Camiguin Escapade III


It was our last day on the island. It shouldn't have been if one of our companions would'nt have scheduled his flight back in Manila the following day. We already envisioned that we won't be able to explore all the wonderful places of Camiguin on that day. Yet we tried to make the most out of the hours left for us,hehehe. After breakfast we took a plunge on the inviting pool of the resort...









And then took off to see the Sunken Cemetery and Guiob Church Remains in Barrio Bonbon, Catarman... It was quite spooky when we went boating around the Sunken Cemetery! Lol! And guess what? A lot of divers would go snorkeling in this side of the Island. Good thing we were'nt informed about it or else my companions might have preferred snorkeling here. Geez! As for me? I will never swim if that would have been the case!

According to the folks we spoke with, the Old Catarman was a small town buried when the Old Vulcan errupted. By the way Camiguin has 7 volcanoes that's why it's called the "Island Born of Fire". Because of Volcanic erruptions and massive land movements, the beautiful Island has become historically rich and is full of natural wonders.







Last but not the least splendid place that we went to was Katibawasan falls. The falls was surrounded by big trees and big ferns. According to the people who takes care of the place, the Waterfalls measures 250 feet high.





Camiguin Island is indeed full of mystical charm. My experience to that place is a total embrace to mother nature. There were still a lot of places that we missed and I'm sure I'm going back there and try all the other adventures like mountain trekking. Diving and snorkeling? Uhmm... I'll see if I can do it the next time! Lol! Thanks to Czarina and Cliff for this wonderful experience!
