A bad start to the day when several taxi drivers either refused to take us or demanded more off the meter. Eventually staff at Ayala mall advised us to take a taxi to the bottom of the mountain and then risk life be asking someone to take us by motorbike to the reserve. Insurance status unsure. It was 35p per... More

The park looks okay, full of trees, has horse ride and photographic spots. Go to this place by renting a taxi, could be safe, not enough or frequent public transportation

The scene is bloody wonderful. I have been to such many resorts and have seen so many scenarios of nature but I just gotta say that Mapawa is such a great fun experience. You get to go to this one way trip. YES. You have to undergo every single challenge of nature for you to get home. They tell you... More

The Emmanuel Pelaez Siblings made a bold decision of addressing climate change in 1995 by converting 2,000 hectares of pasture / grazing land to forest. You can experience the natural forest (30 hectares in 1959 and now 300 hectares by doing nothing...NO CUTTING!). The family planted 1,200 hectares to forest trees. The Pelaez Way of saying: We Can CHANGE by... More

It's a true nature park. There's a waterfall, great trails for hiking and an outdoor place ideal for team building activities. We went to this amazing eco park after it rained, so it's muddy as hell but also lush green. That's part of the adventure. Entrance/environmental fee is Php 50.00 each. If commuting from the highway, you can ride a... More

You'll have to hire a vehicle to get there if you don't have one. They do have tables so you can just bring food and drinks with you if you plan to do just a walk-in visit of the place. The area is wide and we haven't actually been to every corner. I wanted to see the fall but they... More
