Airasia fly’s from Singapore to Cebu. We took a late Friday night flight.
Our tour Operator picked us at the airport and drove to Cebu’s city for a short nap. With a morning call around 4.30am we drove to at Barangay Malabago which was a 3-4hours ride from Cebu with a pit stop at a favorite store of Jollibee for morning breakfast.
WHAT TO WEAR?
The first most important thing to wear is safety helmet. Followed by some dri fit clothes, preferably long sleeve shirt to avoid cuts or abrasion while you jump. Do wear aqua shoes which provide good grips specially climbing on the mossy rocks. Avoid wearing sandals at all cause.
