We’re on MECQ again. What can we enjoy outside and where should we go?

              Considering the 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. curfew due to the modified enhanced community quarantine imposed in some towns and component cities of Cebu, activities available for us to enjoy are limited to a very few. Don’t worry though. Here’s a list of pandemic-friendly outdoor recreation in Cebu that spells fun.

Tennis court rental is P400 an hour from 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. and P500 an hour from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.

              Being one of the few outdoor activities allowed over the pandemic, riding bikes has become a popular sport. Hit the road, ride along Manipis Road of Talisay, and enjoy the scenic view, fresh air, and challenging road conditions.
