During the opening of Gaisano Capital Oton, I got a chance to visit Villa Rica Palamunitan, just a walking distance along J.C. Zulueta St. Oton, Iloilo.
Villa Rica has fishing amenities, and they also sell fresh and live fishes. If you are fund of fishing, enjoy the amenities for only Php25 entrance fee with free softdrink, ice tea, or mineral water (just choose one). I like the place, it is situated inside a big fish pond, veranda chairs and tables are available in the cottage for dining.
Fishing rental is Php10, and bait is Php5. Fish catches are weighted out and bought on per kilo basis. Fresh Tilapia is Php150 per kilo, Fresh Bulgan is Php250 per kilo, and Fresh Bangus is Php160 per kilo. All fish catches are considered bought and are not allowed to be returned or exchanged. House Rules should be followed upon entrance. You can also request for cleaning and grilling of the fish catches.
A Private Cottage is also available at a rate of Php300 good for 8-10 persons, perfect for family bonding and friend’s hang out. If you will be renting a cottage, the entrance fee is free, and fishing is free also. You can order for food, and it will be prepared by Danny’s Talabahan beside Villa Rica, a variety of seafoods are available to choose from.
They also accept exclusive and private use of cottages for Php750 good for 20-25 persons, with free entrance, free 20 regular softdrinks, ice tea, or mineral water, and a free fishing.
