You may wish to post this flyer in your office/school bulletin board. You can download a copy here.
This is generally a place for people to relax, hang out, socialize, rub elbows with and let time pass by. It is the “somewhere” for early afternoon get-togethers, midafternoon meetings, late afternoon to early evening dates, and late evening catch-ups. With very accommodating staff even if you and your friends had laughed their whole building off, warmed the seats dry, and tasted and ate everything on their counter.

+Bring your own provisions. There are no stores around the area.

Pinay Travelista Notes:
+ They also have this cave with bats, it is not yet accessible for the public, and we dare not go near it. If you’ve ventured near a cave with bats in it. You’ll know exactly why. From the noise they make, and the eerie feeling of darkness, to the foul smell they have — it’s best check it out but to stay away.
+ The Park also has this Adventure Park that has a Zipline from the canopy through the woods, down across the other side of the river bank,l and across back the other side again. It has 4 lines to “zipped on” and it goes for a fee of 200Php/person. You get to zipline across the rushing waters ofrom the waterfall.

+ Should you take the taxi heading for the city proper, never fix a price of more than 100PhP. It should only be roughly 70-100PhP. The route is only about 4-5km. Or ask that they turn on their meter —- and ALWAYS ask if they issue a receipt. If they say they can’t because they do not have it, or for any other reasons, WALK AWAY. It’s not that they are bad drivers, just hopeful that they can straightened their act like the taxi services in other cities.

One must-stop-over is one of its pride — the Tinago Falls. The site for Star Cinema’s Forever & A Day movie by KC Conception & Sam Mibly. No, it wasn’t Ma. Cristina Falls but this other beauty. It is 13.8km away from the city proper and is accessible through two points, Brgy. Buruun, Iligan City and its neighboring municipality the Linamon, Lanao Del Norte. Tinago is the local word for hidden, being hidden in a deep ravine. Tinago Falls used to have a resort, mini zoo, playground and vast developed land area for a vacation one would truly enjoy with the family. Unfortunately, the resort has closed down and what is now left is a rundown buildings and cottages structures.

When you’re planning to go on a travel, it *i will never tire in saying this* pays to plan ahead. Getting that plane ticket and packing up those backpacks are not enough. You also have to scout around for accommodations, possible food haven, and tourist or backpackers friendly area in the country you’re visiting — in the web. That way, you can anticipate the expenses you will be having during and for the entire trip. Think: BUDGET!
This is where you might need an extra detail on current currency conversions.
Read that again: CURRENT currency conversions.
Since the market fluctuates day by day, it’s best to check the currency conversion and get updated with any significant changes. Such change may be the only reason why the long awaited trip might get cancelled.
I came upon this site: CoinMill.com – The Currency Converter that is updated and super helpful when you’re looking for currency conversion sites. This site is easy to navigate and it lists all countries and it’s currencies conversion in one single entry. You can input an amount and have it converted to the corresponding amount of the currency of the country you’re eyeing up for a travel for and the rest of the countries listed.
Try this one up. You’ll find this helpful and easy to use.
Have a safe and happy travel you guys..^^
