    The Archdiocesan Shrine of St. Padre Pio

    by nixca316 Written Aug 25, 2015

    Whether you are a Catholic or not, it would be a pleasure to visit this shrine. There's a belfry where you could find a bell from the Netherlands and before reaching the top, you would be able to learn about the life of St. Pio of Pietrelcina. They have a very minimal entrance fee. It's only PhP20.00!

    Go view the crater of Taal Volcano, it's worth it!

    by nixca316 Updated Oct 9, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The view on top is breathtaking that you would forget for a moment on how you got to the top and would shelve for a while your strategies on how to go down gracefully.


    You can go trekking or ride a pony, donkey or horse. Since they, pardon me, poop, I think it's best to ride one of the equines.

    You can just get a boat if you're coming from Tagaytay or travel by land, if you're coming from the towns or cities in Batangas, but I still believe it's best to get a package for groups.

    The price per person lowers when you are a bigger group.

    If you're going to ride a pony, a donkey or a horse and you have a guide with you,
    here are some tips:

    1.Even if your package is fully paid, have at least PhP200 in 50s with you for gloves(or bring your own), for your jockey/guide's drink upon reaching the crater view deck, and for the tip. The guides only get very little for all their trouble.

    2. Wear a body bag that can fit your face towel, a bottle of water, some trail mix or if you think you can handle it, wear a knapsack.

    Our group entered through the former CLUB LAKE, Talisay with guides, Bryan and his wife, Lenlen. Unfortunately, I was not the one who contacted them, but they are a nice couple.

    WAY 1:

    1. from aguinaldo highway go past the arc saying welcome to nasugbu and just keep going straight.

    2. at the end of teh highway, is a small rotonda, going left will take you to calaca, turning right will take you to punta fuego. go right.

    3. after the rotonda, keep going straight. at the end will be a "T" intersection. going left will take you to Lian, going right will take you to nasugbu town proper. go right.

    4. just follow the highway, when you turn right. it will take you inside the town of nasugbu( there's no by-pass road) just fdollow the road, it will take you up 2 mountains i think before you reach punta fuego.

    it's not hard to get lost going to punta fuego, as there are a lot of road signs pointing to terrazas de punta fuego after you pass the Nasugbu/Lemery intersection coming from tagaytay.

    make sure your vehicle is in very good condition as teh inclines here are very steep.

    drive safe and have fun!!!(Directions are from Arvin Cristi)

    WAY 2: (From a Nasugbu local)

    Take SLEX.

    Exit Sta. Rosa.

    Go straight till you reach tagaytay. make a right turn going to rotonda. staright again pass the tagaytay rotonda.

    Drive straight...

    pass the casino, royale tagaytay, splendido.

    If you pass by evercrest, you are on the right track. Drive downhill till you reach the nasugbu rotonda. turn right.

    dirve straight again. pass the sugar mill and make a right after you see the sheel station(left side).

    Drive straight again pass the town proper.

    Just follow the directional signs after that... you won't get lost. If you need a tour guide i am willing to help you.

    I am from nasugbu by the way. (Alias Bilog)

    Barangays of Resorts

    by miguel_arcangel Written Feb 6, 2011

    According to myth, the name “Mataasnakahoy” was derived from a big tree evidently seen going to that town. Since the big tree is their marker, they started calling it MataasnaKahoy. The name Mataas na Kahoy literally means "tall tree".

    The town is bounded by Balete and Lipa City and is known for its breezy atmosphere due to its high elevation.

    Several resorts are in operation in different barangays and the town is known for these resorts- Shercon Resort and Galilee Place which are both located in Barangay San Sebastian, El Madero Resort in Barangay II and La Virginia in Barangay Manggahan. I’ve seen all these resorts and they are all good, but La Virginia stands out among them having most of the amenities, the good inspection of the surroundings and breathtaking sight of the taal and the resort itself secluded in the slope.

    This is the Baclaran Church's "sister" as VTer joysweet said...

    My uncle, Father Ernie Garcia, is its parish priest...the parishioners are very friendly. He even gave him a fiesta (equivalent to a Wedding Feast) on his sacerdotal anniversary.

    (The website link is a video of his 25th Sacerdotal Anniversary)

    That's the celebrator in front =) with RJ

    San Juan

    by nimato Updated Nov 19, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    San Juan town is fast becoming a popular beach destination for Manila and nearby residents. Though less frequented compared to Matabungkay, Calatagan and Anilao, strips of the town's Laiya coastline is now the site of on-going developments envisioned to rival beach life at Boracay (can't beat the beach though!). The one in the thumbnail is the private Napayong Beach.

    Day Hike To Mount Maculot

    by nimato Updated Nov 18, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At 2700 feet ASL, Mount Maculot in Cuenca town is the highest peak around Taal Lake. It is the visible mountain at the far back of Taal Volcano when the volcano is viewed from Taal Vista in Tagaytay. The mountain offers a spectacular view of the volcano and lake from another angle. On a clear day, the Batangas City port and shoreline is also viewable from the horizon.

    Maculot (curly in Tagalog) was so named due to the curly-looking forest covering of the mountain. It's summit can be reached in as little as 4 hours from the town center and shorter when getting down.

    On top of Mount Maculot rockies (not the peak yet) Behind me is the summit of Mt. Maculot Taal Lake 'behind' Vic

    Sandy Beach

    Batangas is generally known to be a "dive" town - there are more dive resorts than that of a sandy beach type. But the area of San Juan Batangas is where the sandy beaches are located (Includes: La Luz, Laiya Coco Grove, KAbayan Resort, Virgin Beach among others)

    Salt Water/Reef Pool

    by joysweet Written Apr 6, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Eagle Point Resort's main attraction (for me) is their salt water pool. They are nursing 7 baby sharks, a pawikan (turtle) and several marine life. Perfect 1st time snorklers and kids.

    Feeding time of the sharks at 8am. Make sure not to miss this!

    The reef pool is 7-9 feet deep, i think this is also where they have their intro dive lessons.

    Balai Laiya Resort

    by arni_ph075 Written Jul 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Balai Resort in Bgy. Laiya in the town of San Juan got a white sand beach, ideal for swimming. The resort offers also overnight accommodation on their native rooms, option for airconditioned or fan room.

    The place is very ideal also for big groups, as they got complete facilities.

    The beach is okay, but current is very strong, that you need to be careful on swimming, but there is a lifeguard also that watches over.

    They got some nipa huts also for guest use, and also some barbeque stands..

    On my last visit the concern i got is there is no signal on cellphones yet..
