AGUINID FALLS Samboan, Cebu

Aguinid Falls is located in the town of Samboan. Guides are waiting at the fall entrance. The falls has few levels, from level 0 to level 5. When we’re there, we only walked to level 2 because we’re only have less than an hour to enjoy the water. Going up to the next level is quite a risk but for sure it’s a lot of fun. You need to climb to the rocks with running water to go to the next level.

TUMALOG FALLS Oslob, Cebu

Tumalog Falls is one of the new tourist attractions in southern Cebu. I like how the water falls, it’s not the same with other water falls I had seen before. The pool is not deep which is not ideal for swimming but it is fun to be under the water drops. It’s like a massage. Good location for family adventure. Kids, Teenagers, and adults will enjoy this place.
