One of the most impressive places to put on your Cebu itinerary is a visit to Casa Gorordo, a classical Spanish colonial style home of a wealthy family from Cebu. I love to visit colonial period homes and this historic home that is still being used by the Gorordo family is well-preserved and was built in the 1850s. The gorgeous stone home was the official residence of the first Filipino bishop of Cebu and a wealthy merchant. I loved the self tour with audio guide and you can take your time to visit the elaborate rooms as you like and even relax in a comfortable veranda or the amazing café below the gift shop.
Here, you’ll find buses and minibuses headed to the different municipalities and cities in North/South cebu tours. A person with a temperature above 37.6 degree celcsus and exhibiting influenza like illness such as fever, cough, colds and sore throat shall not be allowed to join the tour. We might have temporarily stopped operation but we made sure that we will be ready to bounce back and offer a safe, seamless and enjoyable experience to our guests.
Quite a mixed bag of curiosities and quirky interests, just like myself. You can easily get to Cebu flying from the capital city of Manila. There are many carriers that fly directly to Cebu which is around an hours flight from Manila. Cebu is also a direct hub from many other Asian cities that you can easily fly to with various regional and international carriers.
You have given an exhaustive and useful itinerary, if I ever do plan to visit Cebu. Visiting Cebu is great when you have more than 3 days and I love to include people in native dress or in the environment to show a sense of people and place. Here are some more Trip Advisor reviews of special places on Mactan Island for current prices and calendar. After a delicious and satisfying meal, I decided to head back to Mactan Island and check out the local outdoor farmers market and dine al fresco around the area of the Lapu Lapu Shrine. Kawasan Falls is a popular three-tiered waterfall located in the town of Badian. It features clear turquoise-colored pools surrounded by a serene and lush landscape.
It’s also important to note that most of the tagged sharks that have died during the past few years have died in international waters. You’ll also find really nice vans and private transport vehicles all over Cebu. The cost for a private transfer from Cebu to Moalboal is roughly 1500 pesos for a one-way trip. If you have trouble finding a driver who wants to do the long trip, I recommend checking 12Go. These buses are also quite cheap at around 120 PHP ($5.85 USD) for the 2-hour ride to Moalboal from Cebu.
Cebu Travel Agency is organizing tour packages in Cebu for more than 18 successful years. Bask in the sun in the nearby waters of Mactan or head the north in Bantayan Island or to Moalboal and Oslob in the south. Make your way to Osmeña Peak or Sirao Peak for breathtaking views of the city. Go downtown for some history lesson or find the most happening places in the city’s uptown area.
One of the main pilgrimage functions for a favorable visit is to climb the 81 steps to the main temple, light joss sticks and have their fortune read by monks. For non devotees, its fantastic to just walk around the see the many little temples and take photographs of the city below and just enjoy the cool breeze up in the hills. On of the top attractions to visit in Cebu is the Cebu Cathedral in the historic district. An ornate classic colonial Spanish style church, Cebu’s Cathedral is very typical with thick walls to make the interiors cooler and more solid to hurricanes and other natural elements. Damaged by the Allied forces, the façade, belfry and walls remained and were quickly reconstructed in the 1950s and later expanded with current renovations to the cathedral.
