Pinlac Falls in Infanta Quezon

As far as I can remember, the last waterfall that we have visited in the Philippines is Taytay Falls or Imelda Falls, and it’s been almost a decade already. Taytay Falls was too crowded and you cannot enjoy swimming kasi halos hindi ka makalangoy sa dami ng tao. Lulubog ka lang talaga. But I suddenly missed those days when we had a staycation in my late grandmother’s house in Victoria, Laguna, and explore the nearby tourist spots.  


Moving on, just this month, we had a chance to visit another falls in the Philippines and so far this is the 7th waterfalls that I have visited in the country. We had a quick getaway at Gina’s Garden and Farm in Real Quezon and the owner suggested visiting Pinlac Falls. Actually, there are other falls that you can visit, you can see those falls on your way to Pinlac Falls but we chose Pinlac since this is a tourist spot in Infanta Quezon.



The Falls is more or less 15 minutes drive from Gina’s Garden and Farm and you won’t miss the place because there is a sign of Pinlac Falls where you will turn right. There is a parking lot and I was glad that no longer walking or trekking just to reach the waterfalls. We paid PHP30 for the entrance fee.

You can bring your own food because there are tables and chairs where you can stay. There is also a sari-sari store where you can buy foods or drinks. Unfortunately, there is no vacant space where I could stay so I just sat near the falls while waiting for my husband, son, and brother-in-law. The owner said na may limit lang daw ng number of guests per day so we’re lucky na nakapasok pa kami. 


The last waterfall that I’ve visited is Gullfoss in Iceland so when I saw Pinlac falls, naliitan ako. But to be honest I still felt happy to see the waterfalls, ito yung isa sa epekto ng pandemic. You will learn to appreciate even the small things. I was so glad because, after more than a year of being stuck at home, we had the privilege to have this nature trip. 







Though we did not stay long, I think 30 minutes lang kami nagstay. Nanginginig na kasi sa lamig mga kasama ko, lumubog din ako for few minutes para naman hindi sayang entrance fee ko. Hehehe! I am not sure if there is a comfort room because I did not bother to check. Since malapit lang naman yung accommodation namin, doon na kami naligo pagbalik.

    1. Hi, during our visit we only paid the entrance fee sa Pinlac Falls. Wala naman hinanap pero bago kami makarating ng Quezon, may two checkpoints kami na dinaanan, pinakita namin yung Guest Certificate namin from AirBnB.

      Pero pabago-bago kasi yung travel restrictions and requirements. For more information on OPEN DESTINATIONS IN QUEZON PROVINCE please visit the Facebook Page of Quezon Province.
