Amadeo Travel Guide: 4 reviews and 14 photos

Coffee Capital of Cavite

Only 10 minutes from Tagaytay is the small town of Amadeo, a big-timer in coffee production. As the number 1 coffee producer in the province of Cavite, top coffee manufacturing firms in the country have given Amadeo their thumbs-up.

What I find "cute" about the town is its pride as coffee producer which shows in the giant coffee kettle and cup statues infront of the municipal building and boundary marker in the highway.

Site of Pahimis Festival

As the number 1 coffee producer of Cavite, Amadeo holds the Pahimis Festival annualy. It is a thanksgiving offering to God for the bounty He has gifted Amadeo town & people.

One morning, the town celebration was featured on GMA7's morning show, "Unang Hirit". We hurried to the site, since our house is only about an hour's drive. Unfortunately, the program was over when we arrived, and display booths were not yet ready at the Plaza. But we were happily received by representatives of Great Taste, a coffee producer/marketer who is a partner of Pahimis Festival. We were invited to return the following day and the weekend, but we already have other pre-scheduled travel...Maybe, next year, I'll be able to share more pictures.

Eco-Tourism Zone

Amadeo is aggressively launching its eco-tourism zone. Beautiful natural formations like the Balite Falls were developed by the local government to promote eco-tourism.

A missed activity led to a wonderful discovery! Since we were in the area, I asked about the Balite Falls which I read about in the internet. To our pleasant surprise, the road to the said falls have been paved and so we went for an ocular survey.

Balite Falls may not be majestic as the other waterfalls in the country, but its petite beauty as a natural water formation amidst the lush greens is something I can positively predict to be a popular tourist destination.
