Sigaw ng Surigao: Visit Enchanted River and Tinuy-an Falls

The fam and I try to avoid road trips and beach outings during long holidays as much as possible; lest all tourist spots will be jam-packed and we won’t be able to enjoy ourselves. Hub and I even opted for Mt. Pulag over Boracay during one Labor Day weekend, thinking that no one would choose…
