Donsol – Hernandez Lodging House

Both the Santiago and Hernandez guest houses at the jeepney corner in Donsol are good budget places to stay for the backpacker.

It is just a short walk to the market and a 15 peso tricycle ride to the tourist center in the mornings from where the boats leave to look at the whale sharks.

The one thing that the Hernandez has is a sweet little monkey in a cage on the patio.

Their restaurant serves pretty good food and it’s a comfortable place to grab a cold beer and sit at one of the tables on the sidewalk.

Update – I have since stayed at the Hernandez and  found it to be an excellent value!

Giddy’s Place is a new addition to the scene in Donsol. They have the best food in town, wi-fi, and a pretty mellow bar.

Snorkeling with the whale sharks in Donsol is an unforgettable experience! The months of February and March are high season but they will be there at other times too.
