Guimaras is an island that can be reached by a 15-minute boat ride from Iloilo City. The town where the port of Guimaras is located is called Jordan. The province of Guimaras is well-known for their delicious mangoes. The provincial government issued an ordinance banning the entry of non-guimaras mangoes and such other products into the Province in order to ensure that the quality of the produce of the island is maintained.
Jordan is one of five municipalities of Guimaras province. Since this is the port of entry into the Island, it is the most popular. Zemkamps Chalet is the best choice for lodging in Jordan. The property is nicely located as it is near most points of interest in Jordan.
On this trip, we had chanced the tail-end of the Mango festival and there's a flurry of activities in the town. Travelers can just walk to the city-center from Zemkamps to join the various activities. One of the activities lined-up is an "eat-all-the-mangoes-you-can." I would have really enjoyed that. Unfortunately, we need to leave to catch other commitments in Iloilo.More
