How do you get to Badian?
If you’re staying in Cebu City, and a pickup from your tour company is not included, then use the Ceres Bus. Their yellow buses will bring you to almost every point on Cebu Island.
Taking the bus to Badian:
- Go to the Cebu South Terminal
- Take the Ceres Bus (yellow bus)
- Bato via Barili route (tell the driver to drop you at Kawasan Falls)
This will cost you around 120 PHP (2.11 USD)/pax and take about 3 hours to get there.
Where to stay while Canyoneering?
Moalboal is very close to Badian, but keep in mind that this cheaper option can be fully booked due to the lack of accommodations.
Another option would be Cebu City, though it’s quite far away from Badian (around a 3-hour drive). However, some tours offer a free pick-up and drop-off from here.
