Experience the country life in the Philippines and Laguna's cultural heritage with an unforgettable day tour at a former sugarcane plantation, the Villa Escudero Plantations and Resort! Conveniently located at KM 91, Tiaong, Quezon near Manila, this summer destination has a worldwide reputation of being the center for Philippine culture and history, becoming one of the popular tourist attractions in San Pablo City.
Founded by Don Placido Escudero and his wife Dona Claudia Marasigan in the 1880s, Villa Escudero was originally planted to sugarcane but was converted to a self-contained working coconut plantation by their son Don Arsenio Escudero in the early 1900s. As a pioneering agro-industrialist, he also put up the first working hydroelectric plant in the Philippines to supply his dessicated coconut factory. You can learn more about its sweet history as your English-speaking travel guide takes you around.
Upon arriving at Villa Escudero Resort, a refreshing welcome drink will be handed to prepare you for the upcoming adventure around the coconut plantation.
