Beach Placid Resort, Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island
Getting to Bantayan Island, Cebu
We arrived at Mactan International Airport a little over 9:30AM. After picking up my backpack and battling my way amid the sea of passengers, I moved on to the lobby where I met the rest of the crew: Lancy, Kat and Louie.
