Talima-lima eh-eh, Talima-lima eh eh. Welcome to Talima!
If you are in for adventure and the beach, then you should visit this place. Talima Adventure and Water Park is a tourist destination located at Brgy. Talima, Olango Island. It offers a variety of land and water activities that the whole family, barkadas and workmates could enjoy. There are water slides, water trampolines, water rollers, zipline, Zorb balls, ATV’s and mountain biking, kayaking and snorkeling activities to choose from to keep the whole day busy.
Last month, my workmates and I went to Talima for our quarterly team building. There were about 30 of us, including our boyfriends/girlfriends. We met at the Hilton Wharf to ride a boat going to the island. You could ride any boat going to the island, but we preferred to use the banca shuttle service from the park itself. The fare for each person is one hundred (P100) back and forth. Some of my officemates were late so we just waited for them and took the 10AM shuttle ride. The first trip is at 8:30 in the morning for those who wanted to be early at the park.
I don’t know if someone is a jinx, but right in the middle of the sea, our boat’s engine stopped. We were like teasing each other that maybe one of us is a jinx since it was the second time we experienced being stranded or delayed. Gladly, our boat was fixed, and we were able to arrive on the island.
Luckily, it was a high tide when we arrived at the island. Some people say that if you go on a low tide, the Funflatables are not fun to ride if there’s just little water. It will be muddy and you can’t enjoy all the water activities. So make sure that you check your calendar before making your plans.
On the island, each person paid four hundred fifty pesos, which includes the entrance and the unlimited ride for the Funflatables. If you like other activities, they have a list of prices right in front of their entrance booth. Our team just chose the Funflatables since we also have other plans for our team building.
It was fun, fun and lots of fun for the whole day. We had games such as tug of war, pinoy henyo, charades and a lot more. We also had cheering competitions per team. It was a total bonding per se. At the end of the day, we were like looking very tired but smiling. Indeed, it was one enjoyable team outing.
