Baler Travel Guide: Itinerary and Expenses Summary for 2D1N

September 3, 2016

tour package in baler

Day before the trip, I was starting to think that it wouldn’t push through because of the terrible Manila weather. We had a hard time finding a taxi that we thought we wouldn’t make it to our meetup time in Quezon City. Alas, our Baler roadtrip commenced, and it was a pretty exciting weekend.

You can skip to the end of this post and see my Baler travel guide, complete with itinerary and summary of expenses. But you can also read on to know more about our high jinks in detail.

To make things easier for us, we joined a tour organized by Dreams and Destinations Travel . There were four other people in the tour, and I kind of felt sorry for them because there were nine of us. (Thankfully, soon they were laughing at our jokes, too!)

We left stormy Manila at exactly 1:00 AM on a Saturday. Ideally, we should have slept all the way through, but it was a bumpy ride. It was really zigzag roads that kept us awake. Okay, his driving skills, too. Our driver was probably an Formula 1 racer in his previous life or something.

Balete Tree

We arrived at our first stop a few minutes before 6:00 AM–the great Balete Tree ! The Millennium Tree was more breathtaking in real life. I knew it would gigantic, but I didn’t know that it was so big that people can go inside the tree.

Even though it was extremely early in the morning, there are quite a handful of tourists already there.

balete tree in baler, aurora

What got me really excited to see this natural wonder is the fact that it’s the inspiration for the great  balete  tree in the Trese komiks . If you haven’t read that wonderful graphic novel, I’m not gonna spoil you, but you should definitely read it. It was pretty cool to see the tree in real life.

Ermita Hill

According to legends, there was a tsunami that engulfed the whole of Baler eons ago. Only one family survived the disaster, and only because they climbed atop Ermita Hill to not be devoured by the giant waves. The place was named after them, and there were even statues that depict their uphill journey.

tour package in baler

We stayed for less than thirty minutes and proceeded to have breakfast near the Museo de Baler. There’s a row of carinderia open in the early morning and we just randomly choose one to have breakfast.

Diguisit Falls

Immediately after, we proceeded to Diguisit Falls. I was surprised to see that it was right next to the street. Well, we needed to do a little trekking, but it’s still pretty close by. You can even see it while you’re sitting comfortably on the backseat of your car.

tour package in baler

It’s just a small stop, but still, try not to miss it when you visit Baler.

Lukso-Lukso Islets

Just a few minutes away from Diguisit Falls was the Lukso-Lukso Islets. We had quite an ample time to explore the place, but we only stayed for like 15 minutes.

Lukso-Lukso Islets are three little islands found at the southernmost point of the province and just a few minutes away from the town proper of Baler. The place was huge, and it’s just next to the road, too. We even saw it from atop Ermita Hill!

tour package in baler

Museo de Baler

We went back to town for Museo de Baler. Some people on our trip opted out on this one even though it’s already included in the tour package. They either stayed at the van or roamed around the plaza and ate dirty ice cream.

But I’m all about museums and maximizing everything I paid for, y’know?

tour package in baler

Aurora Masion

Our next stop was the Aurora Masion, which was a couple of streets away from Museo de Baler. When our tour guide said Aurora Mansion, I was inspecting something like Malacanang of the North. I was surprised when he lead us to a bahay kubo -like house.

It was the house of Manuel L. Quezon’s wife, Aurora. Of course, it has already underwent numerous renovations, but it hasn’t lost its charm.

There were paintings displayed inside, but it still looks like a normal house.

tour package in baler

Yollie’s Restaurant

At around 10:00 AM, we were done with more than half of our itinerary. Our driver suggested that we had an early lunch instead of going to the Mother Falls on an empty stomach. We weren’t that hungry yet, but we didn’t really have a choice. Bringing food to the falls didn’t seem like a good idea.

Originally we wanted to have lunch at Gerry Shan’s but their buffet dining starts at 11:00 AM. We didn’t have to wait so we opted for Yollie’s Seafood Restaurant, which was just next door. Our second choice deserves some praise though, because we had an extremely filling and delicious lunch for cheap.

tour package in baler

I highly recommend their laing , kaldereta , tuna belly, grilled pusit , and paco salad! Oh, and lots of rice, too.

I’m just happy that my friends were kind enough to let me try their orders, too. That’s basically my definition of #SquadGoals. Hehe.

