A Week of Summer in Dakak Park And Beach Resort

by - 1:38 PM

Second half of April, some cousins, relatives and members of Tita's Cathecism organization chose to spend a week of Summer in the scary place of the Philippines, the Mindanao. But guess what? It was not scary at all - it was amazing! We picked the beautiful paradise of Dakak Park and Beach Resort in Dapitan, Zamboanga Del Norte. My manager at work once mentioned how nice the Resort was and wondered how the Resort look today? And of course, who wouldn't be interested to experience Dakak after that commercial made by AlDub (famous Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza loveteam)?

So, why the place called Dakak? While on our way to the Resort, we had a chance to visit Rizal Shrine. During the quick tour, the guide mentioned Dakak stands for "Dagkong Kakahoyan" or Big Trees. In addition to this trivia, Dapitan City is called Historic City of the South. Why not? This City got a lot and is indeed part of the History. Not to mention, this is where our National Hero, Dr. Jose Rizal was exiled and met her lovelife, Josephine Bracken. Also, in Dapitan lives the smallest person in the whole world. We can see Holy Rosary Cathedral of Dipolog, the City’s century-old cathedral. And of course, most Spanish houses which are reserved until this era.
