This laid-back capital city of Negros Oriental is always a pleasure to explore. Also called a University Town because it is home to Silliman University, where many students in the Visayas and Mindanao choose to have their college degree, Dumaguete is a charm. It has good and affordable food finds that also make for unique pasalubongs like sylvannas and sans rival cakes. The urbanites who itch to shop need not fret, because Dumaguete also has malls they can hang out and shop in. Touring Dumagete however is best done if you go out-of-town, to places like Bais or Apo Island. Why, you can even cross the sea (short 20 minute ride) and get to Oslob in southern Cebu to see the whale sharks (butandings) or relax in Sumilon. Email Green Earth Tours and Travel at

Dumaguete Day Tour Option #3: DUMAGUETE TWIN LAKES TOUR + MABINAY CAVESThis full-day Dumaguete tour is actually more of out-of-town and ideal for the rugged, outdoorsy type of tourists. This is not the adrenalin-pumping kind of tour however. The Mabinay Caves is not for spelunking but it gives a very good view of caves where stalactites and stalagmites are very much alive. The cave is well preserved, and a local guide will show you around the place to point out the various formations inside the cave. On the other hand, the Twin Lakes Tour takes you to Sibulan in Negros. The prominent feature of the Twin Lakes Natural Park is the twin crater lakes of Balinsasayao and Danao. Balinsasayao is larger than Danao and both are generally steep, plunging up to 90 meters in depth. A narrow ridge separates the Twin Lakes. In the background, one can see Mt. Guintabon in the east and Mt. Guinsayawan in the west. With the lakes, mountains, over 184 species of terrestrial vertebrates and 180 species of forest trees, one can say you can get a natural high doing the Dumaguete Twin Lakes Tour without breaking the law. Dumaguete Twin Lakes Tour + Mabinay Caves Highlights: Lake Danao and Lake Balinsasayao in Sibulan and Mabinay Caves in Mabinay, aka Cave Town for its numerous caves Tour inclusions: AC transportation, services of licensed tour guide, local guide during caving, lunch, bottled mineral water, entrance fees
Dumaguete Day Tour Package Option #4: DAUIN SNORKEL FUN + BALANAN LAKE WITH LUNCHSome tourists prefer to stay in Dauin’s beach resorts than in Dumaguete City. That said, one can have the best of both worlds by staying in a Dumaguete accommodation and then taking the Dauin Snorkel Fun + Balanan Lake Tour! Dauin is a municipality in Negros Oriental near Bacong and Zamboanguita. It is home to many scuba and snorkelling sites; and even the famous Apo Island falls under the jurisdiction of Dauin. On the other hand, Balanan offers hikers a circumferental trail, beautiful waterfalls and of course the Balanan Lake itself. While swimming in the lake is strictly prohibited, one can ride the banca, the pedal boat, kayak, triak or relax at the park’s floating cottage.
