Guiwanon Cold Spring in Tabogon: 100-Peso Entrance Fee

Update: The Guiwanon Cold Spring has finally reopened after almost a year of renovation. From ₱25 to ₱50, the entrance fee has skyrocketed to ₱100 per head.

Summertime is here. Apart from hitting the beach, the best way to beat the scorching heat of the sun this season is to chill and swim in a natural yet clean cold spring.

Featured on our Facebook Page two weeks ago, the enchanting Guiwanon Cold Spring in Tabogon Northern Cebu trended on social media and reached almost one million people. It became popular for its simple and natural scenery — an unsophisticated place yet so calm, charming and unique. The water is really refreshing!

The pool is divided into two: the shallow and the deeper one (around 6 feet deep). So if you want to dive, there’s a “balete” tree near the deeper portion.

  3. Hi,

    Good Day!

    I am Jean Marie Caya from Lilo-an Cebu. My mother is from Suba 1, Tabunok, Sogod Cebu. We are planning to go there on April 6, 2019 (Saturday). More or less there will be 20 Adults, 3 teenagers and 6 kids. Now, I am a bit confused with regards to the entrance fee. Upon opening after the renovation I knew that the entrance fee is 50 pesos, but yesterday I read a post from someone, inviting us to Guiwanon and saying that the entrance fee is 150 pesos. May you please confirm to me the exact amount how much is the ENTRANCE FEE? I am really baffled which is which. I really am hoping a response from you. It will be highly appreciated.

    Thank you.
