In Pictures: Papa Kit’s Marina and Fishing Lagoon (Liloan, Cebu)

There’s really no such thing as all-in-one per se in terms of adventure since earth is not only a division of land and water but land itself has caves, mountains and plains. Thus, in most cases, the nearest thing to an all-in-one could be beach activities (parasailing, jetskiing, and alike) plus camping..

Or swimming and land activities (zipline, wall climbing, and alike); otherwise, you just have to hike to link all ’em activities you like.

And Papa Kit’s Marina and Fishing Lagoon is one that includes a mix of water and land activities without the camping among others.

Horseback Riding: P75 for 15 minutes
Fishing: P100 per fishing rod
400m Zipline: P200 two-way (800m)
Wall Climbing: P100 per 3 attempts
Hanging Bridge: P50 one way
600m Jungle Obstacle: P150 one way
Wakeboarding: P500 per hour
Paddle Boat: P200 per half hour
Swimming Pool: P100 per head

Papa Kit’s is just 20 kilometers north of Cebu City — this is in Liloan, near the municipal hall and just a stone’s throw away from the sports complex. Everyone there knows the place, so just ask if you feel lost.

Rooms are available in 2 rates: Overnight and Day Use

Once you are inside this 93 hectare property, the sights could induce you to spend a night or two — and what a spot?! The rooms are even facing the wakeboarding site! By the way, the entrance fee is P100 per head but it is consumable — so enjoy!

Top 10 Beach Activities in the Philippines

Know what, there are actually many things we could do in beaches — yeah, not just swimming, eating and chitchatting. We could do yoga, read a book, fly a kite and more! Unfortunately, many of us just leaves such activities at home. Hmm…

And so, what do we normally see in Philippine beaches?

Singing (Music): The universal language

VIDEOKE. In almost any beach you go to, and even from afar, you could already hear this thunderous sound — Singing!!

Selfie: The way of life

SELFIE OR PHOTOGRAPHING VIEWS. What is having fun without having memories of it? Besides, picture-taking has simply become part of our lifestyle already!

Playing Cards: The national past time??

PLAYING CARDS OR MAHJONG. Especially for those who does not want to swim yet, playing cards or mahjong is one past time many just could not live without. Really.

Drinking: The amnesiatic solution??

DRINKING. Though you could see people ‘drinking’ even without playing cards, in most cases, these two activities go hand-in-hand.

Sand Games: The path to re-energizing

SAND CASTLES OR BURYING A FRIEND. Even for many adults, playing with sand is a sure thing especially when it’s white sand where one could also bury a friend.

Beach Volleyball: Bonding and exercise in one

BALL GAMES. Beach volleyball and soccer, these are the most popular ball games one could see on beaches. And oh, incidentally, athleticism is reduced dramatically when on sand making almost everybody equal — thus, more fun and excitement!

Playing Frisbee: Fun and personal training in one

FRISBEE OR PLAYING CATCH. For those who doesn’t have a Frisbee, one could see beach goers playing catch instead that is by using a beach ball — however, only few moves on to play dodgeball since it requires more energy and athleticism to play it.

Relaxing or Taking a Nap: Just ‘enjoying’ the moment

TAKING A NAP. Yeah, we could see more than a handful actually taking a nap or relaxing on beaches — what with the time they spent in preparing food or even just talking onto the wee hours of the night in excitement of going to the beach!

Playing Tag: A simple way of making friends

PLAYING TAG. Either on sand or at sea, there are still those who plays tag or even race — then again, the numbers has fallen since this requires energy; and these days, energy has become a commodity that they’d rather swim leisurely than try to tag someone else.

Boating: Enjoying while exploring the sea

BOATING. While many would want to go boating, only a few would actually go for it. Ey, you have to spend to do so! Good if their group is just about 6-8 people, that with some extra cash, they would most likely rent and take the paddle. Thus, if the majority could not ride then the minority would not force it. So, jetskiing, parasailing, and alike — obviously, they’re not for the majority.

Banana Boat Ride: Adding excitement to a wonderful summer

As for playing musical instruments, most would rather sing at the videoke bar. Board games? Most would rather play cards. Dance the limbo or learning new sports? Most would rather roam around for ‘selfies’. Watching movies on a portable CD player? Most would rather, well, sleep; of course, watching movies among others is sedentary as well but the point is — many have become idle!?

Collect seashells or play tug-of-war? My, it’s almost a forgotten art!

Travel Time: Activities Considered Illegal in North Korea

You might be able to survive not watching TV for awhile, or even not driving nor drinking – but how about not being able to make international calls? Or perhaps being prohibited from surfing the web?

Well, these are just some everyday activities that you might want to reconsider if you are planning to visit North Korea..

Intriguing, huh?!?

I’m sure North Korea has some interesting places and nice people; but some of the activities being disallowed just doesn’t make one feel safe, right?

Sure, you could still go back home, wherever it may be..

But more than thinking about their tourism industry, you might even wonder if their phones are tapped or if every house is monitored by a spy cam? Oh, just curious. As outsiders, we may not feel good but then for locals, well..
