I was walking from Pundakit Falls last April 2011 when I bumped into Mang Florante, a boatman that I regularly hire when I am in Pundakit. He told me one of the good news for tourists and travellers who wants to go to Capones Island, Camara Island, Anawangin Cove, Talisayen Cove, Nagsasa Cove and Silangin Cove, it is the Standardization of the Boat Rates at Pundakit Zambales.
I am a big fan of Pundakit, Zambales. I have seen its progress from a small fishing village to now a jumpoff to spectacular tourist attractions such as Anawangin Cove, Nagsasa Cove, Talisayen Cove, Capones Island, Camara Island and the water falls that are around the place.
Last weekend was my 10th time on this place. I still could remember my first time in Pundakit last 2006. The tricycle drivers did not mind us as we alight the bus in front of the Municipal Hall of San Antonio. Tricycle fare was just 20 pesos per person and the price for the boat was just 600 pesos if you are going to Capones Island and Camara Island. But as the price of fossil fuel hiked up so did the price for tricycles and boats, but that did not stop the increase in the number of people going to Pundakit.
