Aurora is a province of the Philippines located in the eastern part of Luzon Island. Its capital is the town of Baler. The province was named after President Manuel L. Quezon’s wife, Aurora. Quezon, the first president of the Philippine Commonwealth, was born in Baler.
Beyond the lush forest of the Sierra Madre Mountains lies a splendid land so unbelievably rich and untouched. The Sierra Madre Mountain range covers a large part of the province of Aurora. In fact, next to the Aurora coastline, this is the place where flora and fauna are most concentrated. Waterfalls, rivers, crystal clear streams of varying sizes are located within, if not adjacent to the area of the Sierra Madre Mountain.
Special interest trips such as mountain climbing, safari, bird watching, ecological studies, or simply picnicking could be rolled into one by taking trails recommended by local nature trekkers in the area. When the northeast monsoon winds blow and the usual tranquil white beaches are transformed into a frenzy of angry waves. It is time to come to Aurora to ride the waves on a surfboard.
