I Spent a Night in a Camper Van Hotel in the Philippines’ Jungle

Fortunately, there was a spacious outdoor area that had a campfire, a dipping pool, and a sink. There was also a basketball court, where some local boys were playing.

A local boy lit up the campfire with some wood and a blowtorch, which helped keep bugs away.

Ultimately, there wasn’t much to do at the resort. It’s miles away from the region’s caves and waterfalls. I wanted to take a dip in the pool, but the water was stagnant, and some bugs were floating on the surface. Locals were bathing and washing their clothes in a nearby stream, but they warned me that there were plenty of freshwater leeches.

“We noticed kids want to swim, so we made a small dipping pool. We change out the water for every new guest,” Go explained. “We plan to make a natural swimming pool, without any chemicals.”

When it came to meals, food was cooked-to-order by the staff. They served some iconic Filipino dishes, like sinigang, a sour and savory soup.
