Uruguay Mountain Spring Resort is located in the Northern part of Cebu, Barangay Corte, Carmen. The municipality of Carmen is around 40 kilometers away from Cebu City. The Mountain Resort is one of Carmen’s pride where water is very fresh and a very pleasant during summer.
Carmen is accessible through public buses and you’ll reach the spring in an hour or two. You drop off Carmen public market from there you’ll ride a habal-habal which will cost you around 50 pesos per person. And since the road going to the spring is not a pavement, it’s a guest’s choice to hike or ride a habal-habal. Don’t worry though, it is safe and nature will embrace your way.
While in Carmen, visit St. Benedict’s Monastery still in Barangay Corte. You’ll find the Lady of Manaoag Rosary Center the mysteries are portrayed through beautiful paintings. There also is a huge statue of the Child Jesus, Sto. Niño beside the church. In addition to that, the scenic view of Carmen.
The spring is fresh and a perfect place to relax. Don’t expect though to view a very luxurious place since the place is “inato” with a big pool that is more or less 10 feet deep and a couple of cottages for a minimal entrance and parking fee enough to maintain the place. Bring food and beverages as there is limited source around the vicinity.
Instead of going to the beach for the whole day where the sun’s heat sting, try the spring’s fresh cold water for a change.
