Pugo Adventure Park or more commonly known as PUGAD is located in Pugo, La Union. It is a vast property situated in a valley separated by a river. From Marcos Highway (Aspiras Highway) the main entrance of the park is still more or less a kilometer away. The park is busy during weekends and parking space may tend to be full at times.
This is where you will be greeted by staffs who will get how large your group and how many adult and children. They will give you a slip and in the registration area, you will choose which cottage and area do you like. (Hint: Tell them you would like to stay near the children’s playground. This area is strategic to the main pools and the mini zoo.) Above photo also shows the actual entrance gate where you have to pay the total amount indicated in your slip provided in the registration area. They will give you your groups stub or ticket. Before you can finally enter, the guard on duty will stamp your hand with PUGAD so when you get out, you can easily enter back.
For me, the park is divided in three (3) phases. First phase is just near the entrance. It has its own cottages and pool. From this area, a hanging bridge will connect you to the second phase. This area also includes its own pool and cottages. Walking farther, another hanging bridge connects it to the third phase.
This phase is the the parks main attraction. The childrens pool and playground is here. Two huge adult pools are also located in this area. Adjacent to this is the mini zoological and botanical garden.
You can engage in a lot of adventure activities. Refer on the rates above.
My brother and I took Package 1. This includes 3 ziplines, wall climbing and rapelling. We were not able to take photos of all the activities as the photo service in the park is a bit pricey. Php150.00 per photo per activity. The ziplines are not considered one activity, so if you want to take all your photos in the cable lines, you have to pay more. The only good thing is that you can have a soft copy of the raw photos of the activities that you have paid for the printed photo.
Activity registrations are done at the Blue Tent. It is located just outside the parks entrance above the registration area.
The park is dotted by additional ammenities and it includes male and female restrooms as well as toilets, they also have grilling stations. You can bring in foods in the park without any fee. Smoking and drinking alcohol is prohibited though. They also have a shopping center and a cafe. Prices are ofcourse a bit higher than usual. They have fairly large ground area on phase 2 and 3 for team building activities.
Though the adventure park do not have available rooms if you want an overnight stay, they have an affiliated inn or guest house outside the park. Try to check it with them. Contacts are below.
