Alfonso

Located at the southwestern portion of Cavite province, the municipality of Alfonso rests upon high ground. This gives it the characteristically cool climate that CALABARZON (Region 4) is known for. This, coupled with its rich soils, makes for a landscape with diverse varieties of flowers and fruits.

Alfonso is easy to get to via the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX). The region’s proximity to Metro Manila also makes it highly accessible to locals who would like to get away from the city for a while.

One of Alfonso’s claims to fame is fire-walking: although popularized in the West as a magic trick, it is deemed a ritual in celebration of bountiful harvests.

A popular product from Alfonso is the chocolate that comes from their high-quality cocoa fruits. Chocolate here tends to come in “tablet” form, to be melted into a hot chocolate drink.

Alfonso has a selection of great events places, like Sonya’s Garden (at Buck Estate) — a lush, flora-filled venue often booked for weddings, with sprawling gardens, organic products and a spa. There is also Camp Benjamin, which offers numerous outdoor activities like swimming, zip lining, and wall climbing. You can also book a room at the Alfonso Hotel Farm, which has a horseback riding facility.
