Kawasan Falls - Christmas Cebu Tour Part 5

Image
It has always been a life long dream of mine to actually see a waterfall and I’ve been telling a friend about it for quite some time before it became a reality.
I was able see the Kawasan Falls in all its glory together with my family when we had our Cebu tour last Christmas. 
We had lunch at the known tourist spot and as we dine looking at the people enjoying the falls it did us much good.

The road to the falls was long pleasurable walk though. There are souvenir shops at the beginning of the trek should you wish to buy something. You actually have to cross around three bridges and walk beside the river trail for over 30 minutes or so from the road. You can bring in some food if you want but we decided to dine anyway.

Kawasan is actually an hierarchy of three falls and we stayed in the biggest one which is located at the bottommost part. There are restaurants and rooms you can rent that surrounds the great place. Cottages and tables are also available for rent. With tropical trees and …

Molave Milk Station - Christmas Family Tour Part 4

Image
We have dined at the Adventure Cafe, raced all over the JVR Island in the Sky Resort, for our Christmas Family Tour all over Cebu we sort of made a little roundabout in Carcar for a quick stop over at Molave Milk Station.
Being the only milk lover in the family, I was glad we were able to buy some ice cream and fresh milk at this part of the town. When I sampled their milk it tasted something you would expect from a fresh cow or carabao’s milk. Their cupped ice cream tastes great though. We tried the chocolate, vanilla and the mango in all its homemade goodness.

About Molave Milk Station I was told that it actually is a private farm and the place had these picnic tables and a shop where you could buy dairy products and food ranging from roasted fishes to meats. You cannot enter the farm to interact with the animals but you can enjoy a good view though.

About Barili Barili has always been special to me. The inspiring views from the rolling hills and fields could convert whatever stre…

JVR Island in the Sky Resort - Christmas Family Tour Part 3

Image
There is a little piece of heaven found in Cebu and it looks a lot more like Baguio. Taking the Transcentral Highway that traverses from Cebu City to the rest of Cebu provinces, our family was able to stop by JVR Island in the Sky Resort in Balamban during our Christmas Tour.

But before immersing yourself in in mountain paradise goodness that is JVR, you have to read our previous stop when we had breakfast at the Adventure Cafe not far from where JVR stands.


Anyway, with cool climate and lush perfectly manicured landscaping, JVR Island in the Sky Resort lives up to its name. Welcoming you with an adventurous walk through the wooden bridge, you will be greeted with a relaxing feeling that your family will surely love.

And did I mention that they have cable car rides too?

You are so gonna fall in love with the scenic slopes and cottages you can rent. If we don’t have an itinerary for the rest of the day, we might have stayed for the night. A restaurant stands atop the hill overlooking ev…

Aloguinsan Baluarte Park - Christmas Family Tour Part 2

Image
Note: Read the first part of our Christmas Family Tour

After we have enjoyed Balamban spots like the Adventure Cafe and the JVR Island in the Sky Resort, we headed to have snacks at the great town of Aloguinsan.

What seems to be a rustic town, Aloguinsan is home to a great historical marker known as Baluarte Park. It is located in a beautiful landscaped hill at the back of the municipal hall where old watchtowers used to rise centuries ago.


You could also get a beautiful view of the TaƱon Strait from there.

Awesome Adventure Cafe Experience in Balamban - Family Christmas Tour Part 1

Image
Last Christmas, our family was able to realize the dreams of my father to circle Cebu via the highway which made us celebrate the holidays frugally to fund the great family tour. It was a unique experience for all of us. Never have we imagined that we were able to go to these places together anytime soon. We soon realized that the Transcentral Highway is one of the most scenic highway in the country that everyone should go to. 

We rented a van, hired a driver, brought along lots and lots of food, and even tagged along our aunt, Mama Inday. From our home in the north, we headed down south early in the morning and had breakfast in Adventure Cafe in Balamban.

I have heard so much about it since fellow Cebuano bloggers have spread forth word about the place. It definitely lives up to its name. It offers great food and at the same fun adventurous activities ranging from wall climbing to rappelling, ziplining, and guided tours to caves and water falls.
