The economy has taken a serious hit because of the coronavirus outbreak, and so did our social lives. Going outdoors became a luxury, and for a time only groceries and essential establishments could operate.

Adventures are reduced to daydreams as we would scroll past photos of lovely sceneries with heavy hearts and nostalgia for the life outdoors we once had. Still we remain hopeful for the resumption of the state of things pre-Covid, and we hold on to every sense of normalcy we can find.

The pandemic shall be over soon. For now, we can allow ourselves to plan ahead for the escapades and outings we will have once we are past this crisis. We had been in a home staycation for so long, wouldn’t it be nice to have it somewhere that isn’t our address?

We have compiled a list of local destinations where you can breathe in some lush vegetation and unwind after Covid-19. Feel free to update your future itineraries with trips to the wonderful fauna of Cebu island.
