To get here, you can rent a van and tell the driver to proceed to Mapawa Nature Park in Barangay Cugman if you’re already in Cagayan de Oro City. You an also get on a jeepney and jump off at the Mapawa Crossing and take habal-habal from there (P35,- one way) and arrange with driver to pick you up later.
It’s best to call days ahead so the facilitators can prepare and inform you if the place is okay for canyoneering, if the weather is good or if it’s already fully booked. (Source)
