Our last and final day of our Ilocos adventure, we bid farewell to Ilocos Norte. We left Aquaseda in Maira-ira Blue Lagoon, Pagudpud and made a stop-over in the ABOT CAVE, the cave is a few meters before reaching the main highway. This is a rock formation with a hole and local folklore says the cave was created by giants.
