The mountains of southern Cebu are blessed with rich and fertile soil, cool climate, plenty of sunshine, and lots of moisture. Furthermore, locals have perfected the art of farming, the knowledge of the craft handed down from generation to generation. As such, southern Cebu is perfect for growing fresh vegetables of all kinds. The vegetables here are so high in quality that southern Cebu has now become the main source of the region’s vegetable supply. Segment 5 of the Cebu Highlands Trail took us across Cebu’s vegetable basket.
The Philippines has over 7,000 islands. But not all these islands are accessible by normal means. In fact, some of them, such as Seco Island remain raw, unadulterated, and almost unexplored. Her visitors are only the denizens of the sea and the few local fishermen who ply the Sulu Sea. This virgin white spot in the middle of the deep blue never fails to dazzle the wandering mind. Thanks to the generosity of Katahum Tours, Team Sweetie—together with various Pinoy travel bloggers, vloggers, and influencers—were able to set foot on Seco Island.

Mt. Hibok-hibok in Camiguin has always been in our sights since we started mountaineering. And there’s good reason that it is. At 1,332 meters above sea level, it is one of the most active volcanoes in the Philippines. It is a part of the Pacific Ring of Fire, and thus has a history of violent eruptions. All these gave it a certain charm that is impossible for us to resist. So we strapped on our Deuter Alpine backpacks, ready for an awesome adventure!
The first Camiguin Dive Festival poised the Island of Fire as an upcoming world-class dive destination. And it’s about time. Surrounded by crystal clear waters and magnificent reefs, and being a volcanic island, Camiguin has a lot of surprises when it comes to diving. We got a taste of Camiguin’s spectacular diving adventures at the magnificent Black Forest.
