Bohol is a very nice place: excellent combination of culture, nature and people. It is easy to get around because you can rent vans or cars for a day and be able to visit several tourist destinations among them: Chocolate Hills, Baclayon Church and Museum, Loboc Church and Museum, lunch and river cruise at Loboc River, a place where you can see tarsiers and take photos with this wonderful creatures.
The drivers/owners of the vans/cars that we rented were very helpful in telling us about the places that we can go to. They were sensitive to cater to what kind of places that we wanted to go. They would even encourage you to go to many places as possible, and they were also very effective guides because they have information and side stories of the places the we visit. You can have a van rental - good for the whole day at P1,800. It's worth it because it's hassle free and you can go to many places .
If you prefer not renting vans, you can also commute, however you need more time for this because they would fill up the vehicle before they bound for any destination. Also, there are several stops before you get to your deestination. we tried this when we went to Loon: it took almost an hour to get ther from Tagbilaran, going back we took a van and just less than an hour we were back to Tagbilaran - commuting doubles the travel time + waiting time for vehicle to be filled.
Food: Sizzling squid at Bohol Tropics is superb! Mani de leche which you can buy near the pier at a factory outlet of peanut kisses is also delicious. They are great for taking home for loved ones.
