Engaging natures of Uma sa Taba, Carmen Davao del Norte

There are a bunch of places here in the Philippines that will give you a perfect bonding with your families and friends but most of us always think about those places which are famous, beautiful and well-known attractions.

With exception to Davao Del Norte province which knew as major banana producers all over the country became the main sources of living by most families in here. This gives a major contribution in agriculture sector however tourism industry also growing. In the small town of Carmen, Davao del Norte has a hidden attraction called Uma sa Taba that can enjoy the beauty of nature perfect for family gatherings and friends activities.

At the main entrance, we noticed this spacious and spot-crisp in its beautiful landscape. The small bridge seems encouraging and welcoming us to come in to engage in its natural beauty. Yes, Entrance is “FREE” of charge which is rarely happening in every spot I’ve been visited; this means that we can enjoy your days without spending too much.

This place allows every visitor to bond with family and friends only for a day tour. Just rent a cottage and you will enjoy the amenities. There various cottages for the rent depending on their sizes.  Kubo Hunts with Kitchen good for more than 10 people only cost P1, 000 per day; Driftwood Hut cost P500 per day and Umbrella Kubo Hunts cost P200 per day but they don't have room accommodations yet, so, they will be close by 6:00 in the evening.

As reminders, these places also have rules to be followed. First, our kids must always keep visible. We should also help to preserve our environment engaging with Mother Nature. This place also not allows smoking and brings any alcoholic beverages inside though they are not very strict in checking of this; our responsibility to follow in maintaining a good environment.  Help and observed cleanliness around the rented cottage and put your trash at the proper garbage bin. Keep an eye on your valuables because management is no responsibility for that loss. No picking of flowers and return fishing rods after used.
