Getting to Bohol
To get to Bohol you can get the ferry from Cebu or Dumaguete. In Dumaguete we advise you to go around the corner to this place to buy your ocean jet ticket ( the left red started dot). No queue, no drama!
It costs about 700-800 pesos per person but you are in a aircon seating areas with set seats and a movie. To us it’s worth it!
The ferry from Bohol back to Cebu cost us 500 peso per person, 150 peso for a bag, 20 peso terminal fee.
The ticket office is just outside of the port and looks like this
Tagbilaran is the area where most backpackers stay.

Luxury– Henann Resort– this is £££ a night but if you walk round to the beach side, they let you drink in the bar and if they aren’t looking, jump in the pool!
