Awao Falls
Awao Falls hides on the mountainous farming village in Brgy. Awao, Municiplality of Monkayo. In terms of Eco-tourism, Awao is the top destinations in the province of Compostela Valley, now Davao de Oro. There is no direct transportation to this majestic waterfalls, so having an hour bumpy habal-habal ride, with river crossing, is necessary to see its hidden beauty. Getting here will certainly be challenging but you will be rewarded with a pristine and breathtaking waterfalls. The picturesque is perfect, the ambiance is relaxing, the water is cool, and the air is fresh.

I did not spend an overnight in Compostela Valley. After the visit in Awao Falls, I headed back to Davao City and stayed at D'Morvie Suites (San Pedro) for only 448 Pesos for 24 hours. Room has flat screen TV, AC, toilet and bath, WiFi (very slow reception). What's good in D'Morvie Suites is that their building is new, clean, affordable and accessible but has limited spaces for hallways, elevator and etc. Overall - it's a YES for me!
