Most of the same driving customs apply in Surigao City, but there are some differences with parking that drivers should be aware of. It is recommended to park in paid parking lots or garages. Parking laws are strict, and violation of them can incur high fines. It is forbidden to park on the pavement or near hospitals, schools, and government buildings. Tolls are expensive but worth the price because they lead to more agreeable roads that are easier to drive on.

Be sure to check for updated travel warnings from the Canadian Travel Advice and Advisories before making travel arrangements to Surigao City and other islands in the Philippines. Travel to nearby Mindanao and Davao has been discouraged due to increased kidnappings and terror-related incidents.
