Backpacking in Cebu South: Oslob, Samboan, and Dalaguete on a Budget

Backpacking in Cebu SouthCebu is a paradise. Everything that you wish to find are here; white sand beaches, pristine waterfalls, hot springs, rich aquatic resources, exotic food and culture, smiles, and many many more. I cannot express my happiness that I am living in such a rich province. There is so much to see and explore.

For the long weekend of July, me and my special someone decided to have our very first legit adventure trip together. I decided that we go south of Cebu because I am just very thrilled to see the Whale Sharks in Oslob. Being the type of person who is in a tight budget I urged my companion that we visit four (4) tourist spots in one (1) trip to make our backpacking trip worth it since municipalities in Cebu can easily be visited. We went to Oslob, then Samboan, then Dalaguete for this trip.
