Pagsanjan Falls (Laguna, Philippines) with Nanay (my grandmother) and Uncle Intoy


Experience

Another unexpected crossed-out goal.

Went to Laguna for a family outing. Originally planning to go to Pansol but went to Pagsanjan instead. Pagsanjan is famous for its falls but while we were at the resort, we found out that the boat ride to and from Pagsanjan Falls costs P1,250 per person. It is too expensive so we scrapped the idea of going and decided to just enjoy the swimming pools. But on our last day at the resort, my uncle asked my grandmother if she wanted to go to the falls and she said she'd come if I'd go with them too. I didn't have money but my mother volunteered to pay for it because she knows how much I wanted to see waterfalls. See, I love my family! 

The journey to and from the falls took almost 2 hours but hearing, seeing and feeling the gushing water was worth it. 

Upon reaching the great Pagsanjan Falls, we rode a "balsa" and passed under it into a small cave. The water was really falling hard on us but it wasn't painful. It was like a massage, a really hard massage as my grandmother says. 

We encountered a lot of tourists on our way back to the resort. We observed that the Koreans (they looked like Koreans) hardly smiled back while the Americans and fellow Filipinos were more friendly as they smiled, waved and said hello to us.

Tips / Recommendations

Don't forget to put on sunblock before going.

Bring waterproof camera.

You may opt not to wear shoes/slippers because the stony paths are very slippery.
