How to get to Villa Del Faro
By Private Vehicle
This is good for those who love long drives because you can pass through Tagaytay, another tourist destination, or via South Luzon Expressway (SLEX) and Star Tollway. There is approximately 200 meters of rough road from the main road before you reach the resort. Don’t worry, it is safe for small (but not lowered) and big vehicles alike. You can use Waze or Google maps for navigation.
From Pasay (near MRT-EDSA Taft Station), ride a bus like DLTB going to Calatagan. Buses usually depart from 4:00 AM to 4:30 PM. You can then ask the conductor to assist you to drop you off near Villa Del Faro and then take a tricycle ride to bring you inside the resort.
