Mindanao's Biggest Wave: Paraiso Verde Resort and Waterpark

align boxBlog Owner and Post Author: Lainy

You may ask, why it’s fun in the Philippines? One of the many cool reasons could be the newest resort in Mindanao which is located in South Cotabato. It boasts of its world-class facilities: Moby Wave Pool, Adventure Rapids, Freestyle Swimming Pool and the Wiggles Kiddie Pool.

Please allow me to let the photos speak for itself:

When we went there in December for our Provincial Yearend party, I was amazed at how the place was developed. Everything was so modern! It’s indeed one of its kind in Southern Philippines!

I got the chance to take some captures from my very own shutter:

We sure had a blast the entire time of the happy party there!

I have actually planned for a family outing there in December. But my mother doesn’t want her young, beautiful skin to be exposed under the heat of the excruciating sun (Ang arte! Β  :roll: ); so I had to find another place with overnight accommodation, hence Lemlunay Dive Spot. Too bad Paraiso Verde’s open only until midnight.

However, I highly recommend this place to everyone who wants another round of awesome adventure. Paraiso Verde has succeeded in giving fun a different meaning and bringing Mindanao to greater heights.

  1. Well, you’re right Lainz. The place looks cool. Mahilig din kami magpunta sa resort ng family ko and that place looks really promising. Tsaka mukhang affordable naman yung prices.

    Natawa naman ako sa comment mo sa Mom mo. Hahaha!

    1. @KRIZZA,

      Yes indeed, Krizz. Sana makapagpublish ka pa ng more escapades nyo with your kids.

      Hahaha! Pagkagaling kasi namin nagovernight sa Lemlunay, sabi ko next natin sa Paraiso Verde. She has the same reaction. Ayaw nya daw yong naiinitan. Night swimming ang gusto!

  2. Haha! Nakakatuwa si mudrabellez mo πŸ˜€ Consciousness monster sa beauty nya πŸ˜‰ Kasi nga naman dapat sana talaga may overnight accommodations sa ganyan kabonggang resort. Kakabilib talaga sa Pinas kasi lumelevel up na talaga sa mga destinations πŸ˜‰

  3. Nag-e-error sa pag post ng comment, so not sure kung pumasok yung una kong comment, pero uulitin ko na lang πŸ˜€ Haha!

  5. You say it’s more fun in the Philippines, and I say Wow philippines!!! if only there’s a money to suport the different project in thephillipines without corruption im sure there’s more nice resort nga ma discover ug ma create

  6. love all your photos sis Lainy! looking at your photos is making me itch to go home! huhuhu.. murag dugay pa dyud ko makauli ani. basig 48years pa! intawon. lol

  7. Lainy,

    There is so much that can be said about what should be the right formula for the Philippines to revitalize the Tourism Industry. Everyone’s input would be a valid contribution as personal taste and choice would differ.

    But one thing for sure about those who are directly serving and profiting from the Philippine Tourism Industry – they ape what is already “old” attractions in the West. Such as those depicted in the photographs above.

    Why, even some Asians are satiated with resorts that offer another miniaturized concrete jungle and a two seconds joy ride down a slide or from the crest of artificial waves.

    The idyllic and carefree “do as it comforts you” that is found in lush green expanse and sandy shores, with umbrella shade from nature’s forest and the scent of the tropical heat bearing upon the greenery is brutally hacked for cabanas.

    Then what is left of the massacre are a few palm trees artificially potted around to reverse as it were, a concrete jungle transformed into nature’s playground.

    Add some psychedelic paint scheme to the concrete ramparts and who cares who is swimming or throwing caution to the winds, there is no life savers post anywhere in the photographs.

    In the name of Tourism and “there is more fun in the Philippines”, what has happened to the natural beauty and mystique that was once the pride of the Philippines?

    1. @Windy,

      What more can I say? You’ve already said it all. Coming from a non-Filipino like you, I feel ashamed to be part of the government system that stinks.

      I love how you put it: “When what is left of the massacre are a few plant trees… ” Which reminded me of the recent deluge that wrought havoc to more than a thousand helpless Filipinos. Illegal logging was identified to be the culprit. However, government policies proved that they themselves allowed these to happen.

      For the nth time, I have said time and again that I have lost hope for my country. However, I can never call any other country that’s mine but only my beloved Philippines. I should do my own little share that will help improve the Filipinos lot e.g. be a more responsible civil servant. The government elected officials must take action NOW and take responsibility to a lot of pressing issues and concerns besetting my country.

  8. Every time I saw a water park I always remember my son’s curiosity with water when we went to the aqua park here in our place. While at the same time I enjoyed the crazy slides with so many choices to choose from.

    And if you have time take time to read the article I have in the link just for awareness when it comes to swimming. The image there is the aqua park I am talking about.

  9. I am awe of how beautiful this place is, great family bonding to spend here. Is this expensive Sis Lainy? How much is the entrance? Visiting from Wednesday Whites, hope that you can return the favor too.

  12. Hi sweetie, it sure looks like a fun place, esp for kids! But I don’t blame your mom for not wanting to expose her young beautiful skin to the hot scorching sun he he! Happy hols! :)

  13. Beautiful place for adventure with the family. This is perfect place to unwind and enjoy great time with your loved-ones. How I wish we have this in our hometown. Thank you for sharing it with us Sis Lainy. Visiting from Tuesday Travels, hope that you can return the visit too.
