Your day begins with a pickup at around 9am from your centrally located Pangloa or Tagbilaran hotel. Head first for Hinagdanan Cave, about 20 minutes from Pangloa. The cave has about 328 feet (100 meters) of distinct rock formations. The stalactites and stalagmites stick out from the ceiling and floor of the cave as though trying to meet each other. Take a look inside the cave to see a lagoon with a greenish surface produced by the green limestone at the bottom of a pool where people used to bathe. Nowadays, it is not advisable to take a dip into the lagoon because of the karst pollutants present in the water.Back in the vehicle, it's about a 15-minute drive to the Bohol Bee Farm.
