It’s a new activity that we brought to the island. It’s easy, very inclusive as anyone who can walk can easily get on the board. It empowers the kids because they can get on it easily. Our oldest rider by far is 75 years old and he had lots of fun. The board is very safe, very balanced and easy but with the cardio benefits.

This is tucked away down a side street but worth a visit if you can find it.There is a lot of history in the building so you can take a while here or be quite quick if you don't want to look at the personal effects in too much detail.

I was not impressed when we stopped here! Outside, it seemed dirty and not well maintained. Inside: Personal stuffs on display such as desk used by VP Lopez, pictures, bedroom, dining room, kitchen w/o appliances, etc. Entrance fee is 50 pesos per person. Needs major cleaning and dusting up here!

Wanna learn about a supposed arranged marriage that was ditched by Mariquit for her one true love? Visit this place and be enthralled as the guide retells the story of Mariquit and her husband, the then Vice President of the Philippines, Fernando Lopez Sr. Their antique possessions are still preseved, including their shoes, telephones, bags, cameras, and more. You can sit down in the living room for all the time you want and look at their photo albums. Find and be amazed of the portrait of the couple whose eyes seems to follow you wherever you go. Pay an extra tip to the guide for beautiful photos. There’s an ample parking space at the back. No food is served though, just plain tour of the house with minimal entrance fee. No need to reserve or set an appointment in visiting.

When we reached the place we were bit hesitant to enter, no one in it, the house was closed and a bit creepy. The neighborhood inform us to just call the caretaker. When we enter the house you will be amazed. All the memorabilia of Fernando Lopez, the former Vice President of the Philippines and his wife Mariquit was still there even the bed with "kulambo" was still there. The minimal entrance fee which is P 50.00 was worth it to know some history of the house and the love story of Fernando and Mariquit.
