Cooling Down in Hurom-Hurom

Over the years, Aklan the mainland has been overshadowed by its most popular tourist destination, Boracay Island.   But aside from its powdery white beach, Aklan has a lot more to offer.  Take, for instance,  its cold springs.

Hurom-Hurom  is one of the cold spring resorts in Nabas, Aklan. The main pool is actually a basin that catches  water from a spring that flows from the mountains. Locals enjoy taking a dip here as it is way cheaper than going all the way to Boracay.  Plus, the cold water is just perfect for summer!

When we went there last week, the place was teeming with local tourists.

I’m not really into cold springs but the kids really love it, especially Mushroom.

A few days before our trip, Mushroom’s parents gave him his own cellphone so they can get in touch with him while he’s away.  That night, after his Hurom-Hurom adventure, Mushroom’s mom texted him to ask if he went swimming. This was his reply (as texted by him, word for word):

“Yes but not thee beeach

we went to the pool

i had fun the water was sooo cold good bye”

      the best way to get to hurom hurom … if you are coming from Kalibo just ride a jeep or suv via caticlan or nabas and disembark in crossing toledo, nabas aklan and take a ride by motorcycle. the fare is 20 pesos per head. you can choose which cold spring you want. there are three (3)
      cold springs in laserna. 1. simple sinag cold spring (simplecio sinag, name of the owner of the cold spring) . 2. manyuko cold spring 3. hurom hurom cold spring.

      and if you are coming from boracay via caticlan. take a ride by jeep or suv via nabas or kalibo. and disembark in crossing toledo, nabas, aklan. take the same route in going to laserna, nabas, akalan.

      entrance fee is same for three (3) cold springs. i know the place coz i am a native of nagustan, nabas, aklan. you will enjoy the place most especially during summer
