A nice, quiet, soothing and relaxing escape...and only 20 pesos! It's hard to believe that the place is almost always empty,

My boyfriend was so excited to show me this attraction in Camiguin. Back when he was in high school he visited this place and had so much fun swimming. To our dismay, the pools in the place are almost empty and dry. What was left of the functioning hot spring was one small pool, about 3ft in depth. We still... More

It's one of the top destinations in Camiguin among tourists but for someone who's really excited to go back and have a hot spring experience, I was disappointed because it's not longer a hot spring.

There is almost no more (hot) water coming out from the spring, leaving only 1 small pool good for swimming. According to our guide, the spring became like this after an earthquake. I think this park should be no longer recommended for tourists as it is very disappointing, and a waste of gas and money.

Only one small pool was operational when my family went on December 22, 2016. They left without taking a dip because the waters looked murky. This was not the case when we first visited back in November 2014. Our guests from Luzon raved about the hot springs and so we vowed to be back, only to be disappointed this time... More

Ardent hot spring is a must see place in Camiguin Island. It is the only hot spring in Mindanao. The hot spring is therapeutic and a great place for relaxation.

Was looking forward to enjoying this natural hot spring but sadly they were only able to fill one small pool now. Our guide mentioned it was due to the earthquake sometime ago (?) that caused the source of the hot spring to blocked and/or the drought. IDK, that was what we were told. We went there before 8AM and it... More

We went to the place last September 12, 2016 and only the last & smallest pool has hot water anyway we were informed by the gatekeeper that the pool has no water due to severe drought that was experienced in the island since January of 2016.

The many months of severe draught and the earthquake on Bohol in 2013 have caused the Hot Springs not to be so hot anymore and there is barely enough water to use as a kiddie pool. Not very clean anymore either. So before you enter and pay the non-refundable gate fee, check out the place.
