Riding the Waves in Laguna de Bay (Laguna Lake)

This post is related to the video I uploaded a few months earlier (see the YouTube video here). With all the stories and myths attached to it, who wouldn’t want to get on a boat and roam the water of Laguna de Bay or Laguna Lake?

For the boat ride, one simply has to go Paciano Rizal Park located in Los Baños, Laguna. Fee is 10 pesos if I remember it right but you can ask for discounts for children and senior citizens. The ride will take around 15 minutes and will cover several meters near the shores of Los Baños. I think the local government could further develop this type of local tourism but not to the point that those managing this activity will not be elbowed away. Promote local sites led by the locals!
