MACTAN SHRINE PARK
We arrived at 5:30am at the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, a one-hour-and-ten-minute plane ride from Manila. Took our time first at the airport because it was too early. By 6:00am we hailed a white taxi to Punta Engaño to visit Magellan Shrine and Lapu Lapu Shrine. It was a 30-minute taxi ride and costs us P130 ($3.16).
Good thing about the park was it was so clean and it has NO ENTRANCE FEE. Place was safe and there were cebuanos taking their morning jogs.
LAPU LAPU SHRINE
What I liked about the place was it brings back memories from gradeschool seeing Lapu-Lapu’s Shrine and reading him and Magellan through history books.
A time well spent in Mactan Island.
I posted a blog about SUTUKIL RESTAURANT a 5-minute walking distance from the park.
