Last November I was invited to a 4d/3n staycation at Movenpick Resort Hotel in Mactan Cebu. The Reosrt is the only 5-star facility in Mactan Island Cebu. It is located at Punta Engano Lapu-lapu City, just a few meters away from the famed Mactan Shrine.
Movenpick is an international brand of Resort Hotel based in Switzerland. Upon arrival, I was greeted by the friendly staff and checked in to my room.
It’s the last day of our tour in Antique and I am pretty much excited to try new stuff while here! We we up a little early again, for our coffee, and breakfast of corned beef and sunny side up. It is our last day in Antique and we made sure to save the best for last!
After breakfast, we went to the Tribal Adventures facility to try the whitewater kayak experience. I have tried the whitewater radfting in Davao before So more or less I have an idea of what to expect.
And before we go out in the river, we had our safety briefing first. Tribal Adventures has been operating the whitewater kayak in Tibiao for quite some time now, but it is only recently that it came into spotlight when Katahum Tours started to market this activity as part of their tour product.

It’s Day 2 of our Antique Heritage Tour, and I’m excited to explore the rest of the province! We woke up a little bit early for our cup of coffee. We spent our night at the Zipline Inn. It was named as such because it is adjacent to a Zipline facility.
From our accommodations, we were then shuttled to the beach where we Had our lambaklad fishing the previous day for our breakfast. We had the usual Filipino breakfast but this time, by the beach!
Fact: I grew up in Bacolod City in the Province of Negros Occidental, and oveer the years, I was able to explore the other Provinces of Western Visayas, namely: Iloilo, Guimaras, Aklan Capix, except for one: Antique.
I did made several attempts to cross the border between San Jaquin Iloilo going to Anini-y Antique but nothing came it. All plans failed.
Until finally, last month, I received a message if I wanted to join the Antique Heritage Tour. Hmmmm, Interesting!
