How to get there DIY Style
Ride a bus from DLTB Buendia bound to Sta. Cruz.
From Sta. Cruz ride a jeep going to Lucban, just tell the driver that you are going to San Salvador or Hulugan Falls, they already know it. Plus, you can also ride on top of the Jeep! (Just ask them if they can allow you to do top load, view is awesome!!) How to get to Cavinti Falls
Fortunately, we were able to ride a jeep to Sta. Cruz, and then we get of the trike terminal of Cavinti. Just let the driver know that you are going to Pueblo El Savador and he will will drop you off to the trike terminal there.
Ride a trike going to Pueblo El Salvador, they already know where that is. The trikes the we rode going there waited for us until 6PM, so we didn’t have any problem waiting for a ride back to the Trike terminal where we are going to ride a jeep going to Sta. Cruz That’s it Travel friends! If you have questions, feel free to comment your thoughts and suggestions!
