Batangas Lakelands, an active lifestyle park in Balete, Batangas should be on top of your to-visit list whenever you feel like retreating to an exciting, far-from-the-usual-urban-jungle weekend with your family and friends.
Studies suggest that stress is relieved within minutes of exposure to nature as measured by muscle tension, blood pressure, and brain activity. On the other hand, time in green spaces significantly reduces cortisol, a stress hormone.
Definitely, outdoor activities boost the production of dopamine and endorphins which leads to a happier and therefore more productive lifestyle.
While going to the usual malls, restaurants, theaters, and other go-to weekend establishments are proven and effective ways of procrastination, there is no harm in trying atypical recreational activities like what Batangas Lakelands has to offer.
With their friends and family-oriented activities spread out in its 20-hectare open-air estate, kids and adults are certainly in for memorable experiences.
Outdoor activities including (unlimited) zipline, archery, target shooting, biking, and wall climbing are fun, adrenaline-filled ways to destress while scenic attractions like guided nature trails, sky bridge, love garden, and the lost lagoon are not only sure Instagram-worthy posts but are light cardio workouts as well.
Batangas Lakelands, a relatively new recreational establishment, still has a lot of offerings up its sleeve as more amenities and attractions such as Helitours, hotels, and swimming pools are in the making as they try to better embody their “stay and play” mantra.
Park hours are from 7:30 AM- 3:00 PM on weekends and selected holidays; entrance fees start at 400 pesos per person. Guests may also avail of the staycation package which includes an overnight stay at one of Lima Park Hotel’s Deluxe Rooms for as low as 3,000 pesos (good for 2 persons).
Batangas Lakelands has discounted rates for all Saturdays of September including the unlimited zipline for only 599 pesos per person.
