This has to be the most adventurous day of the trip. We spent the entire day being driven around Canlaon on motorcycles and exploring the area. The beauty of the mountainous terrain was breathtaking and it was very interesting to see how different this area of the island was from the coastal town of La Libertad.

During the ride we stopped at the Century Tree which is a hundred year old ficus tree that towers above all its visitors. It is a beautiful tree that has been completely left alone to thrive in the area.

We also stopped at Canlaon Farms, an organic farm that is owned and operated by members of Kevin’s family. There we saw how the rice is harvested, dried, and ultimately packaged for distribution. We also got to visit with a few of the farm animals while we were there like ostriches and cows.

The final stop was to hike to a beautiful and secluded waterfall where we relaxed and had lunch. The boys all jumped in the water for a swim, but the water was way too cold for me to partake.

We ended the day back at a family home for dinner!
