A Guide on CDO Attractions
« on: January 12, 2011, 08:26:39 AM »
The city of Cagayan de Oro is one of the most progressive cities nationwide. Dubbed as the “Gateway to Northern Mindanao,” CDO has a vibrant tourism industry, as well as one of the best transportation facilities in the country. For these reasons, the city of Cagayan de Oro has become one of the top tourist destinations in the region. The following is a list of some of the city’s most popular attractions.


Cagayan de Oro is slowly becoming a haven for exhilarating water sports. Anyone looking forward to experiencing a fun river adventure should visit the city. Aside from its popular whitewater rafting, another type of wild water sport is currently catching lots of attention from both local and foreign water sports enthusiasts.

The city’s whitewater rafting outfitters are now starting to offer whitewater kayaking. This type of water sport requires the person to paddle through the water while he stays in a kayak.

This particular type of whitewater river activity can be done in various ranges from simple, gentle moving water to the extreme and demanding whitewater. Although whitewater kayaking might sound like a similar experience to whitewater rafting, it provides a different kind of rush.

The feeling of excitement is more intense in whitewater kayaking as compared to whitewater rafting since the person has to paddle through the rapids on his own. Whitewater kayaking also allows the person to stay in certain rapids for as long as he/she wants to. Aside from this, the person can also paddle upstream if he/she wants to (that is if the current is slow enough to maneuver).

Macahambus Adventure Park

The Macahambus Adventure Park is one of the most exciting places to visit in Cagayan de Oro. The place is perfect for thrill seekers, as well as for those who want to try something new around the city. Anyone interested in trying out new and fun things like rappelling is highly advised to visit the Macahambus Adventure Park.

This place is definitely far from boring as it allows visitors to experience the rush of adrenaline amidst a tranquil and serene natural environment. They can get that rush from choosing any of the three heart-pumping activities the adventure park offers. In addition to rappelling, they can also try the zipline and the skybridge. They can choose one or they can go all out and try all three.

The Skybridge is built some 492 feet above the ground. It is braced on sturdy White Lawaan trees, ensuring safety while the person walks his/her way towards the other end of the bridge. The park’s Zipline allows anyone to glide along a 392 ft long rope that is cleverly placed high above the water amidst a line of trees.

The park has been operating for around three years now. It was formally inaugurated on the 28th of December 2004. The inauguration was celebrated through a simple ceremony organized by the Department of Tourism. Since then, the Macahambus Adventure Park has been happily providing sheer thrill to many adventurous individuals.
