Tinago Falls, Biliran

Tinago Falls Biliran
Biliran has a wide forested area where breathtaking waterfalls are hidden, one of these is Tinago Falls. Its name is derived from a Filipino word “tinago” which literally translates to “hidden” in English. Well, it is not hidden anymore because its beauty already captured the eyes and attention of countless tourists and visitors online. This falls is one of the must-visit waterfalls in Kaibiran because there's an unlimited flow of crystal clear and cool waters, and the pressure of the water falling is perfect for a whole body massage. The ambiance is cool and relaxing. it is surrounded by enormous rocks and boulders with trees on the side.   Other waterfalls in Biliran that can be visited are the Recoletos Falls and Condol Falls.

HOW TO GET HERE: Via air, you can catch a flight with Cebu Pacific or Philippine Airlines to Tacloban City. From the airport, ride a taxi or jeepney to Grandtours (near SM) or Duptours Terminal. The terminals are well-known, so if you're lost, ask the locals, drivers or guards. Then, ride a van bound for Naval. The people in this region are friendly and accommodating.

WHERE TO STAY IN BILIRAN: I stayed at TJ Pensione, one of the cheapest hotels in Biliran and it is situated in the center of Naval; just in front of Jollibee and few meters away from Grand Tours, Van Van’s, UV Express and other transport terminals. TJ Pensione is not like your five star hotels, but they have an organized and clean room and toilet and bath. I spent 475 pesos for an overnight stay in an ordinary room, with a king size bed, cable TV and fan.

BUDGET AND EXPENSES: Van Grandtours from Tacloban City to Naval: 120 pesos. TJ Pensione: 47 pesos. Foods: 250 pesos. Habal tour: 1000 pesos. Environmental Fee: 20 pesos.
