Background Information

I don't know much about San Rafael, Bulacan except that it was named after St. Rafael Archangel and is the town of many Resorts, so I had to refer to the official website of San Rafael, Bulacan. It cites the following information:

San Rafael is "located on the northern part of the Province of Bulacan...Its 16,525 hectare land area, which consists of flatlands on its southern part and gently sloping on its northern part, is mostly being cultivated for rice, corn and vegetable production...San Rafael was formerly a part of the Municipality of Baliwag before it was established as a municipality in 1750.During the Spanish Regime until the American Regime, most lands in San Rafael was part of the Hacienda Buenavista.

Since then, municipality has developed into a thriving community."

Tourism in San Rafael

The official website of San Rafael Bulacan further states:

"Tourism in San Rafael has not shown much promise in the past years although there are a number of tourist sites in the municipality. It is now one of the thrusts of the local government and its tourism council to develop its tourism potential.

The tourist sites include the Spanish era San Rafael Church in the town proper, old houses built during the colonial rule and a two feet long footprint near a creek aptly named “Sapang Bakas” where old folks say that it’s the imprint of Bernardo Carpio from old folklores."

Personally, I have observed that local tourists learn about San Rafael in their search for Summer Resorts. The town now has quite a number of beautiful swimming pool resorts. One of the most popular is the 8 Waves Waterpark.
