Pinsal Falls is located in Santa Maria, Ilocos Sur, my home province. It takes 30 minutes or more travel time from the Central Market to the Falls. Central Market is situated along the highway so if you want to go to Pinsal Falls commuting, you may ride a tricycle from the market. The cost would depend on how long you... More

We went there last March 12, 2016. Although it was summer and there was not enough water because of El nino, we were greeted by a majestic landscape. The place still needs maintenance and improvement. Very few people know the place which I think is somewhat good because it is not yet crowded. We paid P100 for the guide and... More

We went here October 2015, and the bridge going here was recently destroyed by flooding (so we had to take a longer route). The falls are just beautiful! There is a fairly steep hike going to the actual falls (but the trail is paved). Bring your own food, towels, and toiletries. It's sad that some people have vandalized the rocks... More

If you are travelling to Vigan, then this is a must-see on the way there. There is only one signpost off the main road, after the church heading north, and then a short 3 km stretch of very windy road through several barangay villages. Well worth the 20 pesos parking fee, this is a truly beautiful waterfall set in beautiful... More

Pinsal Falls is located in a town called Santa Maria in Ilocos Sur. If you live in Manila and would like to go there using a private vehicle, It would take you about 9 to 10 hours. Although, you're not going to have a bumpy ride, as the roads are cemented, it would be better to drive a 4x4 as... More
