Danasan Eco Adventure Park with family

We are sharing some of the adventures for Danasan Eco Adventure Park with family.  We were supposed to spend half a day at the park, but the rain (and mud) has other plans.

Our family were still looking for more adventures, after Kawasan Canyoneering and Whale sharks Oslob. Danasan’s sky-cycling and ATV caught our attention.

Danasan Eco Adventure Park is like a theme park for adventures, suitable for the whole family.

You can do horse riding, ATV or Karting. Or try something more thrilling like trekking, waterfall and cave exploration. The extreme one is called Skydrop (Youtube link).

Our own experience captured on video (YouTube video)

Daredevils can try rappelling, skybike!

But first, you have to survive the hilly terrain, and drive in 20km .
Why would anyone want to build an adventure park so deep inside the mountain?

Road conditions need to be upgraded too. Those with car motion sickness better be prepared.

Danasan Eco Adventure Park with family will keep you busy. If keen, you can even camp or book one of their “hostels” for a night in the mountains.

However the activities booking system (packaging) can be a bit confusing (booking via Klook). Pink, Yellow and Green bundles etc.

I would prefer Danasan Eco Adventure Park to promote a one-ticket-for-all-activities instead.

1.ATV for us

The mud and drizzle was a little letdown, but we proceeded anyway. The whole Danasan Eco Adventure Park compound is huge.

We rode the “countryside” and throttle to our delight.

The video above would capture more of our Fun 🙂

Many corners in Danasan for exploration. If not for the rain, we would be able to explore more activities.

2. Speedway (something like Gokart)

Anyway, the rain got bigger and the ground muddier. Since we were already wet and dirty, not much difference.

Kids opted for Gokart fun.

Do not run into the cute lambs !

Look at the puddles. The rain never stopped for the 3 hours we were there.   

Shower with a hose, so much mud to scrap off yucks. But kids were game and keen to explore more.

3. Skybike crazy and zip line

We had to zipline to the “start point” for the bicycle.
It was freezing cold to zip through the rain 🙂

Cycling in the sky (5 stories up) was a novelty for us. Skybike is also one of the most instagrammable activity for Danasan Eco Adventure Park.

Participants will get to cycle two laps.

Our package came with a simple lunch. Chicken thigh tasted heavenly in the cold.

Day 5 Half day Cebu city tour

Cebu city tour for us on Day 5.

You do not need to be a Catholic or Christian to appreciate Cebu’s heritage. Formed over thousands of years, some history from indigenous and some heritage from former Spaniard colonial period.

Our Cebu City Tour on Youtube

We book a private half day city tour from Klook package. Our guide, Rolando (Uncle) proudly shared his city’s stories and history as we drove around.

There are a few icons (touristy) in Cebu, and we visited Cebu Taoist Temple in Beverly Hills. Yes, the same Beverly in California 🙂

And yes, the richest folks live in the hills, overlooking the city.

1. Cebu Taoist Temple 

Photo with the dragon at the entrance. There are pagodas big and small all around.

Can you spot our hotel in the city downtown?

*Our City tour locations are captured in the custom Google Map below. We stayed at Mandarin Plaza in Cebu downtown.

Primary reason is the good reviews, and central location. Ayala center is a short 10 min walk away (5min if you dare to dash across the road).

Our guide shared tidbits about White House and Cebu’s first bank.

2.  Magallan’s Cross

Catholics all over the world would visit the religious relics and artifacts in Cebu. Magellan’s Cross is one of the Catholic symbolic artifacts.

Photos for tourists and admiration from Catholics.

Prayers and mass is a stone throw’s away at Santo Nino Church. Built in  1565, the Church is gland and magnificent.

We heard the Sinulog Fiesta planned for 2020 will be one of the most spectacular.

3. Basilica del Santo Niño

Also known as Santo Nino Church.

Many families were out about town, praying at mass. We heard this is the oldest church in the Philippines.

Elegant walkway inside the Church.

This open space outside the Church is utilised during mass and on special days.

As we drove along, you will sometimes spot poor communities next to sprawling malls.

4. Fort San Pedro

Fort San Pedro was the last stop for us. This was the first Spanish settlement in Cebu and Philippines.

The roof, tiles and cannons have been preserved.

Outside the gate, Cebu is ready to welcome Christmas.

Our guide Rolando and driver Renante (not in photo) were super friendly. Their enthusiasm rubbed off on us and we enjoyed our city tour too.

More photos can be found on our Facebook album. You will also discover more F&B and massage around our Hotel.
