If you have a lot of questions about the Canyoneering Activity in South Cebu, this post would be helpful as I try to answer all the questions that I had before we did the Canyoneering. In short this is my Cebu Canyoneering Travel Guide.
I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear. – Nelson Mandela @kawasancanyoneering #CebuCanyoneering #Badian #Alegria #SouthCebu #Cebu #Visayas #Philippines #Travel #TravelPh #Adventure #AdventurePh #Courage #BeCourageous
Do note that there are many service providers for the Canyoneering activity in South Cebu but we availed the services of Kawasan Canyoneering since they are a professional group of guides who are based in Badian, Cebu – where the Canyoneering activity is located. You can check out their contact details at the end of this post.
Anyways, here’s the travel guide.
1. Starts at Badian, Cebu
The start and end of the Canyoneering Activity is at the intersection along the highway to Kawasan Falls in Badian, Cebu. Badian is a municipality of the Province of Cebu which is located 3 hours away via bus from the South Bus Terminal of Cebu City. The fare was 120 Pesos/person (one-way).
It is important that you take the Ceres Bus bound for Bato via Barili. Do not take the bus Bato via Oslob as this will not pass by Badian. The earliest trip is at 4 AM. The last Trip is at 6 PM. Bus departure interval is around 30 minutes.
Tell the conductor to drop you off at Kawasan Falls.
A little note, when you go down the bus locals will swarm you but be calm and just walk towards the church and tell them that you need time to think.
You can check out the route in Google Maps here.
Since we availed our Canyoneering activity with Kawasan Canyoneering, our starting point is at Matutinao Beach Resort, which is actually located across the street from the church. We slept here the night before to be sure that we are well rested for the Canyoneering Activity.
If you are doing a day trip you can leave your belongings with Matutinao Beach Resort when you avail the activity with Kawasan Canyoneering.
