Baler is a very popular surfing spot in the Philippines,
and not far from it is Maria Aurora - a place very rich of Philippine history.
Last May, I had a 2D/1N trip to Baler. Even with the short notice, I-tour Baler, was able to plan our trip for us. We informed them of our budget and they designed a tour suited for our time and budget.
Thank you I-tour Baler! :)
I left Manila at about 6am in the morning, and arrived lunch time at Maria Aurora's wet market.
We stayed at Malamig Resort which is located at Maria Aurora.
A tricycle was our way around the city.

|Surfing is a dangerous sport. Always listen to your instructor. I obtained my first ever ankle sprain here. :(|
Now is the right time to go back to Baler, since we have already entered the Ber-months.
The waves are perfect for surfing at this time of the year.
(You can also check out La Union, they have an upcoming event this coming October. :) )
If you want to focus on surfing, I prefer La Union.
But if you want to surf, hike, and know more of our history, then Baler is perfect for you.
I would not recommend an overnight trip though, because it will definitely leave you wanting more.
And be careful when you surf! :)
Always listen to your coach, or you might end up like me.
UPDATE: My ankle is fully healed, after 3 looong months!
