Our second day started a little bit late than we intended to. The rafting company tld us that they'll be picking us up by 7am but ended up picking us up around 8:30. This is somehow beneficial for us since we are still waiting for our friend to arrive at the inn.
Today's itinerary only includes water rafting. We were told that it will be a 3-hour ride down the river so we need to prepare our gears such as wearing rash guard, helmets and sun block to protect us from heat and hopefully rocks/injuries.

I was using Banana boat sunblock and it was effective. Borrowing rash guard from an officemate seems to be a good idea if you're gonna use it once (I bet!).
The travel from the inn to the starting point took us around 1 and a half hour and we were able to catch a quick nap before the energy draining activity.
Upon arriving the start up, you'll notice lots of color coded boats which corresponds to each rafting company. Shout out to First rafting Adventure who accommodated us despite the big group they already are handling.
Most of the time, the guides from Rafting Adventure would ask you to paddle in the rapids, BEWARE! This is their strategy to get you out of the boat. HAHAHAHAHAHA. Be sure to paddle and lock yourself within the boat at the same time.
Snce we've done cliff jumping and rapelling, rafting seems to be pretty lame to us. This does not mean that you'll laugh your ass off all the time you were in the rapids.
The package we got was 1000php per person which includes transportation, guides, rafting praphernalias, lunch and a lot of adrenaline and laughter for the team.
One fact that i learned is that the CDO river is one dividing Bukidnon and CDO. Yes! On the right side is Bukidnon and on the left is CDO. During the smooth area, one can swim and stare at the sky or just listen to your surrounding.
This adventure is one of it's kind.
The restaurant was airconditioned with lots of people eating. And there we were, walking inside dripping and chilling. When we looked outside the driver and the jeepney was nowhere to be found. no goodbyes no anything. Good thing that our inn was just 3 blocks away. We quickly finished our meal (rice toppings) and went home to change clothes and have a decent lunch before going to our conference.
