Entering the Cagsawa Ruins

The turn to the Cagsawa Ruins was hard to miss. There was signs all over the place pointing towards it. From the main highway, it wasn’t too far to the ruins. You can tell this was the place since there are a few touristy shops here. I don’t think this is one of those places a lot of foreigners go to. It isn’t marketed as much as the famous beaches in the country. There are shops for renting all terrain vehicles here. The idea is you can drive it to the volcano. They even have a practice area beside it. I’m not too keen on activities like that. There aren’t a lot of eating places here surprisingly.

In the main complex itself. There is a large souvenir area. The top gift item would be pili nuts but I wasn’t planning to buy any yet. I would be here for a couple more days so there would be time for that. First order of business was a toilet. They did have a pay toilet here but it doesn’t seem to be something you would want to pay for. It didn’t even have flushing and you have to do it the old fashion way – bucket of water. I made my water to the ticket booth of the Cagsawa ruins and I saw that the volcano it still obscured by clouds. I jokingly said that it should be free entrance since you can’t see the volcano at all. The entrance fee was small anyway, I think I would be back here another day.
