Mt. Gulugod Baboy is a popular level 1 climb as UP Mountaineering would call it and is located in the heart of Anilao, Batangas. It is also becoming popular as what people call a night trek spot where you climb the mountain at night with only headlamps and the one in front of you as … Continue reading [MtGulugodBaboy #2] A glimpse of a Mt. Gulugod Baboy Climb!
Mt. Gulugod Baboy climb was my first mountain climbing experience. I underestimated it and my shots were uninspired. I’m a virgin climber and the experience was almost orgasmic when you reached the top. This was my own little version of Mt. Everest climb and will all the hype surrounding Mountain Climbing in the Philippines, this … Continue reading [MtGulugodBaboy # 1] Confessions of a Virgin Climber
I’ve been traveling every weekend recently and I can’t wait to tell you the story about this Mt. Gulugud Baboy adventure. I’ll be on blog leave over the long 3 days holiday and I do hope that I get to catch up on my blog stories when I get back.
Food, Drinks, and Pets are not allowed inside the resort so you have to be contented with eating at the Filipino Fishpond Restaurant or at Cucina de Oro (which serves international cuisine pasta, pizza, etc.). … My wife, Rache also enjoyed the massage at the Serendipity Spa for P500 🙂 For me, I enjoyed the cultural show and taking photos of the surroundings and the golden sunset.
…My wife did not get away with it because I tried to grab Aidan and take care of him so that I won’t be selected to participate 🙂 Aidan with the beautiful dancers of the Cultural show.
I’ll give you a virtual tour anyway of the resort which is similar to an Island Cove setup but in a much cooler ambiance at night plus a great view of Calatagan’s famous golden sunset.
…I’ve done this and believe me you don’t want to go here to get last minute cash because of how far it is and how traffic it would be during busy hours. … It is favorable for the resort because you end up maximizing the passport so it is a kind-of-up sell strategy and for us we ended up paying for P2,000 during our stay (which we did not intend to spend…)
I actually had to drop by as a walk-in and risk that I will be rejected but fortunately I was able to get a standard room for 3 days and 2 nights.
…During Peak Season from Mar16 – Jun15, the airconditioned rooms would costs: – a Standard Room good for 1-2 guests would costs P3,080, – a Deluxe room with a loft for 1-4 guests would costs P4,180 – Garden Cove with loft for 2-6 guests would costs P4,950 The costs includes a Filipino/ Continental Breakfast, Welcome Drink (iced tea) and use of the facilities (swimming pool, butterfly sanctuary, jacuzzi, playground, etc.) … In the next post, I’ll include what are the things you can do in Golden Sunset Resort, How to get there, and some more postcard shots of the place to give you a virtual tour.
This post is just all about the sunset shots I made and I suggest that you gotta watch this when you decide to visit this place. For those of you who are in the office and I do hope these shots would de-stress you and make you more excited to visit the Philippines awesome beaches.
…Red Sunset Thanks to Joey, Tisha and Diego for the Playa Calatagan opportunity 🙂 The first of many sunsets that Aidan would enjoy 🙂 Poppa and Aidan who hates the feel of sand that is why he keeps on raising his other feet 🙂

With a beautiful beach such as Playa Calatagan — I do hope that it can bring it’s vision alive of bringing the Boracay spirit in Calatagan, 3 hours away from Manila. … What’s great about the Playa Calatagan vision, is that there is a private resort for the seaside community but also there is a public commercial area envisioned to be the Boracay Party Place of Batangas 🙂 As mentioned in my earlier post, I’m glad the Palacios family decided to develop their beach and it has huge huge potential. … Take note that I refrained from using retirement house since the vision is that the community would be younger and more vibrant 🙂 I think this is a lot better than the Anvaya Seaside community in Subic.
Temporary Pavilion @ Playa Calatagan, Batangas (Playa is spanish for beach) Before I leave for a blog vacation for the entire March, I would like to share with you a beach discovery 3 hours away from Manila! … There are three criteria for me for a great beach resort: (a) the beach sand is white fine sand, (b) the water is so calm that children could swim in it, (c) a beautiful sunset right in front of the beach! Playa Calatagan meets those three criteria except for the beach having a brownish tint but its finer than most of the beaches in Batangas 🙂 It is still in its natural virgin state and it was owned by Mayor Palacios Family (that is why it remained private all these years!)
