Here is one really late post. Couldn't believe this happened a couple of months ago already, as the adventures still stay fresh to me. This is my Inang and I's post birthday celebration with our family at the Pugo Adventure Resort (PugAd) in Pugo, La Union last August 7.
Heard so many positive reviews about this particular resort so our family decided to go, since it's just a-little-more-than-an-hour-travel away from our home. It is not just a resort for swimming, as they also offer ziplines ATVs and wall climbing. Their pools, the normal - they have several pools which cater the kids and the adults, and the 5-12 ft. deep swimmer's pool.
An advantage of the resort though is that it brings you closer to nature. Compared to other resorts which are situated in a wide-empty lot, with no other backgrounds but the man-made landscapes, this resort has the mountain at its background. You'll simply fall in love with nature as the trees of the mountains refreshes your eyes. You'll love hearing the raging waters from the river, which you have to cross through the hanging bridge.
Also, they have their own aviary inside the resort, where you can find some cute (not sure if they're endangered) birds, and snakes.
Then, the fun and adventure with your loved ones. Well, thanks to Inang's watch which she accidentally dropped into the river while passing through the hanging bridge, our outing had become more exciting and more adventure-filled. It could've been an ordinary family outing had we just stayed at the 'usual' pool. The resort's admin told us that we were the first ones to try and enjoy the river's raging water and large rocks.
'Twas indeed one of the best adventure/birthday celebration I've had!
Let these photos speak:
