Jump to: navigation, search

Lezo is a municipality in the province of Aklan, Philippines.

Get in[edit]

From Kalibo there are several Multi-cabs that go to Lezo - it is about a 20 minute trip. Catch the bus at the West Aklan Jeepney Terminal just off C. Lacerna Street. Also for about 200 php you can find a Tricycle driver that will bring you right there - if you do this you should likely negotiate for him to wait for you, as tricycles out of Lezo are harder to find.

See[edit][add listing]

Lezo is a small town, but there are still things to see. First visit the Lezo Plaza. The home of most events in the town, you will likely find kids playing basketball. The Town Hall is beside the church, and is a new building. You can go in and up the stairs to the balcony and view the plaza and other municipal buildings. Just down the street from the plaza is the Lezo Church, a beautiful old building. If you are brave, climb up the Bell town to see a nice panoramic view of the town.

Beside the Church is the Lezo Pottery. It is here where the locals make beautiful clay pots and finish them in their kiln. Buying directly from the maker you will save much money as well.

Do[edit][add listing]

As in most small towns, the best thing to do is to walk around and interact with the locals, who are invariably friendly. At the pottery, you can ask if you can try your luck making something; offer some pesos for their time and help. There are also tennis and badminton courts if you want a more physical activity.
