Business Description:

A new and promising river-tourism destination with its cool and cleanest environment

Sibunag River – a free flowing fresh water at the upstream and estuarine at the downstream portion.
The length of the river is approximately 10 kilometers within the territorial jurisdiction of Sibunag
meandering in a north to south direction and ultimately discharged to Guimaras Strait and is considered
as the longest river in the Province of Guimaras.

The downstream of Sibunag River located between Barangay Alegria, Sibunag and Barangay San Antonio,
Nueva Valencia is very rich habitat of seafood such as crustaceans and mollusks, while the upstream will
provide the cool settings of endemic trees, providing as forest cover. During summer, it has been the
refuge of the locals due to its clean, fresh & cool water.

It is proposed to develop the area as a river-tourism destination with the following amenities and
activities:

 Construction of a multi-purpose facility the includes the reception, briefing area, safety and
protective equipment storage room, food stalls/ restaurant and a weaving demonstration facility;
 Building of Floating Cottages and Rafts
 Procurement of Personal Protective Equipment (Safety Gears)
 Rowing and Fishing
 Construction of Esplanade
 Improvement of the Access Road – (Government Sector)
 Construction of the Landing Area – (Government Sector)

The target customers will be the domestic and foreign tourists. They can have more fun preferably on
summer from the months of October-May.
