GOIN’ TO GUINTUBDAN | ISLAND HOPPING by NegrosSugar and BacolodSpice

Its climate is comparable to Baguio City, nestled as it is at least 2,000 feet above sea level. Simple terms: it’s way up there.

If you want a real back-packing adventure, you can travel by bus to La Carlota then ride a jeep to Guintubdan.

NegrosSugar was quite excited to see a piglet with long hairs. She wanted to take it home.

There are two ways to go the place. One is through Bago City. We decided to take the La Carlora route.

You can visit the Rafael Salas Park and Nature Center through Guintubdan.

It is a nature park that covers close to 300 hectares.

Let’s have a look-see at the things that we have seen there.
