(Aug 15, 2013) Considering Maxima AquaFun Resort is not that far from Davao City, and even accessible by public transportation, it makes a perfect weekend getaway. The secluded beach house that juts out into the water offers a private sanctuary with a majestic view of Mt. Apo across the water. The in-house toys (jet ski, banana boat, plank diving and the tarpaulin slides) gives the resort an adrenaline edge. The coral reef on which the resort sits on, plunges down on a vertical wall - perfect for free-diving or scuba diving. Maxima AquaFun is a lot of FUN! (read BLOG)
