It's Leisure Fun at Garin Farm

Garin Farm Inland Resort is a haven of activities in San Joaquin, Iloilo. Supposedly, it's only in its soft opening but given the amount of visitors, we heard that they won't have a Grand Opening for it anymore and just operate as usual.

Garin Farm offers three distinct activities: Leisure, Agriculture and Pilgrimage. Now, let me talk about some of the leisure activities there.

the gate, you pay jeepneys an extra P10/each if you want them to bring you there because it's really out of the way

choose your activity: fish in this 5,000 sq. m. lagoon, go riding a boat or a kayak or ride a horse on the islet near it; pedal boat rent is P60/2 pax; kayak is P90 and rubber boat is P120/4 pax... all for 30 minutes

horseback riding costs P60 for two rounds

300-meter zipline costs P250 (sitting) and P350 (superman)

rent an ATV (P200 for 30 minutes) or Golf Cart (P60)

watch doves/pigeons being fed at noon just outside the pavillion

dine in a naturally-ventilated restaurant (the entire restaurant has screens for walls so you enjoy the breeze fromt this hilltop location as well as view of the farm)

 weirdly enough, it was their veggie dishes that we didn't like, we loved the pansit, chicken and fish dishes we ordered :)

buy pasalubong at the store outside the pavillion

stay in their well-apportioned rooms

They also offer swimming on a pool just below the rooms for P80/person. I imagine that the resort can also be biker's dream so locals might want to call ahead and seek permission from the resort to go biking there. I also think the resort might want to rent out bikes since guests might want to bike to the cross instead.  Maybe an area for bike racks can be added where you rent out ATVs and Gold Carts near the pavillion.
