Holidays are fun, especially to us who always takes it to another adventure! 😂
And this time we decided to invade BUCARI!
Bucari is a tourist attraction at Leon Iloilo, A beautiful area surrounded with gigantic pine trees and mountainous terrain.
In Iloilo it is known also as Little Baguio, tourist kept on coming because it is not only just for attraction but it is also considered as one of the best sources of agricultural products producing the freshest and healthiest fruits and vegetables in Iloilo, Western Visayas Philippines.
So Here’s the Itinerary;
🕖 7:00am assembly time at Jaro Iloilo Market
📍Jaro Market-take a van going to Leon Iloilo at 50php each
🕖7:40am to 8:30am travel time=about 45mins
📍Leon Town proper, since we arrived early we were able to ride the jeepney going to Bucari and it only cost us 40 php each vs taking the motorcycle it would cost 250 php each just one way (saving tips😉) but motorcycle ride would be a convenient and time saving strategy because they can customize the itinerary they offer to stop over some other tourist sites.
🕖9-00am to 9:45am travel time=about 45mins, and because the jeepney is already full, we took the risk of ridding it at the roof top ~it’s more fun in the Philippines eh.
📍Bucari Leon Camp site – Pine trees area, entrance fee is 30 php each, their cottages cost 300-400 php depending on size, since we we’re saving we didn’t avail any cottage we just had our picnic on their green grounds with our packed brunch.
🏕for those who are planning for an overnight stay they also offer tent for rent that cost 300php good for 2-4persons or if you bring your own tent they would only charge you 100php.
🌲 after roaming around a little at the camping site, we ate our brunch first to gain energy ~ so that we may be able to climb the higher area with the greatest view of all 🥰
😅 all the sweat and knee pain was all worth it, on our way to the top at the side of the steps there were Man made station of the cross shed’s, few have pictures too.
⛰ you’ll forget the hard and sweating climb, because reaching at the top seeing this breathtaking view with amazing strong and fresh air.
📸 and these are some of the areas ~ best for instagram posting! 😉
🕖 at around 2pm we decided to drop by the famous Pine Ridge Cafe, with entrance fee of 100php complementary coffee or juice and some pastries depending on their menu of the day.
💕 before heading there, I first talked to the jeepney driver if what time would be the last trip going to town proper, surprisingly he answered 3pm so we asked if it would be okay for them to pick us up there. Luckily they agreed. 😇
📍From Camp Site Bucari to Pine Ridge it was about 15min ride of motorcycle that cost us 50php each.

📍Leon town proper we rode jeepney going back again to Jaro Market 45mins-1 hour depending on traffic. Cost us 50php each.
