Paraiso Verde Resort and Waterpark – Just Go with the Flow!

Just like its neighboring towns, it is quite obvious that Koronadal City is also exerting extra effort to make its tourism industry boom. Just thus year, a world-class resort and waterpark was introduced to the public.

Paraiso-Verde2

The Paraiso Verde Resort and Waterpark was only launched in July this year. I am glad that this new tourist attraction is part of the S3X Tour line-up this year. I’ve been reading some positive reviews from Facebook friends and travel blogs. Even if we were rushing for our trip back to Davao City, we decided to spend the sleepy Sunday afternoon in this new water haven. I need to dive into the pool in order for my senses to wake up hehe.

Woot! Paraiso Verde Resort and Waterpark did not disappoint! Days prior to our visit, Ate Ria told me that the owners of this water-themed park took time and effort to visit other destinations not only in the Philippines, but around Asia. This is the fruit of their labor and the once imagined business venture is now a reality!

The gang didn’t waste any time. We all changed our clothes to swimming attires and went straight to waterlandia!

The ADVENTURA RIVER RAPIDS is a milder version of water tubing. When we arrived and saw this pool from afar, i can’t help but reminisce the movie ‘Honey, I Shrunk the Kids’ especially upon seeing some individuals on top of the neon-colored giant salbabidas roving around. If I were a giant, i might think this is my favorite morning cereal meal hehe just kidding =P

Our next stop is the FREESTYLE POOL, where competing swimmers will surely stay. I admit that I can’t really swim. I joined Drew, Mark and Tiara and watch them do the laps. Is it too late for me to take up swimming lessons? My dad’s technique didn’t work for me when I was still a little kid. Blame him, blame him!

That is what you call UNITY =))

Then here goes everybody’s favorite… the MOBY WAVE POOL! Kuya Avel described it as ‘the big pool with giant waves’. All we had to do was wait for the alarm. When we heard this for the first time, almost everyone went there and started to shout like little kids again! I had a problem doing the ‘tubing’ position while the waves were on. I almost backed out, but i’m already in the area anyway. Might as well carry my lazy ass and enjoy the waves! Just go with the flow!

For the real kids, they will surely love the WIGGLES KIDDIE POOL. It could have been my favorite place if only I am allowed to play there. Why not measure age through a person’s heart? LOL.

Now put your hands up!
Now put your hands up!

Waterparks truly reminds one of its childhood. I remember how our relatives would bring us to waterparks from time to time when I was a kid. It’s nice to be a kid again – no hesitations, just having fun. Woooohoooooo!

We stayed there for more than two hours and the management prepared an early dinner treat for us. Unfortunately, some of us needed to rush for the long road trip back to Davao City.

    Aww you look so happy! I am not in the habit of visiting waterparks because my stomach is fat from all the food I’ve been eating over the last few months! Need to work out before getting into swimsuit! But your smile is contagious!

  8. I wish I knew about this park when I was in the Philippines. I was often pretty hot and could have used a refreshing dip not to mention the fun.

    Love water parks! This one looks like a lot of fun too 🙂

    On an editorial note, I do find the Google ad appearing before the post to be a little distracting. Maybe it would look better at the base?

    This is the worst place Ive stayed yet in philiphines. It doesnt even look like that anymore. Arriving there it felt like a ghost town and family escorting us there they wanted to charge entrance fee for. They do not make it clear if the rooms are on the resort or hotel and you do not want to end up in the resort. The facilities looks good on pictures but it seems to not have been maintained for years. Pools are empty and with stale water so its more like mosquito heaven and outright dangerous for kids. The pools that does have water are dirty and it doesnt look like water is changed very often and waves and slides are not active. There is nothing near for drinks or other service. Security wise its totaly empty at nite so we were adviced by locals to change. The rooms did not have the facilities like bath as advertised and those that did were dirty. The light was broken and small beds and turning on a fan caused months of dust and dirt to fall down on us. Wifi was useless slow. Trying to get discount or waive of cancellation fee was not possible and we were told the employe who took us in would be deducted this in salary if we wouldent pay this which we ofcourse would not let happen. Stay clear of this place.
