Baluarte of Ilocos Sur

Baluarte is defined as a stronghold or a fortress. One of the must see attraction when in Vigan is Baluarte, a privately owned resort by Luis Chavit Singson. 

Baluarte serves as a haven to a number of animal collection, from different species of birds to mini ponies, deer and even Bengal Tiger. It is a 80 hectares piece of land with gently rolling terrains, hills and mountain.


  • Ride the carriage drawn by miniature pony.
  • Meet and greet Ostrich roaming around the resort.
  • Get up close with the Bengal Tiger.

The best thing about the resort is there is no entrance fee to the resort.
So when in Vigan, visit Baluarte a ten minutes drive from Vigan City Center. Till my next travel....
