My mom did her research on the whale sharks and she found us a reasonably-priced pension house where we could stay. Unfortunately, she did not research about what else we could do in Oslob so she booked us for three nights at the Malonzo Pension House.
The Malonzos were decent folks and were super helpful to make our experience in Oslob a comfortable one. The pension house was about 20 minutes away from the whale shark area but it was in the town area so it was not that bad. We arrived late in the afternoon from the city and we had dinner there with the lechon we bought from Carcar. The Malonzos had a small sari-sari store so it was very convenient for us to just get stuff and they just put everything on our tab.
Day 1 was for rest. After all, it was almost dusk already by the time we got there. Day 2 was for the whale sharks and Tumalog falls. We even had siesta in between. Day 3 was lull day. My brothers and my dad decided to go to Dumaguete which was an hour's bus ride and ferry ride away. They bought loads of crabs and shrimps from the city since there's no seafood in town AT ALL. My sister then grilled the shrimps and I cooked the crabs in coconut milk (and yes, it was tasty!). And early morning of Day 4, we headed back to Cebu City. But we also stopped by the cuartel and the old, old church for some photos!
I suggest folks visiting Oslob to stay a maximum of one night only since there's barely anything to do. Some even fit the activities in one day. One night and two days is adequate enough to have your fun without being too tired. And there's also the option of coming in or flying out from Dumaguete since the trip to Oslob is shorter (about an hour) compared to the four-hour ride from Cebu City.
Family is the most important thing in the world.
