    The Blue Lagoon And The Kabigan Falls In Pagudpud Ilocos Norte

    Went to see the famous "Blue Lagoon" and the Kabigan falls during our last day in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte. The whole trip was less exciting and adventurous than I expected.

    The Great Start

    He's pacing back and forth. 6am. That's the agreed time to meet. The tricycle driver, whom we've arranged to take us around, was late.

    Got tempted more than one time to say something to my friend. For some reason, I just kept my mouth shut. I could understand why he was getting impatient, whilst I was a bit considerate with the whole situation. Patience isn't one of my virtues, as one ex-boyfriend to ...

    Blue Lagoon In Pagudpud Ilocos Norte

    We were in Pagudpud, and we just learned that the nearest ATM is in Laoag. We didn't have cash. Oh my, "How are we going to eat?" Haha!

    This trip happened years ago. I don't know if Pagudpud has an ATM now, but during that time we were caught off guard. It just didn't cross our minds that a certain place could probably have no ATM. I was a newbie traveler that time, didn't make enough research before exploring a destination.

    Our next stop that day was the famous beach in town, the white sand and bluish waters of the Blue Lagoon! On our way there, we made a stop to the high part of the ro ...

    Ilocos Region. A tourist destination of Northern Luzon's preserved Philippine historical places. It's a region divided into Ilocos Norte & Ilocos Sur. Join me as I dissect my memorable trip into a story for this cyber diary.

    First things first. How did we get there and how long was the trip:
    We booked our tour package at for Php3,250 per head which is the actual amount that is different from the website pricing maybe because of the season that we travelled. During June-Aug they have minimal tours so there were no discounts when we booked.

    Blue White And Zip Blue Lagoon

    Pagudpud's most popular beach destination, Blue Lagoon is called as such because of the azure blue waters that can be found in this lagoon. It's a good place for families with kids thanks to Hannah's Resort and Convention Center, the largest resort in Pagudpud.

    Some of the activities you can do in Blue Lagoon are riding a jet ski, surfing, and the longest over-water zipline in the country. Hannah's operates a zip line that's over 1 km long which will have tourists flying over Blue Lagoon.

    Several surfing schools, like Surfville and Kapuluan Surf School, can be found along the shoreline o ...

  • Charming Philippine Coves

    Charming Philippine Coves

    Artist Jason Mraz once shared, "My home isn't about being grounded in one corner of the planet. It's about being in love and being lost in the middle of an amazing adventure, witnessing sunbursts over horizons of every time zone". I couldn't agree more… Spot on words that have never been spoken.

    A cove is a small, circular to an oval type of bay or coastal inlet, usually with narrow, restricted entrances.

    The Philippines, being an archipelago, have some well-tucked and serene coves perfect for swimming and bumming. These coves are ideal places for swimming because they are believed to ...
