Canyon, rapids and falls

Laguna is one of the provinces in Southern Luzon's island, not far from Metro Manila. They are part of this province: Calamba, the birthplace of Jose Rizal the national hero; Los Baños, which lies at the foot of Mount Mariang Makiling, is the country of art and natural spas; Sta Cruz the capital of this province and finally Pagsanjan, the destination most frequently visited of the region, famous for its waterfalls and rapids. It 'was the natural sound stage of "Apocalypse Now" the masterpiece of Francis Ford Coppola with actor Marlon Brando.

Once in Pagsanjan, the journey begins in marked trip adventure: aboard a "bank", its "bancheros" there They will lead to the waterfall through a high and grand canyon, going back several beautiful rapids, the rest it is all a surprise.


The countryside's tour often becomes longer than 8 hours because of the traffic, there will be, perhaps toilet stop in both way.
