Experience two of Aklan’s off-the-beaten-path towns with this private day tour to Banga and Balete. Taking you to landmarks that are unique to the province, you will get to experience local arts and culture in a different light. This escapade best appeals to sightseers and nature enthusiasts wanting to see what other attractions Aklan has to offer.
After getting picked by your driver at the hotel in Kalibo or Caticlan, you will immediately head to the town of Balete, where you will find Basura Garden. The site has been named as such thanks to the owner's showcase collection of various objects, artworks, antiquities, and recyclable waste products, which all came from Baleten-on native peoples. In the private garden, admire the artworks that have been set up as an outlet for the creativity of the family running Basurea Garden.
After exploring the garden, you will visit Jester's Eco-park. A 1.5-hectare property in Calizo, Balete, this eco-park presents a stunning panoramic view of both the lowlands and mountain ranges of several of Aklan's municipalities and Pandan, Antique. Feel free to enjoy the fresh air as you stroll around the area or take a quick dip at the on-site swimming pools. Some ten kilometers away from the eco-park is Villa Julita, a living cultural village, where you will be entertained with folk performances from the locals.
Capping off your tour is a visit to Meliton Integrated Organic Farm. It sits in the town of Banga, a quick drive away from the cultural village. This five-hectare farm will greet you with numerous veggies, culinary herbs, fruit trees, and loads of farm animals, as well. The site has served as an agri-tourism area for the past couple of years, introducing organic farming to visitors. After strolling around the farm, you will then make your way back to Kalibo or Caticlan.
