Estancia de Lorenzo
San Mateo, Rizal

Estancia de Lorenzo is both an events place and a nature farm. If you or someone you know is planning an out of town event, this place is perfect! However, if you’re just looking for a weekend getaway, there’s still so much to do at Estancia. Your kids can learn at the mini zoo, swim in the pool, and run at the playparks! Adults can ride the ATV or relax with their Skinfinity services.
