2) Explore Cebu’s Historical Landmarks and Old Churches
Christianity originally began in Cebu City in the Philippines. As a result of this, there are a large number of old church buildings within the area. It does not matter what town or city you visit, you can be sure that there will be a Catholic church there. These buildings have a lot of interesting history about them that is worth discovering.
The church’s former name was Church and Convent of Saint Augustine, as it was established by an Augustinian priest, Rev. Andrés de Urdaneta. The year 2015 is its 50th year (Golden anniversary) as a Basilica.
3) Visit the beach for a swim at Costabella Tropical Beach Resort
Costabella Resort offers travelers and guests with the breathtaking view of the coast of Mactan, embraced with white sand beach and a retreat to appreciate nature. Ideal for family outings, they have two swimming pools surrounded by premier guest rooms and restaurants.
Amenities like the Lema Filipino Spa, exercise gym, conference rooms and gift shop are available at Costabella Resort. Kiddie Korner, their child-friendly playroom is there to entertain your kids while you dip and dive.
4) Go for a hike up the Osmeña Peak
Make sure that when you visit Osmeña Peak or we commonly call Opeak, you should have enough time as it will take you approximately an hour to go up and down the peak. Nevertheless, the view and experience are breathless.
This is not recommended as a stopover or a side trip but instead the main destination. We will just include this because it is one of many favorite things to do of people visiting Cebu.
5) Experience good tasting food at Café Mezzo
