Locals and visitors will soon have easy access to all eco-tourism attractions in the city as the comprehensive “Eco-tourism directory” is almost finished.

Councilor Gerky Valesco, who chairs the Committee on Tourism, said once completed, the Eco-tourism directory will give people simple and trouble-free listing of all tourism destinations in the city.

Expected to be included in the directory are the city’s waterfalls, caves, rivers, lakes, beaches, trekking sites, mountains and many others.

“A lot of Zamboangueños are not aware of the range of natural wonders we have here, specially the visitors, the more they do not have any idea,” said Jennifer Ybanez, from Zamboanga, in the dialect.

She added that, “the directory will be a great help as it will give them choices on possible destinations,” she added.

It will be easier for me to help in the tourism promotion because it will be simpler for me to recommend eco-tourism destinations once we have this directory, Ybanez said.
