Pantabangan Traveller Tips:

When to Visit:

Pantabangan became popular during the height of the pandemic when the border restrictions are strict. That’s because most of the resorts mentioned above provide a relaxing getaway with plenty of fresh air and wide-open spaces.

I suggest that you visit the area during summer as the terrain going to some of these resorts is muddy. But if you dislike crowds, love adventure, or want to avail the rainy season rates, you can also visit the resorts after the summer.

Overnight Stay

Day tour entrance fees for most of these Pantabangan farms and tourist spots range from Php50 to Php200. Staying overnight (although, super worth it) is quite expensive. Room rates ranges Php 3,500 to 10,000 a night and some resorts don’t offer air conditioning.

If you love adventures, you can bring your own tent and camp at Montana Del Sol Farm for only 500 per head. Or you can glamp for Php 2,000 a night at Forest Garden or at Lake Farm de La Marre Agri-Tourism Park.

Luckily, if you’re not in the mood for camping, you can also book a room at Amakka Transient Inn for only Php 2,000.
