A Short Adventure at Camiguin Island

So, this entry is quite overdue as my escapade at Camiguin Island already happened last 30th and 31th of October. Nonetheless, I know I must blog it still as I can truly say I did have fun at this popular tourist attraction in Mindanao.

Here’s a short trivia about Camiguin. It is an island province of the Philippines located in the Bohol Sea, about 10 km (6.2 mi) off the northern coast of Misamis Oriental in Mindanao. It is the second-smallest province both in population and land area after Batanes. The capital of the province is Mambajao, and it is a part of the Northern Mindanao Region of the Philippines.

How to get there? You can travel by air or sea depending on your origin. Visit this link here for more details. 

My friends and I traveled from Cagayan de Oro to Balinguan at around 7 AM. Then from there, we took a barge-ride to Binoni. We hired a multicab heading to our resort, Paguia’s Cottages. Since we got to pass by the Katibawasan Falls, we took time to shoot pictures only but didn’t have the chance to try it’s cold waters since it was almost lunch.

We arrived at the resort. It was very affordable and the rooms  were comfy. They’ve got  free WiFi around their vicinity, plus you could borrow their utensils and make use of their kitchen if cooking is your passion. I’d definitely recommend this resort to all travelers out there.

After lunch, we visited the famous Sunken Cemetery. The view from afar was splendid. We had fun taking pictures, especially when our unofficial boat-driver-turned-out-photographer directed us his photo shoots for our crazy jump shots!

We also made a quick stop at 16th century Gui-Ob Old Church, which is also another famous landmark in the province. The said church was damaged to the volcanic eruption in the 18th century.

Next stop, we went to Sto. Niño and Ardent, some cold and hot springs, respectively.  I like the latter more, I think everyone could agree with me, right?

Early next day, we can’t wait to finally land on the island’s trademark, White Island! The weather cooperated quite well as it was like cloudy and sunny at the same time. My tip, don’t forget to bring your sunblock lotion unless you want to hit the island before sunrise, LOL.

So here’s my mini-slideshow of our adventure. There are other several tourist attractions to visit, but we didn’t have ample time though.
