Laguna, a province in the Southern Tagalog Region of the Philippines, is a popular hot springs destination. Almost completely surrounded by the Laguna de Bay, the largest lake in the country, Laguna is only about an hour drive away from the southern Manila cities Paranaque and Las Pinas. The province is famous for its many resorts and hot springs.
