Medellin is dubbed as “Cebu’s Ecotourism Adventure Capital.” The town is located just right next to Cebu’s northernmost tip of the island.

One best destination for adventure-seekers is Caputatan Norte. A once quiet and idle hill, now has a Tarzan jump and 2 zip lines.

Medellin is also called as the “sugar bowl” of the province because most of its 7,400-hectare land area is a sugarcane plantation.

It has a 7-kilometer stretch of unspoiled white sand beaches, which can become an instant perfect destination for beach bums this summer.

The town is a mixture of everything beautiful. It shows from its white sand beaches loaded with corals up to its scenic greens and rolling hills.

When you’re in Medellin, visit the Gibitngil Island. It will be totally worth it. You can ride a pump boat (30 minutes) at only Php1,500 and is already good for 20 persons. Prepare also an entrance fee of Php10 per head.

Be amazed of its clear waters and magnificent rock formations. Also try their 10-feet and 40-feet diving boards and splash all the way to 20-feet deep water.

To help you with your trip, contact the Municipal Government of Medellin at (032) 436-2031. You can avail of their services at a minimal fee.

How to Get There

From Manila, you can fly to Cebu (estimated cost of Php3,000++, round trip, 45 minutes). And from the Cebu Airport, you will need to hire a cab (minimum price of Php400.00, 20-30 minutes) to go to the actual city and to your destination.

From Cebu, you can take a bus (3-hour drive) at the North Bus Terminal in Mandaue City. You can also take a bus heading to Medellin’s neighboring towns: San Remigio, Daanbantayan or Bogo. Another easier way is to get a bus with the “Kawit” route as it goes directly to the town. Several tricycle are available for the Medellin town proper.
