Trade the mayhem of Manila for the zen of Laguna

Situated in the Calabarzon region, Laguna sits about 90 minutes from Manila, and is considered to be one of the best weekend beach getaways for locals and visitors alike. The province wraps around the Laguna de Bay, where waterfront bungalows and luxury condos are the perfect option for couples, families, and groups of friends exploring the Philippines. No matter which one you pick, you can bet that a mini-break in a Laguna vacation rental will mean pure relaxation, and a true escape from the hustle and the bustle of Southeast Asia's busiest cities.

Can your eyes even handle all this natural beauty?

With so much natural beauty, the majority of Laguna's top highlights can be found outside. With over 600 species, the Philippines is one of the world's best birdwatching destinations, while the local lakes and bays are perfect spots to take a swim. Go on an adventure among the caves and cascading waterfalls, or plan a night under the stars, pitching your tent at one of the many local campsites. When you need a bit of a break from the wildlife, head into your Laguna vacation rental, which will undoubtedly come with a spectacular view.

Lush, green landscapes that botanists' dreams are made of

Local tour groups run Laguna's biggest attraction: the stunning landscapes. Save for a few temples and shrines, the natural beauty of the region is what shines -- it might as well be one big botanical garden! The whole family will enjoy a biking or kayaking tour, while the more adventurous will jump off the falls into the crystal clear waters below. Heading back toward Manilla, the kids may beg for a pitstop at the Enchanted Kingdom theme park, while adults will be more into the nightlife scene awaiting them in the capital city.

No one will judge if the only thing you pack is a swimsuit

Laguna is mostly dry from November through April, when the rains begin. From May, the wet seasons lasts for the remaining six months of the year, and can be downright torrential. The weather is definitely tropical -- hot and humid, and with little to no variation in temperature throughout the year. The upside is: you can pack light, and basically live in your swimsuit from the time you step off the plane until you sadly wave goodbye to the province.

So much beauty, it borders on sensory overload

Situated on the southern shores of Laguna de Bay, Laguna overlooks the largest lake in the country. Mount Banahaw, an active volcano, borders the opposite end of the province, with 23 other volcanoes, many inactive, scattered throughout. Because of its proximity to Laguna de Bay, Laguna also plays host to a number of rivers and waterfalls cascading over caves. The lands of Laguna are lush and green, with tons of wildlife and hundreds of species of birds to be found. Opt for a Laguna vacation rental with a view, because you won't want to peel your eyes away from this.
