How to get to Splash Mountain Resort in Los Banos, Laguna


This summer is my first summer that I really just need to relax. Since I resigned from my job so I am staying at home. And now I just realized how summer is super  hot in Manila. Lol that’s crazy I knew it was super hot but not this hot that I feel it’s more than 40 degree Celsius.


My sister said there is a nice resort just near Manila. I was reluctant because I am not really a fan of swimming pools. I am not comfortable with the swimming pools because of I am not sure how they treat the water, It might have  too many bacteria.


But since it’s too hot I agreed why not try the swimming pools in Laguna. We visited the Splash Mountain Resort. Its located in  Los Banos, Laguna.


We learned from its website that we just need to ride bus that is bound to Sta. Cruz, Laguna and it will pass by the Splash Mountain resort, where we can drop off. We took bus from South Station of  Alabang, Muntinlupa. The fare was 60.00 pesos per head. We asked the doctor to drop off us to the Splash Mountain Resort. And true to what its website says, the conductor did. It’s a well-known resort then.


When we were about to return to Manila, the buses wouldn’t stop even we flagged them so we had to go to Calamba City thru Jeep since there is a Bus station in that area. The jeep fare was 13.00 pesos per passenger. We rode the bus from Calamba City and the fare was 48.00 pesos per head till Alabang, Muntinlupa.



Public Transportation
Going to Los Baños is easy even if you don't have a car with you. For those who want to commute, you can ride a bus bound for Sta. Cruz, Laguna. This will pass by Los Baños, just tell the bus conductor to drop you off at Splash Mountain. The Splash, Suites and Oasis Hotels are all located at Splash Mountain resort complex.
If you are coming from Quezon City, aircon buses are available at Cubao, along EDSA corner Aurora Boulevard. HM Tranport leaves at 3:30 am daily from Cubao to Sta. Cruz via Los Baños and buses depart every 15 minutes until 10 pm. Going home from Los Baños, you can wait for buses bound for Cubao at the highway in front of Splash Mountain. The last trip for buses coming from Sta. Cruz is at 8:00 pm.
For those coming from Manila, aircon buses bound for Sta. Cruz are available at JAMand Tritran bus terminals at LRT station, Buendia. First trip is also at 3:30 am and buses also depart every 15 minutes.


Driving From Manila
We are located along the national highway at Km. 58, Brgy. Lalakay, Los Baños, Laguna approximately 10 km after the city of Calamba. It takes one hour drive to reach us from the Ninoy Aquino International Airport. Thru the South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) take the Calamba exit and drive towards Los Baños. Watch the road signs to Los Baños that will direct you to make a right in Calamba junction and upon reaching the busy Pansol resort area drive another 4 km. Splash Mountain is located on a curve immediately after two hills sandwiching the highway (we are after these hills on the left-hand side of the road). You won't miss the billboards, the huge facade and the spacious parking area to your left. Driving another 2 km. is the town proper of Los Baños where City of Springs is located. The University of the Philippines at Los Baños and IRRI are five kilometers after our resort.
