It will be quite an adventure. Hence it is important that you will also consider what you wear. It would be appropriate to put on clothes that would be quick to dry. Since you will be sweating and of course getting wet, you might really consider those. Good examples would be shorts or leggings, wet suits and rash guards. For your footwear, you can opt for aqua shoes however we suggest those with thick soles. Dive boots and even running shoes are good. Do not forget to bring in some extra clothes, towels and water too. For your safety and protection, safety gears will be provided.

There’s always a quick safety briefing before the experience. And this is way appropriate since tour guides there always see to it that the guests are safe. Then a short walk to Kanlaob river where you would be jumping off the first waterfall to enter the Kanla-ob canyon. This is quite easy and ideal for beginners as it is effortless. As you follow the path, you will surely experience Cebu’s finest scenic nature.

If you yearn for more adventure, there’s a 25 foot and a 50 foot waterfall. The Alegria-Badian downstream would be a piece of cake. There’s even a 70 foot drop though it is an optional jump. This is optional though hence for those who are scared you can always inform your guide about this.
