Gumasa: How to get there and some tips

Airport-to-downtown fare should not be more than P300

SARANGANI, Philippines – Travel light. You do not have to dress up and bring your costly gears. After all, Gumasa is a backpacker’s ultimate paradise. Book a flight from your place of origin to General Santos City. There are at least four flights daily from Manila and back and two flights from Cebu on some days.

Taxis at the airport are available. Drivers however are not keen on using the taxi meter, though. Haggle with them. Airport-to-downtown fare should not be more than P300.

You can ask the driver to bring you to the hotel or inn that best suits your taste or budget. Don’t look for 5-star accommodation. There is none yet in the city. 

You can make arrangements with the hotel front desk for transfers to one of the beach resorts in Gumasa. If you are to join the bay festival, an outdoor carry-on portable tent is advisable if you are unable to make prior bookings. – Rappler.com