Ditumabo Falls (Mother Falls)

After eating like queens and kings, we headed next to Ditumabo Falls, or commonly called Mother Falls. I heard it’s where Apocalypse Now  was shot, but I haven’t even seen Apocalypse Now  so let’s not dwell on that.

We had to ride a tricycle then trek for about 20 minutes before we could reach the falls, but all the trekking was worth it! (By the way, if your tour operator tells you that only tricycles can enter the jump-off and vans cannot, don’t believe them. We had to ride a tricycle but when we reached the parking lot it was full of parked vans.)

I was extremely unprepared for the walking. It was that time of the month for me, and trekking while its drizzling wasn’t my idea of a perfect day. But the views were amazing and I had amazing company. I couldn’t let the day go to waste.

tour package in baler

I didn’t get to swim that day so I made a vow to return and feel the icy cold water on my skin. My friends seemed to have a great time swimming, and I was sitting on one off the giant rocks, sulking. I’m coming back, I swear.

I think we spent more time trekking back and forth than actually staying at the falls. But there’s nothing else to do but swim. Unfortunately, the weather was getting worse, with the rain not abating. So the icy cold water plus the chilly weather didn’t allow us to stay too long. I guess I need to come back on a sunny day.

Check-in at S.M.A.R.T. Beach House

After a long day of jumping from one tourist spot to the next, it was finally time to go our hotel. We had no sleep and extremely tired, so we pretty much slept all the way from Ditumabo Falls to our hotel. Or maybe it was just me. I slept like a log.

S.M.A.R.T. Beach House is a beachside hotel at Sabang Beach. It has a pretty convenient location, and we only needed to walk a little to reach restaurants and surf shops.

tour package in baler

Dinner at Baler Surfer Grill

Only five of us had the energy to go to dinner that night. We walked leisurely with no place in mind. We were hungry and we ended up eating at the first place that caught our attention, which was this yellow Volkswagen turned into a grill:

(Read my full review: Where to Eat i Baler, Aurora: Baler Surfer Grill )

Sunrise at Sabang Beach

Surprise, surprise! There was no sun. Because of the weather, the clouds were obscuring the sun and we didn’t get a proper sunrise.

We woke up at around 5:00 AM, and Stan and Pao had already toured around Baler. There weren’t a lot of people at the beach, and it absolutely looked perfect. Despite not really seeing the sun rise, the view still looked pretty amazing, right?

tour package in baler

We had an early start, which was what we preferred for the long day ahead of us.

Surfing at Sabang Beach

Right after breakfast, we went back to our rooms to be ready for the main reason we went to Baler–surfing! Up until that point, I still wasn’t decided to surf, but it seemed like a pity if I wouldn’t even give it a try.

I think Stan and Elzer were all chummy with the hotel staff that we got a discount for the surfing lesson. I blogged all about our surfing experience on my previous post. Katie was the only one who didn’t surf, but she was there in the water with us, cheering us on as we fall from our surfboards.

tour package in baler

There were supposed to be no waves in August, but because of the tropical storm, we were lucky enough to have an amazing day for surfing. I think it was good that we went there during off-season, because the waves during surfing season would probably devour me.

The view was fantastic that day and made for some really good photos. But of course, I prefer posting the weird ones.

Buffet Lunch at Gerry Shan’s Place

Our van picked us up from the hotel quite early. Since we washed and packed up right after surfing, we were ready to go even before 11:00 AM. We didn’t mind the early check-out, though, since we were eager to arrive in Manila as early as possible.

After picking us up from S.M.A.R.T. Beach House, we asked our driver to drive us to Gerry Shan’s Place . We were free to choose wherever we’d eat our lunch. This time we were just on time to be one of the first customers that day. Buffet was 200 per person, which was quite cheap considering the quality and taste of the food they serve. And believe, we loved everything .

tour package in baler

I highly recommend the sisig, papaitan, kare-kare, and crispy shrimp. They serve unlimited iced tea, too.

Baler Travel Guide

Two-day itinerary.

Here’s our weekend itinerary in Baler. On our next visit, we plan to do more surfing than exploring. Yep, we enjoyed it so much that we plan to go back and surf some more.

Baler Expenses Summary

Being an awful budget planner, I challenged myself not to spend more than 4,000, and I did it! It was really the food allowance that cost us the most.

