Aloguinsan is a fourth income class municipality in the province of Cebu, Philippines. By road is 59 km (37 mi) southwest of Cebu City.
This trip is instant a matter of few txt and go....with my best of friend Padit and cousin Jen. Cebu is my second home so the moment i visited here i'm always trying to reach the other side of Cebu's treasured beach. the first plan is explore the place of toledo ( why in toledo? because that's the place of my cousin ) but since we miss each other long talk conversation the night after the escaped so the result is puyat tagbaw og istorya since long talk carried us to late sleep. kaya hindi nagising ng maaga kaya the plan to explore toledo has been cancelled. so we processed to our second option to reach the hermit's cove of aluguinsan.
Special acknowledgement to my dear friend Edelweiss Cutas and Jennie-lyn Bacho. ( my travel buddy )
