Explore the Philippines' distinct culture and heritage at Villa Escudero Plantations. During your tour of the vast 2,000 acres (800 ha) of the plantations, ride aboard a carabao (native water buffalo) before you visit the plantation’s museum and have lunch at the waterfalls.
Relax as you roam through the countryside to the Villa Escudero Plantation, a quaint, popular villa showcasing the agricultural history and culture of the Philippines. After you climb aboard a traditional carabao cart, your guide shares the history of this exquisite coconut plantation and a local band plays.
At the plantation’s museum, see the Escudero family’s historic artifacts, antique furniture, and World War II relics. Break for a delicious buffet lunch with the cascading Labasin Dam waterfalls in the background, then stroll through the villa or swim in the spring-fed pools.
The sample buffet lunch menu includes chicken tanola soup, vegetable salad and a choice of roasted chicken, beef calderata, grilled tilapia and pork barbecue and a lovely dessert.
