Our Quiet Candijay Quickie

A few years ago, I started to come up with short travel blogs on places to go to for the summer. I strongly believe that before you even start planning for possible trips abroad, you should take a look at the many wonderful sights to see here in the Philippines. I kid you not. There are so many world-class sights here in our beloved country. Coupled with the great hospitality and the sumptuous cuisine, voila! The Philippines is certainly a paradise that we all can be proud of!

A few days ago, we started this year’s Suggestions for Summer with a quick trip to historic, heroic Corregidor (pls read: Remembering Corregidor).

With the nearby beaches of Anda, Candijay can really get you high. So here’s the second of our Summer Suggestions Series for 2018, Candijay’s Can-Umantad Falls.

The first 2-3 miles of the road is great, before it starts to get rough and a bit challenging. Best to take a motorbike on the way there. Just follow the road…
