Uragay Mountain Spring Resort, Carmen Cebu

One very hot afternoon, we decided to check out Uragay Mountain Spring Resort
located in Barangay Corte, Carmen, Cebu.  We heard of this Mountain Spring Resort from a local guy I spoke of the last time we went to Carmen who boastfully talked about this famous cold spring.  According to the staff that we talked in the resort, this spring has been the source of the bottled water of Nature's Spring Water until the company bought another spring source of their own.  The resort is privately owned, has two pools, for kids and for adults.  The very accommodating staff told us that they drain the pools every Wednesday, change the water and brush the floors and walls.  Must be true(hehehe) because the water was clean and clear.  The pools are fed by a flowing water from a spring or "tubod" so expect the water to be fresh and very cold. There is no restaurant in the resort, no corkage fees, cottages cost 300.  They have also accommodations for overnight stay, 1500 for two persons.

How to Get There
Carmen is located in the northern part of Cebu and approximately 1.5 hours travel from Cebu City. If you have your own vehicle, you can travel by the main road from Cebu City passing by Mandaue City-Consolacion-Liloan-Compostela-Danao City and finally Carmen. Uragay is just a few meters away from Carmen Public Market. Just watch out for the sign beside the road, pointing the direction of Uragay.  Reaching Uragay Mountain Spring Resort is easy and enjoyable.  From the main road, you will have to travel for 10-15 minutes to reach the resort.  On the way, you will pass by banana plantations, orchid garden of Mhuiller, Mhuiller farm, poultry farms and mountain views of Carmen.  The roads are asphalted, but be careful in the curves and in going down especially if it's raining.

Another option is to take public transportation to reach the resort.  You can take a bus from North Bus Terminal to Carmen, fare is 40 pesos.  Go down when the bus reaches Carmen Public Market. From the market, ride the "habal-habal" for 25-30 to take you directly to Uragay Mountain Resort. 


When you reach Carmen Public Market, a few meters from the market you will see a sign on the other side of the road pointing to the direction of Uragay Mountain Spring Resort.

It was raining and the cold was unbearable. So, we decided to call it a day.
