Cagayan de Oro and Camiguin (Part II)

Balingoan Port, jump off point to Camiguin island province

Since we wanted to get to Camiguin before it got dark, we sped off through Misamis Oriental from Cagayan de Oro to the town of Balingoan, where our vehicle boarded a ferry on route to the island province.

We got at Benoni port, in the town of Mahinog at the eastern side of the island at almost six in the evening. After our vehicle got off from the ferry, we immediately took off for Mambajao, the island province’s capitol at the northern part of the island.


My parents and our host went to market for a while to buy some fish before we proceeded to the resort where we stayed for the night. It was also in Mambajao. When we got there (Paras Beach Resort), our host asked the staff to cook our fish, then we went off again to Ardent Hot Springs where we spent an hour bathing in the warm pools before having dinner back at Paras.

It was a very stomach filling dinner. Only the spatial limits of my stomach can stop me from eating if you offer me any viand with gata. Add to that, crispy pata. I made sure to do some laps in the pool before sleeping though.
