For our road trip story in this month's issue, our destination is Costa Pacifica in Baler. Known as the surfing capital of the Philippines, Baler also offers other outdoor activities.
"I take in the sights and sounds of Aurora's provincial capital," writes our online managing editor Tracy Carpena. "Its paved roads are ideal for a nice, long bicycle ride. Driving enthusiasts will surely enjoy the twisty roads and unclogged highways, too."
For this trip, Hyundai's Grand i10, Grand Santa Fe and Grand Starex were our companions. The Korean carmaker's i10 particularly impressed our group. You wouldn't believe how much luggage it could swallow for a four-day Baler expedition!
