From different waterfalls to river resorts, Murcia is home to the province & rsquo;s flagship tourism attraction, the scenic and lovely Mambukal Summer Resort. Sports-enthusiasts always go and visit the Bacolod Golf and Country Club in Hacienda Binitin located at the Barangay Blumentritt, a place of various national tournaments.
