Rapitan di Vasay (RDV) --- where you can experience the best of Ivatan hospitality and the best home-cooked breakfast in Basco! I knew I made the right decision even before seeing the place. Inquiries via e-mail were promptly answered by one of the owners, Ms. Yolanda. She is a such a gem! Rapitan di Vasay is a century old house which has been slightly renovated to add modern day basic comforts. The place has retained much of its character though... reminds me of my grandparents home. The location is in the center of town and easily accessible to some of the incredible tourist spots in Basco. The caretakers and Acela (cook) took such good care of us during our stay.
I have been singing praises for Batanes and Rapitan di Vasay since our visit and I can't wait to go back!
