Cagayan De Oro - Bukidnon - Camiguin: 4D/3N Travel Itinerary

TRAVEL DATES: February 23 - 26, 2014

Traversing Northern Mindanao Region has been one of the most popular travel itineraries nowadays particularly because of the White Water Rafting that Cagayan De Oro City offers. Philippines is an archipelago comprised of 7,000 islands and traveling from one province to the other is not that easy...well that was the case before.

Good thing in the past years, several local air carriers have offered cheaper plane flights, at times they have a "Piso Fare" (One Peso Fare), which attracts more Filipinos to travel more and enjoy and appreciate more the local tourist spots. Also, most of us Filipinos like extreme adventures and this contributes to the rise in tourist arrivals on the cluster provinces of Misamis Oriental, Bukidnon, and Camiguin.

If I have to choose one place among the three provinces included in this Northern Mindanao travel adventure, I'd choose none as each place offers unique extreme activities. What more can one ask with the White Water Rafting of CDO, Zipline and Dropzone of Bukidnon, and the Spring Resorts, Sunken Cemetery, and White Island Sandbar of Camiguin?

Travel more and enjoy life. Who know's you may discover something new about yourself by conquering your fears and facing each and every challenge you encounter in your life.
