I am heading to Escalante and was wondering if it is safe to do so? Would also like to know where to visit in this reigon as a tourist. Any other tips would be great aswell.
Thankyou. just learning how to use this site.
Esacalante was infamous for the massacre that happened in 1985. It was political and deadly. Unless you plan to do political activism in the area, then the place would be safe for you. I have used their roro port for the travel between cebu and negros and did not experienced any negative event even when i have to sleep in the car at night while waiting for the first trip of the roro vessel to cebu island.
Thanks for your info. It was very helpful.
escalante is quite safe...JOMABO is an island off escalante with white sand and crystal clear water... its a 15 minute boat ride away from barcelona port
