How to get there

It was raining  during our visit but we still pushed through and we just commuted.

For those who will be commuting like us, here's how you can reach Las Casas:

From Doroteo Jose, Manila or Pasay Rotonda along EDSA (below MRT station) or Cubao along EDSA (below MRT station)  :
  • Take the Genesis Bus to Balanga Bus Station (trip starts at 4:00 AM; bus arrives every 30 minutes)
  • From the bus station, take the jeepney going to Bagac or Morong (Bagac-bound has a limited time while Morong-bound has a longer time)
  • Upon reaching Bagac, get down at the Filipino-Japanese Friendship Tower and go to the tricycle station
  • Take tricycle going to Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar (Gate 5 entrance)
Our fare only cost less than P300.

The jeepney also took us directly to Las Casas so we did not have to take a tricycle.

Since Las Casas is a really huge place, you can go around via shuttle, golf cart, bicycle, and kalesa for rent.

They have free jeepney rides which picks passengers up at Casa Mexico, and drops off at Casa New Manila.

What to Eat

For food, they house the following restaurants inside: Cafe Marivent, La Bella Teodora, Taberna Luna, Cusina ni Nanay Maria, and La Parilla.

These restaurants reflect the fusion of Filipino and European Cutlure.

We ate at Cusina ni Nanay ni Maria because it is the sole restaurant that serves Filipino food. It was a bit pricey but the food are enough for sharing and were delicious. You just have to reserve early because there are several guests especially during lunch time.

What to expect inside

Las Casas will take you back to the past with its grandiose replica of historic heritage houses.

Some of which are used for movies such as "Heneral Luna" and "Goyo" while they also have the famed Hotel De Oriente, deemed as the first luxurious hotel in the country, which welcomed APEC leaders in 2015.

They have cultural shows, music and entertainment, water activities such as jet ski, wakeboarding, banana boat, among others. They also have a man-made batis-inspired swimming pool.

You can also play traditional Filipino games at Casa Lubao.

More importantly, photography is allowed.

Guests are encouraged to take off their shoes in most of the houses to show respect to the owners.
