La Union pushed as agri-tourism destination

PUGO, La Union – This town is being pushed as eco-tourism destination.
Last week, Gov. Francisco Ortega III visited PUGAD (Pugo Adventure) , one of  destinations the province is promoting.
Owned by the family of Pugo Mayor Priscilla Martin, PUGAD is not just a resort; it is also a theme park with swimming pools, a 250-meter zipline, sports adventure, and a mini-zoo located on a natural mountain environment.
“I’m here because I heard that a lot people come here to enjoy the great facility and I want to experience for myself because I have a vision for the province to transform La Union to become the heart of agri-tourism in northern Luzon on 2025,” Ortega said.
He said he had been going around the municipalities and checking local tourist spots to find out what can be done to make them competitive.
He said he was impressed with the facilities of PUGAD.
The governor tried the zipline and rappelled.
Ortega said the core strategy is to build a tourism circuit in the entire province, like Pugo which is part the southern-eastern tourism circuit. It includes the municipalities of Rosario, Santo Tomas and Tubao towns.

He said they want the municipalities to complement each other in boosting tourism and developing agriculture.
