from manila, take the buses bound to laoag. their price ranges are similar, around 650-850pesos/pax. i highly recommend the partas buses. however, their restaurant stopovers are not satisfactory, so just bring your own food/snacks. travel time is from 9-10 hrs.

from laoag, i recommend the buses bound to cagayan (they seem to be more sturdy) and cheap (60-70pesos/pax), rather than the ones bound to pagudpud (80-90pesos). warning: there are no aircon buses to cagayan/pagudpud. but feeling the warm breeze is part of the adventure, right? anyway, the air is far more fresh than the one you've been inhaling for quite some time. travel time is from 1 and 1/2 - 2 hrs max.

ask the driver/conductor to drop you off at the waiting shed just before the pagudpud marker. its in the highway.

once there, call or text me-an, so she can have manong joseph pick you. then its gonna be a short tricycle ride to polaris, about 5-8 mins (15-25pesos/pax).

manong joseph can also be your tour guide, driver and bodyguard around pagudpud, with his reliable tricycle as your means of transpo. he charged us 600 for a whole day trip of pagudpud.
