Sadly, we weren’t able to do Kayaking because of my two little kids. Maybe next time! 🙂

We stayed for three days and two nights, and during those times, the kids forgot about the gadgets and truly embraced nature and wandered everywhere. I’m glad our Davao experience was stamped in their memory.

Water trampoline banana

Definitely worth trying, Water trampoline! I suggest doing this early morning around 7 or 8am because the water is calm and not too hot for the little kids.
