10 Adventures You Shouldn’t Miss Out in Davao

It is no longer a secret that Davao is just the perfect destination to visit when you are looking for a place that will feed your thirst for adventure. But when planning our vacation, all of us try to fit in as much activities and places to visit as we can in our itinerary but sometimes because of this we even get confused of what to include already. 

To lessen the stress and the confusion for you,  I listed down the best adventures out there in Davao that you MUST try. This Davao tour is definitely going to be one for the books!

As nerveracking as it may seem at first, once you are there attempting to water raft, you will continue to long for more time.  There is a thrill that you will get as the current tries to move you, as the rapids try to push you. If pushing yourself to the limits is what you want, then this is a must include activity on your list.

The highest mountain found in the Philippines, why would you want to miss out on the opportunity on climbing it? Challenge yourself and see the wonderful view you will get when you reach the top, it is a view like no other. Another thing to cross out off your bucketlist!

If you want another water adventure, Maxima Aqua Fun is the place to go in Davao. Their waterslide is quite popular for a reason, it is because it may seem like “just another water slide” at first glance but it sure will get your adrenaline running once you take that slide.

Looking for an opportunity where you can face your fear of heights? There is no better activity than the adventure offered at Eden Park in Davao, one of the best places to explore in Davao. Enjoy the view and the environment at Eden as you cycle and/or swing your way across the nature park. You might get a little cold feet at first but the entire view, I assure you, is worth it.

Maybe you want something more heart thumping. Maybe that sky swing and the sky cycle is just not enough for you. There is no need to worry, the management takes proper care of the equipment. Just grit up and hold your breath because the scene is breathtaking.

There are many things to see in Davao, one of them is the treasure beneath the surface of the sea. It would definitely be a delight for you to see the famous and undeniably beautiful ecosystem found in Talicud island. Enjoy getting up close and personal with the fishes. Then you can just sit and relax after at the beach.

If you are goping to see more magical and mystical places during your vacation, Epol Falls may just be the answer you are looking for. Epol falls is not entirely known to many visitors in Davao so visiting it would definitely be a peaceful experience. The cascading falls, the soothing cool water, and the uniquely formed rocks gives the entire falls an enchanted look.

Feeling adventurous? This may not be the highest mountain here in the Philippines but it sure is one of the most difficults climbs you will have in the country, even regular climbers have found this mountain quite a bit of a challenge to climb. But of course, nothing great comes easy, meaning once you get on top of that mountain, you will feel a sense of accomplishment for conquering such a difficult task.

Another climb that you can include on your list. The great thing about exploring Sicao falls is that it is fairly easy to climb but at the same time, this falls is yet another place to experience something enchanting. The falls is definitely a picture perfect shot you can post anywhere.

Not everything beautiful is seen under a bright light, the cathedral cave in Davao gives you another interesting and unique experience of seeing something totally different from what you would usually associate with something wonderful. Spelunking at the cathedral cave is a famous activity because of its unique rock formations inside.

On your Davao vacation trip, ditch the usual spots and activities, and try out these not-so-popular but definitely heart thumping activities. Experience the best Davao tour!
