I happen to follow some instagram adventurers and decided to try to re-trace their steps to visit a nearby waterfalls in San Fernando, Cebu called Busay Falls. A quick fun fact, Busay means waterfalls in Cebuano/Bisaya. So it is kind of redundant to call it Busay+Falls. The waterfalls is accessible either through Barangay Balud (wave in bisaya) or through Barangay Talisay to Barangay Basak where the falls is in San Fernando.
This is also my first time in going on an solo-adventure! The search for this waterfalls is quite tricky and I ended up getting lost 3 times (twice in searching for it, and once when getting out of the area). I am not familiar with the Brgy. Talisay route and the habal2 driver that was driving me around kept suggesting and bringing me to mountain resorts - so that made it clear to me that even locals are not familiar with the place. I finally found the right municipal road where I took another motor-taxi going to the location.

As always, be safe and careful and also leave no trace. It’s part of a responsible adventure too.
