We approved the place of, and would highly recommend to visit that place Sports such as whitewater rafting and ziplining are available throughout the country, but this place would give a mental peace and satisfaction amidst your schedule
Cebu Lake is in corner of country providing quite a lot of peace and relaxation though it doesn’t have much to do over there and in our personal opinion if you have to miss a place it is this. The lake doesn’t gives any activity to do in our opinion it would be better to move around the lake than on the lake the islands near it have much more natural sounding birds which would be much enjoyed than the lake itself
The next destination was Mactan. Being one of the major tourist Islands of Cebu, Mactan Island boasts of a diverse collection of tourist spots and attractions. The best thing was that it is to be a coral island. The water attractions in region are one of the best in entire country and also allows deep sea diving. We enjoyed water works the most in this is area. Mactan offers some of the best diving, snorkeling, island hopping, jet ski, sailing activities and are major income source in the region. and cultural activities of any island in the Philippines. We enjoyed the deep sea diving a lot and trust us if you are aquatic life lover you would be happy to know that The only aquarium attraction in the Visayas is also located on the island.

Wildlife attractions: Calauit Safari Park is a game reserve and wildlife sanctuary located in Calauit Island, it is spread in 37 sq. Km. and doesn’t have much to offer but this is the best the country can offer. Though you can always enjoy aquatic life in aquariums and deep sea diving in sea.
The country has lot to offer about water activities wildlife adventure sports excursions and other in the nature activities. The country is neat and clean and is dream destination if you love water. The hygiene and cleanliness is up to the marks the hotels and other facilities won’t let you down and you don’t need to be worried for security in water sports they provide you state of the art safety technology in adventures
What’s not so good:
The countries weather is usually a con in the journey. It is rare if you don’t face any delay in flights, travel in peak seasons though it’s not a deal breaker. Sebu Lake was a dissapointment
The things we don’t like include the wildlife offerings, the transportation is a serious time waste in country you spend 3-4 hours a day in traveling. You don’t get much to do if you don’t like water sports. It’s not the best family destination specially if you travel with kids or elders
