DANAO ADVENTURE PARK, a great place to stay, relax and FACE YOUR FEARS

Danao Adventure Park
The Extreme Adventure Tour or Danao Adventure Park is now climbing to be one of top tourist spots and destination in Bohol. Situated on the area where the longest Philippine Revolutionary Movement took place, led by Francisco Dagohoy, a Boholano hero. The boulders and limestone formation in area might have witnessed the most important stage on how these Boholano heroes plotted the revolution against the Spaniards. Today, the facility is being run by the local government of the Municipality of Danao and it is a center of Eco-tourism, recreation and adventure in the province awaiting to be discovered.

My journey was from Siquijor: had a two-hour ferry ride to Tagbilaran Port, Bohol. At the port, rode in a tricycle to the terminal beside Island City Mall (ICM). Then, rode in a Danao bound van and alighted in Danao Poblacion. And a habal ride to Danao Adventure Park.

Upon getting off the motorcycle, I heard a very warm "Good Afternoon, Sir!!" from the employees; from the guard on duty to the receptionists. It was already past four in the afternoon, so the activity areas are already closed. As planned, I checked in for an overnight stay and do the activities the next day. While heading to my room, I noticed that the area is very quite, surrounded with hardwood trees, the wind is cool and fresh - a perfect place to relax. It was a long a tiring day, so I ended it with a sumptuous dinner at their restaurant.

And the next day came - the most awaited day. When I was creating my itinerary for Negros Oriental, Siquijor and Bohol two months prior this solo-backpacking, I placed THE PLUNGE on top of my list. I made sure that it will be done. When the activity area opened at 8 AM, from my room, I walked on the concrete road and headed directly to THE PLUNGE platform. The activity facilitators greeted and encouraged me to do THE PLUNGE. I didn't feel any pressure, so I tried it without any hesitation and the result is, video below:

After the activity, tidy up and packed my stuff. When I checked out, the reception gave a certificate for performing THE PLUNGE. They also contacted a habal driver who brought me to the van terminal bound for Tagbilaran City. My experience in Danao Adventure Park was great, I can give 9 out of 10 rating.

Other activities to try are The Suislide, Glass Cliffwalk, Skyride, Mountain Trekking, Root Climb, River Kayaking, and caving such as Ka-Mira Cave and Baliho Cave.
