My Cost Report in Traveling to Baler, Aurora

Baler, Aurora is a popular place when it comes to surfing. If you are into this endeavor, then Baler is just the right place for you. It is also one of the  best place to those travelers who wish to relax by the sea. Some resorts in Baler are now being developed and you can expect more places to stay in the months to come once you go to Baler. There are several inns available in Baler where you can pay for as low as 400 to500 pesos a day depending on your budget need. You only have to cruise around the place and you will find more affordable inns.

But in my case, I checked in to Aliya Surf Resort. The room is quite bigger and is good for 3 persons. It is installed with air-condition and cable T.V. Each room has its own bathroom. The resort has a free wi-fi internet connection, but you have to go outside so you will have a good connection. One of the staffs there said that Aliya Surf Resort is just more than and a half year in operation. On the upper view deck is where the band performs every Friday. There's a garden in the middle of the resort, a hammock and seats to relax facing the shore where you can watch the surfers, the sea or simply indulge yourself to drink some beers, juice or coffee. Check inn time is at 2p.m. and check out is as 12 noon. If you have a budget, this resort is just the right place for you that is worth staying for. Amiable staffs who are always ready to serve you.

How to Go to Baler

If you live nearby places in Quezon City, you can go to New York, Edsa, Cubao where Genesis Bus Transport  is just within the vicinity. Traveling time is approximately 6 hours or more. In order for you not to miss the trip, you have to be there as early as 3 or 4 a.m. The last trip is at 7 a.m.

Once you are in Baler, tricycles are available at a cost of 15 pesos only. You'll arrive the beach in 10 minutes time. I believe that the only mode of transportation other than the bus are tricycles.

So here are the summary of the expenses I have incurred in going to Baler, Aurora:

Genesis Bus Transport (2-way at 418 pesos one way)    Php  836
tricycle expenses                                                                      50
Food and drinks                                                                     800
Aliya Surf Resort for 2 days (1500 per day)                           3000

TOTAL EXPENSES:                                                    Php 4686

I have rounded off the amount nearest to the whole number, and as you can see, going to Baler isn't quite expensive but once you are in a group travel, your expenses will be minimized.
