There are many beautiful places for sightseeing, mountain climbing, diving and other activities tourists would love to do. As travelers, we must be responsible enough to always check travel warnings and news of places we wish to go to avoid incidents and unsafe tours.

As of 2013 some towns in Mindanao are under attack by MNLF (Moro National Liberation front) that are affecting town’s businesses, infrastructures and the people’s daily life and livelihood.

DO NOT go to cities mentioned below or surrounding areas at this time (September 2013) and onwards until everything clears up and fixed as it is very dangerous due to terrorists attacks, kidnapping, killings and bombing.

    […] Mindanao has had a lot of bad press lately.  But it should not be confused with the peaceful tourist spot of Northern Mindanao which includes Cagayan de oro and Camiguin. […]
