Biga Pit: Toledo City’s Captivating Man-Made Wonder

When I learned that the Cebu Motor Adventure Ride was going to make a stop in Toledo, I was very excited. Although Toledo is very accessible (and quite near,) I never really had a chance to fully explore it. I’m sure it has a lot to offer and it’s a shame that the places that […]

Liki Spring: Discovering a New Gem

I turned left towards the long lonely road which connects the towns of Borbon and Tabuelan. I don’t know why I did exactly, as my original plan was to head straight to the City of Bogo and look for new things to feature. But just like most of my travels, I ended up NOT doing the […]

Calasa Falls: An Accidental Discovery

After my stop in the quiet little town of Boljoon (Ili Rock Viewing Deck) and a quick lunch in Oslob, I was on my way to the town of Moalboal for some much-needed swim. The trip was going to be a long one as Moalboal is basically eight towns away. And I was certain that I’d be […]

Canlaob Falls: A Beautiful Rediscovery

It was just an hour past noon. It was muggy and uncomfortable and the mid-day sun was blazing. But the trail was slowly growing darker. My shoulders felt heavier and the bag on my back seemed like a gigantic boulder. I stopped under a small tree and sat down, hoping that the dizziness would go […]

Crazy for Binaliw Spring

Whenever I travel to the northern end of Cebu, I always make it a point to stop at one of my most favorites places in the whole island. (I’ve already blogged about this place twice before here and here.) It doesn’t have well-manicured lawns or neatly arranged picnic tables or fine, white sand. To tell you the […]

Rediscovering Tabogon’s Guiwanon Spring

It was already three in the afternoon when I decided to go ahead and locate the Guiwanon Cold Spring of Tabogon. I was at this small road-side store somewhere in Catmon eating a quick snack when the idea came to me.  As I was trying to remember all my options, I remembered a spot that I’d visited […]

Kugtong Spring: In Plain Sight

On my way to Moalboal, I suddenly felt the urge to explore the town of Alcantara. To be honest, the only places I’ve visited in Alcantara are their town church and the Boardwalk Zoo. And I’m pretty sure they have a lot more to offer. So, since I was already in the area, I thought, why […]

Kabutongan Falls and Late Afternoons in Malabuyoc

After weeks of research and several failed attempts, I was finally able to locate Malabuyoc town’s Kabutongan Falls. Kabutongan Falls is one of Southern Cebu’s most hidden waterfall systems. Unlike its more popular counterparts, Kabutongan is a bit difficult to find and even more difficult to conquer. But I didn’t know these things before my […]

What Happened to Cambuhawe?

Many years ago, I was able to visit the Cambuhawe Springs in Balamban. I remember that there were numerous springs in the area and one (or two) of them fed a gigantic swimming pool. The water from the pool then flows straight towards a shallow brackish body of water which also flows towards the sea. Two weeks ago, […]

Two Hours in Aranzana’s Springs

I reduced my speed to 50 as soon as I entered the town of Malabuyoc. It took me approximately 3 hours to get here from the city. Not sure about the exact address of Kabutongan Falls, I kept an eye out for any road-side signs which could help me locate it. Near the town center, I […]

Dau Falls: An Experience Like No Other

Still wet from my short adventure in Binalayan Falls in Barangay Bonbon, I got on my bike and drove towards the direction of Barangay Suba, Samboan. My guide in Binalayan had said that the drive to Dau would be quick so changing into a dry pair of shorts wouldn’t make sense. And I agree. True […]

Joining the #CelosiaSelfie Craze

So, today, I did something ‘different.’ I got a half-day leave from work and drove all the way to the highland barangay of Sirao. If you’re thinking that I wasted 4 precious office hours to accomplish something monumental like joining a feeding program or planting trees in the Butuanon Watershed, then you’re wrong. I travelled a total […]

The Three Drops of Binalayan

When I saw a sign posted on a tree by the side of the road, however, I was like, “Why the heck not? I’m already here!” So I got off the highway, drove a few meters to a group huddled around a small store, and asked for directions. So, it turned out that the ‘store’ […]

Montañeza Falls: Malabuyoc’s Hidden Gem

The great thing about driving a motorbike when traveling is that you can stop wherever you want, whenever you want. A few weeks ago, I was looking for a particular waterfall in the town of Alegria. And although I did not know exactly where it was located, I decided to not ask around and try to locate it […]

Finding Ronda’s Lapnis Spring

That’s it! This spring they call Lapnis just doesn’t want to be found! I give up! Like my first 3 tries, there was no one in the area who could point me in the right direction. Still, I decided to continue driving and look for the coconut trees near the ‘turn.’ I realized that there […]

Falling for Lusno Falls

To tell you the truth, finding Ronda’s Lusno Falls wasn’t easy. Alegria’s Cambais Falls was hard, but Lusno really takes the cake. Although Lusno Falls is located in Ronda, a lot of people that we asked on our way swore that it is in Argao. In fact, the road-side sign which tells you where to make a […]
