    After a long, rough walk, much of which is over rough, rocky terrain, it a must see that should be at the top of your list. Wear shoes good for hiking and that can get wet. Sneakers are okay. Also wea...  more »

    Great piece of untouched nature! What I do regret is that room while the official hiking trail is not maintained. The first piece with the stairs down, but later any more. So you have to really climb and occasionally by the river. That's fine, but that not everyone can be.

    Casaroro falls is the first stop of our Dumaguete trip and it did leave an impact. The first leg of going there is the long descent using steep stairs but you also have to do a laborious trek on rocky...  more »

    Great volume of water falling from the falls will make feel little as you stand in awe. A good 300+ steps going the trail will keep you excited as you go along, there is a minimal fee of Php10 when you visit the place and may opt to ask your habalhabal driver to be your guide or you can go on your own just remember to follow the boulders to your right as you hit ground level after the stairs.

    Definitely worth it, the trail was a bit dangerous with all those big boulder of rocks but once you've reach the falls, all you can say is, "It's so gorgeous". Just be more careful as the rocks were too slippery. Take care and happy travelling.

    Amazing Falls.. If you can make it. A very dangerous and difficult trek to get to the falls...

    1-hour motor ride from Dumaguete, 375 steps down, and roughly 2km trek's totally worth after seeing this 100-foot falls of the rugged Valencia mountains, the hughest falls i've seen yet.

    Worth the effort! Casaroro Falls is located in Valencia roughly 10 km from Dumaguete. It’s considered to be the most photographed waterfall in the entire Negros province. To get there, take a jeepney from Dumaguete to Valencia Plaza, it takes 20-30 minutes depending on the traffic. The fare is 12 PHP per person. At Valencia Plaza take a Habal Habal up to Casaroro falls. Ask the driver to wait for you. The fare should be around 200 PHP per person and back and forth. Always try to negotiate. Travel time is around 20 minutes. From the drop off point you need to hike. There will be steep stairs going down at first, it’s said to be 350 steps. I haven’t counted them but it might be true. Additional hike is required after the stairs. Be prepared for wet feet and to stumble around among slippery rocks. Depending on your fitness level the hiking time to the falls would be from 15 minutes and plus. The waterfall is mighty, beautiful and really worth the effort.

Where to stay in Dumaguete City

The welcoming university town of Dumaguete has a number of accommodations to suit its many visitors, primarily located close to the sea. In the built-up waterfront area, luxury hotels form a major part of the modern commercial and entertainment developments, with coastal views and good access to the most upmarket eateries and watering holes. Look inland for plenty of guesthouses and rental accommodations in the student-heavy residential areas; here, these budget-friendly lodgings will still put you pretty close to the waterfront attractions.
