Fresh Catch, Isdaan: The Floating Resto Fun Park

I heard Isdaan from my cousin and since we’re just nearby I decided to drop by and see it for myself. It opened last quarter of 2011 and yes it’s the branch of the famous Isdaan in Gerona, Tarlac. Exactly the same concept but I believe this one  in Calauan, Laguna is not yet finish since there’s still an empty lot and still undergoing constructions. It’s the sister company of Barrio Fiesta and  owned by the Ongpauco’s.

Facade of Isdaan

We had entered on the left side of Isdaan and this big Buddha head welcomed us.

The place is huge and all over the place are gigantic statues of Buddhas, monkeys, crocodiles and mermaids.

 Yes, you can go up and “climb” the monkey. :D

Kids will love the place. There’s a corner dedicated only to them. There’s free face painting balloons and loot bags. For sure they’ll be delighted to see Angry Birds, gigantic dinosaurs, Goofy and the famous Disney couple Mickey and Minnie Mouse. There’s also a free boat ride but there’s an obligatory tip of 20 PHP for the bangkero.

 There’s also Batman and Incredible Hulk.

What I love about Isdaan? The Obama’s and Former Presidents Cory Aquino and Joseph Estrada. Always ready for picture-taking. :) :) :)

Taksiyapo Wall

This is for you if you there’s anger within you but that you want to release. There’s a corresponding price for every piece of crockery that you want to throw against the wall. This is a place to vent out the feelings you can’t say in words.

Bingwitan Bagong Huli Mo

Saw a lot of kids in line with their rod, fishing. There’s a minimal fee for this as well. It can also be a way of bonding between father and daughter/son.

For food, there’s a lot of options. There’s an array of meals/food to choose from.

Pritong Bicol

Barrio Fiesta

The Singing Cooks and Waiters atbp.

Boodle Fight

As for us since there’s only two of us we found prices a bit pricey. It’s best for group of family and friends.  Since we don’t want to spend much on food we only had ordered inihaw na isda (grilled fish) and rice.

steamed Rice 99 PHP

inihaw na isda (grilled fish) 155 PHP

itlog na pula (salted egg) 35.20 PHP

 green mango shake 82 PHP

fresh buko 64 PHP

buko pandan 94 PHP

condiments

While dining someone will serenade you. Just give a tip of 20 PHP.

Other interesting displays:

floating huts

At night there will be live entertainment…

 And there’s a lot of stores for pasalubong including Aling Nene’s Sweets and Pasalubong

 

It’s so nice to know that we have this one now in Laguna. Another option people can flock to aside from the usual resorts, hot springs, malls and movie houses during weekends or vacations. The place is great for families and friends who want to bond or just simply relax and unwind. It’s some-what like a theme park for me as well. And there’s one more thing I love about the place. There’s no entrance fee! So go and find time to visit ISDAAN. :)

Fresh Catch, Isdaan: The Floating Resto Fun Park

Address: Brgy. Bangyas, Calauan, Laguna

HOW TO GET HERE

From San Pablo City:

Ride a jeepney to Sta Cruz then ask the driver to drop you in Masapang. It’s the boundary of Bay and Calauan. You’ll know you’re there when you see a huge statue of ducks (itik). Fare from San Pablo to Masapang is 25 PHP. Then another short jeepney ride. Ride a Calamba bound jeepney it will pass through Isdaan. Fare is 8 PHP. Isdaan is on the left side, just across.

Another option from San Pablo is to ride a Calamba bound jeepney. Go down on Bay crossings. Fare is 25 PHP. Ride another jeepney to Sta. Cruz and go down on Isdaan. Fare is 8 PHP. Isdaan is on the right hand side.

From Manila:

Ride a Sta Cruz bound bus (DLTB, Green Star and HM Transport). It will be just one ride. Just ask the driver to drop you off in Isdaan.

For private vehicle: Take SLEX then exit to Calamba. Go straight to Los Banos. From Los Banos there’s a crossing for Calauan town proper, Sta Cruz and Bay, Laguna. Go straight to Sta Cruz way instead, then on the right side will be Isdaan, just 1 km away from the Crossing.
