The volcanic activity of Mt. Hibok-Hibok heats the water of Ardent, which is pleasant and reinvigorating after a tiring day of exploring Camiguin.

We were lucky as we arrived just after cleaning day and the springs were not busy so we had time to try a few things out. Going to the hot springs after a whole day sightseeing and swimming on the cold waters was pretty good. The area was divided to smaller places so we looked for a place with a... More

Going to the hot springs after a whole day sightseeing and swimming on the cold waters was pretty good. The area was divided to smaller places so we looked for a place with a good space for all us. The water can be warm at certain spots and just lukewarm on others. It was still a good area to stay... More

Nice to go here at night when you wind down. Also nice during the day though. Easy to go and so calm and relaxing to the nerves.

From the posts, Ardent Spring is centered on a series of hot water pools which range in temperature from 39-42 degrees celsius. Picnic facilities, accommodation and massage are available 24 hours. Entrance fee is 30 pesos. Our experience however, did not meet our expectations. We were thinking that the temperature would be more or less the same as that of... More

I like how they landscaped the area and designed their pools. The warm water is enjoyable and medicinal. From the gate, there is a distinctive smell that welcomes guests... i don't know if it's pee or sulfur...
