Take an Extreme Adventure or Just Chill at Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa

The last weekend of February had us driving to UPLB to fetch Ralph who went on an overnight debate competition. Since February 25 was declared as an official holiday, we thought that it would be the best time to spend the night at a resort in Los Baños. It was a last minute decision so I failed to reserve us a room at the Makiling Onsen Spa. Thankfully, Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa was just a few hundred meters and a phone call away.

It was actually my husband first discovered Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa. He saw a viral post on Facebook about it and tagged me. I didn't realize that it was also located in Los Baños until our car drove past its signage along the highway. Luck was on our side when I booked because there were still a few rooms available. As the night passed, we saw guests coming and checking in the rooms beside ours.

It was still early for lunch time by the time we left Bilar's Man-made Mahogany Forest that our driver decided to pass by the Sipatan Hanging Bridge at Sevilla, Bohol. For Php 10 each, we crossed the long but sturdy bamboo bridge which is supported by strong cable lines. The bridge runs above the Loboc River and is just perfect for photo ops.

We crossed the bridge and saw souvenir shops at the other side. We did not buy anything, though. We were not hungry either so we just crossed the other bridge were we passed to go back to side of the river where we started.

There was pretty nothing much to see and do here. I think we stayed for 10 minutes tops. We then proceeded with the tour to have lunch riding the Loboc River Cruise.

Sipatan Hanging Bridge is located in Sipatan, Sevilla, Bohol. To go there, tourists can ride a bus from the Dao bus terminal in Tagbilaran City. It would be best if you visit the Sipatan Hanging Bridge as part of a van rental package. We got ours at Php 3,500 for 8 hours.
