You can stroll around Picnic Grove, see the beautiful fauna at Flower Farm, or visit the animals at Paradizoo or Residence Inn Zoo.

4. Have some family-friendly fun with the kids.
If you have kids, then you know spending time with them is precious and that they won’t be kids for ever. Spend some quality time with them at Sky Ranch near Taal Vista Hotel and go on rides like the rollercoaster and the Mini Viking Ship. You can also ride the Sky Eye for a wonderful view of Tagaytay. It is the tallest Ferris Wheel in the Philippines too.  

5.  Experience healing at Tierra de Maria.
If you are in need of some spiritual healing, head over to Tierra de Maria, which is close to View Park Hotel. It is a solemn place, perfect for soul searching and meditation. You can spend time here for prayer and healing. There is a meditation deck on the 3rd floor with a stunning view of Taal Lake that will make your retreat more memorable and special. The place itself is beautiful. Here you can view a lovely 50-foot statue of the Virgin Mary.
