’s a certain degree of grime that the saltwater cannot wash off. I volunteered to shower last so that I can take my time. Aaaahhh, showering never felt so good!!! I have a whole new respect for freshwater.

Dinner!

Apo Reef Tour – Lighthouse, Mangrove and Pawikan Hunting

It was a fairly easy walk going to the lighthouse. It was drizzling lightly but it wasn’t strong enough to stop us. Climbing the top of the lighthouse is another adventure. If you are not really into heights, you might chicken out while climbing. You can look at the sights of the island even when climbing the stairs.
