Meet your guide at the hotel and drive about 2 hours south of Metro Manila to Villa Escudero.
This quaint and historic villa is set amidst a pastoral grove in a coconut plantation, a picturesque showcase of old plantation life. Guests tour the plantation aboard a cart pulled by a carabao (water buffalo) while serenaded by a local band.
The villa also has its own museum that houses the family’s extensive and interesting collection of historical, religious and cultural artifacts, some of which date back to prehispanic times. The highlight of your day could be a sumptuous lunch served under an artificial dam while you dip your feet in the cool waters of a nearby lagoon.
A dip in Villa Escudero’s spring-fed pools rounds out your memorable visit. After the tour, transfer to your hotel in Manila.
