Iligan City - A Majestic Falls of Maria Christina

Maria Christina is one of Majestic Falls, it is sometimes called the "Twin Falls" as the flow is separated by a rock. When I was in grade school, I always heard this in our lecture in Hekasi and I can't believe that I  witnessed how beautiful  Maria Christina falls is.

Beautiful Maria Christina Falls
When I arrived at Cagayan De Oro City at 8:30 am I leave my things first in my hotel before headed to Iligan City. From the Cagayan Park view Hotel where I check in, I ask some of locals on how to get at Bulua Terminal, I walk  around to find a Jeep with sign board Bulua Terminal, I  find it at  2nd crossing street from my hotel the fare is P18. When I arrived in the terminal, there are 2 bus companies  offer a ride bound to Iligan City fare is P140 Air-conditioned travel time is approximately  1 hour and 20 minutes.

After 1 hour and 30 minutes I arrived in the Iligan City  and transfer a jeep going to Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant where Maria Christina falls is located. I pay 40 pesos in the ticketing booth for shuttle service, because no one splits on me for the fare, the first stop is in Botanical & Zoological Garden. there's few animals that time, because the renovation is on going.

After a couple of minutes inside the zoo I went outside to called my driver to take me in the main attraction "The Maria Christina Falls" going to the falls is not a walking distance it is a little bit far from the main gate and the staff are not allowing visitor to walk.

When I see the falls I said to myself this is it, finally we see each other I stayed almost an hour  to complete my excitement. After I leave I told maria and Christina that I will come back again soon. The driver waits me and drop off me in the main gate, I waited again a jeep going to city center to take my lunch before going back to Cagayan de oro.

  3. I love the pictures here Pao.. I only know Maria Christina Falls from the text books we had in Elementary along with the famous Pagsanjan falls... I guess this one is more popular because of the hydroelectric power Plant associated with it.. i believe that is the only one in our country
    thanks for sharing

  4. ang dami mo nang napuntahan tol ah. tuwing kelan ka nag travel? Lagi ka ba nag file ng leave?

  5. Oh my! I just came from a visit to two famous falls here in Laguna! And this one is as majestic as what I've seen during the weekend. I'm sure I'll be amazed by this once I see this personally. I hope I can visit here someday. :)

  6. I remember this too from my Sibika at Kultura subject. How near can you get to the falls? Or is there a special arrangement to get near it?

  7. I've only ever seen this from books like all the others who have commented before me. This is quite far from where I'm living now, but I do hope I get the chance to experience the majestic vibe of the falls.

  8. Wow, just hearing 'Maria Christina Falls' takes me back to grade school. Too bad you weren't able to go near it. Got to add this to my travel bucket list. Thanks for sharing!

  9. Beautiful Pictures!! It must be an adventurous trip!! :)

  11. yeah, i can remember Maria Cristina falls sa HEKASI subject. Ganda! hope to see it with my own eyes soon. :)

  12. I've only read about the place in books, but I'm sure it looks breathtaking in person. Your photos are true testament to that, for sure. :) Mari Cristina Falls has now been added to my travel list!

  13. Hubby is from Iligan and he grew up there. He told me that he misses the province so I'm wishing that he misses it enough for us to visit there soon.

  14. I really want to have a quick getaway. there are a lot of great places that I have not visited yet and Iligan is one of those. Thanks for sharing.

  15. The waterfall looks stunning. Hope you had a good time.

Kanlaon Inland Resort And Eco-Tourism #KIRAET #ColdSpring | Canlaon City, Negros Oriental

I was not expecting that the pool is super cold it just imagine like a cooler with full of ice cubes, let say the temperature is less than 15 degrees Celsius, so far this is my first time swimming experience  with a flowing fresh water pool coming from the mountain of Canlaon,  Yes! It's a fresh water.


Superior Room I was searching on the internet on where to spend a night, since my flight to Manila is early in the morning. Luckily, I found this hotel. A budget friendly and offers great service.

Bantayan Island via Estancia, Iloilo

Bantayan Island it is not a place for a shopping or an adventure. This island is all about peace. If you want to have  break in the crowded city, the noise, the pollution and the stress, then come to this peaceful island of Bantayan in Cebu and discover what Living in Paradise. My friend Dennis and I decided to have   Bantayan Island instead of Isla Gigantes in Carles, we have little idea about getting in Bantayan via Estancia, Iloilo, after our Panay Island visit we headed to Estancia and stay for an overnight because we don’t know if the route is  still working    with  pump boat crossing to Bantayan Island . Estancia Port Updated Schedule of Estancia, Iloilo to Bantayan Island vice versa We decided to do it on Monday; we left in our hotel in Iloilo around 8:00 am Sunday to catch the bus bound for Estancia in Tagbak Terminal. Travel time is approximately 3 hours and fare P180 for aircon bus. The bus leaves at 10:00 am and we arrived around 1:00pm. We stay in Pa-on Beac
