my boyfriend made the necessary arrangements, you have to book/make a reservation especially if you're planning to go on a holiday. the package includes the balsa ride plus food (love their fresh paco with weird looking shrimp that is endemic in the lake) however, brace yourself as there are no decent shower rooms, nor transient house so you would have...

I have long heard of Lake Pandin and loved the pictures of friends who visited the lake. So, one weekend we took time to really visit the place. We parked our car near the highway and walked a few minutes before we reached the lake. The road leading to the lake needs improvement and the thing is, it's not senior... More

Among all the seven lakes in San Pablo...this is the best. Actually I don't recommend visiting to all the 7 lakes...most are boring. Visit this one na lang....period! GREAT PLACE!

While every single Filipino focuses on the result of the Election last May 9, 2016, our group decided to explore Lake Pandin. We had fun planning for our upcoming activities while sipping our buko juice. Then at lunch we ordered their special combos and ate our baon. Overall we had an amazing time except that the comfort room is not... More

Lake Pandin is the cleanest lake among all the lakes in San Pablo City. It is evident on the fact that people are allowed to swim in it. The vegation around the lake is still thick and I like the fact that you need to do a little trek before you can reach this place. Aside from the beautiful scenery,... More

LOCALS: PLEASE DO NOT not let the horse bath on the pampang/shore of the lake!!!! people are swimming!!!! PLEASE do not shorten the trip. 2hours is 2hours. VISITORS: PLEASE... More

Four of us had a lovely trip to Lake Pandin in San Pablo, Laguna. We left early to avoid heavy traffic. The lake is difficult to find so when you ask for directions from the locals, make sure you ask for baranggay Santo Angel or simply "ilog". It is a 15-minute walk to the lake from the makeshift parking lot.... More

Every time we have a balikbayan relative or our company has a foreign visitor, I always bring them to this place. Best time to go here is around 10am. It is advisable to contact Ms. Tina ahead to ensure that there is food and available raft upon your arrival. Standard lunch set includes rice, pako slad, grilled tilapia and fresh... More

Our cousin had heard of this place, she lives in Manila. We had a little difficulty finding it with the GPS - but it was worth the wait. It's a beautiful lake with cool bamboo rafts, and food prepared for your journey. Once we were being paddled out on the lake the sun went in and it called. It was... More
