Cebu Happy World Museum

Reviewed By Robert Paul C

Went with our neice and nephew and they both had a blast! Staff were courteous and more than willing to help. Place was clean and the art pieces were unique. Some of them are common though but good enough if you havent seen them in other "trick museums". The final piece was great, set in a huge room where your photos will look awesome when taken at the right angles! I wont spoil the surprise! Better head there to experience them!

Magellan Shrine

Reviewed By mojorayjones - Northern California

Well, know your history. You should have some idea of who Magellan was when visiting the Philippines and Mactan. It's quite a story about his fate came to be, so worth Reading up on. The park and shrine are well done. I suggest going in the evening as a evening stroll and get some breeze off the water while reflecting on the the events told. Also the surviving Spaniards left a few days after Megellan's death and continued to sail back to Spain, thus circumnavigating the world for the first known time ever and proving the Earth is round.

Let me tell you, I lived in the Philippines for 3 years. I went diving with a lot of different instructors. Here's the difference between these guys and everyone else:
- Safety first: Murphy & TJ are great. They will go over the dive plan with you ahead of time, teach you the signals and what to expect, then do a practice dive in shallow water just to increase your comfort before you go on the dive.
I've been to several other dive shops that just care about numbers and aren't by your side when you need them.
I trust my life in their hands.
Another point, if you want to go on a vacation and dive around the best spots in the Philippines, they can coordinate the whole thing and take you so you don't have to worry about how to get there, where to stay.
The whole team is filled with professionals with 10+ years of experience each. They are diving almost every day.
Not only did they provide a great diving experience, they also helped me get some great deals on dive equipment.
I've had the pleasure of going diving with them all around the Philippines.
What can you do for them after they give you the most amazing experience? Buy them a beer and write a review.
Thank you Murphy, TJ, PJ, Robby, and the rest of your team.

Caohagan Island

Reviewed By พัลลภ ส

If you are heading to Olango, you can visit Caohagan island as well, this is one of the best place for island hopping in Cebu island most tourist came for a day to snorkel and swimming , hire a pumpboat and make the most of it in this island. Recommend not go inside the island please swim around there when the boat stop...

San Vicente Marine Sanctuary

Reviewed By tazman1099 - Anchorage, Alaska

Not the best snorkeling site, but if you are staying on Mactan Island or in Cebu City and don't have time to go to the great dive spots, this is close and cheap.
Ferry ride was 12 pesos each way. Tricycle ride to the sanctuary was 60 pesos each way (though tourists usually have to pay 150). To go on the boardwalk was 25 pesos, 75 pesos to swim/snorkel.
Water is only waist deep, but there is a lot of fish, starfish, and coral to see.
Definitely worth the trip while in Cebu City. However, do not get suckered into the island hopping trips that cost several thousand pesos per person!

Marina Mall

Reviewed By LeisureTraveler8888 - Cebu City, Philippines

Last visited 2017. Been here many times. A small mall. The main attraction for me is the supermarket. If I arrive early to pick up somebody I normally kill time there. There are cell phone shops, DVD shops, two drugstores, travel agencies and many restaurants.
The supermarket is complete. Many Koreans frequent the place.

Virgen dela Regla National Shrine

Reviewed By MijnlieverdFH - Amsterdam

Most people still come here for their pledge. I heard some also would come here to guide them during national board examinations could it be for education or nursing or any courses they like to passed during the examination.
I do not know what happened but i heard many times they will visit this parish for guidance.
