A few months back, my friends and I randomly picked a resort and planned on going for a swim after hearing Sunday mass. We decided to try La Florentina Resort in Bustos, Bulacan after seeing some photos on Instagram and on their website.

Since summer is already here, I’d like to share some photos and a budget breakdown in case you’re on the lookout for a resort that won’t hurt your budget!


Committed to its tagline, “Where Nature Meets Fun”, La Florentina Resort boasts of its modern nature facilities where family and friends can unwind, relax, and enjoy. Covered with lush grass, accented by Hawaiian palm trees and over 100 sweet-smelling mango trees, this resort will definitely not disappoint you.


There are 100 nipa cottages, 12 relaxing villas to stay at, an Olympic size adult pool, a kiddie pool, colorful playground pool, and a playground.


Sample day tour budget for a group of 4:

> Transportation – P400 (do take note that we live in Bulacan, so this was all that we needed in order to go back and forth)

> Entrance Fee – P200

> Cottage – P600 (good for 8-10 pax)

> Food (for our snacks and dinner) – P1,000

TOTAL: P550 / person

Note: this, of course, will lessen according to how you guys plan to budget your food. We would always go all out on food hence the budget we had.
