The town of Barili now offers dolphin-watching and all-terrain vehicle adventure (ATV) as their new tourism activities. With these, they have been poised as the “new rockstar in ecotourism adventure in Cebu Island.”
Because of the continuous dolphin-sighting in the waters of Japitan and Hilasgasan, a dolphin-watching activity will be opened to tourists.
Barili Mayor Garcia said that a resolution is being crafted to establish guidelines most especially in striking a balance between ecotourism as an economic opportunity in Barili and the continued conservation initiatives in Tañon Strait and its marine species as stipulated in Proclamation No. 1234 signed by former President Fidel Valdez Ramos in 1998.
If you’re up for an extreme activity, their ATV Adventure is now officially open. Sure to give all adrenaline junkies their cravings, this adventure covers a total of 12 kilometers of rough road, mud, cliff and limestone wall, and an awesome vantage view of Tañon Strait, the western skyline and its perfect display of sunset moments.

The Barili ATV Adventure costs from around ₱350-840 per head promo rate (regular rate is ₱600-800) depending on the package or level of difficulty.
