In Pictures: Cebu Wetland Resort (Bacalso, Cebu City)

If you want to enjoy swimming while having a get-together yet you don’t feel like traveling far from the city then today’s feature could be your destination — Cebu Wetland Resort. It’s the only inland resort in Cebu City and where you not only get to swim but do boating and fishing as well.

To Get Here: Ride the #11 jeep at Colon. That’s it. Yes, this time you do not really need a cab unless you got a lot to bring and simply want to have a more comfortable trip to the resort; after all, you want to relax and re-energize. Right.

The resort is owned by an engineer, so when you actually get to the place itself you’d be surprised by the construction materials and heavy equipments that would greet you — that you may not have even noticed its site at once. Don’t get discouraged though..

Once you see the pond. The huts. The boats. And of course, the pools. You’d feel a lot more engaged. By the way, boating only costs P50 while fishing.. P20 for the rod and also P20 for the bait.

Oh yes, the entrance fee costs P150 for adults and P120 for kids 2-8 years old. Kinda steep, huh? But that also includes the cottage. Altho you would have to pay corkage for drinks and lechon if ever, you’d probably won’t mind with all the fun you’re bound to get..

Even if you have to pay P180 per kilo on the fish you caught. Hah! Otherwise, just remove the hook and return the fish to the pond.


And if you haven’t had enough, hey, you could sleep here. Sshhh..
