Embracing Nature at Mambukal Resort

1st waterfall at Mambukal Resort

It was in February when we first went to Mambukal Resort. From Circle Inn (the hotel where we stayed), we took a jeep and went off at Libertad (7 pesos). And then, we took a non-air-conditioned bus going to Mambukal which costs 35 pesos/pax (one way). Just tell the conductor that you’ll get off at Mambukal. And yes, the bus stops in front of Mambukal Resort.

The travel time from Bacolod to Mambukal is around 1.5 hours. It’s not that long. On the way to Mambukal, you’ll enjoy the scenery of the vast fields of sugar cane and of Mount Canlaon. 🙂

Upon arriving Mambukal Resort, just go inside, and pay an entrance fee of 30 pesos for adults and 10 pesos for kids.

My First Time to Try White Water Rafting in Davao

Waiting for the Briefing

I never knew that I will someday experience white water rafting. Last May 8th, while everybody was busy watching the Pacquiao vs. Mosley boxing match, me and fellow bloggers Rochelle Chua, Evanjohn Mendoza, Faith Salazar, Eric D., Yoshke Dimen, Jonel Uy and Lalaine Orozco and others were having a hell of a time at the Davao River for the White Water Rapid Adventure. Actually, It’s the first extreme sport I’ve ever done in my life and preferred this than going through the zipline.
