Postcards from Aleman Falls + Glamping at Dinadiawan Beach
An 8-hour drive from Manila, and countless stopovers along the roads heading to Dipaculao, Aurora felt like an escape.
You can get from Manila to Baler via a bus (check Cubao Bus Terminal – Genesis Transport). But it is still comfortable to go on a private car.
It rained during our 2-night stay but the tents have covers (like Nipa Hut) to keep us dry (but you must also check your stuff).
We visited the nearby falls in Dipaculao, Aurora – the Aleman Falls. It is just a 10-minute drive from Sun and Star Resorts, but be prepared for a an hour trek in the woods, crossing rivers and slippery rocks. My friend promised a 5-minute walk but I think he was referring to Panindingan Falls Dipaculao Aurora.
There is no clear signages and trail, and I thought we were already lost until I heard the falls.
The Aleman Falls is an interesting treasure in the middle of the forest. It has fine beige sand, and its water drops felt like hydro-massage. It was a nice “shower” on a hot sunny day.