Where to Eat in Baler

There are plenty of places to enjoy great Filipino food, but for my taste, you’ve got to hit a couple of spots. First, I recommend checking out Gerry’s Chinese and Seafood Restaurant. Fresh seafood on the coast? Of course.

Buffet Lunch at Gerry’s Chinese and Seafood Restaurant

Locals recommend it, and the prices are reasonable. If you’re looking for something up a level, check out Bahia de Baler. For something with a Western flair and a good place at the beach, Bay’s Inn has reasonable prices and a great location.

Planning your Trip to Baler

Once you’re in Baler, you’ll probably find many options that will pull you in many directions. If you’re a surfer, you’ll head to Sabang Beach. Near the beach are many surfboard rental places if you didn’t bring your board or want to try it out. Sabang is known to have a friendly touch for beginners.

Inside Dona Aurora Aragon Quezon House

I recommend the beach, but you should also travel inland and go for a freshwater swim at Culayan Falls near San Luis. Ditumabo Falls is a bit more dramatic, also near San Luis.

Mother Falls (photo by Chris Juloya)

Local history is fascinating and dates back to 1609, so check out Baler’s Museum, Ermita Hill, and give yourself a day to wander the Baler historical trail . The Baler Catholic Church has been renovated and is a nice excellent stop.

If you want to explore the rainforest to see wildlife and the beautiful canopy, you should do the Baler Adventure tour .

Best Things to Do and See in Baler

Diguisit anyaw islets.

Diguisit Anyaw Islets

Said to be a different experience between low and high tide changes; those who may have experienced going to the place during its low tide will be able to climb its rocky formations, which will have been a great experience. Otherwise, climbing can be challenging as some rocks are submerged in water. Luckily, our experience is of the former.

Diguisit Falls

Diguisit Falls

Right across the Diguisit beach area, you can find a trail to Diguisit Waterfalls. Just don’t visit it during summertime to avoid disappointment.

Balete Park in Maria Aurora

600 Years Old Balete Tree

This park is famous for its 600-year-old balete tree. Currently the largest tree of its kind in Asia, it would take 60 adults, holding one another at arms, to encircle its gigantic trunk.

Location: Maria Aurora Entrance Fee: P10 per person

Tibag – Sabang  Hanging Bridge in Brgy. Zabali

Hanging Bridge in Brgy. Zabali

Located at Barangay Zabali in Baler, the Tibag – Sabang hanging bridge is now gaining popularity among tourists who loves a little bit of adventure.

Church of Baler

Church of Baler

The San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Church is the Catholic Church of Baler and was recently renovated. It looks crisp and clean on the outside, painted a soft minty green, and is nicely painted and decorated on the inside with an elaborate altar.

Dona Aurora Aragon Quezon House

Dona Aurora Aragon Quezon House

If you’ve read my blog before, you know I’m into the heritage houses of past famous families of the Philippines. The drama surrounding the assassination of Dona Aurora and her daughter is well-known in the Philippines, which is why the province is named after her. Located right in front of the Church of Baler, the Dona Aurora Aragon Quezon House is a rebuilt replica at the corner of San Luis St and Rizal St.

Baler 400 Years Monument

Baler 400 Years Monument

Built in 2011, the 400 years monument was created to celebrate the 400 years that Baler has existed. The actual anniversary was in 2009, but the memorial was unveiled two years later. It’s a 40-foot-tall monument. It comprises four pillars, representing the four hundred years of Baler Township.

The Museo de Baler

Museo de Baler

Quezon Park is an excellent place and home to a few other sights, but the Museo de Baler is a central destination. A historical tale of the town is represented with photographs of provincial leaders, President Quezon, and his family, and photos from the Japanese, Spanish, and American periods of Baler’s history.

Visiting Museo de Baler is a great way to learn more about Baler’s rich history and culture. As you walk through the museum, you’ll be able to explore a variety of artifacts and exhibits that tell the story of Baler’s past. From its early beginnings to its present-day significance, the museum offers a wealth of information about the town’s journey.

You’ll also find a special exhibit dedicated to the legendary “Siege of Baler,” a battle in 1898 between Spanish forces and Filipino troops. This exhibit highlights the bravery and courage of the Filipino soldiers and their eventual victory against the Spanish. Whether you’re a history buff or simply curious about Baler’s past, Museo de Baler is an excellent place to explore and better understand the town’s heritage.

