This is a review on the Banana Ride of Tambuli Beach Resort.
I must say the ride was really fun and enjoyable! It exceeded my expectations, thinking it might be oh so boring, I was very wrong. It was so nerve-racking especially when you feel that the inflatable pencil thingy is going side-ways and might trip at any moment.
Each one of us were wearing a life vest which is good. There were two people from the resort who ride the speed boat one was the one holding the wheel and the other one was sort of tour guide.
The handles where each of us on the banana ride hold was not slippery at all so no fear of losing grip.
The rope that connected the banana ride to the speed boat was big, sturdy and was securely attached.
The guys from the resort were so friendly and accomodating, they even make sure that we felt comfortable and lose the tension and nerve-racking feelings we had deep inside. They even stopped in order that my hubby can take pictures properly.
I can definitely say, the banana ride was worth every penny spent, every shout we made, and every second that lapsed.
Maybe extra minutes, make it 30mins for $32.

Tambuli Beach in Lapu-lapu
Recommended Baler Guide
The townsmen in Baler give so much importance to festivals and cultural performances. A dramatic fusion of acting and dance is staged in pantomime way through the Zarsuela or Moro-Moro to commemorate Aurora Day on February 19. If you’re traveling on that day, it’s interesting to see how the talented youngsters express themselves just to justify the historical story between the Muslims and Catholics. It speaks of reality, which is a good thing. If you’re in town for Holy Week, you don’t want to overlook the statue of Jesus Christ contained in a glass coffin at Santo Entierro.
