There are various options in visiting the Strawberry Farm Baguio; you can take a cab, ride a jeepney or bring your private vehicle.

For private vehicle owners, I recommend downloading Google Maps on your smartphone. This option is helpful in showing directions to La Trinidad Strawberry Farm. You only need a strong internet connection, though, in accessing the map. Worst case scenario, why not go and try asking our friendly locals?

  • From there, you’ll find a lot of jeepneys parked waiting for passengers.
  • Take a jeep with the signage “La Trinidad” and ask the driver to drop you off at La Trinidad Strawberry Farm.
  • The fare costs only PHP 11.25 per person (around USD 0.25) as of December 14, 2021.

I think it is best to visit the strawberry farm in the morning. The sun’s golden light truly adds a glowing ambiance across the field, which is captivating. This is also the best time where farmers pick the freshest strawberries. Also, there are fewer people if you visit the farm early in the morning.

Try the Filipino-made Strawberry Ice Cream
