Not sure why it was called Paraiso ni Anton. Also, who is Anton? He is not even San Anton, thinking he might be a saint.

But the place for me is quite solemn if there are only few people around. This is our next destination from Patapat Bridge. It's like where two mountains meet as you can see in one of the pictures (less the bus) and at the foot is a grotto of Virgin Mary. You can also hear a stream nearby, i had the sounds recorded. It makes me feel relax and alas, sleepy. According to Manong (our tour guide), the water from that area connects to Kaibigan Falls. One can do trekking from that place going to the falls but extreme caution is advised as the stones are really slippery. So we need to travel by land if we wish to go there.

In this location, local travellers drop by to drink the fresh water from the stream while others go to the other side of the road to buy some souvenirs. However, the prices are quite high compared to buying it in the local market in Pagudpud town.

Address: Paraiso ni Anton, Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte
Directions: Just follow the road from Patapat Bridge going to Isabela. You won't miss this!
