7 Must Do Things In Bacoor, The Philippines - Updated 2022

things to do in bacoor philippines

Bacoor is a city in the Philippines, located in the province of Cavite and its total area is 46.17 square kilometers (17.83 square miles). Here is a little story of how the name came to be. In 1671, Spanish troops came into Bacoor and asked the dwellers, who were planting bamboo at the time, what the name of that place was. Now, because of language barriers and difficulties in understanding, they responded with ‘bakood’ which, in Filipino, means ‘bamboo’, as they thought they were being asked what it was that they were planting. The Spanish then pronounced it as ‘bacoor,’ and that is how the name came to be. Here are a bunch of things to do while in Bacoor - let’s have a look.
