From La Conner Thousand Trails RV & Camping Resort, we drove to Coupeville Ferry Terminal. We were on the standby lane and didn't get on the first Ferry but we got on the next one. But because of that, we were able to explore Fort Casey State Park. Here's the link to that adventure A Ferry Ride to Port Townsend From Coupeville  When we arrived at Port Townsend it was late in the afternoon so we decided to spend a night in the area. We drove to Port Angeles and checked in at the Riviera Inn. Nothing special with the Inn but it was clean, cheap, and it suffice our need for the night. The next day, we checked out early from the Inn, got our breakfast, then head up Hurricane Ridge Olympic National Park. We stopped at the Overlook-Victoria B.C. From there I made a reservation for the Ferry back to Coupeville. The Ferry was full until the 5:15pm sailing time, so I went ahead and made that reservations.  We had a nice drive up to Hurricane Ridge Visitor Center.  Here's the lin

First Visit to Mambukal Hot Sulphur Springs Resort, Koronadal City before the Covid-19 lockdown

Before the Covid-19 lockdown started in Mindanao Region in Philippines, we had an opportunity to visit Mambukal Hot Sulphur Spring Resort in Koronadal City South Cotabato. We went there to celebrate Joel's birthday. This was our first visit there  and we only spent a night thinking we'd be back again in the next week or so. So glad we were able to visit but so sad we weren't able to go back again due to Corona Virus Pandemic. 

The road going to Mambukal Resort is part rough and narrow and the road get narrower the closer we get to the resort. The resort is not that far from the city but it feels like I'm in the jungle. Nice and secluded place with lots of greenery. 

Few minutes after we arrived there, the smell of hot sulphur bothered me. I was thinking, oh no! Can I stay here, can I take the smells all night long? Well, I didn't get used to the smell but I was able to tolerate it.

The Bahay Kubo we rented overnight cost 1600 pesos. With that price came 3 free guest then 100 per person additional. The lady who greeted us was nice, she was friendly and so accommodating.

The resort have several Sulphur Pool all over the place and also have 1 with natural spring water. All are 100 percent natural!

Way to the new black sulfur pool

Bahay Kubo that we rented. It has restroom, kitchen, bedroom, livingroom, and a cute dining table.

The bedroom is small and it has small bunk bed. The beds are comfy for 1 person but not for 2. There is an extra foam mattress under the bed as well that we used in the living room floors. The foam mattres in the upper bunk bed we used it on the bedroom floor, that way 2 person can sleep on it instead of just 1. It all worked out.

We soaked in the hot Sulphur pool after dinner 


Then we soaked again after breakfast


It was raining so we took advantage of the cool day soaking in hot sulfur spring pool. 

We also tried the sulfur Cave, it's a little warmer than the rest of the pools.
