A Second Visit at Enchanted River in Hinatuan Surigao del Sur


Enchanted River is a very popular tourist spot in in Hinatuan, Surigao del Sur. Weekends and specially peak seasons, you can spot many tourist in here hence decreased the "enchantic" ambiance of the place - they said. The lagoon is so refreshing, water is cold and clear.


Still they don't allowed overnight stay on the resort. I also can't imagine myself swimming at night and sleeping in there, even though some says it's not enchanting anymore but I can still sense an enchantic feeling while swimming in there late afternoon, specially at the very corner - on the dark blue portion of the lagoon.

If you wear goggles and can see underwater cleary, it's really creepy. You can see large variety of fishes on the lagoon. The water is flowing and the current was a little bit strong when we got there.


The resort provides a vehicle service, transporting guests to the highway. Van and other private vehicles are not allowed to enter. Overall, Enchanted River is still enchanting as it is. Would love to come back again for the 3rd time.

Still Majestic Tinuy-an Falls in Surigao del Sur


The beauty of Tinuy-an Falls remains the same as years passed by. Last time I visited the place was 2011 - check out here and still it's majestic. It was summer that time and due to El Nino, the fall curtians weren't that thick unlike when you visit it during rainy season. The falls is heavy and it looks much better.


This year 2016, our family planned a trip and decided to visit Surigao since many of my love ones haven't visited the place - so it's a go. As usual Tinuy-an Falls doesn't run out of tourists specially during weekends.


They made stairs to easily reach the other portion of the falls located at the top but be carefull as stairs are steep and slippery.


You can even go further at the top to see more scenic view. I remember when visiting before, there are lots of snakes around the corner of the falls and now snakes are nowhere to be seen.


We also enjoyed doing bamboo rafting to reach near the curtain of the falls. No one is allowed to go beyond the curtains because water were so strong and heavy. Rafting rental is 300 includes guide.
