    In 2020 we planned our second trip to the Philippines…Siargao, Bohol and Cebu!

    • Hi Chris, I have not been to Siargao since 2019 so I am unsure of the aftermath of the typhoon. I would suggest reaching out to some local Siargao pages on facebook and Instagram to get an inside scoop. Sorry I cannot be of any further help. I hope you have a great Siargao tour!
