Although Siquijor is just a small island that some can even manage to tour it in a day I suggest in order for you to fully enjoy what this beautiful island has to offer you need allot ample time to go around the island. Full 3 days and 2nights I believe is decent enough for you to go around the popular tourist spots and even more without rushing things and just enjoy your vacation.

FINAL NOTES:
  • Make your itinerary realistic and doable according to your own interest and travel pacing. Once you have decided what places you want to see, stick with your schedule. Timing is Key and with so much things to do in the island in a very limited time, there is very little room for delay. :)
  • The local dialect in Siquijor is Bisaya, however, majority of the people there can speak and understand English and Tagalog.
  • Make sure you have enough cash with you as ATM is not readily available in the island. Certain towns like Larena and Siquijor has ATM machines however most of it are off line the time we visited there. If youre staying in big resorts credit cards are accepted but not in guesthouses.
  • Best time to travel is during dry season from March to May. However summer months can be very hot so make sure you have enough sunscreen.
I hope this post helped you planned your trip. Thank you for dropping. Happy Travels!
