3. MARMOL CLIFF

Ever wonder why it’s called such? According to our research, it is called marmol (“marble”) because the stones are as shiny and as smooth like those of the marble stones. These stones are said to sparkle when the sun-rays hit the stones.

After reaching the town, you can get a ride on a motorcycle for hire to take you to the place. If you are bringing your own vehicle, it is advisable to leave it in the town since it will be necessary to go through the river to get to the cliff. It is better to hire a motorcycle in going to the cliff since the drivers know how to go through the river using its shallow parts.
