Cagayan de Oro und Freizeit
Es gibt Naturparks, Kinos, Shoppingmalls die am Wochenende von der ganzen 
besucht werden. Zwei Golfplätze, einen am Flughafen und einen in Patag sowie eine 
Driving ranch in Patag drei Schießclubs, einige Bowling Bahnen, eine Kunsteisbahn in 
der SM Mall, Bars und Restaurants.
Der Golfclub in Patag ist ein Überbleibsel der US Ära und gehört heute der Philippin 
Army. Seine zentrale Lage ist seine Stärke. Was für mich als "Neugolfer der nie 
golfspielen wollte" sehr angenehm aufgefallen ist, das es so gut wie keine 
Schickimickiatmosphäre gibt. Das gild im gleichen Maße für die Driving ranch in 
Der Golfplatz ist sicherlich nicht der Beste, aber die Gegebenheiten rund um machen 
einiges wieder wett.

Kingston Lodge at Xavier Sports & Country Club 
(6 outdoor courts and 1 indoor court). Also available at Xavier is swimming,
fishing and ten pin bowling. It also has a good restaurant and bar. 

A great place for diving is the island of Camiguin, which is only a 45 minute ferry ride 
The island is only 64 kilometers in circumference but has plenty
of dive sites. We recommend using Johnny’s Dive Centers that are situated 
throughout the island. 

They offer all facilities for both beginners and experienced 
divers. For accommodation on the island go to our partner’s 
website casa-mae.com just click on the link on our home page.
The island also has many other attractions including hot and 
cold springs, waterfalls and volcanoes.  Your family will not 
be bored while you are exploring the wrecks 
and coral reefs around the island.  

White Water Rafting

The trip will include being picked up from Kingston Lodge in a jeepney, an 
adventure in itself,
 to take you to the launch site where you will experience the thrill of a lifetime 
by shooting the rapids.
 Helmets and life jackets are provided. Between the rapids you can leave the 

raft and float serenely 
down river observing the natural flora and fauna. At the end of the ride you will
 be given lunch before 
returning to the Lodge.  

Caves There are over 80 known caves many of which are unexplored. 
Macahambus cave which is only 15 minutes from
Kingston Lodge 
is home to the split nose bat and leads to a veranda overlooking the Cagayan river. 200 metres away is the Macahambus Gorge where there is a flight of over 100 steps leading down to a place where an underground river comes out from one cave and into another.  

The Huluga cave about 5 miles south of the City is where skeletal remains of a woman and child were found dating back 1,600 years B.C.

Beaches  Throughout the Philippines there are hundreds of beautiful beaches with Borocay being named the best beach in the world. They offer unlimited aqua adventures 
such as diving, dolphin and whale watching, windsurfing etc. Or find a quiet hideaway and relax in the shade of a palm tree with an ice cold drink.  

here are good swimming beaches within 30 minutes drive from the lodge and 
really fine beaches 
1-1 ½  hours away.


There are several shopping malls in the city plus many individual shops where you

can also buy hand made leather shoes and sandals at bargain prices. There are 
also 2 main 
markets where everything is available from fresh fruit and vegetables
to locally caught fish,


There are literally hundreds of places to eat, everything from the small stalls on the 
street to fancy 
restaurants. All kinds of food are available from Philippine dishes 
to western style food, and prices can be as low as 50Php ($1) for something like 
chicken and rice. There are also restaurants serving all you-can-eat 
buffets from 99Php ($2) Also all the usual fast foods are available such as 
McDonald’s, KFC 
and Pizza Hut. We would advise when eating out to only drink bottled 
mineral water.

Night Life

There are many clubs and bars and discos offering live music or karaoke. 
Filipinos are very musical 
and they love to sing. Karaoke machines are found all over 
the city in all kinds of establishments, from bars to the car wash. Live bands 
can be heard in several 
clubs and bars. One of the favorite places to go is 
the Night Café in Divisoria.  On Friday and Saturday nights the streets are 
closed and many stalls 
are set up selling all kinds of food and drink, plus a wide range 
of other wares from shoes to jewelry. Live bands play most of the evening.
 Night Café is open 
until 2 am. It’s a great place to just sit with a cold drink and observe 
the locals who throng there to meet and have fun. Another good venue is 
The Limketkai Center 
where there are numerous shops, restaurants, discos and coffee 
bars. You can enjoy a meal in one of the restaurants then sit outside with 
a coffee and listen to 
one of the live bands.
