Tell your friends about it!

The tourism in Balamban has been booming lately, with the opening of new attractions like the botanical garden called Buwakan ni Alejandra and Florentino’s, which is dubbed as the “Little Tagaytay of Cebu.”

When you’re in the area, you might want to check out JVR Island in the Sky Resort as well.


Transcentral Hi-Way, Gaas, Balamban, Cebu City (A few steps from Adventure Cafe and right across Buwakan ni Alejandra.)

How To Get There

Public transportation: Go to the V-Hire terminal at Ayala Center Cebu and take a van with the Balamban via Transcentral Highway route. It would cost you Php 120 per person per way.

Private vehicles: The drive from JY Square via Transcentral Highway takes less than an hour. Just search for JVR Island in the Sky Resort or Adventure Cafe on your phone’s navigation app. There’s very little parking space inside the premises of the park, but you can park (properly) on the roadside.


Entrance  Php 50 (adult), Php 25 (children)
Open Cottage – Php 350

They also have a swimming pool and rooms for rent. For more information, please visit JVR Island in the Sky Resort on Facebook.
