When living in the city proves to be too stressful, one can get away from it all by going on a road trip to a farm or rest house. There are a number of private farms and rest houses in Cebu where one can relax and reconnect with nature.
If you want to go on a digital detox, you can head to Lava Mountain River Farm in, Brgy. Bonbon, Cebu City. This mango farm and rest house in the Busay area is a four-hectare., five-bedroom eco-resort nestled in the mountains. The place does not have WiFi or mobile signal, letting guests stop to appreciate the beauty of nature.
One of the places to do this is at the pool which overlooks the mountains and which has filtered and treated water from the nearby Mananga River. More adventurous types can try trekking at the said river, choosing from easy, intermediate, or challenging routes.
