Bucket list: Climb a volcano and swim in it’s crater…. CHECK!
When In Manila, after taking a trip to the heart of a volcano and back, why not then relax with a massage, a hot ash body wrap and a thermal mud bath.
First of all, check out my post about my climb up Mt Pinatubo to bathe in her captivating crater lake here – https://www.wheninmanila.com/mt-pinatubo-crater-lake-day-trip-hike/
Now, after that half day ride up and down the lahar valleys, climb up to the peak of a volcano, swim in the chilled lake and trek back down, why not relax in a city aptly named: Spa Town.
Your journey towards Mt Pinatubo’s crater lake begins and ends in the quaint little place called Pinatubo Spa Town in Sta. Juliana Village of Capas, Tarlac. Here you’ll find a place to rest your weary feet and fill your empty stomachs, and best of all, a place to shower and freshen up!
I recommend you try out the Volcanic Ash Wrap and Thermal Mud Bath. Each supposedly enchanted with their own healing remedies. Along with those services, you can also get a massage at Pinatubo Spa Town. Each treatment costs P500, but you can get a bargain deal by getting all three treatments for just P1000.
The massage at Pinatubo Spa Town was perfect for tired muscles after the hike. There wasn’t really much that was unique about the massage, other than it being at the right place at the right time, after your climb up to Mt. Pinatubo.
I did enjoy the Volcanic Ash Wrap. It takes a little bit before you get used to it as they bury you neck deep in hot volcanic ash. This lahar, supposedly rich in sulfur and salt, is said to be a revitalizing session that can detoxify the skin and ease any aches and pains in the body.
Along with the hot volcanic ash on your body, you’ll get a hot towel on your forehead to fully emerge you in a thermal spa of tranquility. Be patient and feel your worries slowly melt away as the heat gets more comfortable with every deep breathe you take.
You’ll emerge from the ashes a new man! With new strength and energy to help you on your next adventure… back to Manila!
When In Manila, be sure to spend some time healing your body with natural volcanic minerals at the Pinatubo Spa Town, right after your trek up Mt Pinatubo. Try their massage, volcanic ash wrap and the thermal mud bath!
