Summer is fast
approaching. Beat the summer heat, go for a cool dip in your favorite water
resorts and indulge yourself in group fun with your family and friends.
We enjoyed the cool water and the thrill of the tall
snaking rides at the Splash Island Resort in Laguna. If you are looking for
adrenalin rush, want to escape the summer heat or simply aching for a reprieve
from the hustle and bustle of city living, this is the place for you to visit.
We usually go out in leisure trip with our family. It is fun to have such outings with the family: besides lazily floating in rubber boats along the current of a man made creek like waterway curving around the resort, you will also be challenged by a huge multi-wave swimming pool and a hovering zip line above.
The place is vibrant and busy with kids in a hurry to the next open ride while others choose to stay in huts or under the shade of trees chatting and eating. Many people are falling in line waiting for their turn at various water rides. When their turn is reached the resort assistant guides them to the mouth of the tube and after a short push, the rubber boat will be shuttling down inside the water tube with a loud shriek from the excited riders. You cannot bring your food or bottled water with you but there are plenty of food kiosks with their own food specialty; and native huts where you can rest and eat. Splash Island Resort is a 30-45 minute drive from Manila. A day well spent!
