Hot Spring Private Resort in Pansol Laguna


Before the summer wrapped up this year, we decided to have a last minute get-away from the city and the nearest place is Laguna which is a one and half hour drive from our place since we left very early in the morning. My 83-year old mom is suffering from arthritis and will be very hard for her a long travel if we will go to the nearest beach resort with travel time of minimum of 4 hours and also the resort we rented is with hot spring pool, it will be best for her aching muscles and us to relax our bodies and to renew energies.


Since it’s a private, the resort is all for ourselves the whole day, we brought food and snacks, then barbecued some meat on the grill near the pool, there is a stove available if we want to cook but with a charge of Php200.



For the amenities, besides the two swimming pools (adult and kiddie) there is also a billiard table if we want to play and Videoke machine, big dining area. There’s a refrigerator to stock perishable food and for cold drinks (we brought our own drinking water as it was not provided), ice and charcoal for grilling. Checked-in time is 8 am and check-out is 5 pm, so we didn’t waste any time and spend the whole day swimming, eating specially the kids, and singing. lol


For the package, there are three air-conditioned rooms and one fan room, two shower rooms, and two toilets, a nipa hut near the pool if you want to relax after swimming, the place is newly painted and okay, but a little improvement should be done maybe on the comfort rooms.


Since it’s summer and peak season, the rent is Php 7000 for day tour only (8am-5pm), overnight from 7 pm- 6am is Php 9000 and 22 hrs is Php18,000 if I’m not mistaken. But during the lean season which is from June-November and January-February it’s lower and you can haggle more during weekdays.

Note: I forgot the name of the resort as this was not the original one we reserved and was transferred to this place because the first one suffered power outage and will not be repaired till the next day. All in all, we enjoyed our stay there, specially the kids in the swimming pool and the adults at the videoke machine with the top pick timber drum at musiciansfriend accompaniment.





Tips for Buying a Paddleboard



There are many fun activities that you can try in the summer if you enjoy the water. You might not be athletic enough to try surfing. If this is the case, you have nothing to worry about. Paddleboarding is an activity that will allow you to be on the water in a manner that is much more controlled and safe than surfing. However, you will need to do a little research before you spend a considerable amount of money on a paddleboard. This is a big purchase and you need to be sure that you get it right. Here are some tips that will assist you in this endeavor.

1. What company makes the paddleboard?

You need to pay attention to the paddleboard’s manufacturer. This is a very crucial detail because all boards are not made with the same level of quality. This is why you will find a large price difference between some of the boards that are available. You need to decide if you want to pay a little more money for a paddleboard that is made out of the best materials and will last for a very long time. Buying a paddleboard for a low price will save you some money. However, you will most likely need to buy another board in the near future.

2. How big to you want the board to be?

There is a large selection of paddleboards for you to choose from. You can get one that is very wide and provides you with a greater amount of stability. Alternately, you can select one that is narrow and allows you to travel on the water at a greater amount of speed. The size paddleboard you buy should be related to the amount of experience you have. More experienced riders will be able to keep their balance more easily. Therefore, they will not need a wider board to help them keep their balance.

3. Do you plan on standing or sitting while you are paddleboarding?

This is another consideration that you will need to make. Many people prefer to sit on their paddleboard so they do not have any risk of falling into the water. These people often like to have a wider board because it provides them with more surface area on which to sit. You would be wise to test out several different boards before you make your final decision.

Tinago Falls is a waterfall in Iligan City, Lanao del Norte in the southernPhilippineisland of Mindanao.[1] It is one of the main tourist attractions in Iligan, a city known as the City of Majestic Waterfalls.

Tinago is a Filipino term meaning “hidden”, the falls being hidden in a deep ravine. Trekking to the falls requires approximately 500 descending steps called the winding staircase.

The falls is high, its very cold waters cascading beautifully into a deep and calm basin-like pool which appears like a blue-colored lagoon. Under the falls is a small cave where people can enter and listen to the rumbling waters. – wikipedia
