Pangasinan Stay | El Puerto Marina Beach Resort and Aquatica Marina Water Park

A 4–5 hours drive in a private van from Manila to western part of Lingayen, in North Pangasinan led us to El Puerto Marina Beach Resort. A resort that seemed to be at its lonesome on the western end of Lingayen Beach. Secluded and far-flung. Within its gate and fenced property is a fairly large area. There’s enough parking space for at least 5 vehicles. There’s a fishing pond, a pavilion for dining and if you look closely by the reception counter, a small pond with an arapaima.

Water Park Fun

The adjoining Aquatica Marina Water Park is the highlight for me on this resort. It may be managed and owned by same people behind El Puerto Marina Beach Resort, but there’s a separate entrance fee for this water park. It’s a wonderland of slides and pools I’m sure would be a fitting playground not just for the young ones but adults as well. There’s a wave pool for the artificial surf, a large bucket splash to get instantly wet in a fun way and a number of slides. Personally I enjoyed the slides more, there are three heights to challenge you and one where a salababida (floating device) is required.

The water park is open for the public and has cottages available for day trippers. Guest from El Puerto Marina Beach Resort has discounted packaged rates. The rates below are for non-guest.

Summary

Families and big groups can look into El Puerto Marina Beach Resort as an ideal stay in Lingayen, Pangasinan. It’s remote and private and has enough activities to keep guest occupied. The Aquatica Marina Water Park is the main draw for weekenders looking for a splash of fun. Company outings or team buildings fit in perfectly. The large garden is a good stage for activities. Independent or solo travelers may be put off by its remoteness though.
