How to get from Camiguin to Bohol?

Bohol is a beautiful combination of lush jungles and turquoise waters. It is most iconic for its Chocolate Hills, but you also shouldn’t miss a river cruise through Loboc River. For water activities, head to the white-sand beaches of Panglao, where all island-hopping and diving adventures begin.

Other must-tries include zip-lining, trekking through Bohol’s many waterfalls and caves, and snorkelling. Make sure to catch a glimpse of the Philippine tarsier, one of the world’s smallest primates, which is indigenous to the island.

The best time to visit Bohol depends on which activities you’re interested in, but November to April are generally the cool and dry months.
