Places to Visit in Laguna, Philippines

Laguna is about an hour drive from Manila. Here are some places you can visit. I hope I would have time to write additional details for each.

  • Enchanted Kingdom (EK) – Sta. Rosa City, Laguna

This is a very popular theme park where a variety of rides and attractions are available for children and even the adults/ parents. Entrance is around P600 per head. You can check EK’s website here for additional information and promos: http://www.enchantedkingdom.ph/

Here you could enjoy fish feeding, boat riding and sightseeing. And there are also good restaurants around.

  • Splash Island – Binan, Laguna

If you’re looking for a nice water park, then this one is worth a try. We were there just once and it was several years ago (2005). The entrance now is around P500 per head – https://www.ticketworld.com.ph/Online/splashisland

  • Rizal Shrine (ancestral house of our national hero) – Calamba City, Laguna

This is a historical site featuring the ancestral house of Dr. Jose Rizal, the Philippine National Hero. This is near the old Calamba City Hall and there is no entrance fee.

  • Pansol Hot Spring Resorts – Calamba City

Pansol is an area where lots of hot spring resorts are located. You could already go swimming for an entrance fee of around P50.  That’s the lowest I know for those public resorts. And of course if you want some privacy, you can rent private resorts (around P5,000) for the whole group.

  • Pandin Lake – San Pablo City

Pandin Lake is one of the popular seven lakes in San Pablo City. When you go to Pandin, you will also be able to see the other nearby lake – Yambo Lake. You just have to take the bamboo raft to get you to the other side.

  • Villa Sylvia Resort (VSR) – Brgy. Banago, Nagcarlan, Laguna

Now if you’re looking for a mountain resort where you can relax and avoid the very hot summer, then I would recommend Villa Sylvia Resort. It’s a cold spring resort with water flowing freely from Mt. Banahaw.
