Caliraya With the Superfriends

Superfriends, that what we call our unit. Holy Week break being the only days that we actually close shop, we grabbed the opportunity to bond as a unit and spend an overnight stay at Caliraya Resort Club,Inc. in Lumban, Laguna. I think the guys deserve the much-needed break. 
I have been in Caliraya before but with husband and Sophie but this time it's a trip with the officemates. It had improved so much since I last came in 2008. There are so many additional amenities, there is even a new building in finishing stage. The lake resort is 110 kms. from Manila, approximately 3 hrs. away. 

Here are some photos taken during the trip:
Inside our nice room. The cottage may accommodate 13-15 pax. They have smaller cottages which can accommodate
10-12 pax. The only downside, the drainage of the showers.

Resort rate depends on the size of the group. We got our package for 1,500/head inclusive of the ff:

·             Entrance fee inclusive of boat ride (approximately 2-3 minutes)
·             Jeepney transfer inside the resort

Ana and I before before being geared up for the Zip Line ride
yours truly before the inevitable. This is scary only if you're a first timer. It's not as scary  when you're in flight
This is officially my fave activity in Caliraya: Zip Line!
the whole gang on the hanging bridge. below that is the fishing area

Charades and Pinoy Henyo are serious matters

Pinoy Slide is fun but you have to really hold on tight! 

buffet breakfast the morning after

the horses are oblivious of people coming and going. they're obviously accustomed to being  around people.
this is scarier that it looks. One of our most memorable ride ever, The Mud Slide!

the horses are resting. the sun is high
canoe ride: P250 per hour
this is officially our scariest activity so far. The canoe was so unstable because of the wind.
at the end of the hanging bridge
a friend tried to spin while on harness. Cool! I did not try this one as I had leg cramps I think from the cool weather and too much activity :) Bungee, P80 per 3-minute use
Zorb ball
A visit to the prayer room before we headed back home

Bye Caliraya! I'll be back :)
