San Jacinto News
Masbate, an island province in the Bicol Region of the Philippines, is a land of many surprises. Before I was impressed with a group of islands in this province called Burias Islands, I was first smitten by the charm of another island of Masbate called Ticao.
When people think of Masbate, the first thing that pops into their mind is the annual rodeo wherein Masbateño cowboys and cowgirls showcase their skills.

Several Teams compete for the title of Dayaw Dalan Champion. The participating teams give their best performance in order to capture the attention and votes of the judges. The participants showing off their dancing skills and creative choreography.

Your patience is paid off by a great fly by from the Manta Rays. A great experience! Joyce and I enjoyed this immensely.
