Cebu is blessed with so much beautiful nature spots and amongst them are waterfalls. Anywhere in the province you can visit a waterfall from a budget of Php 50.00 to a more expensive ones somewhere in north and south side of Cebu. I was fortunate enough to have friends who loves waterfall chasing as well and we just explored the best kept secrets of Ginatilan and Samboan last weekend - its majestic waterfalls. We have conquered a total of seven waterfalls namely Inambakan Falls, Kampael Falls, Bugnawan Falls, Aguinid Falls, Hidden Binalayan Falls, Balaygsawa Falls, Da-o Falls in a span of two days.
