ASIDE from the postcard-perfect remains of Guiob Church, waterfalls, and picturesque landscapes, the locals of Camiguin also boast of another most-frequented tourist spot in the island.
We had gone in not a few places in Camiguin Island during my trip there with travel buddies. But before our trip came to an end, we visited one more resort, obviously our last.
Ardent Hot Spring, located in Esperanza Tagdo, Mambajao, Camiguin, is famous to both local and international tourists, as its water, with a temperature up to 40 degrees Celsius, is believed to be therapeutic.
Backpackers and families who are planning a trip to Camiguin must as well visit the resort and enjoy the tranquility it offers to guests.
For families, there are picnic huts for rent which vary in sizes, depending on the needs of the guests.
With four different pools now in place, the adults and the children can fully enjoy the hot spring while leaving behind the city's fast-paced lifestyle.
It feels good to be one with nature. Plus, the sight of distinctive terrain where the resort stands and the flowers around completes the picture of no less than a lively paradise.
To enjoy a more serene experience, spas are readily available right inside the resort, aside from other amenities for the delight of the guests.
Other amenities include the conference hall for big functions, the canteen that offers delectable foods at reasonable price, and lodging cottages. The resort also offers catering services and island tour.
But what I love the most in Camiguin is the effort to secure the safety of the visitors. In my three-day stay in the island, I noticed that majority of the tourist spots I came to visit had policemen watching after the peace and order.
A visit to Camiguin Island is not complete without you checking out this hot spring.
