Mount Costa in La Trinidad is a mere 15-minute drive from Strawberry Farm and about 30 minutes away from Baguio City Proper. Located in the highlands of Lamtang, Benguet, this 24-garden space first opened in 2017 and is home to a variety of gardens, interactive art installations, picturesque spots, and even playgrounds for kids and adult visitors.
Mount Costa is named in honor of Col. Voltaire Acosta and his wife Cleotilde who bought hectares of land in La Trinidad back in the 70s. Generations later, their descendants decided to develop the land to become a game-changer in the tourism landscape of the Cordilleras. The charm in this huge property lies in its remoteness and grandeur – you wouldn’t expect to see something this beautiful and open in the middle of a winding road!