Location: Quezon Street, Baler, Aurora Entrance Fee: P30 per person Open Daily from 8AM to 5PM

Ermita Hill

Overlooking Baler Bay from Ermita Hill

Ermita Hill is incredibly excellent for the view you can see from the park. Ermita Hill is on a kind of small peninsula, a quiet place that juts out above the gorgeous waters below. Views of Baler Bay and Sabang Beach are picturesque from the view decks.

Visit Ditumabo or Mother Falls

Ditumabo Falls

In the town of San Luis, the hidden beauty of Aurora is the grandest of all waterfalls in the province: the Ditumabo Falls, commonly known as Mother Falls. The waterfalls are some 15-meter high, dropping to a small reservoir, creating a green-colored natural swimming pool that can accommodate over 100 persons.

Location: San Luis, Aurora Entrance Fee: P30 per person / Guide Fee P200, good for 10 pax

DIY Travel Tips

Like many places, Baler has a lot to offer that you won’t necessarily be able to plan for. I like to go to Baler because it’s always got a surprise waiting for me. Sometimes the surprise is a visit to a beach I’d never seen before – like Amper, Borlongan, or Cemento – and other times, it’s finding a place to eat recommended by someone else staying in town. There are a lot of great day trips, so it’s easy to plan things to be complete, but resist the temptation and leave some of your time wide open.

I think it's famous for travelers that my friend said a lot of people ate there that day. Thank you! Your blog is a big help, will recommend this to my friends.

Facade of Baler Church

The San Luis Obispo de Tolosa Parish, or more commonly known as Baler Church, was constructed back in 1611. It first stood on the site of an important battle called the "Siege of Baler" which took place during the Philippine Revolution.

The church was initially made from bamboo and nipa. Years after, it was renovated using stones and rocks that were held together by lime and honey. However, the church was later destroyed by a massive tidal wave known as "Tromba Marina" in 1735. Soon after that natural disaster, locals rebuilt the chapel on the highest point in San Luis Street in Barangay Buhangin, where it currently stands.

During the Spanish period in the country, Spanish forces made the church their garrison until they surrendered it in 1899. Aside from this, Baler Church was also the home of a famous large bell called La Campana De Baler. Fray Jose de Esperagoza brought it to the province in the 17th century. The bell later became well-known for its loud echoing sounds that even reached the neighboring towns of San Luis, Maria, and Dipaculao. 

In light of its cultural significance in Baler, the National Historical Institute proclaimed it as a historical landmark in 2000.   

11. Baler Hanging Bridge 

Baler Hanging Bridge above a river

The Baler Hanging Bridge is situated along Zabali Road and connects the barangays of Tibang and Sabang. The bridge is made of wooden planks and railings that are suspended above a wide river by sturdy metal cables. It measures about a meter in width and is over a hundred meters long.  

While locals often use it for their daily errands, it has become one of the well-known tourist attractions in Baler, Aurora over the years due to the stunning views it offers. As you make your way from one end of the bridge to the other, you will be able to get a panoramic view of the river and the vast mountainscape in the distance. Travelers can also catch a glimpse of the river's opening that connects to Baler Bay. 

Visitors who traverse the bridge are treated to a refreshing breeze as well, thanks to its position. Before reaching the other end, you can also take the time to take photos of the beautiful scenery around you. On either end of the walkway are a couple of souvenir shops that feature local delicacies and trinkets that showcase the area's culture. 

10. Baler Lighthouse

Another popular spot that provides tourists with stunning views of Baler's natural wonders is the Baler Lighthouse, one of the top lighthouses in the Philippines. This white structure sits on one of the hills of Sitio Tibag. After arriving at the parking area, visitors will have to hike up the hill to reach the towering structure.  

Once you reach the top of the hill, you are immediately rewarded with a stunning view of Baler Bay's deep blue waters. You can also see Diguisit Beach from the hill's peak. For travelers looking for an even better vantage point, you can climb up the steps that circle the lighthouse to reach its top.  

From the top, you can feel the sea breeze blowing while enjoying the panoramic view of the bay and the nearby hills. You can also see the structure's huge light and solar panels that power it. While it no longer serves as a beacon for ships coming to Baler, tourists still drop by to take in the view. 

