Camiguin Island is the smallest province in Northern Mindanao. This place offers a lot of things to travelers . Those who love to travel will surely love this place. And what I like the most in Camiguin is the hospitality and honesty of the people there. They are so nice and humble. When you go to Camiguin, you will feel like you are in the other country because of the presence of foreigners freely roaming around the place. However, it's not that easy to get there. Our point of origin is in Davao city. From Davao, we took a bus for Cagayan de Oro. It is a 8-9 hour travel. From CDO, we took another shuttle bus for Misamis Oriental to reach Balinguan. It is a 2 hour travel. Then finally, a Ro-Ro vessel brought us to Benoni port.
Our first stop was the Katibawasan Falls.
Then, the walkway to the old volcano and station of the cross.
Of course, No. 1 on our list is the sunken cemetery. It is the main tourist attraction in the area. Good thing, the local tourist guides know how to capture picture creatively.
We also got the chance to visit some ruins of old churches.
The highlight of our travel is perhaps, the White Island (I made a separate blog on this). I so love it here!
And finally, a hot spring in Ardent is the best place to go to release tension, aches and pain from a long travel.
Nothing beats a native place like this where we stayed overnight!
