Have you been to La Union? Although La Union is popular for surfing, there’s a lot more you can do and discover. You can even just choose to simply chill by the beach and indulge on great food and coffee.
Check out what Ernest Talusan had to say about it:
Way back when people used to say La Union, the first thing to come in mind was San Juan Surf Resort or even Kahuna. Now it’s totally different, we have the famous Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel.
It was a Thursday when we departed Manila. Traffic was hell as usual but we managed to take the entire trip to La Union in 4 hours, thanks to SCTEX and TPLEX. We arrived in San Juan Surf Resort where we stayed and immediately took a long nap and wake up just before sun down to chill at Flotsam and Jetsam Hostel. We ordered their awesome pizza that paired with a more awesome salad. Musicians started playing as we lied down on one of their bean bags. It was getting pretty late so we decided to leave and call it a day.
The next day we took our breakfast at Coast Call Kitchen & Bar, overlooking the beach of San Juan. The waves weren’t that surf-friendly but that chill vibe was still there. We left then had some coffee at El Union Coffee, one of the chillest coffee spots I’ve been to.
Our main plan on going to La Union was because of Tangadan Falls but ever since we arrived it didn’t stop raining. Fortunately, on our third day, the weather cooperated with us so we got the chance to go to the falls. It took us an hour of trekking on wet, slippery, and sticky mud that made me slip here and there. Honestly, we didn’t expect it to be that spectacular but when you’re there in front of the falls, what a magnificent view! We jumped off the dive spots, cooled ourselves in the cold river water, and of course took a lot of photos and videos. It was all worth it, the sweat and the slip and slides. No regrets.
This is just one of my trips in La Union, it just gets better and better everytime we go there. So here’s a video I made on our trip, see it as I saw it through my eyes. My name is Ernest Talusan and I hope you’d enjoy the video too. Thanks!
