The water is indeed icy cold when you first go into the spring. But you will soon find your self relaxed and refreshed. There is something to be said for the spring water, it feels so clean and light unlike water from pools with chlorine. While there are other swimmers, the place is big enough to handle big crowds. There... More

Maintained its cold temperature and beauty. I love it just the way it is. I don't want to see any other improvements to the place to keep its raw beauty being one with nature. If you don't have packs meals and you intend to stay for lunch, order food before entering the gate, they will cook it accdg to your... More

A deep dive to the coldest spring i have experienced. Your first dive seems you do not like to swim for a second time due to the coldness of the water in crystal clear.

This is one of the places on the island where the water comes from underground rivers which are non-volcanic making the water extremely cold. The pools here are free-flowing, however quite deep so you have to be a good swimmer to last in their pool. However there are kiddie pools where you could stay if you are not a good... More

Coming from a place where hot springs are the norm, this was a welcome change for me. The water is really cold and refreshing. The resort is well-maintained. I got to taste kiping topped with latik (coconut sauce) for the first time in this resort. A must-go-to place in Camiguin. Tip: Spend a day here and not just as part... More

After a hot day at the beach, here's a good place to dip into. The parking area and the pool is a bit crowded during weekends. The water is not as cold as expected but cool, nonetheless. Entrance fee is Php 30 - good enough for a quick dip.

After a long day of land tour, we ended it at this refreshing place. The water is cold, but it feels great because it was hot. Since the pool is deep, children needs to wear floatation device for safety. I am short and I am not a good swimmer so I needed the "salbabida", they have it for rent. There... More

I think it was not that cold as I had expected it to be. When we went there they are still filling up the spring and cleaning the spring floor since it is not cemented. It was similar to Maquinit hot spring in Coron but a little cleaner. You can enjoy the coconuts being sold and stay for a while... More
