To say Camiguin is a beautiful island would be an understatement. True, most tourists and locals love the beautiful beaches the rich marine life, refreshing waterfalls, hot and cold springs and all of Camiguins tourist spots. However, theres more to Camiguin than meets the eye.
When we had our retreat in Cagayan de Oro, we decided to have a side trip in Camiguin Island. From Cagayan de Oro pier, we cross to Camiguin Island via the Paras Supercat Ocean Jet. It is a fast craft ro-ro and I like it because it is comfortable and air-conditioned. From Cagayan port, it is approximately 1-hour travel to Benoni port in Camiguin Island.
Camiguin Island, also known as the island born of fire, is a small province in Northern Mindanao that is comprised of five municipalities namely: Mambajao, Catarman, Sagay, Guinsiliban, and Mahinog. It is a favorite vacation destination by tourists all year round due to its varied natural attractions - with each municipalities having its own natural hot & cold spring, landmarks, and mountains.
I must admit that Camiguin (this wonderful island so beautiful filled my dreams for weeks) was not initially part of my itinerary for my Mindanao tour. My reasons. All of them were stupid and I rather keep them to myself.

Go to the island!!) that has been bugging me for years, also so I could take it off my bucket list. Never have I imagined that I would fall in love with it over and over.
