Chasing waterfalls? No problem, Antipolo is known for having a lot of it. One of the famous spots and easy to travel to is Hinulugang Taktak. It is located near the road so you won't need to walk or trek for hours just to see this.

Hinulugang Taktak Protected Landscape, also known as Hinulugan Taktak, is a protected area located in Rizal, Philippines. Initially assigned as a recreation area, the waterfall area has been designated as a national park by virtue of Republic Act No. 6964 in 1990.

Visit Bosoboso Church

Bosoboso Church - Wikipedia
The Nuestra Señora de la Annunciata Parish Church, also known as Bosoboso Church or Boso-Boso Church, is a Roman Catholic parish church located in Sitio Old Boso-Boso, Barangay San Jose in Antipolo, Rizal, Philippines.

It is one of the oldest churches in the Philippines. The first church was built as a mission church by the Franciscan missionaries in 1669. Originally, it served the Dumagat people of Lanatin and Linotan in the mountains of modern-day Rizal province. The Jesuits eventually took over the mission and the church in 1741. It was turned over to the seculars in 1768 when the Jesuits were expelled from the Philippines.

Appreciate Mount Purro Nature Reserve

Mt. Purro Nature Reserve was built on the humble lands of Antipolo by the heart and hands of the Dumagat Tribe. This place and the movement to plant more trees in the balding mountains of Sierra Madre was inspired by Toto Malvar’s dream to save the environment, create sustainable livelihoods, and share their stories.

There are many delicacies in Antipolo like Kasoy, Suman, Mangga, Balimbing, Coco Jam, Latik, Kalamay, Adobong Kasoy and many more. Many people buy in Antipolo some "pasalubong" after the mass at Antipolo Cathedral.
Suman: A Filipino Artform – backpackerlee
Suman is one of the best delicacies in Antipolo. Suman is made of rice, but it's not an ordinary rice. It's called "malagkit". Suman is one of my favorite delicacies in Antipolo especially when you put sugar on it.
