NATIVIDAD- This 4th class municipality in the 6th District of Pangasinan located at the foot of the Caraballo mountains is fast becoming a tourist destination, both by local residents and foreigners.
Its tourism potentials have been harnessed by Mayor Rodrigo “Cocoy” Rafael, who sought the help of the town’s expatriates to fund various tourism sites notably the Sky Plaza, and by using local funds.
Mayor Rafael said the town is gaining popularity because of its natural picnic grounds as well as man-made resorts owned by private individuals in the town.
” Natividad has a lot of tourism areas that are accessible to those who wanted to visit the town. Viray Bridge connects Natividad to eight barangays (villages) and a gateway to San Quintin, Umingan and Nueva Ecija. It could be reached by any land transportation,” he said.
Among the resorts that are now operating in the town are the Summer Park Resort in Poblacion West, SM (Sirok Mangga) Resort in Bachelor East and Cramby’s Pool, also in Batchelor East.
These resorts have swimming pools, picnic grounds, cottages and rest houses where visitors can stay overnight. Function rooms are also available for weddings, baptismal parties and other sponsored events.
Aside from the private resorts, there are also natural pools like those in Batchelor East, San Macario Norte  and in Sitio San Jose, where picnic enthusiasts could while away their time free of charge.
The Turod (Hills) in Sitio Malasin, San Macario Sur has became the favorite destination of photo enthusiasts because of its panoramic view and natural beauty.
Equally breathtaking is the Maranum Falls located in Batchelor East, which is a two-kilometer walk about 30 minutes from Pila Water Resort.
Mayor Rafael said the Sky Plaza is still the major and premier tourist destination of the town showcasing its aerial view and neighboring towns.
The Sky Plaza has a function hall that could accommodate 200 guests for seminars and retreats, a Lourdes Grotto, Ayat ni Apo Hesus at the top of the mountain that could be reached by climbing 272 concrete steps.
There is also a 182- meter zipline for the adventurous visitors.
The town also boasts of its century old trees preserved for years in the Poblacion area.
Mayor Rafael said that the town is embarking on its “One Town, One Product” (OTOP), which is cassava that could be cooked and prepared in many ways.It is now a source of livelihood for the residents of the town.
