Cagayan de Oro City | A 7-Hour Day Tour

We recently had a quick trip to Cagayan de Oro City. We left Iligan at about 11:00 am and we're back home at around 10:00pm. Travel time is roughly two hours each way, leaving us seven hours to enjoy the City of Golden Friendship.

How to Enjoy Cagayan de Oro if You Only Have 7 hours

With the limited time we had, we only had 3 stops, with the first stop near the airport, which is technically outside CdeO.

Here's a short video of our trip:

Lunch at Lohas Hotel

We had our lunch at Coco Mango Cafe and Resto in Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental. Food tastes good, but to be honest, service leaves much to be desired. Service was slow, and the soup was served last. But as you can see in the video, serving size was okay and we finished everything 😉.

Then we had a quick tour in Lohas Hill Homes and Business Park, a mixed-use development over a slightly rolling terrain along the National Highway. Some areas are still under construction, but we were able to check out the infinity pool.

Coffee Break at Hugo Skye Lounge / Sierra Del Oro

Next stop was at Sierra del Oro in Indahag, Cagayan de Oro. We had coffee at Sierr-a-cup while enjoying the beautiful view of the city.

Cagayan de Oro is the fourth largest metropolitan area in the Philippines, but it doesn't mean that they only have large shopping malls to offer. It's always a great idea to take the chill route and spend time in the highlands and enjoy the fresh air away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
