Talisay

Home to not only Cebu’s finest lechon but also to butterflies, crocodiles, resorts, and many more; Talisay City is a must-visit while in Metro Cebu! It is named after the abundance of magtalisay trees in the area.

Talisay is home to Crocolandia and Talisay City Butterfly Park. Crocolandia, the first of its kind in all of Central Visayas, is not only a sanctuary for crocodiles, it’s also home to several other animals including civets, rufous hornbills, ostriches, monitor lizards, mynas, iguanas, squirrels, turtles, peacocks, deers, Visayan warty pigs, more birds, and more lizards. The park is also breeding the critically endangered Philippine Crocodile.

Aside from the park itself, Crocolandia also has a museum, a library, gardens, and fishponds. It is a great place for your kids. After a trip to see some interesting animals, take them to the Talisay City Butterfly Park located only a few minutes away!

The Butterfly Park is one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines; it houses different kinds of butterflies and they made sure to keep them healthy and happy.

Another must-visit in Talisay is the Lagundi Reef. Hundreds of species of corals lie underneath this part of the sea and it’s absolutely thriving with thousands of colorful fishes and other aquatic animals. It’s deemed as one of the most popular places to dive and snorkel in the entire country. So better get your gear ready!

For those who want to have a little adventure — go to the Igutan Cave. This is a relatively small cave but fear not! What lies inside would amaze you: it’s filled with gorgeous rock formations, both stalactites and stalagmites.

And legend has it, there are spirits lingering inside the cave — probably of dead American and Filipino soldiers who used the cave as a refuge back in the Second World War. And be sure to look for the small falls that cascades from inside the cave!

Speaking of the Japanese War, Talisay was one of the few cities which were critical in the defense against the Japanese Imperial Army. The city was the center of intelligence operations of the Filipino guerillas resisting against the Japanese army. Talisay was also one of the places where the Americans landed in preparation of liberating the country from the Japanese. The Liberation Park was put up in honor of this. The park is now one of the most popular places for the locals to hang out in.

Talisay has also many resorts where guests can stay in and relax. Aqua Cainta Resort, Rafol’s Sealights Resort, and Villa Teresita Resort are few of the resorts with large swimming pools and slides ideal for any age! All you have to do is just pick which one you want to stay in.
