We did this trip prior to the start of Hamilo Coast development. We visited some private untouched areas through the coordination of the private guard on duty. We were allowed to camp and explore the place for free... I know the next visit will cost us more... Thanks to Tatay Bayani and his family for the warm accommodation and for touring us around Barangay Papaya beaches.
Some mountaineers actually do a Mt. Pico de Loro - Papaya Beach traverse to add a beacheneering side trip after the mountain trek.
