We were supposed to be here for a quick lunch only but since we paid the entrance fee of Php 30/person, might as well take a dip at the cold spring while waiting. Water's really ice cold but once your body temperature adjusts, it feels so refreshing & relaxing especially on a very hot day. It took 1.5 hours before... More

This spring is as big as an Olympic size swimming pool, I think. It's nice. The water is cold but tolerable. It is cold the first time you dip but once in the water, your body will adapt to the temperature. You'll also be swimming with tiny fishes. I had fun trying to catch it but they're too fast! It...

The water is indeed cold. We weren't able to swim for long because the water was too cold for us. If you enjoy the cold or if it's a really hot day, you will enjoy swimming here. The place is clean. There are cottages which you can rent for 75. Entrance fee is 30 per person.

The water is indeed icy cold when you first go into the spring. But you will soon find your self relaxed and refreshed. There is something to be said for the spring water, it feels so clean and light unlike water from pools with chlorine. While there are other swimmers, the place is big enough to handle big crowds. There... More

Maintained its cold temperature and beauty. I love it just the way it is. I don't want to see any other improvements to the place to keep its raw beauty being one with nature. If you don't have packs meals and you intend to stay for lunch, order food before entering the gate, they will cook it accdg to your... More

A deep dive to the coldest spring i have experienced. Your first dive seems you do not like to swim for a second time due to the coldness of the water in crystal clear.

This is one of the places on the island where the water comes from underground rivers which are non-volcanic making the water extremely cold. The pools here are free-flowing, however quite deep so you have to be a good swimmer to last in their pool. However there are kiddie pools where you could stay if you are not a good... More

Coming from a place where hot springs are the norm, this was a welcome change for me. The water is really cold and refreshing. The resort is well-maintained. I got to taste kiping topped with latik (coconut sauce) for the first time in this resort. A must-go-to place in Camiguin. Tip: Spend a day here and not just as part... More

After a hot day at the beach, here's a good place to dip into. The parking area and the pool is a bit crowded during weekends. The water is not as cold as expected but cool, nonetheless. Entrance fee is Php 30 - good enough for a quick dip.

After a long day of land tour, we ended it at this refreshing place. The water is cold, but it feels great because it was hot. Since the pool is deep, children needs to wear floatation device for safety. I am short and I am not a good swimmer so I needed the "salbabida", they have it for rent. There... More
