Travel guides are meant to be read but should not be taken wholeheartedly. That is the beauty of traveling. There is always a big room left empty and cannot be filled with advanced readings of travel guides, cannot be filled with dos and don'ts, especially guides that are not written by the locals themselves.
There is nothing more learned, experienced, and knowledgeable about a place than the locals themselves. An island like Cebu has gone through a lot. If you have a local as a guide, you can hear stories from way, way back. Like how their great grandparents hid on the mountain caves during the Spanish colonization or how their ancestors survived World War II. Or hear stories of mythical creatures roaming in the mountains or lurking under the dark blue sea or murky river.
Have a glimpse of this uniquely Cebu through interacting with locals themselves. Locals are the best travel guides that do not have “best seller” attached to their names.
