Gentri's Best is a local producer of kasilyo, the native kesong puti (white cheese) of Cavite made from carabao's milk. Best served with pandesal and coffee, kasilyo has a soft, smooth texture with hints of sour and salty flavors.
Each palm-sized, round piece is handmade. Milk, mixed with vinegar, is boiled and stirred until it thickens. The congealed mixture is then shaped into a ball and soaked in brine until it's ready for packaging. Gentri's Best also makes another variety of kesong puti with no vinegar, which gives it a milder taste. Their other products include fresh milk, yoghurt, ice cream, and pastillas de leche.
Established as a cooperative in 2005, Gentri's Best operates a medium scale processing center and collects a daily average of 250 liters of carabao's milk from local raisers. Their products are sold in their own store in General Trias and distributed through Mr. Moo's dairy stores.
GBR Museum features a visual narrative of Philippine history with its extensive collection of more than 3,000 original photographs from the 19th and early 20th centuries. The defining piece is a photo of Dr. Jose Rizal's execution in Bagumbayan. Three of the five galleries contain landscape photos of Intramuros and other prominent pueblos in the 1800s; war photographs from the Spanish, American, and Japanese periods; and portraits of Filipino political leaders, indigenous peoples, and ordinary folks. Most of them are works of British photographer Albert Honiss and Spanish war correspondent Manuel Arias y Rodriguez. The two other galleries are about aviation history and development told through paintings and aircraft scale models. Located within the 180-hectare Gateway Business Park, the museum was named after its founder Geronimo Berenguer de los Reyes Jr., an industrialist and great grandson of a member of the 1872 Cavite Mutiny.
Carmona is one of two established paragliding sites in the Philippines, the other being in Saranggani, Mindanao. The activity takes off from an unobstructed mountain in Barangay Lantik, wherein paragliders may face strong Amihan winds between the months of November to April. Each paraglider is assigned a professional pilot, who will maneuver and safely land the gliding aircraft. The glide lasts about 10 to 15 minutes, and offers a spectacular bird's eye view of Carmona and its surrounding mountains. Since paragliding requires wind speeds not exceeding 20/kph during dry weather, a flight can sometimes be canceled or postponed. Guests are advised to manage their expectations and welcome instances when no flight can take place. In the event that wind conditions are not perfect, guests can wait at the flysite's nipa huts wherein they can have a picnic or mingle with fellow gliders.
