In case of serious accidents or emergencies, sophisticated medical care is available in Cebu, about three hours away by helicopter. The flight itself takes approximately one hour and fifteen minutes, but the helicopter must first come from Cebu.

TRAVEL INSURANCE

Not compulsory

For peace of mind, Wayfarers Atlas recommends travel insurance that includes medical evacuation. Let us organize this for you.

THINGS THAT BITE

Mozzies can be found in paradise too.

While there is no malaria in Siargao, dengue fever, an occasionally fatal disease spread by mosquitoes, is a remote risk. While cases of infection are rare and reportedly limited to the north of the island, there is no vaccination against dengue fever, which is generally contracted during or just after the wet season. Conscientiously protecting yourself from mosquitoes is the best safeguard against infection.

Refer to the World Health Organisation or the US CDC for information on Mosquito-borne and other insect-borne diseases.
