Why Danao Adventure Park is special ?
Danao Adventure Park is nestled in the mountainous range of Bohol. E.A.T. Danao is the town’s newest brainchild. “E.A.T.” does not only pertain to the partaking of the town’s organically grown and fresh food which is in abundance but also a whole new experience far superior to the common offer of Chocolate Hills’ tour, tarsier and dolphin/whale watching.
Danao offers unique and exhilarating activities in different categories set amidst verdant valleys framed by the majestic expanse of mountain ranges. To trim down the choices for the individual tourist, specific activities were grouped into three: Extreme, Economic, and Educational. So “E” stands for any of the three; “A” for Adventure; then “T” for Tour.

Tips for you
I've been here around 4 times for the Zipline. But the last time I was here was in December 2010 when I took the plunge. It was really quite an experience. At that time it cost P800 and like the tagline said, you pay for the experience of being dropped into a gorge with only a line to hold you to solid ground and a thin helmet to protect (?) your head. They ask you first if you want to fall head or feet first, and you are strapped accordingly. But guess what? Once you overcome the fear of the initial drop, you will say the price wasn't worth it - because you want to do at least another jump! If I didn't consider myself an adrenaline junkie, this experience really made me change my mind. This was also where I had my first zipline experience. Truly exhilarating, so the next time I went, I made sure to have a camera strapped to my hand to document the trip across the canyon. My brother went spelunking with his friends and liked the experience! The park has other adventure activities. Be sure to allot two days - one for the long trip back and forth Tagbilaran (or wherever you're staying) and one day for the activities.
