Inambakan Falls, Ginatilan Cebu, City

As I promised to post our South falls adventures...Here's another hidden place we visited, the Inambakan Falls at Ginatilan, South of Cebu City.
 It was a long travel from City of Naga but it was really worth it. We arrived in an old house where we park the car and walked for almost 15 minutes until we saw this sign...Finally, welcome to Inambakan Falls.

 The place is not yet that developed, they have small cottages for 200php but you cannot stay there for overnight, the cottage is a simple bamboo chair and table.
 It was Sunday when we visited the place but it seems that we were the only tourists there and we so love it. Inambakan Falls was exclusive for our family.
 As usual, my adventurous nephews were with us. They enjoyed it so much, since the water is not deep and they have areas where you can let them swim and play with the water.
 The water was so cold and so inviting...hmmmm...

If you're going to visit the place, you should bring your own food and drinks, because there are no available stores there unlike the other commercialized falls that we've previously visited. Good thing we brought food this time and it was a fun-filled day and another thrifty adventure for the Thrifty Wanderer. So, Inambakan Falls...CHECKED!!!

CAMBAIS FALLS- Hidden Treasure of Alegria, South of Cebu

I've been so busy lately that I was not able to post our Falls adventures. We thought we already conquered the entire South of Cebu, but we were wrong! There are still a lot of hidden gems to discover. Let's start with Cambais Falls of Alegria. We have to travel almost 4 hours just to witness its beauty. We almost lost our way and to see the falls and when we were about to give up a good and very hospitable citizen of Alegria accompanied us to the falls.

 We park our car here and took few pictures for this blog.
 That's Kuya our tour guide. He was explaining something about the land around Cambais falls but my cousins are busy with the pictorial.
 On our way to the falls.
 We passed through this mini forest.
 And again, my adventurous nephews were with us. That's Gian enjoying the walk and leading the team.
 Finally, after that sweaty hiking...

 Enjoying the view...

 We stayed there for just an hour or less because we have to travel back. Plus the fact that the water was so cold at that time, it was a gloomy Sunday by the way.
My brother, cousins and I enjoying the falls.
 We were advised by kuya that it will be a short trip if use the other route.We can reach Cambais through Mantalungon and we were all shocked. We never thought of that. So, we tried the advised route.
 I'm not new to Mantulongan I had a very memorable adventures with friends there.
 We really enjoyed the view; the mountains, the vegetable plantations and the fresh air. Talking about the vegetable plantation, we were all shocked when my cousin suddenly screamed inside the car because she saw a cabbage farm and it was her first time. 
 We bought fresh and super cheap vegetables in one of the community there.
 And since, I'm more familiar with the place than they do; I informed them about this beautiful place. It almost dusk but we spent like 15 minutes to enjoy the view and took some pictures.
 It was a long journey to the South of Cebu but scenic view, the adventures we experienced and the great people we met were all worth it. Cambais Falls of Alegria...CHECK!!!

Mantayupan Falls- Cebu City

I’m was thinking of our adventure last Sunday in one of the falls here in Cebu (and it will be my next post), when I suddenly remember our Easter Sunday adventure at Mantayupan Falls.

Yes, you read it right, last Easter (hahaha!) Just want to share our half day adventure. It was a rainy Sunday when we decided to visit the said falls. Actually, my cousins went there a week prior to our visit and I don’t want to miss any of the adventures so I persuaded them to go back (with selfish motive of course. LOL!) 

Mantayupan falls is somewhere to the east end of Carcar-Barili, South of Cebu.

It was kinda crowded when we arrived and we just took few minutes dip into the water, went up soaking wet and walked our way to AC Tilapia Fun Fishing. You just  have to pay for the entrance, rent a fishing rod and voila! can go on fishing right away. To be honest, I did not enjoy it much because the fishes were not hungry I guess they’re not eating our baits and if you capture a small fish they’ll return it to the pond, but being with my cousins was so much fun. Not to mention I caught not a big fish but a big bamboo stick. So sad that I can't show you my pic.

After an hour of attempting to fish and trying to be fishermen, we just decided to buy fish so that we can eat. 
So another thrifty falls-south adventure for Miss Blue.
Mantayupan Falls...CHECK!
