HOW TO GET TO SAN RAFAEL RIVER ADVENTURE: Technology made our travel easier! With the use of Waze Application, Ber, our driver was able to get the right track at the right time. Network coverage is available on the route, so no worries with your data connection. What's good about traveling to Bulacan? Let's remove the traffic, I think it's the relaxing green atmosphere everywhere, fresh air, and the fruit vendors selling ... ahhmmm... fruits? (napaka redundant no?) by the highway.

Our check in was 7PM but we arrived at around 5PM. So, we had a long tsimisan time. Upon arrival, thunderstorm hit San Rafael, so instead of walking and checking the amenities, like what we planned, we stayed at the reception and waited for more than two hours.  In fairness, their customer service is really good and the people are approachable and friendly. Check in time, from the reception area, we were guided by their attendant to our respective tents. Everything was reading, the tents were clean, the blankets and pillows smell like hotel - it's really a glamorous camping! Diba Beth?? #glamping

San Rafael River Adventure is at a perfect spot. The area is wide and is surrounded by flowers, grass, plants, bamboo, and trees creating a cool and relaxing atmosphere. The glamping tents are located by the river and are covered with nipa huts and bamboos for additional protection during sunny and rainy season. Cottages made up of bamboos, nipa and iron are available floating on Angat River.

One of the must try at San Rafael River Adventure is the floating swimming pool. It's an inflatable pool with clear water floating on Angat river. There are water activities like kayaking, paddle boarding, jet skiing, and many others. On this side, glamping with a twist seems to be interesting. Your tent is on a raft floating on the river.

San Rafael River Adventure, not fond though, has wildlife in the cage such as eagle, monkey and civet cat. I know that cage is not their natural home but I think they are properly maintained based on the appearance. The eagle keeps on singing, the monkey was busy eating banana and the two civet cats were busy playing on the branch while having their breakfast.

Another attraction here is an infinity pool (looks like) with the Angat river on the background. Unlike other resorts, this pool has a crystal clear, cool fresh water and doesn't have smell of chlorine. Its shape is also artistic and the tile colors are so appealing.
