I kept telling people that there is more to Bohol than the usual Chocolate Hills, Tarsiers and Panglao. I had a chance to go back to Bohol several times this year and coincidentally, most of the activities I had there is to sample exciting adventure activities on different spots. Bohol is turning out to be one exciting adventure hub along with the popular attractions the island is known for. Here’s a nice itinerary for a Three Day Adventure in Bohol.
The Itinerary is not what I did but just a suggestion
Day 1: Of Chocolate Hills, Tarsiers and Loboc River Cruise
if you’re a first timer in Bohol, it’s nice to get acquainted to what made Bohol popular in the first place. The Chocolate Hills is nice but not something I would go back to again and again. For seeing the Tarsiers, I would recommend going to Corella instead of Loboc since they take proper care of the Tarsiers there than the later. There are two competing Loboc River Cruises now, I would go to the one near the bridge not in Loboc Proper, since they have better tasting food.
Day 2: Extreme Adventure at EAT Danao
Eat Danao saw just recently saw its popularity recently after a few years of appreciation. And it’s hard not to talk about it since EAT Danao is one of a king. A hive of exciting activities here for those seeking for an adrenaline rush. The Plunge, the Philippine’s one and only canyon-swing can be found here and it’s one hell of an experience.
Day 3: Baclayon’s Dolphin Watching at Pamilacan, Buggy Ride Trail and Biking at Mongo-ol
Wake up early in the morning for Pamilacan Dolphin watching, there’s a high percentage of sightings if jumping off from Baclayon. Then after lunch go for a trilling 1 and a half hour Dune Buggy Ride. If you’re into biking, challenge the trails at Mongo-ol. Then after all the adventure, chill-out at Baclayon Baluarte.
That should give you an idea when planning an adventure escape in Bohol. Looking for a place to stay? Don’t forget to check out the lovely Peacock Garden Boutique Resort in Baclayon. Also do check the Bohol Archive.
