Whenever you mention Mindanao first thing they ask is “Is it safe there?” hell yeah!. In fact, Mindanao is one of my favorite, not because I am from Davao City, but because it has lots to offer! beautiful beaches, very nice and accommodating people, lots or water falls, foods and fruits!
I’m not gonna put into details as to how to get there and the fare and all since you probably checked other blogs already hahaha
I know lots of you will feel very unsafe to be in this part of Mindanao especially because of the on-going Marawi Siege. We are lucky that we get to visit Iligan before things went crazy.
From Manila you can get cheap flights to Cagayan De Oro ( CDO airport) then take a van from the airport to Iligan city, travel time is 1-2 hrs. Right outside CDO airport there are van/ bus operators who offers transfer to Iligan.
If you are planning to go to Iligan from Laguindingan Airport best if you take an early flight so you’ll have plenty of time to explore the city, We arrived pretty late so we only got to visit Tinago falls.
The hike to the falls in No joke so be ready, we almost had to carry nyaw nyaw on our way up 😂
One thing I noticed about this city is the super cheap foods, I can eat for just 50 php!
What to do?? Of course, water rafting!!
I thought, I’m gonna die doing this! Lol
Just me doing my thing….
This is definitely a must visit place in Mindanao. This island is a pure beauty
We booked a day trip for 1500 php which is very worth it.
The white Island – just a short boat ride from the main island
Soda pool- for real, it taste like soda!
The sunken cemetery – great spot for snorkeling, they got some giant clamps!
The cold spring
