Celebrating Valentine's Day at PUGAD Pugo Adventure

It was Valentine's Day yesterday when we went to PUGAD Pugo Adventure. Hubby and I went there with my 2 siblings and their families using the van of my brother-in-law because our car can't accommodate us all . It was an hour drive from where we live. It is situated in Sitio Kagaling, Palina, Pugo, La Union. When we reached the place we went to the information area and learned that that's where we gonna pay the entrance fee. At first I thought that my 2 nieces will be charged free because they're shorty 3 and 4 year old kids but they exceeded the allowed measurement height which is 2 feet below. Kids who are three feet and above are charged Php100 each. The entrance fee for adults is Php150 each. Their nipa hut cottage cost Php500 which is good for 10 people. The attendant gave us a cottage located beyond the hanging bridge because she said the view their is a lot better.

After paying, my 2 brothers went back to the van to get our foods that we brought. I cooked beef adobo and pinakbet. We brought ripe mangoes too for our desert and we bought two 1.5 liters C2 drinks at the grocery store which we passed by on our way. When we were inside, we decided to stay in a cottage before the hanging bridge because my brothers said it's not easy to haul our foods crossing the hanging bridge. So we let the attendant know the cottage we chose and we stayed there and ate our foods. The foods that I cooked were so yummy or maybe we were just hungry, lol! In fairness, my sis-in-law said my pinakbet was very good. We ate to our hearts' delight and we were inspired by the scenic view around us.

While we were eating, a lot of adventurers riding the zip line passed by above us. I wish I'm still young and have their courage to do it. I bet it would be fun. A lot of thrill seekers go to Pugad just to avail their zip line, rapelling and wall climbing. But for us, we went there to see the scenic view, have a picnic and swim in their pool. After we ate, we decided to go across the hanging bridge and see what was in there. It has more cottages there and 3 swimming pools. Their function room is located their and also their aviary. The kiddie pool there is bigger than the one in front. We decided to swim there at the kiddie pool with my 2 nieces. I asked my brothers to go back to our cottage to get our swimming clothes.

Then we went to change in the shower room and after that, off we went to the kiddie pool. At first I was hesitant to go to the water because it was cold to me but slowly I went in and after a few minutes my body got used to the water and started to enjoy. I admit, I don't know how to swim, I just wade in the pool and made a big splash with my hands once in a while, lol! Hubby knows how to swim with dog paddle style. My 2 sis-in-law didn't swim because they don't feel like it. Vivian has her monthly period and Marlyn had a headache. So they were the ones taking our photos. The 2 kids were having a good time in the pool especially when the fountain showers around the pool were all turned on. Even hubby and I enjoyed it. Vernice asked her dad if it's raining, lol! One thing I like about their swimming pool is that it's either has a little chlorine or no chlorine at all. All their pools were very clean and life guards were present. When we got tired swimming, we got out of the pool and went to the shower room to wash and changed our wet clothes.

Then hubby and I went to roam around and took pics at the aviary. Then we crossed the hanging bridge again and went back to our cottage. We ate some again and after that I went around with my 2 nieces and had our pics taken by my youngest brother. Hubby stayed in the cottage. I really love the view in Pugad, so serene, calm and relaxing. If you love nature and adventure at the same time, then Pugad is the place to go.

wow, I would like to go there someday! I would try all the activities there including the zipline. Actually, I like La Union, esp its beaches.

You've got nice photos here, Lisa. Take care!
