LAGUNA Tourist Destinations
Laguna lies on the southern shores of Laguna de Bay,  the largest  
lake in the country. On the southern border of the province are Mt. Makiling and Mt. Bnahaw, both are long dormant volcanoes, but still sources of geothermal energy.

Mt. Makiling is popular for the numerous hot springresorts that are found on its slopes.

Pagsanjan Falls, is a popular waterfall that tumbles down a deep gorge in the hills. The eastern portion of Laguna straddles the southernmost portions of the Sierra Madre  mountain range.
