Bonbon Eco Park, mountain resort in Butuan
A breath taking view of the mountainous area of Barangay Bonbon can be seen along the way. If you want a little adventure then this is for you. Travelers can take their ride through a single motorcycle for 25 pesos per passenger from Bonbon proper to Eco-Park. The road to the eco park is not yet developed so be prepared of the dust and your encounter of those big trucks hauling gravel as you pass by a quarry site, few kilometers before reaching the eco-park.
The eco-park has a receiving area where one has to pay P100 that includes a free jeepney ride in going further down to the resort. If you want to view Butuan City, don’t miss the opportunity to take the right route and go up the mountain at the seminar house.
The eco-park do have a canteen but it’s not yet operational, so better bring own provisions. It has two swimming pools, for the adults and kids. The water is clean, sourced out from within the area which flows from the big pool, down to the kids’ pool, the pond and the brook from the entrance area.
