"Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all." -Helen Keller

Cebu City Waterfront Hotel and Casino

This grand casino and convention center hotel is in close proximity to shopping malls, restaurants and bars. Inside, there are 9 restaurants and bars that include Italian, Japanese, and of course, authentic Filipino food.

What are the must see places to go on the Island?

Kawasan Falls, Cebu Island

VERA DE NERO: Kawasan Falls, Philippines

A 3-4 hour transportation by car, this is a hidden gem found deep into the island. The ride through the mountains is already a sight to see, but wait until you step out of the car. It is a 10-15 minute walk through the mountains to get to the first tier of the falls. You can rent a table and a raft for a total of only $12, bring your own food or munch on native Filipino dishes made to order.

Oslob, Cebu Island

VERA DE NERO: Oslob, Cebu, Philippines

Well known for whale shark watching, you are guaranteed to spot them on your visit here! It's a remarkable experience to be able to swim and snorkel with these gentle creatures of the sea.

Tarsier Conservation, Bohol Island

VERA DE NERO: Tarsier, Bohol, Philippines

The sea port is only a 15 minute drive from the hotel, and a 3 hour ferry ride to the 10th biggest island - Bohol. Your first stop will be the Tarsier conversation.

Tarsiers are the smallest primates on earth, but are endangered species. They are nocturnal and solitary - needing 1 acre of space per tarsier. In Bohol, there are conservatories to protect the animals.

Loboc River Bohol Floating Restaurant

VERA DE NERO: Loboc Bohol River Watch, Philippines

Time for lunch! Float down one of the cleanest rivers in the Philippines. It's about an hour ride with a buffet, live music and performances.

Chocolate Hills, Bohol Island

VERA DE NERO: Chocolate Hills, Bohol, Philippines

Next stop, chocolate hills! The best months to see the hills in their chocolate color is from November to May, which is the dry season in the Philippines.


It's always fun in the Philippines!
