Only 10 minutes from the city of Tagbilaran lies a world rich with the culture and tradition of the Abatan River fisher folk and farmers.
Take a leisurely stroll around the Visitor Centre with its five village themed shops to get a glimpse of the adventure you are about to experience. These shops feature locally made craft products and food from each of the five communities along the river: Cortes, Maribojoc, Antequera, Balilihan and Catigbian.
Board a traditional bandong and head up river where your guide will delight you with traditional stories and folklore of the region. Each village offers a different experience from basket weaving workshops, tasty native snacks, family adventure activities and cultural performances of river life expressed through song and dance.
Whether you’ve got one hour to spare or a whole day, a choice of tours offers you the flexibility to create your own cultural experience along this beautiful river environment.
There is also the opportunity to hire kayaks from the Abatan River Visitor Centre to explore this beautiful river at your leisure.
