Guide on Getting There
Starting Point (from any part in Cebu City or your hotel)
- Get a taxi or any public transportation that can take you to Cebu South Bus Terminal (a few blocks from E-Mall and Colon)
- At the Cebu South Bus Terminal, you can then take a bus ride to Bato via Barili and jump off at Kawasan Falls in badian which usually costs around PHP120. Travel time is about 2-3 hours depending on traffic and the speed of the bus. Make sure you took the bus that goes to Bato via Barili since the other bus that goes to Bato via Oslob will never pass Badian.
- Inform the driver or bus conductor to drop you off at the Matutinao Church in Badian.
- Upon arriving at the church, a flock of local tour guides will offer you help in reaching the waterfalls (the scenic forest trail is very easy to follow so hiring the services of these guides are unnecessary). Don’t bother asking them on how to get to Kawasan falls since you can just follow the other tourist or the signs that tells you which way to go. The trek uphill is about 15 minutes, once you reached the first main waterfalls, you can continue to the second one by following the same trail for another 15 minutes.
