After 7 hours of travel and sort of an "Amazing Race" by taxi, airplane, van, tricycle & boat, I reached Caramoan from Manila. This is the Home of the Survivor TV series. With a string of islands scattered along the area (one of them is Lahos, pictured here), its remote location makes it a great base for the TV series. However, as a local tourist who made an effort to travel I found it frustrating to know that they closed one island I was raring to visit, Sabitang Laya. Anyway overall it was an enjoyable experience and I vowed that I will be back.
Caramoan can be reached either from Naga City (the route that I took) or from Virac, the capital of its neighboring island Catanduanes which should be shorter.
