my antipolo trip : what to do in Antipolo

In  1579, Franciscan missionaries Christianize the Dumagats natives in what is
now known as Antipolo. whose name originated from a Tipolo tree which are

very abundant back in those days. at that time, the virgin forest of Antipolo
covered most of its mountain ranges with various tropical trees and wild life.
many springs supports several waterfalls, the most popular of which is the
Hinulugan Taktak. it was declared a national historical shrine under republic Act 6964

Aside from the antipolo cathedral, the hinilugang taktak falls is the 2nd most visited
place in the east. Other tourist sites are Mystical Cave, Pinto Art Museum, and
Luljetta Hanging Springs. also you can  hangout at Cloud 9 and
Sierra Madre Hotel 30kms away from Antipolo.

I've heared the the term hinilugang taktak 35 yrs ago, during my childhood days
and this is my first time to visit.

To my surprise entrance is free for this nature park
then  food / drinks are allowed but dont touch nature, do not litter.

I've already written  a story about the PINTO ART MUSEUM in Antipolo,
this time me and my friends went back again. to explore other places we
failed to check out because time flies so fast then.

One of the most famous attractions east of Metro Manila, located in the hills of
San Isidro, Antipolo City. 30 minutes away from Ortigas is the CASA SANTA
its located at Jardin de Miramar.

a big venue place for events, more than 2 hectares of lot with trees and plants,
it can be considered as one of the biggest, all it lacks is a zoo and a fish pond
and One of the attraction is the collection of over a thousand Christmas themes
with santa clause from all over the world.

here you could see and count all the Santa Claus themed items and motifs from
all over the world.  a joyous sight for kids at heart to see even after christmas
you could still here Christmas songs, and santa claus lives forever in this museum.

you missed this last christmas? dont worry, its open to the public Christmas or not.
for a P180 pesos for the entrance fee but 3 yrs old and below is free.
