Usually when I write about a destination it's because I want other people to go there too. Not this time. If at any, I beg you to not go to this falls, at least not on a weekend.
When my friends and I went there it looked like a scene in an evacuation center. Every inch of the place was covered with a human being. More humans more waste. The amount of the garbage that I saw was horrifying. There were people eating, people who pitched tents, people who were taking selfies, people who were enjoying a dip in the ice cold water of the falls, everywhere I looked there were people.
I tried to get closer to the waterfalls because it's the reason we went there anyway but even that part was filled with the crowd. I'm sure the falls is beautiful but it was hard to appreciate it when so many humans are obscuring the view.
I'm not sure what was going on, if there was a holiday of some sort that's why this amount of people went there. But I sure as hell didn't enjoy this trip. If I ever go back I will make it a point that it will never be on a weekend.
Majayjay Falls by the way has two other names, Taytay Falls and Imelda Falls. There is an entrance fee of 35.

Visited this place last January 9th with wifey Jenny V, my sister and my nephews. The place is around 3-hour drive from Manila. We were lucky to have someone who knows this place that's why we didn't have a hard time locating this. Upon entrance in th area, we paid some fees at the barangay, Php20 per head I think. Parking at the area is Php50. The walk/trail to the falls itself is around 15 minutes. You can opt to bring your own food or but from there and set a tent at designated areas should you wish to stay. The water from the falls was so clear not to mention it was pretty cold. I just hope this place will be maintained of its cleanliness. We have plans of coming back soon.

Bawat bagsak ay naglilikha ng panandalian kaligayahan sa mga taong nagiinit ang pakiramdam. Dulot mo ay isang di malilimutan pagraos sa panahong kay init. Lamig na nagyeyelo. Ganda mo ay di matutubasan.

Escaping the hustle and bustle of manila, my friends and I decided to embarked on a 3-hour journey to Laguna. It was just a chill trip; we have 0 expectations about the place and it wasn't all that planned out. We have our destination, some cash, and together with our GPS and maps, we decided to start our journey.
The trip on the way wasn't all that long. But some of the roads we passed by were narrow and small. And despite our GPS, we still got lost. I blame the non existent signs and poster. Haha
After a few twist and turns and asking strangers for directions, we finally arrived at the barangay hall where we paid 20/pax as the entrance fee. We noticed quite a large group of people around the area and was hoping that the falls wouldn't be too crowded. (Spoiler alert: it was crowded)
We parked our car in their parking lot and had to shell out 40 pesos for it. Following the footsteps of the ones who got there first, we walked through this thick, lush greenery. It was quite relaxing honestly. The birds were chirping, i hear distant sound of a stream and the "hike" wasn't that hard. Don't worry if you're not up for the "hike" because it really wasn't a hike. The pathway was paved cement all through out and there were hand rails for safety.
I noticed a lot of tents at the river bank and it was making me a little sad. Especially when I saw food wrappers around the area :( I feel like they're not that responsible with their waste. Huhu
After 15-20min, we arrived at the falls.
And It was beautiful. I love it when the sun hits the water and it twinkles into a blinding light. It just looks so enchanting.
I dipped my toes in the water just to know how it would feel like and as expected, it was freezing cold. I know I haven't been to a lot of falls but, Its one of the coldest falls i've ever been in. I was contemplating whether to swim or not but after a few nudges from my friends, I decided to jump in. And I'm so glad i did!
There were a lot of people when we visited ( it was monday, mind you) but we didn't let that stop us from having a good time :) i would love to come back when its off season just so I could have this place all to myself :)
The changing area was quite far from the falls so I advise you to wear your swimsuits underneath your clothes so it would be easier for you
There were comfort rooms but it was quite far too, and due to high foot traffic, it was quite dirty and unmaintained. We decided to just change in our car and rinse off at home rather than to use the uber dirty and muddy comfort rooms ( I have a thing with dirty bathrooms)
If you have aqua shoes, use them. The basin's bed was full of pebbles in different sizes and it was quite slippery. Also, it was challenging for my 5"2 to swim near the falls. If you're not a very good swimmer, bring your own floaters /salbabida. It looks cute in photos and will help you navigate around the falls.

On the way to Lucban, we saw a sign saying 'this way to Taytay Falls', got curious, and decided to check it out after a google search of what it looks like. Haha.
Entrance fee is only Php20, while parking is Php40. It takes a 10 to 15-minute walk to the falls. Water is freezing cold, and surprisingly crystal clear, so you're assured of its cleanliness (somehow).
The sound of: birds chirping + water flowing through the rocks + leaves falling + trees swaying are all very relaxing. A dip in the water is rejuvenating. We stayed for just a bit but you can actually set up camp there and even stay overnight. There is also no prohibition on what food or drink to bring.
