Surfing is probably the first thing that comes to mind when Baler is mentioned. Just 5-6 hours away from Manila, this place is becoming quite popular nowadays. So back in a long weekend in August, Me and my friends found ourselves in Baler Aurora, basking in the sun and enjoying the waves.

welcome to baler!
We stayed in AMCO beach resort which is a 5 minute walk from the beach. This is a nice place to go home to after a full days worth of touring and surfing. Don't expect 5 star hotel-like ambience though, they only offer basic A/C rooms for around 1000/night. 

We got the package via goodvibes tour for P2500/pax inclusive of tour and van transfers. Meet up was in monumento. You can reach them via their fb page HERE. Van used was ok, medyo masikip pero ok na rin since mabait naman yun guides. These are the place we went to:

- Mother Falls
- Baler market (for pasalubong)
- Diguisit Beach
- Yellow Sand
- Ermita Hill
- Quezon Museum
- Dona Aurora Museum
- Baler Church
- Centennial Tree
- Sabang Beach

For mother falls, before reachings the falls, you'd trek for 30-45mins muna and the path is quite hard. Definitely not for kids and senior citizens. Sobrang worth naman pag narating mo ang Falls, it was breathtaking.

- you can hire an instructor for surfing here, 350/pax inclusive of board and instructor. If board lang 200/hour. Waves when we were here were not that big, so it suited us beginners.

All in all, the trip was worth it. But next time though, we'll probably stay there for 3 days 2 nights so we can enjoy the sights more. Mala - amazing race kasi ang ginawa namin. ^__^
