Astonishing Baluarte - A Heritage Park in Aloguinsan, Cebu

After our Hidden Beach Resort escapade and after Uncovering Bojo River in Aloguinsan. The group decided to visit the Baluarte - a heritage park in Aloguinsan, Cebu and it is located behind the Aloguinsan Municipal Hall.

A 4th class Municipality in the province of Cebu. Aloguinsan was formerly a barrio of Pinamungajan. It was created a town by the Royal Decree of the King of Spain in 1886.

Due to limited time we were not really able to appreciate much the historical significance of the Baluarte unless more time is granted to enjoy the place. But we had so much fun with the great views of the ocean, the cool breeze and the panoramic view of the town of Aloguinsan. The good thing here, you can see the ruins of the Baluarte or watchtower that was made during the Spanish era.

The view is absolutely astonishing, by the way. and I bet it would be nice looking at the sunset from there.

The most unforgettable experience with my UBers (United Backpackers) family. Come and discover Baluarte. Enjoy the hidden treasure of Aloguinsan, Cebu.

Uncover Bojo River in Aloguinsan Cebu

After getting tired and stressed from work, I decided to go on for a trip to help me unwind and for me to uncover and explore Bojor River. I was captivated the beauty of Bojo River and one can not be considered to have visited Aloquinsan if you completely missed Bojor River in your trip. It is not just the foreign tourists who want to know which are the best places to visit in Cebu but also locals like me. Bojo River is a great place to visit, hanging out with your friends and love ones. The place is truly a perfect getaway to have some fun while learning to appreciate the beauty of nature at the same time. 

The trip was awesome and I was able to spend time with my friends (United Backpackers - Cebu Edition). I did not actually plan it to visit the place. Unfortunately, our trip was not really that smooth sailing because it was low tide at that time. Indeed, we had so much fun. 

The experience in Bojo River gave me an understanding on how a river should looked like a river that we should take good care of. The place is known to the locals and you do not need to worry about the direction, you can ask some of the locals there. 

The Municipality of Aloguinsan takes pride in communities that take an active part in the protection and conservation of its natural resources. The Municipality of Aloguinsan is also called by many the "Ecotourism Capital of Cebu". 

How to get there 

Aloguinsan can be reached by Private Utility or Public Utility Vehicles. Since, I am a less fortunate individual on this planet earth. Hehehehe. I rode a bus bound for Toledo City at Cebu South Bus Terminal Station. The fare is less than Php100.00, sorry folks I couldn't remember the exact fare for this trip. The travel time is approximately 1.5 hours. Tell the conductor or the bus driver to drop you at the Municipality of Aloguinsan. Take a tricycle or habal-habal and tell the driver that you are visiting Bojo River. If your in a group you can easily hire a van from Citilink directly to the place. 

Happy Sailing and Explore Bojo River!
