I know these photos are gross. Forgive me, please. I am a travel blogger, and I want you guys to know that we have to be careful in any place we visit. These people were not from Valencia, Negros Oriental, where the beautiful Casaroro Falls is situated.
Locals are always swimming in the waterfall, but they know exactly which part of the waterfall is too deep and where the part the current is too strong. There is no lifeguard, but tourists are always advise NOT TO SWIM. No lifeguard, because the entrance is free. Locals are the one maintaining the area.
Thank you for dropping by guys. Again, I am so sorry. Thank you for Greg Morales for the photos.
