Lapu Lapu Statue Reviews & Ratings
Went here October 2018. Place was okay. When we went here, the river, lake, or whatever it's called was dried up, so that made it a bit of a let down. The monument and the historical piece (building) I'd recommend. It may not be much, but it does hold of what's left of the many events that might have taken place in here. Plus it's still here to stay as long as it's kept well and not that much disturbed. It's even gonna last longer than you though (that's a fact).
The Mactan Liberty Shrine is now open to the public again after the renovation. The shrine is a big space and can handle the big event.
Food expo was awesome until april 30, 2019 only
its a park..its clean and theres also souvner shop insde this park...not.easy to ride a jeep u need to wait for jeep.ots take 3 or 2 mins for jeep back to airport
I always go there for the cheapest souvenir. There will hold a fiesta every year. Good place to go but don't take the umbrella from the people who stand outside the entrance. They will ask the rental fee from you when you bring back the umbrella. 請記得不要跟門口的人拿雨傘遮陽，他們會跟你要租金。
