31 Best Tourist Spots in San Miguel Bulacan

San Miguel, Bulacan – is one of the most historic towns in Bulacan, dating back to the pre-Spanish colonial era. According to historians, its original name is “Mayumo,” from the Kapampangan term for “sweets.” Later it was renamed “Miguel de Mayumo” after the first town mayor, Miguel Pineda.

With the influence of the Catholic church and the Augustinian missionaries, the town was renamed “San Miguel de Mayumo” in honor of San Miguel de Arkanghel (St. Michael the Archangel), the patron saint of the town. We all know that San Miguel is the hometown of Pastillas and Biak-na-Bato National Park.

There are about 100 different caves inside the Biak-na-Bato National Park. Most of them don’t have a name yet but worth seeing. This park is a nature reserve and is protected from illegal loggers and quarry operations. Aside from that, this is a historical place from the Philippine Revolution to the second world war. The caves were once a hiding place of national heroes fighting for Philippine independence during the Spanish, American, and Japanese occupation.

It is best to visit the part during the dry seasons – November to early June. You can still visit the park during the rainy season but with caution as the water level or the Biak-na-Bato river rises unpredictably. It is best to hire a tour guide for your peace of mind and a better tour experience.

There are still plenty of less-discovered tourist destinations in San Miguel. We will make sure to update this list as often as we can. Going and spending time outdoors is really relaxing and quite therapeutic. According to experts, spending time outdoors, especially in green spaces, is one of the fastest ways to improve your health and happiness. It’s been shown to lower stress, blood pressure, and heart rate while encouraging physical activity and buoying mood and mental health.

We need to be mindful of our surroundings and the environment. Let us remember the Mountaineer’s Creed, which says,

Leave nothing but footprints. Kill nothing but time. Take nothing but pictures.”
