Sto. Nino spring is at the foot of the mountain. It's really cold thus, the name suggests. The pool has division for the adults and kids. Swimmers used inflated tire interiors for their floaters. There are huts for rents around the pool and they can grill and eat there. One observation that really awed me from the time I arrived.... More

Since the water gushing is all natural, expect the water to be slightly cold, but not enough for you to shiver! Its just nice to soothe your feeling of warmth during summer time! :) Visited july 2012

Food is not a problem, right outside the spring are food stalls and vendors that will offer you kipping and grilled fish for a fee. Some might say that the facilities is... More

As you enter this pristine paradise first you'll ask yourself, where the heck did the cold water come from. I mean unlike other "springs", usually there is a river or a brook that comes somewhere. And when you plunge into the freezing water, you'll realize that the cold spring water is sprouting from the sandy bottom. I love the presentation... More

It was my second time in the site and I can say that the water indeed was very cold. It's so cold that it can make your room-temperature bottled water turn icy cool within minutes of submerging! I really liked how they maintained the fish in the pool but the concrete platforms in the deeper parts of the pool were... More

My family didn't swim as crowds started to pour in after lunch but they enjoyed the little fish that would "eat" the dead skin on their feet.

Cold Springs is a naturally formed swimming pool that has been closed in and an entrance fee is required. As with everywhere in the Philippines, someone is close at hand to offer food, drink, and tubes for floating in the pool. Nice relaxing stop on an overall island tour.

The spring sits in a beautiful gorge, which has been developed into a concrete-lined swimming pool. The water is wonderful, cold but not freezing, very clean, great for swimming. I'm afraid some great magic has been lost by developing the natural spring for mass public use; wish I could have seen it before the concrete and all. There's a kitchen... More

This spring is located opposite side of the island than most of the hotels so you need a drive,.tricycle or multicab. Water is really cold and fresh but this is primitive place and some dirty. Needs more clean up and maybe better restaurant.
