We are always excited and interested in visiting places that offer unique, fun, and memorable experiences. Even before the pandemic blew up, Filipinos have always incorporated travelling as our way of living life to the fullest. Simply putting it, we travel not to escape life but for life not to escape us.
D’Fortees Nature Park in Montevista, Davao de Oro offers an escape from the urban hustles and lets you experience a break that only nature can give. Designed not just for barkadas, D’Fortees Nature Park is also for a memorable bonding with your family.
What better way to document this experience than to take nice photos. This resort has been really meticulous in making sure that their place is all Instagram-worthy. Irresistibly beautiful, they have spots within the area that will make you stand-out in your pictures. Strike a pose in their Bali-inspired view, Kawa Bath, Mirador de Cuarenta, and in their flower garden.
How about biking for free? Aside from the fact that it can be good way to stretch those muscles, it’s also a perfect way for you to circle around the area and be amazed at how this place can give you peace of mind that comes with the beauty of nature.
They also have horseback riding so you can wander around the area complete with cowboy/cowgirl boots and hats. However, following health protocols, horseback riding operations are halted but would definitely resume once the situation gets better.
Beat the heat of the sun by diving into their swimming pools. Truly, a good dive into its cold waters refreshes not just our body but also our mind, prepping us for another week of juggling work and life.
