Urbiztondo, San Juan, La Union (in Pictures)

Our initial plan was to go to San Juan, La Union via Partas bus going to Vigan. However, we didn’t make it to the last trip from Partas’ bus station in Cubao, which is 11:00 PM. So we took a side trip to Baguio City. We rode the Victory Liner bus at 1:00 AM and we arrived in Baguio City around 5:00 AM.

Around 8:00 AM we rode a bus to Agoo, La Union and before midnight we were already at San Juan, La Union (via San Fernando La Union). I later found out that there’s another route from Baguio City to Naguilian and from Naguilian to San Fernando, La Union. That’s for another trip though.

We book a Zen Room at the G Hotel in San Juan, La Union. It’s very accessible to 7-11 and the Urbiztondo Beach. San Juan is a surf town similar to Baler (Aurora) and Siargao (Surigao). However, during our trip last May 31 to June 1, the sea was relatively “quite”. Not much strong waves. It’s definitely not surfing season but we still got to see a lot of surfers and those just learning the sport.

We had our lunch at Tavern By The Sea and dinner at Kabsat. We had an amazing time taking pictures of the sunset. The next day, June 1, is a totally different story. It was raining almost the entire day. In fact, we didn’t take a picture of the sunset because it’s raining and is very gloomy.

San Juan, La Union (or Elyu as the tourists call it) has a lot of bars and restaurants. It’s like Boracay but only the sands of Elyu is the ordinary gray one. The food is expensive in Elyu but there are still cheaper ones that you can find in the back alleys. You just have to be patient in searching for it.

After spending two days in Elyu, we went to Vigan City.
