Cebu Escapades 2016

It's been 2 weeks since my last Cebu trip and my body is still sore. It goes to show how much I enjoyed my Cebu trip despite the bruises from my legs.

Organizing a trip was no easy feat for me since my friend and me included were tight fisted. In addition to being tight fisted we have no experience on how to travel. Since its our first trip as a friend I opted for travel guide because: one, we get to visit the tourist spot seamlessly; two, time-constraint; and lastly - AIRCONDITIONED VAN!

Our flight to Cebu was delayed by one hour so we arrived Cebu City during rush hour and let me tell you it wasn't love at first sight! The traffic was terrible even getting transportation was difficult. But nevertheless we are looking forward to our South Cebu Experience.

See you Cebu!

We woke up at 2 am, still groggy from sleep we went to South Bus Terminal to buy our tickets to Badian. Since we need to be in Badian before 7 am we have no choice but to choose the ordinary bus and boy we are flying through the Cebu at the speed of light.

We arrived at Badian earlier than usual so we stayed at 7 11 for few minutes until we decided to go to Dolor's Homestay to catch some zzz. Ms. Ivy personally went to Dolor's Homestay to welcome us in Cebu and give to us our itinerary for the whole duration of our stay in South Cebu.

First on our list is Pescador Island Hopping. We started late because of fatigue and we are waiting for our boat to get ready so we took shot around our waiting area.

Then we are now on our Pescador Island Hopping!

Yep! That's the island. We weren't able to step on it though.

Pescador Island has a lot to offer! There's Turtle Bay Area and Sardines Bay.

It was a fun filled day not to mention it was only before noon! We headed back to the mainland to have our lunch at their nearby resort and to take a lots and lots of pictures.

We went back to Dolor's Homestay to rest and refresh. By 3:30 pm we were getting ready for Osmeña Peak. They said Osmeña Peak is beautiful during sunset.

For dinner, we went to nearby carinderia.


We don't want to leave Cebu without at least visiting the famous butandings!

We also visited the Sumilon Island and it was a paradise!

Lunch along the road, then we bought chicaron!

Highblood alert!
Next on our trip is the chasing waterfalls. We only visited two waterfalls - The Binalayan Falls and the Inambakan Falls. We are supposed to go to Tumalog Falls but at that time there is no water in Tumalog.

The next day we have a canyoneering at Algeria, Badian! Let me tell you it was not easy! I sustain big bruises and it was not a pretty sight. However, I did enjoy this extreme adventure.

Next time I'll come back to Cebu to visit North Cebu. No adventure - total relaxation.
