Maribina Falls

Attraction details
Reviewed 6 July 2014

We rode a hired tricycle to this place. Judging from the width of the access roads this was the best mode of transport to get there. A pick-up, van or car would have a hard time manouvering inside the gated premises.

I went with my dad, sister and young daughter on a Sunday morning and here's what we saw:
- Lovely but not overly powerful falls.
- Rocks are sharp so sturdy footwear recommended: you might end up taking off sandals, slippers or flip-flops to get to the pool safely
- A few huts located at the gate for your gear. We didn't need a hut - I can't recall the exact price but it's not expensive
- Entrance fees for adults and kids are very affordable
- Disappointed with the garbage collected at wading/dipping pool edge consisting of plastic wrappers, bottles and beverage cans. It wasn't much but trash is still trash and it spoiled what would have been a peaceful nature trip

That Sunday we had the whole waterfalls to ourselves. There is a path leading above the waterfalls but only 2 groups of people passed through it quietly while we were there.

If you need to get away from the stress of the rat race, to relax and commune with nature for a day, this is a good place for that. We will definitely visit again.

I luv the place...quiet and refreshing. Truly worth visiting for nature's lovers. We went there late in the afternoon. There were just the 5 of us in there. It was indeed a wonderful get away from the town. Not sure how long was the tricycle drive from Virac downtown but it wasn't a long trip. We paid the driver 200 Php or more to take us there and back, depends on what amount you agreed on . By the way, if you need a reliable tricycle driver in Virac ,contact Doming at 09216894885. He is the nicest , happy worker we've ever met in Virac.

From town to Maribina Falls you'll pay P10.00/each person for a tricycle ride but if you're alone, they'll ask P50.00. From down hill you'll need to walk 5-15 minutes depending on how fast you move. Entrance fee is P20.00 for adults. Hut is P300.00 (I think)

It was drizzling when we arrive so the stones around the falls were slippery. We were too afraid to go to the heart of the falls so we chose to stay at bottom of the falls. Taking a dip while listening to the sound of water and birds is very relaxing.

TIP: best to do this as side trip after touring northern catanduanes. Water is cool, some parts of the natural pool is deep. 20 pesos entrance fee. Bring snacks as there is no near canteen... Enjoy!
