“Calabarzon” is actually short for Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal and Quezon.
All 5 destinations are rich filled with historic landscapes, filipino rich traditions, and boasts near by places for short travel getaways from Manila. It’s actually the home for many as its one of the most populated region of the Philippines.
It will actually take you on an effort to cover the vast area of Calabarzon. If your headed on from the airport to see Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, and Quezon. As you get off the South Luzon Express Way (SLEX) or through the Coastal Road from the airport, is the start of a endearing vacation that will last you a lifetime of memories.
History place a big share of the pie that makes Cavite today. Just by how the original locales would speak really deep Tagalog words are enough to make you feel that Cavite is not your new town to be. Find historic houses which are still preserved and made as museums like the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite.
Or, if you want to get a real kick out of your Cavite History tour – there is an island called Corregidor. It is just less and hour boat ride from Manila bay. It is also known as the “The Rock” – a historic monument and travel destination that is just a “must” to visit.
Well going back the route, along the road you would see pineapple farms and a lot fresh fruit stands to pick up quick groceries when your on your way to Tagaytay. A place of clouds and best “bulalo” are served whilst you feast your eyes on the views of Taal Lake and the Taal Volcano (the smallest active volcano in the world). More attractions can be visited such as “Sky Ranch”, “People’s Park in the Sky” and “Mt. Sungay/Mt. Gonzales” or just relax by your mountain resort hotel and enjoy the mild weather temperature within the city of clouds.
You will be wondered that we would say that Laguna is a “salt haters” world. For some, the beach is not entirely the best destination to go especially if you are not into salt. Cold or hot bath springs, private pool houses, bio reserved camping locations and “chasing water falls” adventures will surely fire your getaway weekends. All in all, traveling Laguna is best for people who wants more of the fresh water fun.
Before leaving Laguna, do not go without taking home the best “buko pie”, “espasol” and the remarkable tasty “kesong puti” made from fresh carabaos milk.
