When in Rome, do as the Romans do. Should one do less than what Cebuanos do when in Cebu? No. There are numerous adrenaline-pumping activities one can do in this amazing island province in the Philippines that won't cost you an arm and a leg (I'm talking figuratively) unless, of course, you're the butter-finger, accident-prone, can't-follow-directions type, in which case you might take this statement literally.

Seriously, I'd like to walk you through several of these fun things you could do in Cebu. You might perhaps, have done one or two of these at some previous time or another, so you would be familiar with the exhilarating rush one would experience with that sense of new adventure and "danger".

Rappelling is perfectly exciting and will boost your adrenaline till the sun comes down. One of the places best offered by the island in rappelling is by the bridge in the town of Talisay which lies within the Metro Cebu area so you do not have to go farther.

It's at Funstastic island in Medellin, Cebu that one finds a jumping spot at approximately 3 stories high (30 mts). There's another cliff-jumping spot in Malapascua Island that's 50 mts high. Are you bold enough to try this? Have you got the guts to surge off from the cliff top and jump into the water? Me? I'd go dizzy just jumping off from my bed!

No. Unfortunately, Cebu does not have any of those remote deserted, tiny islands where you could get stranded with Angelina Jolie or Piolo Pascual. What Cebu has are spectacularly beautiful, good-size islands and beaches with white sands looking and feeling like refined processed sugar and blue waters where you can go free-diving, snorkeling or scuba diving to marvel at the everyday spectacles happening in the underwater world.

Tanawan, Oslob in the south eastern part of Cebu is now famously known as the site for experiencing the rare sight of amazing whale sharks diving in and out and playing in the ocean. It is during the good weather, when the water is clear that these whale sharks come out.

They're huge and massive and are never known to be fiercely violent. So you can swim with them.. subject to government rules ... No feeding No approaching them less than 5 feet. Cameras can't have a flash... but you can swim with them, if you've got what it takes!

The Philippines is an archipelago, meaning it is a cluster of islands widely scattered along and near its coastlines. Some of the best islands though, could be found in the waters off Cebu. When we say best, we really meant terrific! Exploring and hopping within these islands could mean an enormous experience to witness and discover nature's ideal gifts to Cebuanos, and don't envy them, because you could still feel those, it is just a matter of going to them physically. The best islands and destination perhaps are on our random lists. These are our ideal destinations: Pandanon Island, Nalusuan Island, Hilutungan Island, Talima and Pescador Island.

Skydiving in the Philippines is still not widely-done; in fact, there are only two places in the country where skydiving are rampant, Pampanga and Cebu.

This 1-day experience at the Olango Island is one not easy to forget. It's about visiting native homes and tasting wine made from coconuts.

In the months between September and March, which are the migratory season, you'd see the bird sanctuary serving as a stop-over in this island for thousands of migratory birds on their way to New Zealand or Australia. Seeing this as one giant flock covering the sky is awesome.
