Philippine Eagle Center, being one of the most popular tourists’ destinations in Davao is our next stop for our Davao Lagaw.

On our way back , we asked the driver to drop by the Philippine Eagle Center. We decided not to visit Malagos Garden and go straight to PEC.

It is located at Barangay Malagos in Baguio District. PEC is inside the Davao City Water District’s (DCWD) Watershed Park. It is known to be the haven of the Philippine Eagles and other animals in captivity. The park serves to be their habitat and breeding ground.

Fees

  • Davao City Water District’s (DCWD) Watershed Park- Php 5.00 (adults)/ Php3.00 (kids)
  • Philippine Eagle Center(PEC) – Php 50.00 (adults)/ Php 30.00 (kids)

Guide and use of tables/ chairs are free of charge.

How to get there:

PEC is about an hour to an hour and a half drive to the south of Davao City.

  • Public Transportation – From city proper (Annil Terminal), ride a bus headed to Calinan. Regular 15 minutes interval for bus departure is expected. Fare is at Php30.00 from the city to Calinan.  From Calinan, hail a pedicab going to PEC which will cost you Php 6.00 per head. Public utility jeepneys are also available in San Pedro Street. Last jeepney trip going to Davao is at 6pm.
  • Taxi –   A taxi ride from Davao City to PEC will approximately cost Php 1,500.00. Never forget to negotiate and agree on the tour coverage.
  • Driving – Follow the main highway from Davao City going south (road to Digos and GenSan). Drive until you reach Ulas – Calinan junction then turn right. Go straight ahead (approx. 15 mins drive) then make a left towards Malagos. Keep an eye on the signage of the park on your right side.

Reminders:

  • Do not forget to bring and use insect repellant lotion or spray. Insects and mosquitoes are expected in the park.
  • Haggle on your shopping. Inside the DCWD Water Park are stores that offer tshirts, sarong, fruits and souvenir photos with exotic animals.
  • In need of food? Don’t worry, inside the park is Eagle Forest Inn and Eagle’s Deck Cafe.

Up next, our misadventures and adventure for lunch.
