10 Mountain Resort Getaways for a Family Vacation within Luzon

Not one to go on a beach vacation? Maybe a mountain resort might be better for you and your family!

While it’s nice to swim and have sun-kissed skin, some of us might prefer the serene sight of the horizon on top of a mountain. Many families prefer surrounding themselves with nature instead. Seeing trees that cool the air and hiking to see the harmony of wildlife is their cup of tea. And if this is yours as well, here are mountain resort getaways you can take your family to!

Nauvoo Farm Resort

Location: Orchard Village, Barangay Ayala, Magalang, Pampanga

Nestling at the foot of Mount Arayat, Nauvoo Farm Resort is also a popular pilgrimage destination. This is because it’s right near the Banal na Bundok. Besides the usual amenities such as a pool, Nauvoo Farm Resort lets its guests interact with the many farmers harvesting bananas and mangos. Plus, they can take a short hiking trip up Mount Arayat to admire the sunrise and sunset.
