You didn’t not know it, did you? That Iligan City has a Tourism Triangle, and you’ve went to these tourist spots but you didn’t know that they are geographically located in angles of each other making an imaginary triangle shape.
I, too, for some time, until I was told of it — made me want to visit them again. Iligan City Tourism Office has called it at that, The Tourism Triangle of Iligan City. And I am bound to visit them in one day, with fellow bloggers, to show you that how to make your one day Iligan City visit —SUPER SULIT!

EXPECTED THINGS TO DO:
Tour the destinations listed, and hopefully stop by Maze Park and Macapagal Rest House along the way. We will be travelling on the road most of the time and will only trek down the ravine when we visit the Tinago Falls. When doing the 1Day Iligan City Visit, it would be advisable to have a vehicle as your service, it will lessen the travel time by a fraction, I guess. And then there are rides and experiences that is offered and that I may take. Hmmmmmmm… Drop me a line should there be anything you want me to check out for you while I’m at these places..^^
WHAT I”M Soooooo LOOKING FORWARD TO:
Taking on the free-sprited side! Fears, please don’t act up now. LOL
1] Taking a jump at Tinago Falls water basin! I’ve always swam at Tinago Falls, my ultimate wishlist is to climb on the rock wall surfaces for a jump off point into the water. I’ve seen locals and brave hearts do that. But I have to mentally psyche myself for that — plus, I am not a strong swimmer. Sigh. Any strong and good swimmers out there? Can you wait for me in the water basin and pull me up for air after my jump? LOL!
2] Visit the Paradise Park and try the Bungee Trampoline at Paradise Resort. I’ve seen videos of how it is done, and I was afraid I might not get control over it, until i saw this Bungee Trampoline Video, the kids made it look easier than the adults did doing multiple flips. If a kid could do that, I think I can, too! But I think I need a strong abdominal core to do flips, don’t I? Hmmmm…. It would be my first visit to the park with it’s amenities ready for the visitors, the last time I was there was the construction phase and I was not able to experience the services that they now offer. So, I am up for that.
