Cagayan De Oro, Misamis Oriental: Will's Place - Hotel Review

There are several hotels, pension houses, and places to stay in Cagayan De Oro City, and more developments are transpiring ever since the city has been dubbed as the haven for extreme adventures such as the White Water Rafting. If you're looking for one of the cheapest places to stay in CDO, then Will's Place may definitely suit your travel budget.

Will's Place is located within the city center, in front of City Central School and near CDO Sports Complex, and a jeep ride only going to Agora Terminal. It is just a small pension house, and not as fancy as other hotel accommodations; well, their price rates speak for itself - of course given that prices should also meet comfort and value for money.

Cagayan De Oro To Camiguin: Transportation Options - Getting There

Cagayan De Oro to Camiguin is a more popular route than its vice versa, mainly because there are more plane flights going to Cagayan De Oro than Camiguin. CDO is considered as the business district and central hub of the Northern Mindanao region thus the creation of their recently operated Laguindingan Airport.

There are few plane flight schedules going directly to Camiguin Island, usually from Cebu City through Cebu Pacific Air, but as what I've known, it is more expensive. The facilities of CDO's Laguindingan Airport on the other hand are at par to other main airports in The Philippines, and those definitely are plus factors both for local and international travelers.
