This famous church dates back to the early Spanish colonial era. The Church was founded by the Augustinian friars since their arrival in 1565. You could also find in the church the miraculous image of Sto. Nino (Child-Jesus).
my ritual in visiting this holy place is to light some candles outside and spend time inside the church for my prayers. i love the feeling everytime i’m here.

This museum looks at local life in the 1800s.
I really loved the place! I like how everthing was well preserved and taken care of. The museum showcased a lot of historical events and facts, and kept the antiques in place. Also, the tour guides were really accomodating and were very knowwledgeable.

The second largest beach on Boracay, this popular destination is also called Puka Shell Beach after the prevalent white seashells.
This is a nearby beach in Boracay. There are two ways to go here: first, you can join the island hopping tour and this is the first stop; second, you can hire a tricycle from white beach to this place. The water is green and the sand is fine. You can survey the place for 10 minutes. This is nice for swimming because it’s not too crowded, plus the green view is amazing! Just paradise!

Must visit while in Cebu - even better than Ayala centre in Manila!! Ayala's point of difference is high quality without jamming as much commercial shops into the property as possible. Instead, they leave space and existing trees and landscape it so there is a large tranquil space, the Terraces, to relax and get away from all the hustle of a big city Great mall shopping and the highlight is the Terraces with space in the shade to relax and enjoy looking at the big trees, shrubs and waterfalls. It has the usual variety of food outlets, national & local.

We spent a fun couple of hours at the waterfalls. Beautiful blue water. We arrived with our scooter, there is parking for them just at the entrance to the falls, parking fee is going by donations, so you pick how much you want to pay, and those guys really watch over the scooters. The entrance fee is normally 10 php, but we got there early so no one was there, we got in for free. There are 3 Tarzan swings, different heights, 50 php for unlimited swings. They are really fun, I was scared before the first swing but you just have to go and after that it was just all fun. Then you can stand under the smaller falls to get a nice shoulder / back massage and just lounge in the water. There are some vendors there, I think they open around 9 to buy some food. We got there around 7:30/8:00 and it wasn't crowded at all, so I would suggest to go early. It's definitely worth a visit!

Simala Shrine tour was really not part of our itinerary, but since my mother can't make a 30min walk to Kawasan falls, we went here instead. As we approach the gate, we were amazed as we see its castle-like facade, with arcaded corridors, aqueduct-like bridge connecting the garden to the shrine. The structure is also PWD-friendly, with ramps placed everywhere. Inside the shrine was a chapel, a praying area where colored candles lit, and a museum where testimonies of healed and answered prayers are kept and displayed. By the way, before going inside, bear in mind that proper attire is strictly implemented. Men wearing sando or tank top with shorts and slippers, and women wearing spaghetti straps, with very short shorts and slippers are not allowed. But if you're already worn shorts, don't worry! There are vendors outside the gate that will let you rent their shawls for Php20! If you're a Marian devotee and for Catholics who are "sagrado katoliko" I really recommend visiting the place. It will make your faith stronger as you see the evidences of the healed and answered prayers, and the people offering candles, roses and prayers to the pictures, portraits and sculptures of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

We really enjoy the raw beauty of the falls . Looking up the falls and the century trees around was very relaxing.

Loved the native chocolate! Entrance is good for a no-time-limit tour after the guide has introduced you to every nooks and crannies of the historical mansion. You can stay as long as you want to enjoy the native chocolate and biscuits. There were also brochures that were handed out for free that you can read while examining closely every antique housewares that are no longer used nowadays. There were displays of various merchandise at the entrance from food to accessories to scarves. I bought two nice beaded necklaces. My friends and I took time chatting while enjoying the picture taking inside the house. A must-visit for lovers of history.
