With the year 2010 about to close, a few friends and I charted a hastily planned beach getaway last December 26. From Jollibee at corner AS Fortuna and Hiway (Mandaue), we took the Maribago jeep armed with lechon manok and bottles of Coke. Portofino Beach Resort, Mactan was the ready answer for the group’s beach-thirst.
Despite the large crowd at the resort, we got to enjoy the waters including the funny intermissions by zipline riders.
Lesson learned: Never head to Portofino on a weekend or holiday if you are allergic to several beach-goers.
