Ardent Hot Springs

Another one of the Philippines' Camiguin Island's famous hot spot is the Ardent Hot Springs. This is a government-owned recreational and leisure facility run by the municipal government of Mambajao since 1999 and was once under the Philippine Tourism Authority. Entrance fee is 30 pesos.

The best time to go there is at night when the cold weather can be countered by the hot and warm temperatures of the hot springs.

The hot waters come from the bowels of Mount Hibok-Hibok and is said to be medicinal. People from far and wide come solely for this reason if not out of curiosity.

If you want it really hot, I would suggest you take a dip at the top because if you do at the bottom part area, the temperature is not that very hot anymore because the heat had been absorbed by other bathers who hung out at the top.

They have cottages and accommodations in case tourists prefer to spend the night there after the hot dip. Whether it would rain or not, the hot temperatures of Ardent's hot springs gives soothing and relaxation feelings to tourists from a day's worth of traveling.
