Family gathering in the Batangas

Collection Hotspots

This is the beach of La Luz in Hugom. 

My dad's town

Went for a #family gathering in San Juan, Batangas. 

San Juan, Batangas is about 180 kilometers south of #Manila. It is the easternmost town of Batangas, next to #Quezon province. It is on the coast thus there are many stretches of sandy #beach to be enjoyed. One of them is La Luz in Hugom, about 25 minutes drive from the town proper of San Juan, named after a saint of course. 

Cabanas are so cool they're hot!

I love these cabanas by the beach at La Luz. They are great for #hot days and #cool #evenings. You can even have your #massage there! These ones at La Luz have speakers and lights too with on/off switches.

Native dining hall where fresh food is served three times a day. 

The waters of this area is great for #snorkeling. 

The next resort can be seen from La Luz. We stayed there when we went back in 2013.

Bahay kubo - native house on stilts

When I was growing up there was this #song my nanny Yolly sang to me all the time about bahay kubo surrounded by a #vegetable #garden. This one doesn't have the lush garden but it sure is neat!

Pros: good #snorkelling spot, nice beach, good food, price is reasonable, friendly staff

Cons: no divemaster (for my sis) part of the road is unpaved

In a nutshell: a good beach #destination accessible by land from Manila
