I will not beat around the bush, getting to Caramoan is really time consuming and will test your patience. After the long wait, all I can say is, you will have no regrets that you have reached a far flung area best kept by Camarines Sur... the Caramoan Peninsula.
It's a long trip but let's make it short =D. NCD was in Caramoan last March 3 and 4, 2012.
From Naga City, if you're a commuter, the fastest that can take you to Sabang Port is a FilCab Van with a fare of Php 100.00 for at least 1 and a half hour or less. Terminal is right across SM City Naga. If you have a car, then you can drive to Sabang port. There's a place there where you can park your car for a few days at the port, I just don't know if there's a payment, maybe there is.
Towns that you'll be passing by: Pili, Ocampo, Tigaon, Goa, San Jose, Sabang
From Sabang Port, the transpo will now be a water vessel aka banca. Travelling time will be approximately 2 hours depending upon the water current. Fare is Php 120.00. Enjoy the sea side trip with a lush green scenery on the left and blue waters on the right side. It's best to take the first trip which is 5:00 am, especially if you have a limited time of stay in Caramoan. Last trip going to Caramoan (but I'm not a hundred percent sure) is around 1:00 pm.

After almost 2 hours riding the waves of the sea, you'll now reach Guijalo Port,
this is the same port for the RoRo

And now you have set foot to the land of Caramoan :)
