    not anymore.
    planes travelling to Surigao are very safe considering those are from CebuPac and PAL.
    There is also a weekly direct flight from Cebu to Siargao.

  3. Ronnie says:

    Di kaya nakakatakot ang mga planes coming from Manila? Malalaki na ba? Dati kasi sa Butuan pa kami dumadaan pag gusto naming pumunta ng Siargao. At least mas malapit na kung sa Surigao kami manggagaling.
