Bacalla Woods Campsite in San Fernando Cebu may not be new to Cebuanos. A chill out camping spot where you can disconnect to the city life even if you’re not too far away from the Metro. With my weekend wanders project, I decided to experience the camping experience, in a legit camping site!
Things to Remember:
- Bring a mosquito repellant. If you’re planning to stay overnight in Bacalla Woods, please don’t forget to bring a mosquito repellant. You’ll be camping in the middle of the forest, so expect mosquitos all over the place.
- No cellular signal. It’s the perfect place to disconnect. There won’t be any cellular signal (all network).
- You can cook although it would be best to bring your own cook set.
