Adventure-seekers in Cebu need not go far to get their adrenaline fix for the weekend. They can drive over to the municipality of Liloan and check out what Papa Kits Marina & Fishing Lagoon has to offer.
Located just around an hour’s drive away from the Queen City of the South, Papa Kits is an adventure park and resort offering an experience of a lifetime for its guests. The resort was initially established as a fishing and dining destination for local and foreign tourists as well as residents of the Province of Cebu. The resort was developed by the Menca Development Corporation, the same company managing Nalusuan Island Resort and Marine Sanctuary in Cordova, Mactan and the Estaca Bay Garden Conferences Resort in Compostela.
Papa Kits offers land-based and water-based activities, including biking, horseback riding, fishing, boating, ziplining and wakeboarding, among others. Two activities adrenaline junkies would love are ziplining and wakeboarding. The 800-meter zipline gives guests an aerial view of the resort as they zip past the mangrove area and across Silot Bay. Wakeboarding is another activity thrill-seekers can try. The wakeboard facility in Papa Kits is the first wake cable park in Cebu.
In addition to these adrenaline-inducing activities, guests can also try climbing a 40-foot wall, tackle the jungle obstacle course, or conquer their acrophobic tendencies at the hanging bridge. Guests can also opt to take a relaxing tour of the resort on horseback. A guide will help them steer the horse if this will be their first time riding a horse.
After all of these activities, you would definitely start to feel hunger setting in. You can try your hand at fishing by renting a rod and trying to catch your lunch. You can have your catch cooked or you can take it home for dinner later. The resort also has a native restaurant offering fresh fish and other seafood for its guests, the Resto 1 restaurant. The Clubhouse is another dining area situated along Silot Bay that can host functions and celebrations.
You can also book a room at the resort, which has six Superior Rooms, six Deluxe Rooms and one Family Room. The Superior Rooms are priced at PHP 2,500 per night while the Deluxe Rooms are priced at PHP 2,800 per night. On the other hand, the Family Room is priced at PHP 3,800. You can also book these rooms for Day Use, which has a different pricing scheme.
The resort is accessible to both public and private vehicles. If you are taking public transportation, you can ride jeepneys marked 25, 26 or 27 and get off just before the Liloan Municipal Hall. You can also tell the driver to drop you off close to the entrance of the resort. If you are using your own vehicle, you can take the national road and make a right turn just before the municipal hall. Gate 1 of Papa Kits Marina & Fishing Lagoon is visible from the main road. You can also pass through the Cansaga Bridge in Mandaue City. This route will take you through the North Coastal Road and once you reach the Catarman Bridge, you should see the Clubhouse of the resort. Gate 2 of the resort is located just beside the basketball gym.
Papa Kits Marina & Fishing Lagoon is definitely a place for anyone who wants some downtime from the hustle and bustle of city life. For more information, you can check out their official website or call them through (032) 505-4595.
