Pungsod just had a chance to travel with a cause. After the Libro Ko, Libro Mo program, we decided to explore Bucari, “the summer capital of Iloilo” and one of the booming tourist spots in the region.
The place is located in Brgy. Bucari Sitio Tabionan, Leon, a municipality in the southwestern part of Iloilo Province.
If you are from Iloilo City and you own a tent, you don’t have to spend more than 500php to spend the night in the camping site where you can lay on the grass, stare at the the sky that holds a thousand stars (if the weather permits) as the cold wind envelops the air and the sound of the crickets lulls you to sleep. This is something that you cannot experience in the city.
Aside from that, Bucari has more to offer: vegetable plantations, rice terraces, waterfalls and rock formations, among others.
