Paradizoo Theme Farm Mendez Cavite

The last weekend before the school started, my Ramos side of the family headed to the highlands to give the kiddos some farm experience. I mentioned earlier, I was able to score a voucher good for 4 pax. So off we go and enjoy the "Simple Life".

From Zoomanity website: The place is  full of rich gardens and animals. Some of those animals are roaming free to your delight, others are behind their fences. Visits to Paradizoo, the theme park cum farm zoo will always sooth your senses.

It was quite easy to get there, from Mendez Crossing where the public market is located and a Jollibee branch turn right then go straight ahead some meters away. Turn left at the corner before you reach the 7-11 Convenience Store. You will see a triangle island so take left until you see the Paradizoo sign.

So the kids were already excited, so am I. Excited for them at least... Hahaha! Seeing how ecstatic they were wanting to go further and further into the vast land area and interact with more animals up close and personal with their natural "smell" and all.

But the farm is 10,000 hectare if I heard it right so I took time to stop and listen to the zoo guide right at the entrance and take mental picture of the vicinity map. We were free to explore at our own pace at our own direction so I was a bit afraid to get lost and end up in the jungle. Bwahahaha!!! *Just recently saw the Blue Lagoon Movie so forgive my imagination*

Visitors are actually encouraged to interact with the farm animals to feed, pet and milk them. You can buy a handful of carrot or cabbage leaves at the mini store inside for Php 30.00. But if you want to feed most of them why not buy food from the market before going there. Look how my nieces are enjoying but at the same time afraid to touch the hungry animals.

I also enjoy the look of the garden and vegetation area, it could be a nice venue for a simple wedding but you will need to put in quite an effort to setup though.

Pawis-pawis na after going around so good thing they sell a cute shirt in their souvenir shop. Best to bring extra clothes especially for the kids if you will be there on a summer. Sinuot ko na kagad when we transferred to Residence Inn.

My brother was in nostalgia mode the whole time kept saying ... "Meron din nyan sa Batong-Dalig" 
True enough most of the garden plants and some farm animals, we do have at the house we grew up in Batong-Dalig, Kawit, Cavite because we were one of the early residence of that small barangay when it was still being developed. That made us thankful to Tatay and Nanay for allowing us to grew up in a simple home where we get to be kids... Ngayon, may bayad na yun para maexperience lang. Hahaha...hope you enjoyed this post!