9. Museo de Baler 

Immerse yourself in the rich culture of the province by visiting their local museum, Museo de Baler. One of the must-visit museums in the Philippines, the two-story building stands in Quezon Park in Barangay Poblacion. Even before entering the museum, you can already see a beautiful artwork on its red brick exterior. 

The installation depicts crucial moments and individuals throughout the province's history.  Meanwhile, a statue of the late Philippine President Manuel L. Quezon, a native of Baler, sits in the center of the park. 

Inside the museum, you will see exhibits and several historical artifacts that date back to the Spanish colonization period in the Philippines. Among these items are old letters from missionaries who lived in the region from the early 1600s up to the late 1890s. 

On its second floor, visitors can find pieces relating to the Siege of Baler. These artworks include paintings of those who took part in the fight and those who survived it as well. Along with the historical pieces, the museum also features more contemporary pieces of art. The most notable ones are the props from the 2008 Filipino drama film named after the province.  

8. Dona Aurora Aragon-Quezon Home

A few minutes away from the museum is another historic site: a replica of the ancestral home of Aurora Quezon, the wife of the late president Manuel L. Quezon. The cement and wooden home is situated on the corner of Rizal Street and San Luis street. It also features a roof made from dried nipa leaves, which was often used for traditional homes in the Philippines. 

However, the house is not an exact copy of Aurora's original home, as local authorities recreated it with sturdier material. Despite this, it still features many items, such as a coal-heated iron that were likely used by Aurora's family back in the day. The interior also houses a large colored painting of Aurora and the late president. 

While Aurora was widely known as the second First Lady of the Philippines, she was an important historical figure in her own right as well. Aurora gained the respect of her fellow Baler natives and other Filipinos through her various humanitarian efforts. Among these was her time as the first Chairperson of the Philippine National Red Cross and her involvement in advocating for Filipino women's right to vote.  

In honor of her notable contributions, the province where Baler is located, Aurora, was named after her.  

View of the Balete Tree's roots and canopy

The Balete Tree in Aurora is known for being the biggest of its kind in the whole continent of Asia. This enormous tree is cared for in a park inside the municipality of Maria Aurora. This tree has been around for over 600 years and has grown to about 200 feet. 

Balete trees are also often regarded as homes of fairies and other magical creatures in Philippine mythology. Whether or not you believe in myths, you can slip past an opening between the roots of the tree here to inspect for yourself. 

The tree is so huge that several people can fit inside its interior of twisted roots. The interior appears almost like an otherworldly destination, as light can only come in from the gaps between the entangling roots. 

From inside the tree, you can climb up the tangle of roots to get a closer look at the tree's large crown. However, scaling the tree from the inside involves squeezing through tight gaps. Aside from this, travelers can also climb the tree from the outside by clinging to the sturdy roots that make up the gigantic evergreen.  

6. Diguisit and Aniao Islet 

One rock formation in Diguisit Beach, Baler

Diguisit Beach is one of the popular surfing spots in Baler and is located about 11 KM from the town proper. In addition to the constant waves that are great for surfing, this white sand beach also boasts unique rock formations and crystal clear water. 

The most famous formations here are the Aniao Islets, which are two small islands. These islets were naturally shaped by the strong waves that slam against the shore when the winds are strong. Surrounding these sturdy formations were rocky landscapes that become pools of cool water whenever the tide is low.  

  • Book a Dingalan Aurora day tour

Each islet is also home to small patches of greenery that make their profile even more unique. The islets make for amazing photos at sunset when the tide is low, and the orange-pinkish hues reflect on the pools of water surrounding them. Aside from the natural formations, Diguisit Beach is also known as an ideal location for snorkeling from May to November when the winds are weaker.  

5. Ampere Beach and Rock Formations 

Rock formations at Ampere Beach, Baler

Another destination that features rock formations is the Ampere Beach, just west of Baler Beach. In contrast to the finer sands of most beaches that line Baler Bay, this spot boasts a shoreline comprised mainly of different-sized pebbles. While it is not an ideal swimming spot due to the strong waves that lap the shore, it still attracts tourists thanks to its unique landscape. 

