By road you are several hours north of San Fernando and La Union. Although
the coastal road is scenic and has various small towns, well worth stopping
off at for a break. Places such as Bandar, Candan and Narvacan. You
will also pass through Vigan which is another surf spot just south of
Badoc. Bus services run north from San Fernando or of course you can
hire a private car or van.

It is usually a whole roasted pig, but suckling pigs (lechonillo, or lechon de leche) or cattle calves (lechong baka) can also be prepared in place of the popular adult pig.
