After the energetic activity in Cavinti Falls, we went here in Camarin Resort sitting by the side of Caliraya Lake, it’s a resort owned by the NAPOCOR or National Power Corp. It’s a resort open for everyone and you can come here to have a picnic, organize your event or just want to chase the sunset that will glow over the Caliraya Lake.
We didn’t do much here because we just ate our merienda and also met the manager of the resort, who is a wife to a councilor of the town. I didn’t get much info about this resort, but the most selling point here is that you can enjoy the Caliraya Lake, the eco adventure trip, the team building facilities and also the events center.
Here’s some info about Camarin Resort

Here’s an arc for a wedding reception
We saw that there’s an ongoing class reunion party at the events center, I heard that this is always booked.
Going around Camarin Resort, here we discovered that there are tree houses
You can create your own adventure by crossing the hanging bridge and go to the other side of the tree house. I think this is also part of their team building site.
This is our close encounter to the man made lake called Caliraya Lake, it’s a big lake and behaves like an ocean. Yeah, there’s small waves if strong wind is present.
We crossed in a small island by crossing this hanging bridge. I super enjoyed walking here because hanging bridge is one of my favorite structure in any province.
taking a photo of our lady bloggers,,,its OOTD pa more mania hahahaha.
At the other side of the mini island, I spotted a camping site. I guess its good to have an overnight stay here by the lake during summer. When we arrived here, we experienced some rain and this prevented us to stay more outdoors. We went back to the function hall to eat our snacks.
There’s a tower here in Camarin Resort, I guess it’s a watch tower for boats and yacht here in Caliraya Lake, I attempted to climb it, but the rain prevented me to stay on the ground. The guard said that we should not try going up because its slippery.
The dock by the lake is the most awesome area at Camarin Lake, it reminded me a teleserye – Tabing Ilog and Dawson’s Creek haahaha.
Here’s Athena having a solo OOTD selfie with the Caliraya Lake
My head starts to imagine that I’m already paddling my inflatable kayak here in Caliraya Lake. The lake is a bit tamed and quiet whenever they are near the cove or big land mass.
Chasing the sunset here in Camarin Resort.
see that watch tower?
I spotted some paddle boat parked nearby, I guess you can rent it if you want to roam around the side of Caliraya Lake.
And here’s our snacks…I was so tired that day and I almost hug my plate and munch the pancit noodles with lots of love. Also their Pichi Pichi is the best!! I wonder if its an original recipe of Camarin Resort.
Just chilling and invading the buffet…. hahahaha.
A group of students performed a cultural dance for us that night. And then one girl sang a kundiman “Dahil sa’yo” song, it’s a solo performance that blew us away. Also I heard Kathy is singing the kundiman song too hahhah.
Our day 1 here in Cavinti is start to end, but there are more adventures and eco trip the next day, we’re going to recharge ourselves after this sunset..and also nurse those painful muscles to get ready for another challenge.
Awesome trip here in Cavinti.
watch out for my part 7.
