How to Go to Strawberry Farm Baguio

There are various options for 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 helps show directions to La Trinidad Strawberry Farm. You only need a strong internet connection to access the map. Worst case scenario, why not go and try asking our friendly locals? The people of Benguet are well known for their accommodating and friendly nature, making you feel at home around the province.

If you don’t have a private vehicle but have some extra cash, take a cab and tell the driver to drop you off at La Trinidad Strawberry Farms. Although the fare will be a little pricey, it will be more comfortable and more accessible to travel to this beautiful location. Unfortunately, taxis can only accommodate up to four passengers at a time, and you might need to “rent a cab” if you need more than four passengers.

For commuters who opted for a jeepney ride, here’s your guide:

From Baguio City

  • Take a walk and go to Shuntug Road (in front of Baguio City Hall).
  • From there, you’ll find a lot of jeepneys parked and waiting for passengers.
  • Take a jeep with the “La Trinidad” signage and ask the driver to drop you off at La Trinidad Strawberry Farm.
  • The fare costs only PHP 17 per person (around USD 0.25).

This is also the best time when farmers pick the freshest strawberries. Also, there are fewer people if you visit the farm early in the morning.
