3 Reasons Why You Should Skip Canyoneering in Cebu

Yes, you read it right.

You might have heard about it from your workmates, caught a glimpse of some celebrity promoting it on their travel show or probably saw some stunning nature shots on Facebook.

And now you’re on Google looking for articles that would further convince you to buy that plane ticket to Cebu.

For someone who experienced it first hand, I’m telling you right now to please reconsider your decision.

Here are three reasons why you should skip canyoneering in Cebu:

The activity requires stamina and endurance

Basically, you’re going to traverse a considerable length of the Matutinao River.

The journey starts at Kanlaob Crossing in Alegria and ends in Badian’s Kawasan Falls.

If you’re not physically fit and used to the outdoors, the canyoneering experience would surely take a toll on your body leaving you quite sore the next day.

There’s a level of danger involved

You’re required to jump off cliffs, no exemptions.

How high you ask? Probably as high as the second floor of a typical building.

And since it’s a dense forest, there’s a chance you’ll see snakes along the way.

There’s also a probability you’ll slip and land on your behind due to moss-covered rocks. Just hope you won’t sprain an ankle.

Although it’s a guided activity, it’s not an assurance that you’ll be safe from accidents.

Make sure to contact an accredited canyoneering operator like Alegria Eco Adventours Corp and tell them I sent you. These guys are trained to safely conduct the activity.

Not only that, their guides are well-versed with basic life support, first responder course and rescue trainings just in case any untoward incidents might happen.

It would cost you considerable time and money

In terms of time, it would take about three to four hours to reach Alegria from Mactan Cebu International Airport.

According to Google spans 125 kilometers while the entire canyoneering session would take at least four hours. Then another four hours back to the airport.

In terms of money, let’s say there’s four of you.

For back and forth transportation expenses exclusive of the airfare, the budget is around ten dollars per person. The canyoneering activity costs thirty dollars per person. A decent room good for two would cost around thirty dollars.

And also don’t forget about the food since you’ll definitely need it before, during and after the activity.

 I guess now you would think twice about signing up for this extreme outdoor adventure.

However, if you decide to face the challenge despite of all the reasons why you should skip canyoneering in Cebu,

You’ll have an experience you’ll never forget for the rest of your life.
