Summer Getaway to Palpalokada, Burgos, Ilocos Norte

Enjoying the trip to Burgos, Ilocos, Norte. Burgos is the last town in the northwestern part of Luzon, about 47 kilometers north of Laoag City. It is coastal town with rugged hills and mountains lying between the towns of Bangui and Pasuquin.  Burgos has a heritage structure called the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, also known as Burgos Lighthouse.

After we stayed at the Santuario de Maria Retreat House we went up to Palpalokada led by Burgos Mayor Cresente Garcia. Mayor Cris Garcia, is helping create greener pastures from additional livelihood via tourism.

Palpalokada, Burgos, Ilocos Norte. Pal-loka is an Ilocano term given to handmade sandals/slippers, made of used rubber tire for the soles and rope for the uppers, popular in the olden days. Palpalokada may translate to “their slippers.”

Experience cliff horseback riding in a place local vaqueros call PalpalokadaHorseback riding around Palpalokada and down and up the neighboring cliff and rock formations gives you a powerful view of the West Philippine Sea.

Palpalokada is something else. The view from the top was overwhelming. Make Palpalokada your summer getaway. Enjoy!

How far is Parpalokada from Poblacion? Where is the best place to stay when visiting Burgos - any hotels nearby? If yes, how much is the stay per night-day?
