Sto. Niño Cold Spring Resort - Catarman, Camiguin

Our last stop for our  day tour in Camiguin  was Sto. Niño Cold Spring Resort, it is located in Catarman, Camiguin. Camiguin is tagged as the second smallest province in the Philippines, the province born of fire and I want to add to that title as Spring Capital of the Philippines. It has several springs cold and hot. Some of these springs are developed for tourists with huge swimming pools, picnic huts and tables, souvenir shops, restaurants and the likes. The most popular among them are the Ardent Hot Springs Resort , Bura Soda Water Park and the Sto. Niño Cold Spring Resort.

Sto. Niño Cold Spring Resort has crystal clear water that fish can be seen clearly even just merely looking at the water. We were so tired no energy to swim so we just dipped our feet while sitting on the side of the swimming pool. Watching the fish swimming was so relaxing. It was inviting to swim with them lol but sad to say we had to go back to Caayan de Oro City. The swimming pool can be a huge fish spa because when we were motionless, the school of fish got near and was started to bite our dead skin. In Manila it’s expensive but in Sto. Niño Cold Spring Resort its part of the perks and freebies of the resort.

The Resort has two stone pools, one for the adults which has a measurement of 25 meters by 40 meters with a depth varies from ½ meter to 2 meters and the other one is a kiddie pool.

There were ladies offering food, they have package to choose from. I learned that they have organization of housewives offering home cooked food as the livelihood program of the locals. Since we had a sumptuous lunch in Bura Soda Water Park we didn’t order instead ordered fresh buko (young coconut) and rice puto (steamed rice cake) for our snack. Fresh Buko is 20.00 pesos and rice puto is 10.00 not bad for a snack.

End of the tour, it was worth of the time and effort to explore this tiny island but too many things to offer. Thank you Camiguin.
