The Alligator Lake or Tadlac Lake is located at Brgy. Tadlac. This is listed as an inactive volcano by Phivolcs. The lake is situated directly below the Northeastern slope of Mt. Makiling and has no outlet and is only replenished by rainfall.

100 Ft Slip and Dive
This is one of the must try amenities of Laresio. This is a 100 feet slide towards the lake. This is very safe because it is wider than the usual pool slide. You will also be provided with a life jacket for non-swimmers.
I have tried Slip and Dive several times and its really amazing to experience this kind of slide.
32 ft Cliff Dive
Part of the package is to experience the 32feet cliff dive. This is the most highlighted part of the Laresio because it is the only resort that offers this kind of amenity.
If you ask if its scary?? Yes it is. I only jumped once and conquered my fear. Yes, it was really scary and after I jumped, I realized that I had fear of heights. It took me awhile to jump and did so many attempts.
