    Laguna: How to Get to Taytay Falls, Majayjay: Map, Entrance Fee, Camping

    Probably the second most famous waterfall in Laguna is Taytay Falls in Majayjay, next only to the world-famous Pagsanjan Falls. This falls was visited by Tutubi thrice in the past, when digital cameras were not yet the "in" thing, including a birthday treat to his now departed mother, giving it some sort of nostalgic value to the sentimental Tutubi.

    This travel guide to Taytay falls is for those souls looking at fresh information how to get there, what to expect and the usual entrance fee/environmental fee, overnight camping and parking rates.

    Updated: March 2019

    Travel Guide: Taytay Falls in Majayjay, Laguna:

    Taytay Falls, Majayjay, Laguna with a person swimming on the pool to add scale and estimate the height of the waterfalls, popular for camping and day trip (picture courtesy of Tutubi's cousin who recently went there)

    Taytay falls entrance fee: PhP30.00 (some call this environmental fee)
    Car parking fee: PhP40.00
    Camping: you can pitch your own tent on the best place you can see near the falls

    Notes and reviews:
    1. The water here is too cold, too cold even for the cold-resistant Tutubi 10 years ago that he wasn't able to swim too long in the ice-cold water from Mt. Banahaw.
    2. There are too many people on weekends, much more during Holy Week. It's sad that people leave their garbage instead of bringing them back and personally throw at trash cans.
    3. There are toilets available but not for the squeamish, with running water of course.
    4. Information and picture of Taytay Falls provided by Tutubi's cousin who recently camped out overnight at the place.
    5. You may combine this place with Pagsanjan Falls, Cavinti Underground River and Caves Complex and Panguil River Eco-park for your Laguna tour itinerary.
