Jumping off at Cantingas River Resort - The Country's Cleanest RiverTuesday, May 14, 2013Ryan Mach
Fairy 1: Look at him, he looks like a wuzz standing there trembling and scared like a little kid.
Fairy 2: But he's a kid.
We waited till the river was people empty before doing our own exhibition. We didn't want to get caught dead chickening out. Lol. By four in the afternoon, after a heavy downpour, the crowd began to disperse. It was our time to shine, or rather hurt ourselves. We rushed to the diving platform feeling all giddy and nervous.
I held on to the railings and bent forward to see the water below. No, I can't do it. So I went a notch lower by going to the first level. Heart racing, I jumped. It felt good I wanted to do it again, at the same level still. Mach level, my friends told me. The only level I could jump from.
The water is also safe for drinking. We could tell that it's really clean because it's odorless and you could see the river bed. It wouldn't be considered as the country's cleanest river for nothing. A number of experts has studied its quality and they have all agreed that its water type is alkaline.
Cantingas River is located in Cantingas, San Fernando, Romblon.
Entrance fee is 50 for tourists.
