Iligan City Refreshed at Timoga Cold Springs and Side trip at the Macaraeg Macapagal Ancestral House
Mid-day in Iligan City. The sun was blaring, the wind feels humid and after walking around the city streets to chase the Dyandi festival performers, it was a day begging for some nice cool dip. I guess the people at Iligan Bloggers Society (IBS) had foresight of what participants want for that day as we were scheduled to visit the Timoga Cold Springs in Buru-un. Iliganons seem so enthusiastic whenever I mention we're going there. They said it's a place of "flowing swimming pools".

Maria Cristina Falls is a waterfall of the Agus River on the island of Mindanao. It is sometimes called "twin falls" as the flow is separated by a rock at the brink of the waterfall.

Well known for its natural beauty and grandeur, the 320 feet (98 meters) high waterfall is also the primary source of electric power for the city's ...

Time stood still as soon as the boatman threw the anchor into the sea. The shimmering aquamarine waters stunned me. It was like a dream.
I jumped into the waters and felt the powdery cream sand with my feet. Finally, I've set foot at Mahabang Buhangin, Tinaga Island after braving the rough waves coming from the Pacific Ocean for two hours. Tinaga Island is part of the Calaguas Group of Islands in Camarines Norte.
The 8-hour roadtrip from Manila to Camarines Norte paid off because the moment my companions and I arrived at the island, time stopped. We were back to basics. There were no hot ...
