You can bargain with the taxis if you want but you will always pay more than the meter. It is illegal not to use the meter so if you want to, you can report them to the LTO. If a taxi refuses to use the meter, I just get out of the taxi and get in the next one, even if they change their mind as I am getting out.

The rainy season is over in february however, you can still expecty it to rain. Even in the non rainy season it can pour down.

I used to be a partner in a tourism business in cebu City. Here is the itinery for our Cebu City tour that we used to run:

You could also consider a day tour to Kawasan falls.

Travel Tips for Cebu Island

Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Parish Church

by limledi

Sto. Tomas de Villanueva Parish Church provides ample parking space for the tourists going to Kawasan Waterfalls. Parking fee is P50. It's quite safe to park there coz there are people watching your car. Diverse tourist attractions like white sand beaches, big shopping malls, waterfalls, mountain views, culture & history.

Fort San Pedro - National Museum

by ahoerner

Inside the fort there is an interesting museum where visitors meet some of the history of Cebu and its colonial past.

Interesting findings about porcelain trade between China and Europe through the Philippines.

White Beach, Moalboal

by limledi

White Beach in Barangay Saavedra has just started to develop as a tourist destination. It is much more quiet around there and the environment retains its original beauty. At the weekend locals from all over the island enjoy the white sandy beach and the clear sea. This is a paradise for nature lovers and for those who prefer it quiet.

Hagnaya Port

by limledi

Hagnaya in North Cebu is the kick off point for trips to Bantayan Island. This is where you will take a ro-ro (roll-on roll-off) ferry costing around P140 fare for one way trip. Discounts are given to children. Land trip from Cebu City to Hagnaya is about 3 hours.

"History & Beaches"

Cebu is an interesting tourism destination since it offers both historical highlights and world class resorts, breathtaking beaches and diving opportunities.

During our short stay in Cebu we could not unfortunately enjoy the beaches or diving getaways.

However we had the opportunity to discover a historical Cebu the best way, just as normal "tourists": walking around.

Cebu has been an important trade centre in the Philippines since before the 15th century. Chinese, Cambodians and Arabs were already around even before the European explorer Ferdinand Magellan arrived in 1521.

On his way back from his circunavigation trip, Magellan arrived on these shores. Upon the success of Christianizing the people of Cebu, Magellan crossed the channel of Mactan Island in attempt to Christianize the people there.

Before reaching the shore in knee-deep waters, Magellan got killed in battle against Lapu-lapu, the local Chieftain of Mactan Island. It was believed that Magellan got hit by a poisoned dart on his leg which led him to his fateful end.

Worth visiting are Fort San Pedro, a Spanish fortification on the pier area, the beautiful churches like the Basilica Minore del Santo and NiƱo and the Cathedral, and typical farm houses from Spanish colonial times.

Have fun!
