Did you know that aside from the beach, the heritage resort features a few swimming pools not readily seen by tourists or patrons. Here are some pics (All rights reserved)
This pool is open to all guests, the kids enjoyed it, the water is lukewarm
This pool is integrated at the back of one of the houses along the estero
This pool is shielded by houses that passersby would hardly notice it's there

Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar features a canal or estero named after the original Estero de Binondo, but this one is a lot cleaner and no smell of stench as the one in the Binondo quarters. You can go boating in the estero for a fee. Here are some pics. (All rights reserved)

Had a chance to go around Manila during a short break so, I brought the family to Fort Santiago de Matamoro (killer of Moros) The place is being renovated especially the center plaza. Nice to see that the place was packed with tourists. I was not happy though with the museum, it looked cramped, so many memorabilia packed into a small space. Hopefully, the renovation will cover that as well.
