Its was in the early 80's the first time i went to mambucal resort, managed then by goverment and i stayed at honeybee motel along the highway from the airport that time.from there you can go straight from airport or honeybee motel to mambucal murcia... it was so beautiful then.mambucal is booming that time to its peak.
Second visit early 90's...honeybee motel is gone and mambucal was ruin not so pleasent anymore.
Third visit, 2012...the place changed a lot...privately owned...they have butterfly gardens, you can kayak on lagoon and the 12 magnificient falls have already guides, unlike before...you climb at your own risk. Shops of flowers aline the well renovated streets towards the short bridge. Have 3 swimming pools (pool curfew at 10pm and open at 7am, there lots of small eatery offers different foods and drinks, public washrooms are now accesible...acommodations improved alot, its clean and safe. All airconditions and boiling mud and sulfur lake are still around which is not man-made...really wonder of nature (we used to dip chicken there before back in 80's to remove feathers and grilled it for lunch)
To get there, the jeep terminal located in libertad market, near UNOR University. Fare is cheap less than 100php for a less than an hour ride.. Entrance in mambucal is cheap, less than 50php, per pax... rooms are cheap depends on what type of accommodations you want... they have family rooms with 3 doubledeck inside, some of the accommodations are like small houses in front of lagoon... you can go hiking,biking,jogging,etc...they have mud pack festival too...
Mambucal resort is so nice that is cheap and in budget place to go but the experience is so amazing that you would not expect you got it in just a small price.
