Edar’s: Cateel’s Cozy Lodging When You're Away from Home

The whole town of Cateel in Davao Oriental was devastated by the first typhoon to hit the region in 100 years, Typhoon Pablo. In the past four years, through the joint efforts of its people, the town is slowly getting back to normal.

Cateel’s Aliwagwag Falls has retained its splendor and is a top tourist drawer not only for its beauty but also for the thrilling adventures that visitors can try. 

The travel time from Davao City to Cateel will take 4 to 6 hours travel by land. Situated in Dacuycuy St., Poblacion, Cateel, is a very cozy place to stay in— Edar’s Place and Resto.

The solid log and concrete building of Edar’s was one of the houses that survived the devastation of Pablo. It was a place of shelter and comfort for Cateeleños and now what tourists call "home." 

After a day enjoying Aliwagwag falls, the town’s Pablo memorial, and testing the town’s spicy hot dried chili powder, Edar’s comfortable beds are perfect for a good rest.

How to Get There:

Edar’s is located at Dacuycuy Street, Poblacion Cateel, Davao Oriental.

The best way to get to Cateel is by taking a bus from Davao City via the Compostela Valley Road or Mati City Road. Buses are on daily schedule located at Davao City Overland Transport Terminal (DCOTT). These buses are operated by Mallen Express, Lyra Express, Floremel Express, and Bachelor Express.

PAL and Cebu Pacific fly daily to Davao City from Manila and Cebu. For reservations, contact Ms. Becky Edar at 0921-4766907.
