If you think you have already witnessed all the captivating beauty of Southern Cebu without visiting Aloguinsan yet, think again. Prepare to be amazed and experience Cebu’s very own huge lagoon ala El Nido, Palawan!
Bojo River is Aloguinsan’s crown jewel and has thus far been named one of the Top 100 Sustainable Destinations in the World on the occasion of World Tourism Day 2016 and Best Community-based Tourism at the ASEAN Toursim Awards 2017.
The Bojo River tour, also known as the Aloguinsan River Eco-Cultural Tour, is highlighted by a ride on the river with local fishermen interpreting the local history, the flora and the fauna of the river ecosystem. The women and children serve local cuisine and weave grasses for mats as souvenirs. Because of its outstanding ecotourism initiative, the surrounding communities were inspired to take its river tourism as a model. It will take around 3 hours to complete the Bojo River Cruise package service and environmental lessons.
