Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar

This is what happens when you let a toddler take charge of the GoPro. Low angles, shaky footage and her own hilarious (and most of the time unintelligible) commentary. Get lost with Erin in Bataan!

This place has Instagram worthy spots everywhere you look.

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar is the brainchild of Architect Jerry Acuzar who also happens to be an art collector. Heritage houses are relocated to this site, restored to its former glory and shared with everyone to appreciate its beauty. For structures that cannot be relocated, replicating the houses or hotels would be the next option for the group behind this heritage park.

This open air museum conducts tours as well as cultural performances for its guests. A day tour would be more than enough to explore the area but if you decide to stay the night, you can sleep in one of the beautiful houses which is another experience altogether. Since we were only six in the group, we opted to stay in the one of the studios with loft which was quite spacious even with all six of us in the room.

When we went here in May 2015, the beachfront had no facilities such as comfort rooms, cabanas, etc. but it was still an experience for us, especially for the kids, as we crashed along the waves and almost got butt naked in the process. Yes, the waves were that strong and our bikinis weren't really the appropriate outfits. Rash guards are highly recommended!

Since you're in the area already, I suggest you schedule a trip to the Westnuk Beach in Morong. Our family considers it a must visit spot everytime we're in Bataan.
