The year is about to end and I still haven’t finished writing about Lakbay Norte 3, the 8-day media tour of the Northern Philippines. Aside from all the activities, the restaurants we ate in and hotels we stayed in played a huge part in making the trip so great.
A day of toploading, whitewater rafting and bridge hunting can make any traveler crave for a soft bed to curl up on at the end of the day. Luckily, the Lakbay Norte team has the Las Palmas Hotel as the sponsor for the team’s second night of the Northern Luzon tour/
Tuguegarao is one of the key cities in the Cagayan Valley Region. It can also be a base for the famous Callao Caves or a transit city for Palaui Island. Recently, I had the privilege to be billeted at one of Tugegarao’s finest hotels, Las Palmas de San Jose.
After an exhilarating experience at Kalinga White Water River Rafting, we traveled for an hour down to Tuguegarao City. It was my second time to visit Cagayan Province. The first time was when I backpacked around Northern Luzon two years ago.
