Surigao (Part 1)

Okay, I know this is a little bit too late and few weeks have already passed but this wonderful adventure of mine is still very fresh in my mind. I can’t get over it. I think everyone else can never get over it… at all.

My boss was really thrilled when she saw a promo from CDO Travel and Tours where just for P2,500 one person can already go to Surigao and have fun! At first, I thought I won’t be able to come because my mom’s birthday was also approaching that time but of course, I would really like to go. Luckily, my parents understood and let me go. And I’m even more thrilled because Jason decided to come as well.

Our rendezvous with the tour guide was at Dunkin Donuts at 11:00 PM. Me and Jason arrived 30-minutes earlier than the designated meetup so we just bought some snacks that we can munch on for the entire ride from the pharmacy accross the road.

I think I just slept on the entire ride but sad to say, Jason didn’t because he got the best (enough sugar coating, it is the worse) seat of the van, a stool. Anyway, he didn’t mind. We arrived in Surigao at 6:00 AM and our first stop was at the Tinuy-an Falls in Bislig City, Surigao.

And this what welcomed us:




The Legend of Tinuy-an Falls




See that stamp? We’re really in Tinuy-an Falls already! Me and the geeks even had fun of the stamp saying as if we are pigs that are sold in the market since they have stamps. But after we got our stamps, we got out of its gate again because we have to have breakfast. And after breakfast, we are already excited and get on our rash guards.



I always thought that the falls that we have seen as we stepped outside the van was the only falls of Tinuy-an but I am wrong. There’s actually three levels all in all! And that one that we’ve seen was just the first level.

So we are off to the second…


It’s even much more magnificent than the first one!




The view from the second level.

We got to the third one and it is even much closer to the skies. Reaching the top may be hard at first glance, but for me, it is all worth the effort.

With the best geeks in the world.


Third Level:




This thing is funny, there’s this whole in the middle of the falls and Jason dared to go into it, at first, I hesitated because I thought it was very deep, and was actually not.
