Esoy Hot Spring in Cebu

May 25, 2015
“Just the smell of summer, can make me fall in love”
Touched the heat of the sun and let the memories flew down from the top to the bottom of the river, was what my heart expressed before this summer end.  The heavy foods in my tummy along with the far-far away of journeying from the city to the mountain marked as a best trip with the gigs.  Then, the Esoy hot spring was telling me to relax and live my life wild and free.

Hooh! that’s how I define and feel the scent of my summer this year.

And of course, it’s another memory that made me fall in love again and again with my precious friends and almost a decade of friendship (2 years to go, not to say… I’m counting hahah). We never miss to make whoopee on the rocks every summer and that’s the best thing about having something in common–(shouting) we’re the fresh spring lovers. They’re with me at Mt. Uragay Spring Resort, the cold spring of Carmen, Cebu last year.

For this year’s summer blast, we did our first ever trekking at Esoy Hot Spring, Brgy Duyan, Catmon Cebu. The place has comfortable and relaxing hot spring, and not only that, it includes different breathtaking challenges that would surely boost your adrenaline through climbing those slippery slopes and big rocks. As well as, it’s also a breakthrough for those who have an acrophobia to plunge deep-down from the top of the water falls down to the river while having fun under the fascinating paradise.

Let the place captures your laughters with…
