The Plight of Aznar Beach Resort (Talisay City, Cebu)

For those of you who have not heard of Aznar Beach Resort, well, it’s just located on the coastal area of Talisay — around 12 kilometers from Cebu City.

But sadly, t’is just one of those places that really needs improvement even more than the one we saw in Minglanilla — which is at least a private property. But this one? It’s said to be a beach resort, so..

Something just has to be done.

Nahh. Can’t do anything ’bout the sand. If it ain’t white, it ain’t white. But what the beach owner could do is improve the ‘landscaping’ of sorts. It’s just kinda tight and disorganized. Cottages are too close. Vendors are just about everywhere. Their kiosks that is; making the place look quite ‘dirty’. And ’em fences needs to be replaced.

Yeah, those are just the obvious. Perhaps you could even see more.
Okay, the beach is catered for the masses but still, there should be some sort ‘beautification’, you know. Hey, with its current status, ‘sanitation’ might as well becomes a question!

If only you want to save, or perhaps just for the experience of it..

Yeah, you could try Aznar — it’s still a beach.

Real Estate: Talisay City, Cebu Properties

If you’re seeking a good investment and you’ve ran out of real estate in Cebu City — then Talisay City would prove to be a great alternative. It offers good buys especially in terms of bare land or lots that’s understandably cheaper compared to Cebu City.

And you need not worry if your address would no longer be Cebu City ’cause a good number of these properties are so near the provincial capital — perhaps even just 10, 15 minutes away!

Besides, if you love the beach, waterfalls or mountain climbing — hey, you’d be first to get there since you’re already in South Road!

In Pictures: Villa Teresita Resort (Talisay City, Cebu)

If you’ve just gotten to Villa Teresita Resort in Talisay City, you could probably be a bit disheartened with its first sight. Well, the outside doesn’t really look so cool — same goes with its lobby all the way to even its first 2 pools. Yup, just looks tight and messy inside.

Yet do not be discouraged. As you go deep into the resort, yes, to the back that is — to the so-called ‘Seaside Pool’ — you would feel a little, hmm… happier? Hah! Let’s see the resort in pictures.

Yet while there is no corkage fees for food, you’d pay corkage for drinks — and cottages ranging from P300 to P600.

By the way, they got some dress codes especially in the Seaside pool, so if your attire won’t do — you could buy one in their store.

And in case you’d want to spend a night here, it’s P1,300 for 2 people and P2,200 for a family of 6. Ah there’s a dorm, too, for P400 a head.

Hah! Yeah, they got Wi-Fi but it’s real slow.. so, just enjoy swimming!

Okay now, time to exit..

The Exit is just beside the Entrance (right)

Well, it’s a good idea though to have a different entrance and exit as some customers may still be dripping wet, and you would not want to make the entrance slippery. So, see ya’ next time!

In Pictures: Crocolandia (Talisay City, Cebu)

Situated just 13 kilometers south of Cebu City is Crocolandia, and you’re right — the stars of the show are ‘crocs’! Still, although the crocodiles are the main attraction of the place, yup, particularly ’cause of the feeding that many just wants to see — Crocolandia is actually more than just these beautiful creatures..

It’s in fact something like a mini-zoo with animals ranging from birds to lizards to tortoises, and even an ostrich! Let’s see for ourselves..

Located along P. Burgos St. in Talisay City, Crocolandia is especially frequented during the weekends for its, yep, feeding schedule..

Anyway, while waiting for that feeding hour at 4pm — not only could you check out other animals — they also got a museum. And yeah, for kids to be ever so entertained, the place has a playground and a canteen with even Wi-Fi connectivity!

To Get Here: Again, same as getting to Sta. Teresa de Avila Church and the Liberation Park — CLICK HERE — unless you’re in a private vehicle, or you rented a Multicab for the whole family to fit.

Travel Time: Sta. Teresa de Avila Church & the Liberation Park (Talisay City, Cebu)

For this feature, we got 2 ‘destinations’ for you — yep, since they are just about 200 meters away from each other in Poblacion, Talisay City, Cebu. These are the Sta. Teresa de Avila Church which is the first one you would see being along the road — and the Liberation Park which is by the sea shore.

To Get Here: The ‘sight’ is just about 12 kilometers or so from Cebu City — so, ride a jeepney with any of the following numbers 41-46 where you could just get off Tabunok market and take a motorbike or tricycle. Yet to go deep into Talisay, ride #42 from Cebu City.

To Sta. Teresa de Avila Church

While we view churches as the same, well, actually they’re not. The structures may have some similarities (however, still with variations) but what defines it is the time it was built. This means, that century-old look and all has a big impact along with the church’s location. That’s what makes it special!

Oh.. Might as well go to the sports complex another time, uh!? Hah! Know what else is cool about this structure? Ok, even if it has some similarity with another Augustinian church in Bacnotan, La Union and to some extent, San Luis in Pampanga as well as Carcar also in Cebu — it still stands out because of its covered porch supported by two columns and a balustraded terrace that connects the two towers.

Well, historical places are always a sight to behold especially for those who appreciates how we came to be. In this case, the ‘landing in Talisay’ by the American forces back in World War II that paved the way to the recapturing of Cebu in 27 March 1945; and the Japanese surrender of the province 5 months later.

Dig it? Better visit. See yah!

In Pictures: Getting to Igotan Cave (Talisay City, Cebu)

Many times, pictures do help in choosing the places we would want to visit. Yet for secluded, or sites we have never even heard of, pictures not only rubs our ‘travel bug’ but gives us that safe feeling — knowing the ‘terrain’ we have to go through in advance.

Let’s now see and feel the ‘actual’ terrain in getting to Igotan Cave.

In your last ride to Igotan Cave, the above photo is the landmark where motorbikes wait to bring you to the area — Brgy. Jaclupan.

The road to Igotan Cave takes around 15 minutes of scenic views..

Upon getting off your ride, you just have to walk straight till you see a basketball court and a mango tree where you’d be going down to cross a dry river and onto the hill — which isn’t really that far.

pic19

Yeah, until you see this house, or the entrance to the cave’s vicinity.pic20

Since the cave isn’t that wide, spelunkers usually get in the cave on a first come, first serve basis — meaning, just gotta wait for your turn.pic22

pic23

They used to allow visitors down those rocks where the ‘outer’ falls is, but since they’re fixing the place, it’s temporarily disallowed. pic24

Finally, as a parting shot.. Read that poster before entering the cave, prepare to get your feet wet, hold your cameras well, and watch your step and head. Oh yes, you could shower in the falls inside but just secure your other stuff so it won’t slip or get wet as well.

Hmm… In case you wanna go for another short adventure, feel free to explore the dry river and its surroundings especially that bridge.
