Laguna: Bato Springs

Located on the outskirts of San Pablo City in the province of Laguna, Bato Springs is the perfect getaway near Manila on a hot summer day. 

Prior to my visit, I have only seen the sign of this spring every time we head to southern Luzon. I have never thought of googling it or asking about it because it always slips my mind. (promise) If not for my cousin's birthday, I would have missed the chance of visiting it FOREVER. (Ok that's overacting on my part.) 
Join the herd...
...or swim in small groups.
Bato Springs is an unpopularly popular tourist destination. How's that you might ask. 
Make sure you bring your friends or family members
The more the merrier
Thanks to the locals we managed to reach the resort after several minutes of being lost.
The water's cold you'd enjoy it on a hot summer day!
Swim through different tiers of springs...
...or rest in one of the rental kubos...
...or simply enjoy the outdoors...
Speaking of locals, Bato Springs is so popular that once you reach the springs you'd be shocked to see that there are hundreds of them in the water. (Much like a scene in a water hole in Safari.)
WE love the pool
The source of the pool's water
What I like most about Bato Springs is its cold waters. (Not suitable for drinking though.) Aside from that, I also like the ambiance of the place. Despite the number of people and the springs being renovated for safety purposes. (Short of saying it's man made-ish) Bato Springs still never failed to bring out my love for nature. So let me invite you and your friends to enjoy the cold spring waters of Bato Springs.
Bonding time!

Getting There:

If you're bringing your own car, it would very much be a challenge locating the place if it's your first time. So here are some tips that might help you on your journey:
Look for that sign!
  1. Don't go in the town proper of San Pablo City. Use the diversion road instead. It will save you a lot of time and gas. 
  2. After passing through the diversion road, drive straight a few more kilometers and look for Meralco building at the driver side. (If you're coming from Manila) It serves as the nearest landmark. 
  3. Once you spot the building, slow down and look for the Bato Springs sign also located on the driver side.
  4. Once you see the sign, turn left and follow the road for another several kilometers until you see the second Bato Springs sign. 
  5. Follow the road being directed by the second sign until you reach the springs.
If you're commuting, ask the conductor if they know Bato Springs in San Pablo City.

If they do, then you're in luck. They will drop you off at the first Bato Springs sign. From there ride a tricycle which will take you to the second sign. You could also ride a jeepney heading to Dolores, Quezon. You may choose to ride another tricycle to bring you to the springs or just simply walk the rest of the way. 

If they don't, then ask the conductor to drop you off at San Pablo City town proper. From there ride a jeepney heading to Dolores, Quezon. Board down at the second sign. From there you may choose to ride a tricycle to the springs or walk the rest of the way.

  11. Ask ko rin po kung saan po ang malapit na sakayan mula po sa imus? Salamat po

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. From Imus?
      Hmmm. Ang alam kong pinakamalapit eh sa Starmall Alabang. Unless may mga van or buses na diyan na papuntang Lucena pero I doubt meron.

      Punta ka sa The District, sakay kayo ng papuntang Alabang.

      If wala multicab to SM Molino then transfer the van or multicab to Starmall Alabang.

How much po kaya between the two? 3. Saan po bababa? sa may papuntang Dolores, Quezon din po? and last 4. paano po pag uwian na? saan po may malapit papuntang alabang? Thank you very much

    1. 1. Bus is usually cheaper but vans are faster. Sakay ka ng Lucena bound. Tapos tell the conductor to drop you off the papuntang Dolores.
      2. Yung bus naglalaro sa 130 -150 vans mga halos ganun din.
      3. Paguwian na sakay ka ng Jeep o trike papunta ng Highway. May mga buses na dun papuntang Alabang.

    1. Hi sir. Saan po sa Batangas kayo magmumula. If makakadaan kayo sa National Highway madali lang po makapunta dito. Yung mga bus to Lucena po and Bicol eh dumadaan po sa San Pablo City.

      From there masusundan niyo na po yung Getting there section ng article ko.
