Hello Bacarra, get a stop over at Bacarra on your way to Pagudpud. It is worth visiting. It's historical belltower is outstanding, the tallest in 18th century. How about riding a raft at the Co-ca river, a man-made river built 230 years ago. Or visit the sandy beach of Natba where the ruins of the Vijia Watchtower still stands , a more that 400 year old watchtower. have fun this summer!!!
