Why this petition matters

Started by Hermae Rose Iblan

Paraiso River was once considered a hidden river in Barangay Santiago, Iriga City. The river was not previously well-known or considered a tourist attraction. However, it was recently uncovered through the usage of the social media platform Facebook. Many posts about it encourage people to visit the place. It was open to the public and tourists from other cities and municipalities

The resort was operated by Mr. Pedro Nacario and Management. In just two months after the place was open to public, It became popular to people because of social media. With the number of people who know the area, more and more cottages have been built.There are 11 cottages and they are planning to build more cottages. Mostly the resort was crowded on weekends. Because of the people visiting the place, the river became polluted. More garbage from the tourist floats around the water and river sides. Garbage are not well maintained.

According to Clemencia Velasco, two months after the resort was opened to public, the number of people visiting the place gradually increased because of social media. She also told that a group of people from Naga City visit the place and volunteer to remove the garbage in the river.
