Travel: Cagayan de Oro
June 5, 2011
Cagayan de Oro, also known as the “City of Golden Friendship“. Nothing gets any better than having fun summer adventure with your best friends. After many months of planning, this trip was able to push through. I was excited then because it will be my first time to set foot on Mindanao — yes to kababawan happiness. :) Thanks to Kath and her relatives for the free accommodation, at least we were able to save a little bit on this trip.
When we speak of Cagayan de Oro, the first thing that comes into our mind is ‘White Water Rafting’. And yes, we tried that. You can choose between the basic or advance package. Since this is a once in a lifetime experience, why waste the chance? Go for the “advance” package — that means having to go through stronger and bigger rapids. The package costs Php1200/head which includes free lunch. I must say the price is worth the experience . :-D
Found this video of our rafting adventure. Ang tamad ko pala sumagwan nun – not enough vitamins!!! haha :-)
Other than the white water rafting experience, we also tried the ziplining at Mapawa Nature Park. It was fine though I’ve heard that the one in Davao is way better. But still not bad for a first timer.
