Budlot Spring and Taginis Falls in Moalboal are one of Cebu’s secrets. Still largely unheard of, Taginis Falls and Budlot Spring are starting to generate interest thanks to word-of-mouth visitors. They may not be the tallest like Mantayupan, as impressive as Kawasan, or gushing with tonnes of water, but they are a lot of fun. For a bit of adventure, and to visit somewhere unique, Taginis Falls is one of the must-see waterfalls in Cebu.
A visit to Taginis Falls is like going to a natural waterpark, complete with a couple of slides and jumps.
If chasing waterfalls is on your bucket list, Taginis Falls is an easy day trip from Moalboal and this hidden gem shouldn’t be missed.
Located in the mountains, we drove through lush jungle, passing fields of corn and valleys filled with coconut palm trees. It’s a beautiful journey and will give you the chance to experience what it’s like to live amongst nature. We saw dogs and goats, children waved and adults smiled saying hello. This is life in the Philippines at it’s very best.
In a series of articles showing day trips from Moalboal, Moalboal Eco Lodge share all you need to know about Taginis Falls and Budlot Spring.
FACT: Switching your toiletries to plastic free or zero waste will give you more luggage space, AND reduce your suitcase or backpack weight. Great news if you are taking a trip and want to use a small bag, especially if you are travelling by plane.
In future travel, flying under “the new normal” means some airlines (such as British Airways) are only allowing hand luggage which can fit underneath your seat. If you usually take a few toiletries in your carry-on bag in case of lost luggage, moving to plastic free options will be perfect for you.
Overhead lockers may be out of use in post-Coronavirus lockdown, minimising touchable surfaces within the plane and reducing unnecessary movement. However, this does mean only essentials can be taken on board such as your passport, mobile phone, hand sanitiser, face mask, pen, small snack etc.
Airlines may also be reducing the weight limit for checked in baggage. The heavier the aircraft, the more it cost to fly and airlines are already struggling after months of being grounded. To keep ticket prices as affordable as possible but still recouping lost revenue, airlines have to reduce costs any way they can.
By switching your toiletries to plastic free or zero waste, you will save valuable weight, save space, the 100ml liquid limit doesn’t apply, and you don’t have to worry about liquids spilling over your clothes.
Moalboal Eco Lodge share how you can make a few easy plastic free and zero waste changes to your toiletries.
