Here we go again!!! It’s adventure time on a sunday. On the saturday night, a night before, as the team is doing regular weekly meetings for the purposes of getting drivers and guide’s feedback on our tours to find ways to improve our services most especially how they handle our guests, problems and issues they have encountered during the week and all, Boss Jeths decided to start expanding the scope of our tours. Instead of just focusing the tour packages to south side of Cebu, primarily tour packages with whale shark watching, sumilon island, kawasan waterfalls, canyoneering in Alegria-Badian and moalboal island hopping he said “it’s now time to go to the north side of the province”. Since he will never allow us to publish a tour package or adventure that we ourselves haven’t tried, he then schedule an adventure trip on a sunday, the following morning, for the whole team.
It is around 9:00AM in the morning when we left cebu city to go to Danasan Eco-Farm in Danao where the different adventures he plans to try and promote is located. After approximately 60 minutes of travel on the national highway, we then turned left going to a smaller road that is connecting to municipality of Astorias, Cebu. The road were not so busy since its a sunday, so we arrived at the corner going to the eco-farm earlier than usual days. We all did our homework after the meeting to research the area and the adventures we could try out there but I guess no one has done the research on how long the travel would take and how narrow the roads are. The distance from the highway going to Danasan Eco-Farm is just 26 kilometers yet since the road is too narrow and there are a lot of “habal-habal” travelling the area and some four (4) wheeled vehicles, we are traveling very slow –well, for safety purposes. we are traveling at an average speed of just 25km per hour so it took us approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
We are now in Danasan Eco-Farm! Everyone is excited to try the adventures but since we brought some kids, our first stop was their restaurant to eat lunch then while waiting for the food to be served, we took some picture on the area.
Our second stop was the swimming pool. Since our kids are not allowed to join the adventures, so we have leave them there to swim so they won’t be bored waiting for us too. Of course, we have 2 adults watching them swimming.
The third stop and the first real adventure was the sky bike. As shown on the picture, you’ll be riding the bike and the bike was on a cable. The distance was just approximately 120 meters though but since you’ll have to cross to the next edge and the drive the bike back, it would become 240 meter drive.
The next adventure was supposedly horseback riding but since most of us has already tried it before, we decided to just skip it.
instead of horseback riding, we immediately proceeded to the off-road adventure of ATV rides. With this ride, expect that you’ll get some dirts and even wet sometimes as you’ll be driving through dirts and muds.
On top of those 4 adventures, there are still lots of other adventures like twin tower wall climbing, sky drop, caving, waterfalls and trekking, wake boarding and morebut we only tried few adventures. With our package, you can actually choose 4 of the following activities plus a transportation from Cebu City to the farm and the transportation will just wait for you there for a total of 12 hours including the travel time then bring you back to the city.
