GUIMARAS – A MANGO COUNTRY

Im dealing with my outside world lately .

I was able to fix my room. Practically they’re all cleaned up. I have thrown things that have taken a lot of space in my little room.

I decided I would not do anything not even washing the dishes .

I feel so tired knowing I did not do anything the entire week.

Earlier this morning I had a little chat with Kim, a girl -friend, someone I met from University of The Philippines in Los Banos, Laguna last year.  We had a little conversation about things, about life and got invited from a special event.

And because I have my own share of responsibilities, I had to say no to that invitation. I had to deal with the outside world.

I am not complaining but right now i feel I am a little pre-occupied with so many things.

I am going to share an interesting place in the province of Guimaras, in the Western Visayas region of the Philippines.

Guimaras island is located in the eastern part of Panay Island and was once a sub-province of Iloilo and became an independent province on May 22, 1992. Guimaras is infamous for its mangoes, which is known to be the sweetest mangoes in the world and one of the main incomes of most families in the province.

To get to Guimaras, you need to take a 15-20 minute boat ride from the Iloilo City to Jordan. There are two ports in Iloilo that have boats going to the Guimaras Island.

One is Buenavista and the other one is Jordan, the provincial capital of Guimaras. The port going to Jordan is situated in Ortiz which is near the SM Delgado and Robinson’s place.

You can take a cab for your convenience. When you get to Jordan port, you can proceed to the tourism centre which is just a few meters away from the drop off point. You can ask for tourism assistance when you get around.

There are numerous vans , tricycles who can offer you tour rides.

You can visit the Balaan Bukid which is a famous landmark in Guimaras known for being a pilgrimage and a trekking site that gives tourists views of Guimaras as well as Iloilo City to the North. It’s an easy hike from the capital town of Jordan.

From Jordan,  you can take a tricycle ride to Balaan Bukid, where you will start your 30 minute to 45 minute hike to the top.

The whole backpacking trip in Guimaras was practically spent in hiking, walking and trekking so we did not really spend time some social drinking at night.  We were all dead tired at the end of the day.

Another attraction I personally recommend you to visit is the Guisi Light house which is according to my research is the second oldest light house in the Philippines.

It was built during 1800’s.

There are numerous and interesting things to do in Guimaras . I felt sad leaving Guimaras missing the biggest mango plantation which is the Oro Verde. I wish we have unlimited time to explore Guimaras.

The Island really has a great beach resorts. Nagarao Island resort maybe suited for everyone . That’s where we stayed at and  what I liked about it is the individual cottages with toilets and showers facing the beach lined up with trees and flowers . A real paradise like no other. I feel like I own the island.

Best time to visit Guimaras is during summer and the province’s annual Manggahan sa Guimaras festival which is celebrated every April 16-20 to promote the mango industry.

Guimaras is genuinely one of the best tourist spots in the Phlippines. I really wanted to stay a little bit longer to try and explore several caves in the province but we only have a limited time.

And going back to mangoes, I really don’t know exactly how you can determine how sweet should be a mango is but the mangoes in the Guimaras island? Ang sarap!
