Accommodation in Siquijor
Siquijor is becoming a favorite destination because it offers a laid back island vibe that is sadly being lost in many other places in the Philippines.
Subsequently, there are loads of places to stay in Siquijor. This guide only covered a few of the very best resorts in Siquijor. If you’re traveling on a budget or don’t want to spend a lot on your Siquijor, the island offers various options.
San Juan is the popular tourist area in Siquijor. As a result prices are higher. A good alternative is to book an accommodation in Lazi. You’ll find a couple of restaurants there. And accommodation is significantly cheaper than San Juan. You’ll also be close to the island’s best waterfalls.
For accommodation we always use Agoda because its easy to search for accommodation within our price range.
Compared to other islands in the Philippines, Siquijor is a relatively small island. But, by no means is it so small that you can walk to all the tourist spots. Sure, if you stay in a Siquijor beach resort in the main tourist town San Juan, Tubod beach will be right on the doorstep and you could walk to a few places like Paliton beach for sunset and Lugnason Falls.
However, it doesn’t matter where you stay on Siquijor, you’re always going to need some way of getting yourself to certain tourist spots.
The best way to move around is with your own scooter. There are many rental places in San Jose or you could ask at the resort or hotel when you arrive in Siquijor. Scooter rentals start from around ₱300 (€5) a day.
If you want to enjoy the fun of exploring a tropical island on 2 wheels but you’re not comfortable riding your own scooter, then why not rent a scooter with driver. Sure, this will cost around ₱1000 for the day but you won’t be missing out on the fun.
Tricycle/Car with Driver
An option which is great for groups is to rent a car, or for extra fun, a tricycle with driver. This option allows you to explore at your own pace without any need to worry about parking. The base price for tricycles start from around ₱1500 (€25) and cars cost around ₱3000 (€50).
