Whether you crave outdoor activities or a tranquil escape, Lower Magat Eco-Tourism Park offers a slice of nature's wonder for all.

How to get there

The Lower Magat Eco-Tourism Park is easily accessible by car and offers ample parking. If you're driving a private car, take the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and then the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) or Tarlac-Pangasinan-La Union Expressway (TPLEX). Head towards Nueva Ecija, then follow the Maharlika Highway (Pan-Philippine Highway), which goes north until you reach Nueva Vizcaya. Drive towards the municipality of Diadi, where the park is located.

If you're on a commute, you can go to the park via bus. Look for bus companies that have routes going to Santiago City or Tuguegarao. Get off at Bagabag Junction or in Solano, Nueva Vizcaya. You may inform the conductor to drop you off here as well. From there, take a local jeepney or van to Diadi, where you will find the park.

The trip from Manila to Nueva Vizcaya typically takes around 5-7 hours by car or bus, depending on traffic and road conditions. Once in Diadi, local tricycles or habal-habal (motorbike taxis) can take you directly to the park if you don't have your vehicle.

Tickets and entry

Lower Magat Eco-Tourism Park is a budget-friendly haven. Entrance fees are minimal, usually below a hundred pesos. This is for the park's maintenance and conservation. Your entrance fee already includes access to the park's attractions. It is still best to be updated and research the current entrance fees, as they may change depending on the season. 

If you bring your car, there is also a minimal charge for parking. You can also bring your food for picnics. As of this writing, there is also a separate payment for the pool, but it is free when you are staying or renting rooms inside the park. It is recommended that authorities from the park be asked beforehand.
The park is open daily from 8 AM to 5 PM.

Best time to visit

The best time to visit the Lower Magat Eco-Tourism Park in Nueva Vizcaya is during the dry season from November to April. This makes outdoor activities like hiking, biking, and exploring the park more enjoyable. Trails and pathways are dry and safer to navigate compared to the rainy season. The dry season is also perfect for camping, picnicking, and other outdoor recreational activities.

Lower Magat Eco-Tourism Park is a perfect place for a day trip or a weekend getaway, especially during Nueva Vizcaya's cool season, from December to February. March to April are also good months to visit the park as these months are also popular due to school vacations and holidays, making it a good time for family visits. These months are the peak season of the park, so expect that there will be crowds during this time. 

If you prefer a quieter visit, try to avoid holidays and weekends, when the park may be busier with tourists. While visiting during the rainy season from May to October is still possible, be prepared for potential rain showers, muddy trails, and a generally more humid environment.
