HOW TO GET THERE
HOW TO GET THERE
If you have your own car, just find crossing Magpayang going to Mainit or Matin-ao. Look for the sign of “Magpaso Wellness Resort” in junction Mapaso. From crossing, another one km rough-road-drive going to the location of the hot spring.
From Butuan, ride in a bus bound to Surigao City. Tell the driver/conductor to drop you in eskina/crossing Magpayang. There are tricycles and habal-habal for hire in Magpayang. I recommend habal-habal - it can tolerate the rocky and rough road going to the location of the hot spring. Bus fare is P100+ for air-conditioned and much cheaper for non-aircon while hiring of habal-habal costs around P100-150.
From Surigao City, ride in a bus or van bound to Butuan City. There are also multicabs bound to Kitcharao. Tell the driver to drop you in crossing Magpayang.
