Cariño Resort at Punturin, Valenzuela City: A Great Place to Celebrate!

Last Saturday, One Valenzuela and Little One Valenzuela packed their ever trusty Hawk bag with swimsuits, SPF80 sunblock, floaters, and towels for a quick dip at a local resort. Around 6:30 in the morning, they are on a jeepney going to Malinta Tollgate.

By 7 o’clock, they already found themselves in front of Puregold Paso de Blas. Before walking to the tricycle terminal bound to Cariño Resort, they bought some chocolate bars and cold drinks at Mercury Drugstore.

“Malapit na po ba, Ma?” (Are we there yet, Mom?) Little One Valenzuela asked One Valenzuela in the tricycle as they passed by several painted walls of Brgy. Lawang Bato and Brgy. Punturin. It took us  about ten to fifteen minutes to reach Cariño Resort. Since Little One Valenzuela has been asking the whole week for some swimming escape, the ride seemed too lengthy for her.

 After paying the necessary fees, they were given purple waterproof wristbands/tags.

Comfortable to wear, the wristbands/tags are indeed waterproof.
Little One Valenzuela removed hers at home and it is still pretty intact.
One Valenzuela loved the atmosphere of the resort. It is full of foliage and dangling flowers! The flowing water on rocks and jars gives a calming effect. No wonder some people One Valenzuela know say that it is a good place for a photo or a video shoot. 

Vines of flowers and leaves give shade to guests
Cariño Resort is divided into two major areas- Pavilion One and Pavilion Two.

Pavilion One has a slide. Much of the swimming pool here is 7 feet deep. It also has an area which is around 3 feet in depth (my estimate). Here, Little One Valenzuela stayed and practiced her baby frog kicks. A mini jacuzzi can also be seen in Pavilion One.

Pavilion Two is bigger. Water depth range is from 4 to 5 feet. Most of the visitors flock here since the water is a bit shallow. A bridge and several rock formations add beauty to the place. More tables and cottages are also situated in Pavilion Two.

The Calesa was already reserved when we got there.

For those who want to see the shower room
One Valenzuela and Little One Valenzuela stayed at a table in Pavillion One. One Valenzuela prefers the 7 feet pool. She can readily see Little One Valenzuela, with her floater, having some water fun from the table they got. That whole day, water is their best friend.
At last! Wading in Cariño Resort Pavilion 1 pool.
By observation, One Valenzuela saw several Cariño Resort employees watching over the guests who are swimming in the two pavilions.The rules and regulations of the resort are put up in several locations. Reminders are also placed near cottages and tables. Two thumbs up for that.

By 4 p.m., One Valenzuela and Little One Valenzuela are already in front of Cariño Resort looking for a tricycle to ride. One Valenzuela glanced back at the resort and read “Cariño Resort: A great place to celebrate”. Yeah, it is indeed a great place to celebrate and share some water fun with your family, relatives, and barkada.

Jeepney ride from Malinta, McArthur Hiway to Malinta Exit/Tollgate (Php8.00/head x 2): Php 16.00
Tricyle ride from Malinta Exit/Tollgate (Php16.00/head; Php60 special ride): Php 60.00
(v.v. same cost)

Cariño Resort Fees:
1 Adult pass: Php 160.00 (Daytime, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
1 Child pass: Php 110.00  (Daytime, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.)
Table: Php 300.00 (There are much bigger tables/cottages than what we had. Cariño Resort also has rooms.)

You can bring your own food inside the resort. You can also do some grilling in the resort.

One Valenzuela ordered some fried calamares (Php130) and 2 cups of rice (Php20/cup) from Cariño’s menu. The resort also offers various types of fried chicken, noodles, and fried rice. They also have light beer in buckets (note: hard drinks and extra strong beer are not allowed), crispy pata, sizzling plates, and kilawin. Check their menu for a more complete list.

You won't get lost. Big signs!
You will find a tricycle terminal along the way. Ride a tricycle (blue) and ask the driver to bring you to Cariño Resort.  Cariño Resort is near St. Joseph the Worker Quasi Parish Church.
To Cariño Resort po, Manong!
Like most resorts which are teeming with people during the hot summer months, One Valenzuela advises fellow Valenzuelanos to be up on your feet early for your scheduled swimming trip so you can choose the cottage/table that you want (walk-in guests). At Cariño Resort, you can also reserve cottages and rooms beforehand.
