Relaxing Stay in Camiguin at Puesta del Sol Beach Bungalows

Puesta del Sol Room Camiguin

Coming from a whole day of exploring the whole island of Camiguin, you'd probably want to relax your tired body and have a long good night sleep on a big and comfortable bed. A 12-inch thick custom made American queen-size mattress was what has been waiting for us at Puesta del Sol Beach Bungalows.

The owners, who are based in California, give a lot value in keeping the taste of their food authentically Mexican. The kitchen staff were trained to make fresh tortilla while the salsa, guacamole and other ingredients are shipped by the owners directly from the US.

Aside from Mexican food, Puesta del Sol also serve classic Filipino food. Dishes are prepared and adjusted to suit both local and foreign taste. Notice that their adobo is cooked with all pork meat and no fats. Their beef steak (or bistek) is tender and not tough. The serving size is also American which makes them big enough to be shared by two to three people.

The resort staff can also arrange for you a tour to the nearby White Island which is best to be visited during sunrise. The boat will fetch you right at the resort's dock. For breakfast, we highly recommend that you try their American style pancakes which go perfectly with their Starbucks brewed coffee.
