Majayjay

1,000 feet above sea level and located at the foot of Mount Banahaw, Majayjay, Laguna is an adventure waiting to happen. With a small population of 26,000 people and with a 4th class municipality standing, Majayjay has that rural and rustic feel.

If you want to have a little escape from urban life, going up to Majayjay just might be the best decision you’ll make. In the town you can find natural wonders like the Taytay Falls, its cascading falling waters are as high as two storeys (6 meters), that’s definitely a sight to behold, right?

Fun fact, locals also call it the Imelda Falls because back during the Martial Law era, the first lady pushed for the tourism in this area.

A place you can stay in is the Dalitiwan Resort, it has several amenities for the convenience and the comfort of its guests. Its facilities include a pool and a man made waterfalls, which is very beautiful and relaxing. But that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t explore the rest of the town! Dalitiwan Resort assures you that you will be able to make the most out of your trip. Another resort you can stay in is the Carayan Resort, a quiet and peaceful resort, which is an ideal place to stay for a lowkey trip.

Other places of interest include the Costales Nature Farm, where agriculture enthusiasts come to visit to study and know about their unique agriculture procedures.

And of course, you shouldn’t leave Majayjay without visiting one of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in the country. The Saint Gregory the Great Parish Church was built in 1575 during the early years of the Spanish colonial rule. Inside the church stand many statues of saints that date back to the late 1600’s brought along by the Spanish with their goal of Christianizing the Philippines. The church still stands firm and grand. When you climb up the roof of the church, you’ll see a breathtaking view of the Laguna de Bay.

Before leaving the town, you must look for coconut arrack, most commonly known as the Lambanog. Popular in the Philippines, this coconut wine is a local drink that you have to taste. It is native to Laguna so only people from here really know how to make the best kind.

Majayjay maybe small but it has so much it can offer you.
