The falls are located in a river valley that you'll walk along for about 15 minutes from the drop off point. It's an easy walk, but some uneven ground for aged or infirm. The beauty of the falls is spectacular with a good flow of water all year round through the surrounding mountains. Most who go enjoy being taken under... More

The waterfall itself is really beautiful and so is the walk there. Sadly it's touristic with bamboo rafting and tables that you need to rent. You also need to pay to use the dressing rooms/toilet, which are not fresh at all. You can take a swim in the "pool" and it truly is amazing with the blue water, just try... More

Nice place, busy though and everything is extra; lockers, washroom, entry fee. Lots of people doing canyoning makes it very loud and busy.

Lush green forest and turquoise water. A beautiful walk in the nature that cannot be missed if you are in the neighbourhood.

I came here with my friends and it was easily the highlight of our cebu vacation. We've done canyoneering and we were lucky to have tour guides similar to our age (25ish) which makes a big difference because they tend to treat us as "barkadas" and so we had a blast exploring the rivers and falls and they helped us...

Came here after Sinulog and BOOM there was a typhoon. Still pushed our Canyoneering. We are halfway of our canyoneering when came a Brown water rushing towards us. our tour guide shouts Baha! Baha! We all rushed to get out of the water. So we are stranded there trying to figure out how we are all going back. The blue... More

Just 130 kilometers southwest of Cebu City and about three hours bus ride, the Kawasan Falls is located inside the mountains of Barangay Matutinao, Badian. From the entrance you... More

If you're fanatic with mountain adventures this is a great place for you. From the town of Badian you'll need to walk like 1 to 2 kilometers including hiking. But when you get into the place you will be amaze. Don't forget to bring towels or things that dry you fast 'cause the water here is so cold. But bottom... More

To be honest: the turquoise water and the tropical vegetation in this canyon are spectacular. BUT: They managed to almost destroy the beauty by building an ugly restaurant in the middle of this perfect scenery. Nonetheless it's worth a visit. PS: There are men trying to offer their services as guides. You definitely won't need a guide.

There are options to stay inside the park, but I wouldnt advise. The few buildings that are there to rent are packed with travelers picnicking and hanging out all day. If you stay there, you'll want exclusivity and getting a revolving door of visitors until 6pm when the park closes. You also don't see the whole chain of falls. I... More