Aside from admiring the sturdy rock formations that jut from the beach's waters, tourists can also make their own "rock formations" with the smooth pebbles that make up the shore. Feel free to get creative as you stack rocks on top of each other, and make sure to snap a photo of your small towers for a unique souvenir! Though the pebble beach and the large rock formations are the main draws of this attraction, travelers can find a lesser-known spot just past the karst-like walls. 

Beyond the rock walls, you can find a cave. Locals are said to forecast the weather by measuring how loud the waves slam against the interior of the cave. The louder it gets, the worse the weather would supposedly be.  

4. Ermita Hill 

The entrance to Ermita Hill

Ermita Hill is a historical and natural landmark located in Barangay Zabali. Its cultural significance dates back to 1735, when a large tidal wave called Tromba Marina struck the region. During the natural disaster, the residents headed up the hill to seek refuge from the fast-rising waters that were engulfing the homes. 

However, only a few families managed to make it up the hill in time, while the strong surge of water wiped out the rest. To commemorate the hardships that the natives had to overcome, statues depicting people helping each other scale the hill were placed here. Most of the artworks were put along the cemented path that leads up to the hilltop. 

Once you reach the top, you will enter a deck that provides a panoramic view of Baler Bay, its surrounding forestry, and the vast Pacific Ocean. Take your time to relax and take photos before heading back down. There are also gazebos where you can sit and take in the view and a modest chapel where you can say a prayer. 

3. Dicasalarin Cove 

View of Dicasalrin Cove from a nearby hill

Dicasalarin Cove is a private-owned beach that attracts tourists with its pristine waters and stunning white sand beach. The beach is surrounded by natural landscapes that often break the waves, making the water here calmer than most beaches in Baler. Since the area is managed by the owners of Costa Pacifica, a nearby resort, travelers must first register here to reach the cove. 

The cove sits about 10 KM away from the resort and best accessed by car or renting out tricycles or motorcycles. After arriving at the cove, you will be greeted by a picturesque shoreline that stretches for miles on both sides. Unwind and enjoy the cove's cool waters by going for a swim or snorkeling.

Aside from the cove's shore, travelers can also head up to the nearby lighthouse to get a beautiful view of the bay. Guests also frequent the lighthouse because of its more modern and geometric shape. If you want to extend your stay on this secluded cove, you can also rent tents, air beds, and sleeping bags. You can set up camp along the shoreline to fall asleep to the gentle sound of waves lapping the beach.  

2. Ditumabo Falls 

View of Ditumabo Falls from a natural pool

The Ditumabo Falls is a grand waterfall that stands at about 140 feet tall. Locals commonly refer to it as The Mother Falls, largely due to its sheer size, especially when compared to other waterfalls in the province. Though it is located in the neighboring town of San Luis, this attraction is often visited by tourists when staying in Baler since it is only about 15 KM from Baler's town proper. 

Nestled in a lush forest, travelers first have to trek through rivers and rocky paths to reach the majestic waterscape. The trek can also prove to be difficult as the rocks in the rivers can be slippery. While the journey to the falls is not smooth, just getting to see it up close makes the trip worthwhile. 

After arriving at the falls, you will be greeted by natural pools that the clear, ice-cold water drops into. The rocky basin is large and is ideal for swimming, so make sure to take a dip and take in the grandeur of this natural wonder.  

View of Sabang Beach's shoreline

Sabang Beach is a gray sand beach that is widely regarded as the birthplace of surfing in Baler. Thanks to the frequent waves that approach the shore, it is a great place to learn how to surf for the first time. Various shops and resorts in Baler that line the shore offer lessons for beginners and even more advanced surfers.  It is one of the top places to visit in Baler, Aurora.

Baler natives began to surf in 1976, when the epic war movie "Apocalypse Now" filmed in Charlie's Point, a resort along this beach. Soon after the production wrapped up filming, locals taught themselves how to ride the waves with surfboards that the movie's crew had left behind. Since then, more and more people come to this beach to learn as well. 

Thanks to the large crowds of surfers that the waves here attract, the beach scene is often lively. After you've had your fill of surfing, you can then enjoy the delicious cuisine served at the beachside restaurants. Travelers can also stay until after the sun sets to partake in the local nightlife scene or to simply go on a stroll along the two-kilometer-long stretch of sand.

