Infinity Farm in Baco, Oriental Mindoro
Recently, I joined the first leg of the Philippine Tourism Influencer’s Program and one of the places we visited is the Infinity Farm in the beautiful town of Baco in Oriental Mindoro.
The program aims to develop and promote lesser-known attractions and activities in various provinces. This tourism program also aims to encourage tourists to explore new destinations apart from the frequently visited tourist spots in the country.
The Department of Tourism (DOT) and Tourism Promotions Board (TPB) ensure that they remain committed to their slow but sure approach in re-opening the heavily affected tourism industry of the Philippines. One of their strategies of approach is to promote and market the compliance of several tourism enterprises and establishments with the current safety protocols to regain the people’s confidence to travel again.

One of nature’s best-kept secrets can be found at the heart of a small town in Oriental Mindoro. Nestled not too far away from the pristine white beaches of Puerto Galera, Infinity Farm offers a whole new flavor of fun and excitement to everyone who loves a sweet nature getaway. The main attraction of the Infinity Farm is the cascading waterfalls that form majestic natural pools where guests can freely relax and enjoy a picnic together with friends and family.
Infinity Farm did an amazing job of transforming the place into a tourism haven without having a hugely negative impact on the overall ecosystem of the place. The name “Infinity Farm” truly resembles the aim of the resort which is to offer endless fun and relaxation activities for everyone who wants to be closer to nature. Aside from swimming and chilling out in the natural pools, guests can also level up their game and take on even more exciting adventures! From hiking, camping, waterfall climbing, and many more, this is your golden chance to explore nature at its absolute best, so better grab the opportunity!
Aside from the main attraction of the farm which is the cascading river, Infinity Farm was also able to utilize several parts of the location to bring new flavors of fun to everyone! You can visit Billy’s Den and meet Billy himself! Billy is an Albino Burmese Python, he’s one of Infinity Farm’s babies. Don’t be afraid of Billy despite his appearance, alright? There’s also the famous Love Lock Bridge where you can safely walk around and admire the beauty of nature right before your eyes. Oh, and it’s perfect for Instagrammable photos, too! With those and many more scenic locations in Infinity Farm, be sure to make the most out of them and fill up your feed.
Infinity Farm is actually a sister of the iconic Infinity Resort & Spa of Puerto Galera. It’s not too far away from the resort itself so if you’re planning to have a side trip from the tropical paradise of Puerto Galera and focus all your attention and energy on the lush rainforest and majestic mountains in front of it, then Infinity Farm is indeed the perfect choice for you! Endless fun, limitless excitement, and infinite adventures. Those are the things that you only need to worry about here at Infinity Farm.
Just like what I’ve mentioned earlier, Infinity Farm did an amazing job transforming the place into a tourism haven without harming the natural environment. The resort is situated in a natural rainforest so expect to encounter a rough trail en route to the hidden gem of Baco, Oriental Mindoro. But don’t worry! Everything will be worth it.
As you come closer to the place, you can gradually hear the eargasmic gush of water flowing through beautiful rocks along the river. Naturally, you’d expect to see a typical farm with all the grasses, farm animals, and such, right? Well, buckle up because you’re in for a surprise! The first things you’ll see are the mesmerizing cascades of water flowing through the rocky river. Mind you, these are crystal clear, sky blue, cold waters coming from the majestic mountain upstream. What’s more alluring for me is when the waters gush through the rock formations and appear bright white that it would simply make your jaws drop.
It is said that the owner of the Infinity Farm initially envisioned the place to be a typical farm where people would be able to pick fresh fruits and vegetables all year round. Well, obviously that changed when people couldn’t stop being mesmerized by the nearby river. So, they decided to go on with the idea of transforming it into a tourism haven. Hence, we’re all now able to enjoy the amazing creation that is Infinity Farm!
Where to eat?
Infinity Farm was able to set up cottages and picnic areas where guests can take a break, eat a delicious meal, or just chill around as they marvel at the mesmerizing view of the cascading streams of water.
Just a reminder, bringing your own food and drinks is strictly not allowed inside the farm. There are food stalls available inside with a wide selection of food and drinks.
