 Get around
Transport outside Masbate City is limited to tricycles for short distances and buses for longer distances which make stops at various points along the two lane highway that runs from Masbate City to the western and southern points on the island. Although paved, the condition of this highway at various points may have been allowed to lapse into disrepair, making 4 wheel drive vehicles a more practical option for those who own private cars.

 Stay safe
It should be said that Masbate is an really friendly place to visit. Whilst it may have it's problems politically, these things tend to stay political and do not in any way affect tourists/foreigners. There are several foreign nationals living in Masbate who do not feel threatened in any way because in most cases Masbateneo people are some of the most friendly people you could hope to meet. At the end of the day the maxim "do unto others as you would be done yourself" holds a great deal of truth here. The one big no-no is that you should avoid drugs at all costs, because if you are caught carrying then you can be assured the next 10-15 years of your life will be very uncomfortable. You will have no chance of re-patriation for at least 3 years and it's debateable whether there will be much left of you to re-patriate!
