Camiguin is the actual tropical paradise. Higher volcanoes with all-natural forests meet up with the pristine waters of just one of the most effective dive-places in the Philippines. We take into consideration Camiguin to be the southern outpost of the Visayan Islands though it administratively belongs to Northern Mindanao. Why? The language spoken is Visayan, the lifestyle is neither of the Visayas nor Mindanao.

The name Camiguin is derived from the native phrase “Kamagong,” a tree of the Ebony loved ones that grows near lake Mainit in the Province of Surigao del Norte. The original inhabitants of Camiguin were being “Manobos” who migrated from Surigao. The aged indigenous language in Camiguin is referred to as “Kinamiguin,” which is very similar to the dialect spoken in Surigao.

What is so excellent on an island as quick as 33km and only 14km vast at its biggest place? It is the most peaceful island in the Philippines. Strangers are welcome and listen to “Hello Friend” as an alternative of the unsightly “Hi Kano” or “Hi Joe”. And quite important: The visitors of Camiguin are most respectful, they search for an untouched island with a good wide range of landscapes and incredibly pleasant hosts. Locals say that Camiguin usually means “Come Again”.

The topography of Camiguin could have been the stage of “Jurassic Park”. The only lacking cast are the T-Rex, but there are the tucos, a gecko out of the exact age. Listen to the tuco yelling for a mating associate in the evening, you will never ever neglect it.

When you arrive by ship, possibly from Balingoan (Mindanao) or from Cebu-City (Cebu) or from Jagna (Bohol) the volcano cones make you shiver (that’s high-quality, simply because it is rather heat in this article). Come across sandy seashores – white or black, cliffs and high mountains. Camiguin is 1 of the last islands presenting true jungle trekking.
