We were a bit unprepared for this trip. We planned to be on the road at six in the morning, but it was almost seven when we left our Parañaque home. Aside from our personal stuff, we had a bag of chips, four bottles of soda, and sandwiches for breakfast. Itinerary includes dropping by our uncle's house (already in San Pablo) to fetch him and his daughter, buy lunch and some groceries somewhere.
We arrived at my uncle's around 9:45am, had a quick snack and washroom break. We left past 10am. Stopped by Andok's near St. Paul's Cathedral and bought grilled bangus and liempo, and rice. Then stopped by Puregold for ice, water and disposable utensils.
They said this place is usually packed especially during weekends and holidays; that there's queuing in the entrance and parking. Last Saturday however was kind of far from that - no waiting in the entrance and we still had a lot of parking spaces to choose from. But but but..going down we noticed that there were a lot of people. Lucky that we were still able to get a spot though a bit far from where the falls is.
Entrance is 80php per person. We were not asked to pay for the "spot"/table; not sure if there is really a fee for that, or just because my cousin's a friend of the owner (we were 10, and only five were charged for the entrance).
The water was really really cold, that we only spent a good an hour and a half in it. Heard that this place was originally a creek, and was just transformed to what it is now.
There were food stores around. Had kikiam and squid balls from one of the stalls. Sauce was not masarap. As in. Also had mais con yelo.
The place was beautiful, but I prefer Majayjay a lot more. Maybe because in Majayjay, we can set up our picnic session very near the water area. We can eat and drink while our feet are soaked in the water. Unlike here, we really need to get out of the water, and walk to our spot. I find Majayjay more chill and more fun.
P.S. We always bring our own trash bag/s for our kalats; we ensure proper waste disposal on trips, especially like this.

I celebrated my birthday here yesterday with my friends. We enjoyed our stay there even though the storm signal was #1. The ambiance was very nature friendly. Many trees around the man-made river/pool. The water was very cold and always cold in any season. I thought there were just few people since the weather's not so good. I was wrong though, security guard said there were still many people from overnight stay. I can recommend this to other people who loves water and adventure!
