The Mindanao Philippines

Mindanao, the big island at the foot of the Philippine archipelago, the artistic core of the people. A stand where primitive people still cultivate their ancient homelands. Christians live alongside Muslims who early established here in the fourteenth century. Spanish government came once to the peninsula, tenuous throughout the nineteenth century. When the Americans took up the reefs, they faced a fierce fight.

Contrary to public opinion, the peninsula now calm, loving and inviting. Yet Mindanao one of distressed neighborhoods in the Philippines and new places unsafe for visitors. North Mindanao, the Gateway City of Cagayan de Oro. The center surf magnet of Siargao Island in the east. The region most tourists interested in and preserved.

In between lies Camiguin, a ravishing volcanic island off Mindanao’s northern shoreline. The untouched Agusan Marsh Wildlife Refuge, populated by the Manobo tribe. The hypnotic azure waters of the Enchanted River. Worth exploring the western ports of Iligan and Dapitan (our national hero Jose Rizal sent into exile). The Mount Malin dang National Park, a slight familiar part of dense rainforest near Ozamiz.

Davao in the Southland, the peninsula’s de facto capital, is a pleasant provincial capital. Excellent restaurants, nightlife and endless stacks of durian. The stinky fruit that tastes gourmet custard. Nearby are the shores of Samar Island and majestic Mount Apo. West of the frenetic City of General Santos, around the coasts of Lake Sebu. The peaceful and artistic T’boli people live in old wooden homes. Wear hand-woven tribal costumes and ornaments.

Much of western Mindanao is a part of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao or ARMM. A part of massive tourism potential. But with freedom condition in a voice of unrest. Highlights include the old Muslim capital of Marawi. Stands on the northern coast of Placid Lake Lanao. The hundreds of reefs that form the spectacular Sulu archipelago, Tawi-Tawi.
