Travel Itinerary 101 : Baler

Aug 3, 2016 | #ELfoodspotting, EAT!, LOVE!, PRAY!, TRAVEL!

 

After I gave birth last year, this is our first trip without our baby (toddler now). Parenting is a tough job, and it was a good idea to have some couple time again even just for three days.  And so I created a super chillax itinerary for first time travelers going to Baler.

This is our Baler itinerary :

DAY1
6:00 AM ETD Manila
12:00 PM ETA Baler
Check-in at Bay’s Inn (P1,600.00 per night with breakfast buffet)
Lunch at Yellow Fin Bar and Grill
Nap time
4:00 PM Surfing lesson (P300.00/hr with surfboard)
6:00 PM Dinner at Yolly’s Ihaw-Ihaw & Seafood Restaurant
9:00 PM cold beer on a BEERnes night! Hungry Surfer at Bay’s Inn
DAY2
7:00 AM Buffet Breakfast! Hungry Surfer at Bay’s Inn
8:00 AM Baler Day Tour  (Tricycle tour : P800.00)
Balete Park (Entrance fee : P10.00)
Ditumabo Falls also known as Mother falls (Entrance fee : P30.00)
Aniao Islets (Entrance Fee : P20.00 and Parking : P20.00)
Diguisit falls
Ermita Hill
1:00 PM Lunch at Blue Point Restaurant
Hanging Bridge (Parking : P10.00)
Town (Old Municipal Hall, Baler Church)
Nap Time
5:00 PM Surfing (P200.00 surfingboard only)
6:00 PM Dinner at Baler Surfer Grill
8:00 PM In-house Massage service in our room (P350.00)
DAY3
7:00 AM Buffet Breakfast! Hungry Surfer at Bay’s Inn
Morning walk at the Sabang Beach shore
9:00 AM Bought Dulce de leche & Brazo de Mercedes pasalubong at Dialyn’s Bakeshop
10:00 AM Museo de Baler and Aurora House (Entrance Fee : P10.00)
Buy more pasalubong in Baler Pasalubong Center
11:00AM Early Lunch at Kusina Luntian
12:00 PM Check-out at Bay’s Inn

 

Travel Notes :

  •  Museo de Baler & Aurora House, Old Municipal Hall and Baler Church are within the town. You can easily dropped by before leaving Baler. On our itinerary, we just went to Museo de Baler and Aurora House on the next day due to no electricity within the city.
  •  Local Surf Instructors offers low prices near the shoreline.
    • Look for Jeff – 09462924674; he is a local surfer and his team is offering town tour as well. I highly recommend Che Che, he is a witty & funny surfer  / town tour guide.
  • If you are a budget-traveler, rolling stores are located in Baler town. The price ranges are a lot cheaper.
  • Baler wooden souvenirs are cheaper on the road off to Baler.
  • There are a lot of tourists during weekends and holidays.

    Baler is not on my bucket list because I don’t know how to surf but I enjoy seeing photos of Baler especially the historical spots.

      True mommy, there are a lot of beautiful places to go and explore aside from surfing 🙂

    We haven’t decided yet where to go next summer but your Baler itinerary sounds awesome! Might as well add this to our list of possible destinations. Thanks!

    Oh my! I need some couple time. 🙁 This is a great idea. I have never tried going to Baler yet at ang mura na rin ng accommodation ha.

      Super nakakamiss si baby mommy, nagdala pa ako ng isang unan niya for our travel. Hehe! And yes, we also need some couple time once in a while 🙂

    Hubby really wants to go in Baler, kaya lang we feel guilty leaving our little kulit at home. Your itinerary is well planned

    I haven’t been to Baler but we had plans in the past. Since we are in tight budget, we have no out-of-town plans yet. If there’s an opportunity, i would love to go and visit Baler.

    I’m not a water sports kind of person as I’m actually scared of the water haha. I suppose I’d go to Baler only to take scenic photos. 😀

    Love the last photo! Questions though: would it have been really hassle if you brought your kiddo? And was it a road trip?

    Reply
    • mrsEnerodiaries

      It was a roadtrip mommy. 5-6 hours going to Baler, I suggest to bring your kids like 4-5 years old na. (And bring more foods and toys) hehe…

      Thank you mommy, my blog is more on a photo blog. I’m not into long stories type – writer. Although, will dig into details on a separate post for readers to see that to expect to Baler 🙂

    We always travel as a family- and we’ve never been to a beach trip. Is Baler child-friendly?:)

    • mrsEnerodiaries

      Hi mommy, yes! On our Baler trip, (to my surprise) I saw many kids enjoying Baler. The beach and other parents together with their kids were trekking to the mother falls as well. Although it was a long roadtrip 🙂 Will post details on a separate blog post 🙂

    That was a very nice experience with your husband. Do it as often as you can kasi it strengthens the bond talaga of couples. When my kids are still babies, we usually sneak out to jog, go to church together or basta makaalis lang. Ngayon we can do that more often na din and my husband and I have been closer than ever.

    I went to Baler when I just learned that I’m pregnant. Kaya I just slept the whole time I was there and ate at Gerry Shan? restaurant.
