    for sure: improving the offices... new tiles, sofas and AC for the Officers instead improvement in the Patients rooms... One of the reasons, why I don't be a member in the SIIC and stopped my membership in the Rotary Club...

    Hmmm, is that the truth? Why I have informations from guests personally (and you find this in several Internetportals), that they don't offer e.g. philippino breakfast, don't make any move to transfer guests to the pier (even not a phone call), that they have the feeling to disturb the silence while going to a restaurant or other facilities, that every single service is charged, brown water sometimes coming from the water lines or, much better, no water, wrong or not enough information from "service" personell, always everything "out of stock"... Better I stop, before I scare upcoming guests...

    Question: so it`s OK for you, that the foreigners make the money and keep the locals outside any additional business? No chance for the locals on their own island? Strange...

    So doing wrong is OK, the others do as well... Sorry, not my way!

    The Philippines have defenitely not the best name; so why there is no kompetent working together? We have first to compete the World, before we compete each other!

    Hey, you always have a choice, if you don't like it you can always leave. However, I do admire your cynicism though, a man after my own heart in this country.

    Call it "cynicism"; I call it just the hurting "real truth", most people don't or don't want to see through their pinkish glasses! And why running away? Even I'm married to a Philippina (which can see the truth as well right know...): I came her because of the fascinating nature, especially U/W, only.

    My plans were destroyed once of a despot on the island. But in the same time, he grow up an enemy, which has learned from his parents and grand parents (all WW2 affected) not to keep the mouth closed... What than happens, you could see from 1933-1945 in Germany. Question: where is the difference to the Philippines today?

    Back to topic: white, sandy beaches are a couple to find in the Municipality of Maria; unexplored and really nice. Often not shown by Resort owners; maybe again afraid of "competition"?...

    Haha, I have the same problem. I have a lot of fun teasing though. LoL Isn't there one that mimics a baby's cry to draw people into the woods as well (Chanak?)? I think it is good luck to catch but you have to walk a certain way (backwards with your head between your legs? I think this either confuses it, or makes it laugh so hard it can't run away. LMAO) to catch it.

    Thought it might be prudent to let the dust settle a little before I replied. Lots of people who come to Siquijor island, often suffer disappointments, especially in business. Be it of their own making, or by their attitudes to people on this island, also the locals' (of all social classes) perception of 'outsiders', especially by their unusual behavior & outbursts.
    Additionally, I didn't actually know that anyone in Siquijor was fighting the Nazi's, a long time ago.

    Back to topic: please enlighten us, with the really nice beaches in Maria, I'm very interested. Being a local resort owner, I'd love to help the local tourism authority, who obviously don't know their own island.

    No, I've learned my lesson and to help especially the (sorry) "so named" local tourism authority is light years away to deserve any help from me/our company. Just go there by yourself: you can't miss them! By the way: I had to find them by myself as well; after a "secret hint" from an other resort owner and a local Expat in San Juan...

    Yes, that is possible with Montenegro shipping-lines leaving Dumaguete 6:00 pm. (don't know the cost)

    I saw scooter pretty adventures tight up on Ocean Jet but heard rumors that they stopped that.

    Default boat to siquijor

    went to the pier and delta is a boat company offering transport to siquijor. transport of an xr costs 250 and a wave is 200. probably one way only.

    departure everyday at 1200 and 1400 and it takes one hour.
