Hidden Pool within the City

The Cabin’s Lanipao

March 18, 2016

Living in the city is all about traffic, crowded places, trash everywhere, polluted air and dramas. So when it’s your rest day and you just wanted to get out from all of the shit you have, BUT you’re on a tight budget, this place would be the perfect hideout!

This not yet famous hidden pool is located at Guadalupe, Cebu City. For me it took an hour to get there since I’m from the north side, it will take 30 minutes if you’re from the city and maybe an hour from the south side. This place is owned by a couple who just recently decided to open it to¬†the public.

Sorry for the bad quality of the pictures, but feel free to check my photos during my visit.DSC_0063

Entrance Fee :

Day use – P 50

Night use – P 75

They don’t charge you any additional amount if you stay overnight.

They also have a ” bahay kubo ” which you can stay for the night or you can also bring your own tent.

Bahay Kubo – P 500 ( overnight )

Tent – not really sure I guess it’s P 20/tent

The owner also sells soft drinks, hard liquors, juice, etc. ( It only depends if she have stocks )

It’s advisable to bring your own food and drinks and don’t worry, no corkage will be charged.

It’s also best if you visit the place during weekdays so that you can fully enjoy the place. I was not able to get the owner’s contact no., but as what she said during weekends, it gets a little crowded. Also, if you’re an¬†anthophile, you’re in the right place!

Directions :

Guadalupe Church then ride a Motorbike ( fare is P20 ) and ask the driver to take you to the Cabin’s Lanipao.

Please take note that there are two pools in Lanipao, just make sure to tell the driver to take you to the Cabins.
