Abra's Hidden Gem "The Lusuac Spring"

I had the privilege to spent my holy week break from work in the Province of Abra, my best friend Sharon's hometown. A landlocked province of the Philippines in the the Cordillera Administrative Region in Luzon, with eight (8) hours travel time from Manila on a land trip. This province has received many negative telltale as a tourist destination. Thanks to our local media for the publicity reports on their unstable political conditions. Some tourist are hesitant to explore the wonders this province has to offer due to safety measures. But it's time to change this perspective as I tell you may experience on this beautiful quite province of Abra. People are very friendly and accommodating and pleasant to talked with. 

As I stayed here for a couple of days, I discovered that Abra has its fair share of hidden gems, their famous Lusuac Spring in Barangay Poblacion Lagayan, Abra, a refreshing spring a waiting for us to swim. A perfect place to cool-off from the summer heat, it's clear water are indeed inviting for a dip.

Lusuac Spring is a well-landscaped resort, it is a good place to hold picnics and bonding with family and friends. It is open to the public with 50 pesos per head for adults and 20 pesos for children's entrance fee. There are also cottages in the area available for rent, prices ranges to 150 to 350 pesos, with a slide on the edge of the pool for kids and kids at heart. They also have a place for you to change your clothes and a comfort room. (Ps. prices may change without prior notice)

The water comes from the underground of the trees surrounding the pool. It's amazing to know that the local people within the area used this water as source for their cooking and drinking needs. So, worry no more, if you forgot to bring your own bottles of water because this area provides the unlimited supply of spring water fresh from mother nature. You can also wallow in your drinks in the pool to cool it. Thanks God the spring doesn’t lose water all year round even during dry seasons.

Below the pool is wherein the excess water falls for locals to wash their clothes. Other travelers and guest would also go down there to challenged their strong self to drop of water from above. Were supposed to try it but, it was so slippery and dangerous so we let it aside and we just continue swimming in the pool.

Lusuac Spring is waiting to be unveiled to an open-minded visitors, thrill seekers and a nature lover like moi. It's worth a visit because the cool water "Lusuac" has to offer would definitely refresh the weary bodies of travelers and its guest. Plus the cool breeze of the air and calm atmosphere the trees that surrounds the swimming area is worth the experience.

There are various ways to go to Abra, from Manila to Abra via Partas, Dominion or Philippine Rabbit Bus. Dropped of point would be in Bangued, Abra terminal, from there you can ride a jeep bound to Lagayan. And from Lagayan town proper, ask a tricycle driver to bring you to Lusuac Spring.

I personally don't know a place where to stay in Abra since I stayed at my best friends house. But you can check this site for your reference so help plan your Abra Adventure.
