Right after out trip to Baker’s Hill, we went directly to Sta. Monica Mitra’s Ranch. I have never been to a ranch that is why I felt excited coz I am gonna see cows and horses, big trees and nice view.


This is the entrance. The gate is opened wide to accept visitors and tourist. No worries, there is no security guard or representative asking for an entrance fee here. Lol!



DSC_1011cNot only are you going to see horses and see beautiful scenery, but you also have the option to go for extreme and exciting adventure. If the prices are not too clear in the photo, allow me to break it down for you:

1. Zipline for P500.00

2. Horse Back Riding for P50.00

3. Trampoline for P35.00



That is one of the horses that you can ride when you avail the horseback riding adventure.

And this is the rancho Zipline Adventure. For those who love extreme adventure, this is the place for you.DSC_1026

Let’s move to another tourist spot, the Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour. This is a local community project of Brgy. Cabayugan to show tourist their rich environment.


There is a P200.00 fee for this tour. Not only are we going to sit on the entire trip, the tour guide will also discuss everything about what we need to know about nature and their rich community.

The following photos are the Mangroves that we saw during the tour. Believe me, I have seen a lot of mangroves in my home town, but I was amazed because their mangroves are taller and it is more than a hundred years old.60 61 62 63 64


This is the Mangrove Boardwalk, it is a hundred meter long. You will see Mangroves up close on the entire walk; you can hear birds chirping nearby and appreciate the beauty of nature.
