It was late last weekend Friday that I decided to visit my sister in Dipolog City. She's been inviting me to visit her and that she'd tour me around the city. I wasn't that excited, but thought, I'd give it a try. Turned out, we've had a great time! 
I have to have a courtesy call! haha This place was just in the books when I was in highschool and college. And now, I'm in Dapitan! Our National hero's place of exile. 
Like other tourists, we went checking out souvenir items. What could better be a souvenir than a shirt which you can wear wherever! I got a DAKAK shirt!
They have more items like bags, wallets, purses, household and decoration handicraft items! 
We wanted to thank Ate Diding and asked if we could have a picture with her. πŸ™‚
My sister wants to capture the beauty of the beach and the mountain. Here she is, posing like a model. πŸ™‚
We initially just wanted to check out the nearby beach, but eventually decided to check out Dakak. The famous Park and Beach Resort in Dapitan City. Thank God it's still within our budget (is it?). Lol!
Entrance fee is P1,000.00 inclusive of all amenities. P1,000.00 is consumable either in jetski, banana boat or food at their restaurant.
The best part of Dakak is still its beach! Amazing cool beach with the hot King Sun shining! Summer is really on! I had a great time cherishing and how lavishing Dakak's beach is. 
The experience won't be complete without us checking out their restaurant! Il Patio Restaurant is where you can also redeem/consume your coupon.
The best finally for a great meal is, of course, a great wine! Life's too short to drink bad wine. πŸ™‚
We took pictures at their Al Fresco Restaurant too! We feel like we were celebrities, invited to visit the place! Haha
And as we checked out the beach we took some more pictures. Being amazed with the view consumed our time. We can't help but take pictures, literally, anywhere!
Sun bathing is always an option! What say you? LOL!
We had a great pizza and pasta meal! Thumbs up on the taste! 
This was the view of Dakak beach at around 5:00 P.M. The sun is still up and shining!
We didn't notice, our time was up. We need to go back to Dipolog City. We realized it's already half past 6:00 P.M.
On our way home, we can't help but notice Dapitan's state-of-the-art City Hall.
It was an amazing Dakak experience! I am thankful we did choose to pay the entrance and experience it's grandeur! I am thankful that we did decide to check it out.
The following day, we had a tour at the shore line where the ship/vessel/barge of my sister's company was docked. I can't help but capture this scene of kids happily enjoying the waters under the heat of the sun. I can't stop myself reminiscing my good old childhood days!
I want to drive! I want to take over the bridge! haha Fuera Visita! LOL!
VIP rooms were also shown to us. And yeah, again she can't help but ask me to take a picture. πŸ™‚
I checked out the top of the ship, was fascinated at how clear and blue the skies are. Real summer scenery. 
Inside the vessel was a picture-taking spree! haha Unlimited shots! Keep clicking was the motto!
Another pose at the VIP room. 
A picture taken at the tourist area. 
This is the Lady of Good Voyage Vessel! Thank you for the accommodation! πŸ™‚ We had fun!
Join me as I explore more places soon! πŸ™‚ My Dipolog City and Dapitan City experience was a blast! And I would love to come back anytime soon. And check out more. I was not able to take some photos during our Boulevard exploration. We went there at night, and it's like MOA's seaside area. It's a great place to hang out, drink some beer, talk to friends or sing some songs! Daghang salamat Dipolog! πŸ™‚

We wanted to have a memorable Christmas event for our team at the same time use it as our bonding or team building activity. The management has decided to hold it in a venue where they could have some fun. But I was at first, a little bit skeptic. What is that place they were suggesting? Is it really fun there? I never heard of it, or if I did previously, it isn't that good since it didn't catch my attention. But because it has been decided I went with the flow. 
We prepared the budget, the staff made the necessary preparations for the event, and yes! We're there!
The scenery on our way there is already welcoming. We arrived at the venue's gate with a kiss of a beautiful spot worth capturing. 
Then I saw the eye-catching scene of the road, very familiar and nostalgic image for travellers.
This place has a lot to offer and a lot of potential. I guess they are not as known as Dahilayan Adventure Park but they're a good place for parties, events and even meetings.
But the reason why we chose this place is because of the fun were were looking for. We want adventure! So what's in here? Why did we choose this anyway? Why not the other parks? Aside from the budget, these are the things we can do here.
If you want extreme adventures, do their rappelling, not on a wall, but on real rock and soil. They have a cliff where you can have your rappelling.
This is the view from afar. That's where you'll have your Rappelling!
Bur if you just want to relax, you can have the cold water in the pool, to soothe your "hot" body! Keep calm, keep cool. Swim in the pool! πŸ™‚
The pool is near the function area too. So if you'll have an event, you can include in the package the use of the pool. So the people can enjoy the pool after the event. Something your people can enjoy.
The water is so inviting! If you are someone who wants to have sun-bathing, then this is your place! Feel the relaxing wind of the mountains and enjoy the cold water of the pool.
Do you want to spend your time over night? Check out their rates for lodging here.
 But if you want more adventures, they also have anicycling adventure. This is something that we actually did. 
We subscribed to unlimited rides so we can enjoy most of the adventure options, we had this too! The crossing of the hanging bridge, overlooking the fantastic greenery of nature. Conquering vertical limits and fears! 
And of course, they also have the common Zipline! We did enjoy this too! They have two courses for the Zipline. One is a short one going to the start of the hanging bridge, after the hanging bridge you'll have the second course of the Zipline.
On my next post, I will show our pictures on how we've enjoyed the adventures of Kampo Juan! Now you'll have a new idea of a place where you can have your team building! Have fun!
So for the rates, I guess it's here:
