Experience a scenic getaway in Mainit Hot Springs and Montaneza Falls in Malabuyoc by booking this tour. If you want to tour the small towns of Cebu to get away from the suntanned crowd of the island’s frequently-visited beach destinations, this tour is perfect.

About 1.5 kilometers from the highway in Barangay Montañeza, southwest of Cebu, lies the Mainit Spring, which is famous for its heated pools. The Montañeza River threads its way through a narrow ravine while flowing waterfalls and rich forest lands adorn the sprawling reserve. 

Your tour begins in Cebu City, where a local guide will take you to Barangay Malabuyoc. Once here, you will be treated to a set of five different waterfalls, where you can climb and jump down the rapids. One of the highlights is the descending of a 30-meter high waterfall with an overhang.

The Montañeza Falls is a hidden gem that is gradually becoming popular among local and foreign visitors. It is located close to another natural tourist attraction of the town, the Mainit Springs. It has several smaller levels and a big one, all of which are guaranteed to take your breath away both figuratively and literally. 

The journey to the falls itself may be an adventure for non-outdoorsy types since you have to navigate through some ravines and rocks. After this, witness the beauty of the Mainit Springs, which is a few minutes walk from the falls. 

The Mainit Hot Spring has a man-made pool basin with concrete seats that provide comfort to visitors. Surrounded with greenery the Mainit is considered a gift by the Diwata to its local folks due to the scarcity of doctors years ago. The mineral-rich waters are believed to treat a wide array of concerns. Since then people from all walks of life have come to visit this haven.

The Mainit watering hole has not only heated waters available but also flowing cool spring water in its river located just below the man-made basin. A small pool near the river bank is believed to be hot enough to cook hard-boiled eggs.

See the best of Malabuyoc by booking this majestic escapade. Check availability by choosing a date above.
