After visiting Danao Adventure Park, we had our lunch at the Danao Adventure Park restaurant then we proceeded to Dauis Church on the Island of Panglao. Considered as one of the most beautiful churches of Bohol, the church is also known for the Saint Mary’s Well – the only well in the island that provides fresh drinking water and is known for its water’s healing power.

If you want to buy some souvenirs, Dauis Church Souvenir Shop and Cafe sells handicrafts and accessories that are mostly made in Inabanga in Bohol. The building used to be a convent but is now transformed into a souvenir shop and events place managed by Cafe Lawis.
After our short stop, we headed to Bohol Beach Club to leave our things and to freshen up. Most of us are already tired, but everyone was excited to see Amarela Resort – our last stop for the day. Upon arrival at the resort, the owners toured us around the resort while we are waiting for some of the local travel agents and stake holders.
