About Antipolo and Places to Visit
Mercury Jets provides private jet charter flights to and from Antipolo.
Antipolo is a major city in the Calabarson region of the Philippines, with a population of over six hundred thousand. Antipolo is located in the northern part of the province on the slopes of the Sierra Madre mountain range. A large part of the city occupies a plateau at an altitude of 150 meters above sea level, which offers a magnificent view of Manila lying in the distance. The city’s name comes from the word “tipolo,” as the locals called the bread tree that grew in abundance in what is now Antipolo.
Today, Antipolo is called the pilgrim capital and is home to an image of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Cathedral. Antipolo is considered sacred to all Filipino Catholics since the Spanish colonization; on Good Friday, people ask for blessings. It is also customary for residents to be blessed when buying a new car – it is believed to give safety to both the car and the passengers. At the foot of the Sierra Madre mountain range is another popular tourist spot for biking or hiking, Mount Purro Park.
Another suitable place for walking and relaxing in the fresh air is the local nature reserve, which covers a considerable area and is intended for mountain biking. Antipolo’s most famous natural attraction is the Hinulugang Taktak Falls, part of the national park. According to legend, once upon a time, residents of the surrounding villages sunk a huge bell here because no one could stand the sound of it. Moreover, an interesting place in Antipolo is the Jardin de Miramar Park, with a reconstruction of Noah’s Ark, divided into several themed areas.
Ten miles from the center of Antipolo is Ninoy Aquino International Airport (MNL, RPLL), a large civilian airport and a major Philippine air harbor perfectly suited for private charters.
