If you are coming from Manila, the Philippines capital, traveling short distances by road will already get you to some of the country’s prized destinations. One of them is Bataan province, a premium ecotourism and heritage site located in Central Luzon.

There are many beautiful attractions in Bataan, starting with the picturesque beaches of Morong, the beautiful churches of Samal (St. Catherine of Sienna Parish Church) and Balanga (St. Joseph Parish Church), and the historical heritage of Mount Samat National Shrine. You may also check out Limutan Falls if you are game for a hike that could last for up to two hours. However, the best experience in the province is visiting Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a 400-hectare attraction showcasing Filipino craftsmanship. It is a reconstructed 18th century Spanish-colonial village featuring cobbled streets, stilt houses, and ancient buildings.

Where to Stay in Bataan

Click below & search recommended Bataan hotels/hostels/home rentals within your budget. Remember to set your min/max price, travel dates, and sort by review ratings. I often book online with these trusted booking sites below for rock-bottom prices & convenient bookings.


Book sooner rather than later if you already have your dates set. Cheaper-priced rooms and hotels with high reviews tend to get fully booked faster, especially during busy days like weekends, holidays & peak tourist seasons.
