Miscellaneous: Hi! My name is Adelyn, I was in Davao Aug. of 2006 with my son and 2 sisters,waterfront hotel is the best place to stay overnight to book for your trip to pearl farm the next day. The marina is a block a way from waterfront.Pearl farm is awesome, it's quite expensive but, reasonable. It is $90 per person per night which includes 3 meals. If you are in a budget, one night is enough. Believe me it's worth the money. Your experience will be unforgetable. Do the other tours afterwards. By the way, have you been to Siargao? It's paradise. I've been to beautiful resorts like plantation bay,shangrila,marriott, bohol tropics but siargao island is different. Something about that place that haunts you forever esp. after you visited the 3 popular islands,dako, guyam and naked. enjoy and have a nice trip.
