We went to Butuan to celebrate my tita's birthday. We decided to visit Enchanted River since we were already near Surigao. The road's going there is quite bumpy but it was all worth it because the river is really really nice. We decided to go on island hopping first, which is also worth it because we visited clam sanctuary where... More

The water is cool and refreshing greenish blue and it's really enchanting to watch the fish feeding time, wherein swimmers are not allowed in the water. Just have a dip and enjoy some moments in the shallower part of the river.. Oh the entrance fee is only Php50, a very minimal amount for the upkeep of the place. You can... More

Head there early in the morning to avoid crowds, get a snorkel and have a dip in the crystal water. We did the island hopping and enjoyed it a lot!

Let me start with the fact that this attraction in much bigger than most people know. Yeah sure there's a nice pool to jump to and swim in, but theres more. This river is located in the edge of a beautiful lagoon! We took a kayak for 150 pesos per hour , and got a private guide with a lift... More

ABOUT THE PLACE: When we arrived at the place, oh God, there were so many cars at the parking area. Upon entering the resort, there is no more vacant seat. My parents were forced to stand along with our food. This place is not suitable for old person. Stairs stairs stairs. ABOUT THE SERVICE: The management were unfriendly. They speak... More

I have visited this place many times, and I am planning to go there again. If there, you should also try island hopping after enjoying the crystal clear water. I am always so fascinated and surely bewitched staying there.

Enchanted River was one of the many places included in my bucketlist. I was delighted that I wasn't downhearted upon seeing the place. The water was crystal clear and the funny part is that it's salty, due to the fact that the sea is very near. We also tried island hopping and the nearby islands are also enchanting. Although it's...
