  • With the easing of quarantine restrictions in different parts of the country, many parents are looking into going on much-awaited family trips. While we all deserve a break, we still need to be mindful of the safety protocols in place to help curb the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

    The solution? Visiting nearby provinces for a relaxing daytrip or a weekend respite.

Located less than three hours from Manila, this province has many must-visit stops and beaches the whole family can enjoy. The best part? It has its own fair share of dishes and delicacies that we’re sure everyone missed.

    To help you plan your family trip, we’ve collated five accommodations on Airbnb that offer not just scenic views, but interiors designed to give you and your family a relaxing stay. Before you book your stay, make sure you check with the hosts if they require proof of negative COVID-19 test results and vaccination cards.
