OFF THE BEATEN TRACK - VILLA BUDLOT
Moalboal is known for its white sand beaches and one of the most popular beach destinations in Cebu. Last February, we embarked on an off the beaten Moalboal itinerary instead, we went to Villa Budlot and Taginis Spring which is situated in the mountainous barangay of Bala. If you want to commune with nature, this is the perfect place for you. 

Grateful to my sister and brother-in-law, Jo/Kurt of JCK Designs for bringing us (our family) to this place for my birthday celebration, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Such a perfect place to relax, unwind and have quality time with each other. There is no wifi there and the cellphone signal is fluctuating and almost impossible, but you can play catch up. The good thing is, it's a perfect place to disconnect to connect, giving us more time to bond and spend quality time with each other.

If you love singing there is a videoke machine that is just 2 for 5 pesos.

ENTRANCE:
10 pesos - entrance only
50 pesos - if you want to use the pool
150 - 500 pesos - cottages
1500 - 2500 pesos - room rates

OPENING HOURS:
7:00am to 5:00pm

WHAT TO BRING
Food and water but there is a store there. If you don't want to bring food, order it in advance.

TAGINIS FALLS
Taginis Falls is a waterfall nearby Villa Budlot, someone from the villa will guide you how to get there, it's very near from the resort but if you've been to Kawasan Falls or some other falls in the South, don't expect too much. (Watch video above)

HOW TO GET THERE
Option 1: Go to South Bus Terminal and ride a bus going to Moalboal then ask to be dropped at Gaisano Grand Mall Moalboal then hire a tricycle there or a motorbike (habal habal) then tell the driver to bring you to Budlot (Villa Budlot and Taginis Spring). Fare for habal habal varies so negotiate in advance starting at 25 pesos but you will most likely pay 50 pesos (one way) or more. Travel time from Gaisano Grand Mall Moalboal to Villa Budlot is 15-20 minutes. For bus schedule going to Moalboal - click here or call South Bus Terminal at 253-3830 or 2534119.

Option 2: Go there by a private vehicle and once you reached Gaisano Grand Mall Moalboal, you will see Petron gas station, use that small street next to Petron and just follow the signs where it says Budlot, it should get you there. Expect for an adventure though if you don't have a guide. You know you are in the right direction when you pass by these places/signages: Divine Mercy Memorial Park, Barangay Bugho, Barangay Bala and this signage "Budlot". Alternatively, you can contact the number listed on this Facebook page, 0917 743 8478 (not sure though if the number is still working when you read this).
