Aguinid Falls is one of the natural wonders of the Philippines. Located in the municipality of Samboan, 150 km from Cebu City, it is definitely a perfect isolated and romantic getaway. Aguinid Falls consists of several tiered waterfalls that run for a few kilometres along the Tangbo River. It is also known for its green rock formations and turquoise waters which add to the mystic and enchanting atmosphere.

The colour of the water is explained by the fact that the Tangbo River is rich in calcium. To see the falls, visitors have to do some climbing through its several levels, which means that they inevitably get wet, so make sure you wear something appropriate. Cebu area also has another popular site—Kawasan Falls, just an hour drive away. Even though it is larger, many visitors prefer Aguinid Falls for its beauty and charm.

There're two best times to visit Aguinid Falls. The first is July to October when the waterfall is full, and the flow is in full blast. However, this season is not the safest one for climbing. Thus, the second, more prudent version is the dry season, from December to June. The final decision is up to you.
