Have you tried swimming in a man-made pool inside a cave? There’s a place about 3 hours and 40 minutes drive from Cagayan de Oro City where you can cool off your stressed body from a busy schedule. VINAPOR BLUE WATER RESORT or more known locally as Jurassic Beach Resort is located in Barangay Vinapor in the town of Carmen in Agusan del Norte. Carmen is the first town outside of Misamis Oriental if you’re going to Butuan City.

The resort is nestled along the coastal cliffs of Barangay Vinapor with a magnificent view of the open sea, some 14 kilometers from the National Highway and at the northern tip of the town. The landmark along the highway is Tagcatong Elementary School where you can ride habal-habal to Barangay Vinapor proper. See map below.

The resort is formerly called Jurassic Beach and got its name from the several figures of dinosaurs and other animals sculpted on the rocks inside the resort. See samples below.

What really makes this place tick is its seclusion and privacy…

The pool isn’t that big really…its just 3 feet deep.
