Day Tour : Turtle Island, Vanishing Islet & Plaza Resort ~ ☼☼☼


A week of planning and here we are! Turtle Island!

3 hrs. drive, the road is worst. Imagine riding a roller coaster hehe. When we arrived at this private resort, we are all hungry and so eager to eat breakfast. The weather is not so nice that day, the sun didn’t even cooperate but we are so all excited what awaits us that day!

And there’s the Floating Cottage!


While they prepared for food, we go around to explore the area that surrounds the resort – I know, it’s all water around lol but what’s so exciting to see are the fishes, sea turtles, jelly fish, star fish and many others!

After eating, fun started as they picked their life jackets ride the kayak while waiting for the pump boat driver to arrive – He’ll be responsible in pulling our cottage up to what they call “The Vanishing Islet”…


While others are just enjoying the view and the food, and the water!

Even puppy *moi-moi*  had her kayak moment! =P


When the pump boat driver arrived and starts pulling our cottage , the fun didn’t stopped!

From the resort to the vanishing islet takes almost an hour! +__+ zoomed the camera and there it is!


When we got there, I was so amazed how beautiful it is! White sand, crystal clear water and Star fish scattered around, u can pick as many as u can haha!

Before this islet starts to vanish ( as they say..) it’s time to go. It has been so much fun, in less than an hour, it feels so long! …and yes, I left a mark there!


While going back to the resort, that’s another hour of being in the middle of the sea, everyone felt tired, some slept ( it felt like swinging so possible u’ll fall asleep!) while the rest are just talking about what they are seeing around.

Upon arrival, I tried my luck w/ the Kayak!

It’s very scary for me who can’t swim and not to mention it’s too deep! I even forgot that I am wearing a life jacket, but all scares are inside me and all we did was just laughing and screaming. Unfortunately, we didn’t go as far as others does. It’s really too scaryyy =P . The experience was awesome, no regrets ^__^


After the kayak, we went off to some other part of the resort…and surprisingly we’ve seen this ~↓↓↓ …as well as other types of fishes…

The last part would be going around that bridge on the other side. I’ve been wanting to go there since we arrived =)

Homeward bound. After 2 hrs. on the road we stopped by @ San Lorenzo Ruiz Church…


…finally got home past 6pm and so so tired but all worth it! Thank GOD for the safe trip and a wonderful and memorable experience!~♥♥♥


::Crossing the Hanging Bridge::

After the Gazebo fun, we went to the place where the Hanging Bridge is. It’s in the same city. Few days before Thursday, I’ve been trying to search a photo of this bridge as I’ve heard it’s really nice? I goggled and this was it …

Filled w/ excitements, we all ( no, a few of us- cuz others want to rest rather than going to the Bridge) went there! When we get to the pace, we were all running to the stairs going to the bridge and to my surprise, it was really long…and scary cause even a single person who walks on it, it swing and sways!! Everyone walked their way to the bridge to the other end while I am the last one to walk and so slow, while gripping on the sides lol – finally I got on the other end while they’re all there cheering and am so happy I made it  w/ all those big sweats on my face lol @.@

The Bridge is open to public so it’s normal to see people passing by and some even in bicycles! Some kids just run on it and that was really so scary when it’s swinging so much~!

::Eco Park Tour~*in photos::

It’s my first time to be in this place ^.^ We’ve had planned to be here last year but our schedules did not permit… So this is the day I and some of my staffs decided to visit this talk of the town mountain resort~*

These are some photos on the way~*


Then the information area where you’ll pay for the entrance which is PhP100 per person and PhP350 for the cottage~*It’s also filled with cool motorcycles or are they called big bikes? am not sure, but cool!


*~click below to view full album~*

From there, you’ll take a ride again on their service for few minutes on a rough, rough muddy road! It was a bit scary but FUN~!!

and here is the eco park itself~!

It’s almost lunch when we get there , so we then eat first! I’ve also seen a big cottage where everyone can eat w/out charge if we knew then we wouldn’t be renting our own~*


After eating, we go around the whole area to take pictures!!!

I took all of these~* ^.^

….of course, FUN FUN FUN in the Pool!! ( below is the adult pool)


…and since I can’t swim, I can’t be there 😛 I was in the kid’s pool~*



After the fun at the kid’s pool, it’s time to go! And we go around again for some more pictures~*

We then go back to the information area and took photos of the mountains that can be viewed from there..

Some photos on the way back~*

And……It was a fun trip and am so happy that everyone enjoyed and had so much fun!!
