Garin Farm is a popular pilgrimage site and tourist destination in San Joaquin, Iloilo. Located at around 50 kilometers away from Iloilo City, it is a great place to relax, retreat, and meditate, as well as to bring yourself closer to nature and to our Creator.

  4. how can we go garin farm if we are in bacolod

    1. Just passing by this page, but I go to and fro Ilo and Bacolod several times. Ride a ferry from Bacolod to Iloilo pier po.(oceanjet/fastcat)
      From the pier, you have 2 options:
      1.) You can ride a taxi to Molo Terminal.(i suggest this if youre going with middle aged adults or older)
      2.) Ride a jeep from pier, ask the driver to drop you near the capitol where you can ride a jeep going to "Villa". Ride a jeep on the "Villa route" and ask driver to drop you at Molo Terminal.
      Then read the rest of the directions in this post. �� I kept it short, u can look up on the internet regarding fares or travel time.
