Beat the heat at Kansanto Cold Spring in Badian

With summer getting hotter each year because of several factors, most of us could think about escaping it by: (1) just staying at home with the aircon on full blast, (2) hitting the beach, and (3) going on a trip to the mountains of Cebu. But how does swimming in fresh cold spring waters sound to you? Yes, I want that too!
