Florentino’s Eco Park: Chill and cozy with a breathtaking view in Balamban

Apart from its rich culture, delicious local food and friendly community, one of the best things about Cebu is its proximity – almost everything you want to do is just a few hours drive away from the city. Pristine white beaches? Head on to Alcoy or Badian’s Lambug Beach in Southern Cebu. Affordable to luxurious resorts, or island hopping? There’s a lot in Northern Cebu. And if you’re looking for a quick escape from the city and want to just chill and enjoy the fresh air and scenic mountain view, the best place is to go West – from Sirao to Busay to Balamban.

Guess what? There’s a new attraction slash dining bistro in Balamban that will surely capture the hearts of the Cebuanos and tourists alike. Introducing Florentino’s, pegged as the Little Tagaytay of Cebu primarily because of its chill and cozy outdoor ambiance – the breathtaking view and the foggy weather.

  3. Thanks for sharing those beautiful pictures! This place would be a nice alternative to Tagaytay because of what happened recently.

  4. The place is very magnificent itself no need of making it a second rate by calling it “little tagaytay”. There’s no volcano there. Just describe the beauty of the place in comparison of Tagaytay or any other place rather than branding it like those other fools are doing.
