Things to do at Pradera Verde

If you're looking for a weekend getaway destination, Pradera Verde is a place you might want to consider. Approximately just 2 hours away from Manila, Pradera Verde is a perfect attraction whether you are up for some extreme activity or just want to take a break from the busy city life.


Wakeboarding

If extreme sports is your thing, then wakeboarding is definitely a must-try activity at Pradera Verde. Whether it is your first time or you're an expert on wakeboarding, Pradera Verde offers facilities that's just right for your skills.

The Beginners' lake is just a straight track while the Pros can play around the oval track with all the ramps and obstacles.

Golf

As easy as it may seem, playing the sport is actually difficult. It's not just about hitting the ball. There are so much to consider in every swing - the wind speed, direction, distance, just to name a few. Golf requires force, focus, and a LOT of patience!

Since we're all first timers, we just tried it in the driving range. As I said, the sport requires a lot of patience. The first few minutes got really frustrating. It took me countless swings before I finally got to perfectly hit the ball. As I watch the ball soar high across the field, it felt like I already won the lottery! Achievement unlocked! ;)

We may have not aced the game, but at least our outfit was on point. Yes? ;)

Biking

Biking has always been one of my hobbies since I was a kid. More than its health benefits, what I love about biking is that it gets me to places at my own pace plus I enjoy the view while on the ride.

Though there are electric carts on standby, ready to take you to different facilities within the club, Pradera Verde is also offering bike rentals that is free-of-charge to those who want to explore the leisure park themselves.






Swimming

What's a weekend getaway without swimming right? Pradera Verde isn't just about extreme sports. The club also boasts a huge wave pool and beach-type pool that families, especially the kids, will surely enjoy!

We were leaving that day so Ruth and I decided to skip siesta and went straight to the pool area after lunch. Too bad though we didn't get to experience the wave because it takes about 45 minutes to warm up the machine and we didn't have that much time left.

Staycation

During our overnight stay at Pradera Verde, we stayed in their 2 Bedroom Villa. The place is so huge for all six of us! It's got 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, a living area and a kitchen and dining area. Though I'm not quite sure if they are charging for corkage fee, the kitchen already has refrigerator to store your food, a microwave to heat your baon, and a water heater for your morning coffee or tea.

There are so many things to do so you won't get bored, plus it's just near the metro so you can enjoy their amenities in no time! The accommodation may be pricey, BUT I think the rates for the activities, especially the food, is really affordable and definitely worth it.
