Green Canyon Leisure Farms is an eco-conscious (and dog-friendly!) resort conveniently located just outside Manila. Last month, we visited our family in the Philippines. We wanted to escape city life and have a relaxing staycation. Because we were traveling with small children, I wanted to go somewhere not too far away from the city. My dad treated us to a lovely weekend retreat at Green Canyon Leisure Farms. Read about our fun farm adventure!

Green Canyon Leisure Farm’s restaurant had a variety of Filipino and international dishes, with fresh produce straight from their organic farm. For dinner, we tried their Pampanga-style sisig, which was so tasty. Their Filipino-Italian four-cheese pizza was good. Their fresh mango shakes were very good and refreshing. We enjoyed dining at the veranda which was overlooking the mountains and the farm.
Breakfast was buffet-style and had a variety of Filipino dishes as well as American food. We were provided with very good service and we had a great dining experience.
What To See
We saw a hanging bridge, a small river, and the surrounding gardens. There were golf carts with drivers that took us from one spot to another. It was a very convenient way to go around, especially with a senior citizen and two small children.
Green Canyon Leisure Farms is quite close to Dinosaurs Island Pampanga. After checking out on Sunday morning, we drove to Dinosaurs Island. Now read about our dinosaur adventure!
