It was only a strip of level land along the coast belonging to the town of Inabanga. The rich fishing grounds in the shallow waters around the neighboring little islands attracted people from Cebu and other nearby places to settle on the strip of level land. The community grew and flourished but during the 18th century marauding muslims used to come to the place so the community transferred to the top of a hill so that they could watch the coming of marauders. The decision of the Spaniards to give them protection made them return to the old site. In 1874, this barrio which was once called Ambacon became a municipality and was named Jetafe.

Happened to pass by here with my family during our bohol tour, and discovered a little paradise just a few minutes away from the town centre. Thanks to victor and family for your warm hospitality and providing a place to escape from the stress of our daily lives. Truly, CORTE PARADISE RESORT is a place I'll always want to come back to.

There's a lovely swimming pool resort just 10-15 minutes away from the town centre called CORTE PARADISE RESORT. You'll never have trouble finding it because it's located along the national highway and locals will be happy to give you directions. It's particularly good for both international and local tourists who are on a tight budget. Feel free to visit their facebook account: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Corte-Paradise/186863917062
