WINKEND ADVENTURES: Cebu

 

You can’t do a good job if your job is all you do. At Wink, we know that the best ideas are sparked outside the four corners of our desk or studios. Our team believes in getting out there to see, explore, move, create and become.

TELL US ABOUT YOUR RECENT TRIP TO CEBU. WHO ARE YOU WITH?

I went to South Cebu with my college friends recently, and it was definitely one for the books! It was our first trip outside Luzon, and we have been planning it for almost a year!

WHAT ARE THE PLACES WERE YOU ABLE TO VISIT? WHICH ONE IS YOUR FAVORITE?

We went to Osmeña Peak, Moalboal, Pescador Island, Badian, Kawasan falls, Sumilon Island, Oslob, and Tumalog falls. The highlight of our trip (and my favorite) was Canyoneering at Badian. It was a 4-5 hour activity that requires you to jump 20ft cliffs/falls. I'm so glad that I have a group of friends who are down for some adrenaline pumping adventures.

ANY TIPS FOR THOSE WHO WILL BE GOING TO THE SAME SPOTS YOU'VE BEEN?

The most important tip that I can't stress enough is getting there early! When we went to Oslob for Whale Shark watching, we didn't expect the number of tourists who would be there on a weekday. Find a trusted, local tour operator if you're planning to do Canyoneering. The tour guides are well-trained (safety first), and super friendly! They even insisted on taking our group pictures and videos for our travel video. Don't forget your action camera with floating poles, and don't bring your mobile phone with you.
