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”
