Baluarte is a popular tourist destination in Ilocos Sur. It primarily features a mini-zoo where people can interact with animals.
You can get even close to this tigerrrr!
As a Growling Tiger, it was a privilege to have a photo taken with this sleepy cutie.
It was so surreal. If it weren’t moving, I would mistake it for a tiger stuffed toy. Haha.
We took a stroll and met some new friends along the way.
These birds reminded me of my pet when I was a kid.
We also witnessed a show wherein the staff members ask volunteers from the audience. With the assistance of the staff, the volunteers get the opportunity to be close to the animals. It was a highly interactive experience, but not for the faint of heart.
Best thing about Baluarte? Entrance is free of charge! Hope you enjoyed the photos as much as I enjoyed taking photos of these furry friends!
