Bangka ride from Bantayan to Malapascua for 2000 php


Currently on Bantayan island at the anika island resort (best resort on the island in my opinion) and the resort offered me the ride for 2500php. Tonight I asked a tricycle driver who tried to get us on his tricycle if he knew anyone. He said 2500 also but I asked for 2000 php and he said ok.

My question is should I feel safe going with these street drivers or should I stick with the resorts contacts? We have been here 2 days so far and we feel pretty safe even outside the resort...

I also wonder whether I should bargain down to 2000 with the resort to see if they accept.

Thanks as always guys!

Best you stick with the contacts supplied by the resort.At least you know you have some recourse if there is a problem.

If you take someone in street at random, you never know who they are or if they have criminal records or links.

There is nothing wrong with haggling over price if you can.
