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

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.

We went there expecting a nice relaxing dip to end the day but we never went in because upon checking the spring, they had no water!

Water was very much lukewarm, not hot at all. There is a small pool that you can wade in. Then there's a bigger pool where you can swim. But at the time of our visit, the bigger pool was empty. The place has a lot of potential if only the water was indeed hot.

The pools were mostly dry and the water luke warm. This we were told was because of El Nino. My wife had attend in the past and raved about it but was so saddened when she saw the pools dry. It is cheap to attend but make sure you enquire with the attendant or locals before entering as it may... More

From a tip, we tried Ardent. A little hesitant but sooner did I realize it was worth the effort. Tired muscle becomes supple as the hot springs bring melancholy to aching body. Try and see this wonderful oasis.
