Having been living in Cebu’s North all my life, I've just recently heard from friends and other bloggers as they share their great experience at Esoy Hot Spring- A hot, sulfuric spring that emerged on the side of one of the mountains of Duyan, Catmon from volcanic activity underneath.
This sparked my curiosity to visit the place but never actually found the time do so until my wife and friends got together and agreed for us to while the time there, have a picnic, talk over drinks and experience firsthand the spring’s natural amenities.
One Saturday, we went there and had a great time frolicking about the place’s offerings which includes: hot spring pools, river trek, waterfalls and explore the caves below the mountain. We were also guided by the none other than the very friendly resort owner, boss “Esoy” himself who oversaw that we were properly following safety instructions and have our life vests on while heading down the hanging bridge, swim in the river and walked upstream to see the whole place out.
Overall it’s another great experience that fits a traveler’s journal and I’d say is a must try for everyone. Should you need help in getting there, just take note of these: the resort sits roughly around 2-3 kilometers away from the highway and you need to turn left inside Duyan, Catmon. Signages abound the road so getting there is not a problem. In terms of transportation in case you’ll not be bringing one, “habal-habal” cycles are also in plenty.
Below are some photos that we took from our trip to give you a better glimpse of the place. Enjoy!
