Team Kilo Goes To Punto Miguel (Laiya, Batangas) 11-16-2012

Today, November 16, 2012. My team, the new breed of Kilo goes to Laiya, Batangas for an overnight of fun and bonding at the beautiful beach resort of Punto Miguel at Bgy. Laiya Aplaya, San Juan Batangas.

It’s time to go out and think about ourselves and separate from the stressful work and be kids again, enjoying the beach and doing nothing but fun and of course each others company.

Then on Saturday November 17, 2012 it will be followed by Mt. Daguldol climb hosted by yours truly and the L.O.S.T. Team for an extended weekend get away for the love of great outdoors, hiking and mountaineering. 🙂

The Punto Miguel Beach Resort

Activities:

Fun-filled activities are aplenty and one is sure to keep the body energized. For the water sports enthusiasts, we have jetskis, banana boats and snorkels. Guests can also go diving, fishing, island hopping, hiking/trekking and camping. A team can enjoy some competitive but fun beach volleyball. For those who love nature, we have boats for hire for some sightseeing & snorkeling activities. For an evening of bonding, bonfire may be set-up. For those who just want to relax & soothe those tired muscles, a spa/massage would be the ideal option. Above all, the white sands beach can provide the young ones and the not so young ones a lot of fun.

    • Pede mo na daanan ang Naambon Falls pagbaba kasi on the way na lang siya sa trail. Please don’t stay at the store at the jump off kasi taga sila maningil doon ng wash up fee Php 70.00 / head is too much. Balik nalang kayo sa Hugom for clean up. Hehehe
