MOLOBOLO SPRING IN TUBURAN, CEBU
Molobolo resort is one of the popular places to be refreshed and relaxed in Tuburan Municipality, Cebu Province, Philippines.
Tuburan means ‘source of water’ or spring in Cebuano or Bisayan language. The springs of this place are the greatest endowment to the inhabitants of this area.
The cold spring water is directly being pooled into pools built under the green canopies of ancient trees--making the water much cooler.
This refreshing pool water attracts visitors from all over the province and guests from somewhere else.
It takes more than 2 hours by bus from Cebu City, but lucky for those who are closer to this spring resort.
Let’s find out more…
NICE FEATURES OF MOLOBOLO
The spring water is being channeled into two big pools to utilize its freshness by visitors from the locale and distant or foreign guests.
There are pipes underneath these two swimming pools that go to the sea (in close proximity) to keep the water flowing out and the water inside always fresh and clean.
The bigger pool is about 7 feet deep and is intended for adults and good swimmers. The other and smaller pool is for kids who are mostly the frequent and the biggest in number among users. That’s probably because families come to enjoy the place with their children than most adults do.
The canopy of the trees that blankets the pools keep away the sunlight, thus, making the spring water much cooler and rejuvenating to be enjoyed with.
RENTING FACILITIES & RATES
The Molobolo Spring management only charges very cheap entrance fees to users (5pesos for adults and 2pesos for kids).
The parking fee for 4-wheelers is Php100 and 25 for 2-wheelers (motorbikes).
There are only two types of cottages available for rent. These are open cottages that can be used only for a day (not for overnight since it has no walls but only roof, seats and tables).
The bigger cottages can be rented for Php300 while the smaller type is Php150. Guests and visitors are allowed to bring their own food supplies and are even permitted to prepare or cook inside the facility, but only in some designated areas.
Of course, you can buy something to eat or drink from the stores around but might not be so satisfying if you wish to enjoy the cool spring with nice food and drinks.
Karaoke, Souvenirs, etc.
Yes, there are other entertaining and interesting things you can find in the surrounding and within this spring resort.
For example, you can rent a karaoke machine available if you wish to practice singing or dare to do so!
In addition, if you want to bring home some gifts for your friends or just for the sake of keeping memorable things, you can buy local products being sold at some shops around (jewelry boxes, decors, accessories made of seashells, etc).
It would be nice and kind of you to support the local livelihood of these inhabitants by purchasing their homemade products. Of course, please do make a bargain if you think they overpriced. That’s your call!
