The island is yours to enjoy. You are highly encouraged to walk around the village to immerse with the community or to ask one of the local fishermen to take you out with them when they go on their daily fishing trips. Or you may hire a local motorbike to take you to the town center. The elementary school is about a 20 minute walk from the resort and you will always be warmly welcomed by the teachers and students. Feel free to share your stories or add your knowledge to each days lessons.
The Ticao Island Resort team believes that travel is about experience. And part of experiencing a country is meeting the locals, trying local food, and sharing in everyday lives. More importantly, the Ticao Island Resort team gives full respect to the island and the people that have so warmly accepted us and we wish for the benefits of tourism to spread to the villagers without spoiling their culture and their personhood.
For those interested in a 4 day 3 night home stay experience where you will have the chance to fit yourselves in the everyday lives of the locals, please CONTACT US.
