A full day trip to three small islands surrounding Siargao on a typical philippino boat. You will be blown away by the natural beauty of the islands.
Jungle and Mud Cave
A cave with healing mud, bats and protected wildlife species in the middle of the jungle. Jenn a sweet local girl will give us the tour of the area and the cave. Be prepared to break some sweat on this trip as we will hike all the way up to enjoy a magnificent top view of the Siargao island.
Magpupungko Rock Pools
It is like swimmng in Aphroditeas private pools. The pools were created by the everlasting impact of the waves of the Pacific. Eventually the coast gave in and the waves created an unforgetable structure of natural pools with emerald green water.
Freshwater Tayanbang Cave
A local guide will take us through a freshwater cave in the jungle. Be prepared to do some swimming and get a little scare.
Tak Tak falls
A refreshing waterfall embraced by the jungle, where local kids enjoy their days jumping off a tree. Will you have the courage leap of the tree? Come and find out.

SurfSiargao is a becoming and increasingly popular place for the surfers because of the quality of waves and numerous surf spots. It is THE place in the Philippines if you are looking for a fulfilling surfing experience.
PackingDo not overthink it with packing. You will need a few nice clothes/dress for a party here and there, but forget about things such as highheels, as flip flops is all you will need. Other than that pack a few casual clothes and ideally bring a cap or a hat as the sun is quite strong. Do not forget your swimsuit and the sunscreen and keep in mind to leave some space for a souvenier or two.
LaundryThere is a laundry service in General Luna. For 1 euro, you can get most of your clothes washed. They are very good and fast, you bring your clothes in one day and go pick them up the next.
FoodThe island is just waking up in terms of tourism, so do not expect streets full of restaurants, caffés, shops and bars. There are a few, but the real food experience is hidden in the local street restaurants which will amaze you with the quality, price and taste of the food. The more local you go, the better food experience you will get. How to get around locally? Mato and Dada will guide you around.
WaterAs everywhere in asia, you can not drink the water from the tap. You will need to drink bottled water, or water from special water dispensers. Ice is made of drinking water so you do not have to beware old drinks.
PassportYou will need a passport valid at least 6 months from the date of arrival in the Philippines, at least 2 free pages and a printed out return flight ticket out of the Philippines.
YogamatBring with you your yogamat, some yoga clothing and perhaps a small towel. If you are using yoga blocks or any other yoga equipment, be sure to bring it with you.
A happy story of three friends.
This is Shorty, Susan and Froggy. All close and great friends and truly enjoy each others’ company. They all love to travel, get to know exotic places, meet new people and experience extraordinary adventures. They have traveled together before and are used to making compromises. Shorty sometimes has to give way to Susan, another time Susan to Froggy etc..
Shorty is an experienced surfer, but has never tried Froggy’s favourite yoga. Nevertheless Shorty is smart and he is fully aware of how yoga can positively impact him and his surfing. Susan is a just a beginner in surfing, but she really enjoyed yoga and acroyoga classes when she was at home. Froggy does not know whether she will be into surfing that much, but she knows that she is spiritual and that she would love to experience a true asian yoga and come back home as relaxed as can be. If it was only possible for all of them to do what they want and yet travel together without restrictions and too many compromises..
Susan has stumbled upon the yogovibe.com website and is eager to share the great news with the rest of the bunch. She has found an ideal camp CHILLI, where they will experience the beautiful, not yet so touristy island Siargao – also known as Bali 30 years ago – and all their expectations of an ideal trip will be fully fulfilled.
And that is what happened. Shorty finally experienced the relaxation and happiness that yoga can bring. However he did not miss the everyday swell and went out to catch some epic waves. He mangaed to get the first barrel of his life and now he is putting toghether a surf edit. Susan has last surfed almost a year ago, so she decided to start with 2 hours with the instructor first. She realised that surfing is pretty easy to forget when you do not do it too often, so she added another 2, but later she was surfing with Shorty. She knew from her experience that surfing is very physical and that yoga is the best way to relax the body, so she decided to do yoga or have a massage every other day to ease the muslce ache. She decided on the go, depending on how she felt, she could change it anytime. Froggy promised to the crew that she will try surfing, however it was not really her kind of thing, so she enjoyed the everyday positives of yoga and massages. She will never forget the overnight trip to the Guyam island and claims that she has never ever seen so many stars in her life.
They have all agreed that the trip was epic and now they are showing off pictures to their friends and colleagues .. Of course in a friendly manner .. Shorty in the barrel, Susan under the palm tree, Froggy at the beach … But this is the story of these three friends. Pretty sure you don’t want to be only hearing stories like this, so why don’t you come and write a story of your own.
you will definately not be bored
looking forward to meeting you
