Batangas | Weekend Getaway

Last June 17, we went to Batangas to celebrate my sister's birthday. We booked at Casa Astillero, Calatagan Batangas. It is a camping site with rooms, tents, open cottages, and kubo. The place is OK but can use some improvement. 

We stayed at their room which I think can fit a barkada. We're 8 in the room and it's quite comfortable naman. No fancy stuff like in hotels because as I've said, it is a camping site. We just preferred to stay in the room because of Nanay and the kids.

The place is full (but not crowded) with campers in the tents and cottages. We rented an open cottage outside where we ate. You can also rent an appliance for ₱300. 

The original plan is to have lunch in their balsa cottage but turned out they don't really maintain the balsa, madumi and malumot. I mean we would want to spent the entire afternoon there. We cancelled the "balsa plan" but the manong suggested a more swimmable beach area compared to Casa. Yes, di masyadong ok yung beach nila. Malumot nga plus the part na clear naman e mabato. 

So we went to the other side and it turned out it was the Manuel Uy beach resort. It was a 10-15 minutes boat ride.
The water is clean and the beach is shallow so the kids enjoyed it. We stayed there for an hour and a half.
The following day is ate's birthday. The kids surprised (kind of?!) her and decorated the cake that bunso baked.
After we checked out, we went to Caleruega. We just prayed and left for lunch since we already visited the place a few times already.
We ate lunch at Char's Garden Café Tagaytay. Visit this place, guys; if you want a great homey vibe, good food, and value for your money.

That's it! I am so grateful we were able to spend quality time together over great food, beautiful place, swimming fun, adventure, and real-life experiences. I am looking forward to more trips and sunsets like this. ↓
