Dalaguete is home to the Summer Capital and Vegetable Basket of Cebu. But, this southern Cebu town also has its own cold spring, the Obong Spring. Since it is located close to the coast, the spring has a good mixture of salty and fresh water. The Obong Spring is a good place to soothe one’s muscles after trekking up the highlands of Mantalongon.
The Uragay Spring or the Uruguay Spring is located in the northern town of Carmen. The spring is one of the go-to places of the residents of the town when the weather gets too hot. It offers a refreshing respite from the heat, particularly during the summer months.
Similar to the Obong Spring, the Guiwanon Spring of Tabogon also offers a good mixture of salty and fresh water. The place is relatively undeveloped, which makes it ideal for nature lovers who want to take a dip in a cold spring. Since there are a limited number of cottages at the place, it may be a good idea to visit the Guiwanon Spring earlier in the day before the place gets crowded.
