Villa Escudero Day Trip


July 11, 2014 by bhunch

The best way to end a blessed year is to have a day trip 🙂 yah right a day trip. We can’t afford to take our leave since nothing left for 2012. haha. so absent na lang. sorry boss:)


Go to Buendia Bus Terminal

Ride Jac Liner Bus (approx 2hours travel – 200php fare)

Tell the conductor to drop you at the Tiaong Boundary (right after the big Arch)

Ride tricycle going to the Resort (10mins -20php)

Then o la! you’ll reach the beautiful Villa Escudero Coconut Plantation and Resort

Weekday rates is cheaper than weekend rates, dahil nagtitipid we went on a weekday 🙂

We left Manila at 6AM para sulit!

Here’s the arch (when you saw this you should get off the bus)DSCF7440Since going inside is still 1KM we waited for tricycle to arrive. DSCF7438Here’s our pass and our welcome drink


They have this very cool receiving/souvenir area where you can already feel the “probinsya” life.DSCF7447DSCF7723After registration we walked a bit where our Carabao “Mutya” is waiting. Not your ordinary carabao ride because staffs are serenading you. so sweet.( I borrowed their guitar for photo opt but don’t know how to play with it)DSCF7471 DSCF7476We visited the Pink Church and Museum (but no camera allowed inside, sorry)DSCF7457After that, we checked the restaurant and ordered light breakfast because we want to “sulit” our buffet lunch later, hehe.DSCF7521Food is so, so, not so. Maybe because not their expertise (and not their real offering, just add ons) – 120php for the sandwich w/ chips and 80php for the friesDSCF7532DSCF7530DSCF7529After resting a bit we started to enjoy the pool and the jacuzzi. We arrived early that’s why we were able to use the facilities so much.DSCF7563DSCF7573 DSCF7552

DSCF7572Okay, after the super duper enjoyed swimming we went to the highlight of the place, the buffet and falls area. We arrived early than the others (kaya nasolo namin and was able to take pic na walang bomber). Saya saya 🙂 DSCF7727 DSCF7611DSCF7605 DSCF7629DSCF7648 DSCF7639 DSCF7673 DSCF7665 DSCF7593We enjoyed the food. 8 out of 10 🙂 we rested a while then we tried the next activity, the balsa ride. This is not included in the package, rate is 300php but worth to do since so relaxing and pampababa ng kinain. Take note: 300php is unli use na 🙂DSCF7499 DSCF7701After that we bought a frap in the big restaurant to beat the afternoon heat. (90php)DSCF7707We washed up and change clothes. We had a quick drop at the Church where they held their weddings. DSCF7731DSCF7734Here’s the resort map for your guidance 🙂 DSCF7450Then we waited for their shuttle going outside the resort.Its a fun filled and relaxing day with my bhunch. We need to be relaxed because we will be stressed with 2013 because of our wedding preps.

We went home with a relax mind and love filled heart.

    Greetings. May i ask, the last bus from the villa to manila is at what time? Thank u…


    • bhunch says:

      hi karen,

      Best that you leave Villa Escudero 5PM latest 6PM especially if Sunday because its hard to ride bus by then since most Laguna peeps return to Manila for Monday work or school. Hope that helps.

      have a safe trip!


  3. Anne says:

    Hi! Just want to ask where did you get the ride back to Manila? Did you go to a terminal station or just waited for the bus?



  4. bhunch says:

    Hi ,we just waited for the bus. From Villa Escudero we rode a tricycle going out (highway) then bus will pass by there 🙂 have a safe trip!


  5. Latta says:

    Can you get tickets as you get in at the entrance or do you have to make reservation beforehand online?


  6. bhunch says:

    hi there. you can get tickets there and no need for online reservation (for weekdays) for weekends, best to have online reservation so you can avoid long lines, if any 🙂 enjoy!


  7. Nana says:

    Very informative! Hi I’m from Cebu and I’m planning to be there on December. Wala ba silang van that can pick you up from your hotel to Villa Escudero?


  8. Hi, Thanks for all that info, I’m traveling from California and want to budget my trip as much as possible, how did you get back to Manila? I’m taking my family, i just want to have as much information as possible, thanks!


    • bhunch says:

      Hi there, happy to help. question is how large your family is? best is to rent a car (i can help you with that also if you want since we have contacts already). but in case you want to commute you can take a bus from outside of Villa Escudero that is bound to Buendia Taft. Bus interval is 15-20mins depends on how traffic is in Manila.

      But for a hussle free trip best to rent a car. let me know if you are interested.
