Laswitan Lagoon

I am beginning to think this blog is turning into a travel blog. Or a pseudo one for that matter. I haven't been writing a lot of my crazy thoughts lately and a handful of getaways are in store just this first quarter of the year. So yeah, go figure.

Anyway, to start the year right, Jan and I decided to go all the way to Cortes, Surigao del Sur to witness and experience something amazing and spectacular.

The stunning and jaw-dropping Laswitan Lagoon.

A contrast to the photo above with clear blue skies, even during the typhoon's rage, we get to experience the same amazing masterpiece

And not even Typhoon Auring - that just made a landfall during our trip - stopped us. Braving the rain and the typhoon's strong winds is all worth it because I've never seen something like this my whole life. A waterfall in the ocean? This is absolutely one for the books.

They say December - January (rainy season) would be the best time to visit Laswitan Lagoon. And I think our timing was perfect because Auring was raging. The laswit (a visayan term for splash) were huge and nonstop. Although I wished the sun was out just so we can take Instagram-worthy photos. Anyhow, we definitely had a great time.

Had to go through this

Just to have this. LOL
I might even be back here one day. :)


UPDATE:
Two weeks after my mom saw our videos on Facebook, she went to see the beauty herself. Wag na kayong magtaka kung saan nagmana pagka LakwatSARAH ko.

She took all of these photos:

My mom, still rockin at 55 and still travels a lot, has always reminded me to travel while I still can.

    1. Hi John Ray! I really couldn't tell if February is still a good time to go. But most locals there would say December to January are the best months to visit the lagoon.

      Mt. Capistrano is at Malaybalay, Bukidnon. Thank you for pointing that out. I didn't realize I haven't actually put that on my blog post. :)

    1. That's the sad thing when a place becomes a hype. I hope the local officials are doing something to preserve it.

  3. Hi Sarah. It's so awesome! I hope to see it someday. I went at a wrong time and did not get to see the big splashes. For my blog, because I didn't get to see the real laswit, I used one of your photos of the lagoon and added a link to your website. I hope you don't mind. You can visit my blog at mustachioventures.blogspot.com. Please let me know if it's not okay and you want your photo taken down. Thank you.