Along with surfing, guests often come to this beach to marvel at the stunning colors of a sunrise. Since the beach faces the east and opens to the Pacific Ocean, travelers can get an unobstructed view of the sun as it breaks through the night sky and paints it in warm, orange hues.

Yankees' DJ LeMahieu: Will travel on road trip

Share video.

Manager Aaron Boone said LeMahieu (foot) will travel with the Yankees on their road trip this week to Cleveland and Toronto, Bryan Hoch of MLB.com reports.

LeMahieu took batting practice Wednesday and has been incorporating more baseball activities into his rehab regimen, and his ability to join the team on its road trip is a sign that he isn't too far off from starting a rehab assignment. The veteran infielder has been out since late March with a bone bruise and non-displaced fracture in his right foot.

Want to see the next total solar eclipse in 2026? An expert recommends booking travel now.

  • 2026 will be Europe's first total solar eclipse in 27 years.
  • Travelers worldwide will likely head to Spain, Iceland, and Greenland for the event.
  • A hotel expert encouraged travelers to start planning and booking their trips now.

Insider Today

It'll be two decades before the next total solar eclipse hits the US .

Another option: hop on a plane to Europe and turn the 2026 total solar eclipse into a viewing vacation.

Eclipse cartographer Michael Zeiler at GreatAmericanEclipse.com told Space.com that up to 3.7 million people likely traveled for the solar eclipse on Monday.

HotelPlanner's chief communication officer, Philip Ballard, told Business Insider that the eclipse was a major revenue generator for many cities. For places like Austin, Texas, and Rochester, New York, it could have created $1 billion in revenue, Vox reported.

"I would say the total solar eclipse has become a global phenomenon," Ballard said.

Ballard added that the next solar eclipse , which will pass through Iceland, Greenland, and Spain on August 12, 2026, could result in similar tourism and revenue influxes.

And if travelers are considering a trip to Europe for the solar eclipse, Ballard recommends planning your trip now.

Determine your eclipse viewing destination

According to Space.com , 2026 will be Europe's first total solar eclipse in 27 years. Its path will go through Greenland, parts of western Iceland, and northern Spain.

Choosing where to watch the eclipse will be a tough and important decision for travelers.

Iceland and Greenland have some positives. These regions will experience longer totality times, so viewers can watch the eclipse longer. Plus, the sun will be higher in the sky, so finding a spot to watch the eclipse will be less challenging, Space.com reported.

The downside is that these regions are more likely to be cloudy, according to the outlet.

Related stories

While parts of Spain are likely to offer clearer skies, the eclipse's timing will be shorter and closer to the horizon, which means travelers will need to plan and track down a viewing location with unobstructed views of the western horizon, Space.com reported.

Regardless of the destination, according to the outlet, one bonus is that the strongest meteor shower in the Northern Hemisphere will happen the following night, so travelers can pack two events into one trip.

Book flights and hotels far in advance

Ballard encouraged people to book their hotels in their destination of choice as far in advance as possible.

"You should start looking now and booking hotels now because those cities in the path are already going to be at peak season," Ballard said.

Ballard said it's similar to when a Super Bowl city is determined or a Taylor Swift tour date is announced — you immediately see spikes in bookings. He predicts hotel occupancy rates will hit near-record highs, and room prices may double around the solar eclipse date.

Ballard's general rule of thumb is to book international travel at least three months in advance, but since this is such an anticipated event, booking earlier is smart. His advice is to start discussing plans with friends and family. If you decide on a destination, book a refundable room to keep your options open if plans change.

Regarding purchasing a plane ticket, a study from Expedia states that international travel's sweet spot is at least six months in advance.

According to Expedia, travelers who book six months in advance save an average of 10% more than travelers booking within two months or less.

Skip the hassle of planning altogether and book a solar eclipse tour

Another option is to let a tour operator do the work for you. A handful of tour companies have seen the increased interest in the solar eclipse and launched tours designed around the event.

These tours will have predetermined locations to view the eclipse, hotel blocks reserved, and itineraries highlighting both the region and the eclipse.

However, these can sell out quickly. For example, Space and Telescope created an 11-day tour of Spain around viewing the 2026 solar eclipse. The tour has already sold out as of Wednesday, and the waitlist is full.

Other operators, such as Wilderness Travel and Eclipse Traveler, have similar itineraries for the total eclipse in 2026.
