We arrived late at our Airbnb host sent her guy to wait for us and take us to place. Our taxi was a tricycle, first for us, and it was amazing and refreshing for that specific.
During by night, Dumaguete is full of living, people love to hang out, eat, drink, party. You never get bored. You can find food and drinks for all kind of budgets, so, don’t worry, you will find whatever you need: local food, fast food and so on.
At our host, we made new friends and for two days we explore around the city some marvelous places that you’ll never forget.
First, we negotiate for a good price with two drivers, one motorcycle, one tricycle to take us to Casaroro Falls located in the municipality of Valencia. They were really nice, and they came with us and helps all the way to
From the place we left the bikes we went down to a long way of stairs until we reach the river. From there all the way to waterfall was broken a long time ago. So we had to climb rocks and cross the river multiple time and it was really an adventure for us walking in slippers. We were so thankful to our guides/ drivers for helping us to find the best way to climb.
Our way back was the same until we arrived the stairs. Climbing stairs looks more difficult for us than climbing rocks and crossing the river.
In our way, on the waterfall, we met people which gave up because of their big bags. Is not impossible to go to Casaroro Falls but try not to carry to many or heavy baggage.
For Casaroro Falls we didn’t pay too much, just drivers and small eco tax which cost 10 php.
Red Rock Hot Spring
After a long walk in the forest and a short and cold bath at Casaroro Falls what was perfect for us than a good bath at Red Rock Hot Spring, also located in the municipality of Valencia. The way from waterfall to hot spring was the one that we never forget. We discover the Philippines as it is: simple, beautiful, green.
If you are going by yourself just be careful when you arrive at hot spring because of looks a little bit hidden, you might miss it. What is perfect at the end of the day than a bath at Red Rock Hot Spring and a cold beer. The place looks like from heaven, pretty quiet and private, perfect place to feel like yourself.
Cost for Red Rock Hot Spring wasn’t expensive at all, just drivers and entrance fee which is 30 php.
Don’t worry, our adventure in Dumaguete doesn’t end here, we will continue in our next post.
