It was an early call time of 3 AM when sixteen CBS Bloggers gathered and waited for our ride to the beautiful island of Logon. We knew we would be away from our Home for two days and we thanked this affordable Inn that welcomed and catered us and became our home for the weekend. Situated in the Southern part of the island, Malapascua Budget Inn (MBI) is an affordable and wise choice to stay in one of Cebu's best northern islands. This affordable hostel is just 4-5 minutes walk to the Bounty Beach, center of Resorts and Beaches in Malapascua Island and most especially near the Public Market.

Our weekend in Malapascua Island started with a homy breakfast prepared by the Hostel Owner himself. It was not that grand but good enough to be welcomed and felt home away from home.The amazing Malapascua Escapades with Cebu Bloggers commenced with the Island's familiarization and a mini-Islet Hopping. If you were there lately, you noticed that Yolanda's evidences of distruction are still there. But personally, Nature's treasures are still there. White sands stretching every seashores of the island. Hospitality of the Locals that warmth every Tourists and Visitors in the island. Various Resorts that offer different water sports and activities. I say, Malapascua Tourism is coming back to normal.
