When I got pregnant, I knew that my itchy wandering feet will come to a halt once baby is born. Well, I cheated once last month when Jeff and I went to Hong Kong but that’s because our promo tickets from Cebu Pacific are non-refundable and non-rebookable. But after that, I promised Gwen that I won’t leave her anymore. In case we have to travel, I have to take Gwen with me.
Since it’s summer time once again, everybody is planning for their beach destinations. If we’re still childless, we would have planned to go to a secluded island with long travel time. But with baby around, it will be different. I just want a simple getaway in a nearby beach resort probably 2 to 3 hours drive from Manila. I don’t want Gwen to be uncomfortable to bumpy plane rides, I’ve heard infants cry inside the plane in the past.
One perfect beach resort will be Acuatico Beach Resort in Laiya, San Juan, Batangas. Just looking at the site spells S-U-M-M-E-R!
I can’t believe that there’s a place as beautiful as this in the Philippines, and it’s just in Batangas. The only deterrent is their rates, the cheapest room, Infinity Room, is already Php 6,300 per night. Quite expensive, if only we’re that well-off and have gold bars in our vaults, I would have booked the most expensive room right away. Philippines has many beaches, I’m sure I can find a beach resort perfect for our first family summer getaway.
