Summer Adventure at Laresio


June 25, 2016

Summer is coming and all of us want to have a water adventure to escape the busy city of Metro Manila, and Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa is maybe one of the perfect places to choose from.

This time I will share my own experience with you, but before then let me give you some information about Laresio.

Have you ever heard about the Alligator Lake of Laguna? Maybe some of us only know the Laguna Lake (largest lake in the Philippines and considered to be the third largest inland body of water in Southeast Asia) and the very famous seven lakes of San Pablo consist of Lake Bunot, Lake Calibato, Lake Palakpakin, Lake Muhikap, twin lakes of Yambo and Pandin and Lake Sampaloc. According to, Crocodile Lake also known as, Alligator Lake or Tadlac Lake, is a freshwater crater lake located in the southern part of Laguna De Bay in Los BaƱos. It is known for its picturesque sight, clear waters, and recreational fishing and as they said Laresio is the road to Alligator Lake.

Okay! So let me start the one of my so-called “first-times”

Because my parents don’t usually allow me to go to places besides our hometown it’s difficult for me to have their yes, So when my friends asked me if I can make it I just said no. But the after almost a month of persuading they let me go with my friends (strictly back at home before 6 p.m or else... palo! lol).



·         - Take a bus ride going to Santa Cruz, Laguna.

·         - Get down at Barangay Bagong Kalsada (near 7-11, across Jonel Spring Resort).

·         - Ride a Tricycle going to Laresio Lakeside Resort and Spa.

(The three of us (I, Pecapi and Bels) are from  Tiaong, Quezon. So we take a jeepney going to San Pablo Laguna then ride a jeepney also going to Calamba, get down at Barangay Bagong Kalsada and ride a tricycle to reach Laresio.)

We got to the destination at around 10 am. We eat first before trying the water activities (I need to get energized for this one, nervousness all over my body haha)

(At the lobby)

All of us decided to availed the 'All Wet Activities' amounting to P600 (if I'm not mistaken) which include activities such as unlimited Cliff Diving (13 ft and 32 ft), Slip and Dip (32 ft slide), Vine Swing (13 ft vine)  and Slip and Fly. But during that time, Slip and Fly is under maintenance so we added the Kayaking on the list. 

We try first the Vine Swing. At first, I almost cried. I feel like I’m too weak compared to my friends who are brave enough to try all the activities. So I have no choice, I must try it also (nakakaloka bes). As I took off, I just screamed "Papa ko! Uuwi na po ako"!

(I did it mga bes! Para sa ekonomiya! hahaha)

Next up, is the Slip and Dip, Kayaking and Cliff Diving. 

And as expected Jonnel is the only one who did the 32ft cliff diving. 

(Our "required group selfies")

Before going back home, we took a photo at the huge Instagram post as seen below.

It is not as crowded as we expected so we try all the activities hassle-free. All in all, it is one of the best “first-times” I’ve done with my friends.
