Beautiful place

Quite a nice spot to stop for an hour or so. Surrounded by trees, i found it very relaxing. Pity the water was not really hot! We still swam for a while.

There was at least month when the water was very low (previous time I was there in July, 2016, and it was almost empty), but now It is full of water (January, 2017). Not very hot, but very nice to swim in the nighttime. There are 3 small pools and one big pool. Hope it will stay in present condition,... More

They say that the best things in life are free, or sometimes you can just pay 25 pesos for the entrance, harharhar.. Thats what i experienced when we went to Ardent hot spring. The place is very relaxing and when i say very relaxing i mean veeeeeery relaxing, i would recommend you to visit this place if you're in Camiguin!

My boyfriend was so excited to show me this attraction in Camiguin. Back when he was in high school he visited this place and had so much fun swimming. To our dismay, the pools in the place are almost empty and dry. What was left of the functioning hot spring was one small pool, about 3ft in depth. We still... More

It's one of the top destinations in Camiguin among tourists but for someone who's really excited to go back and have a hot spring experience, I was disappointed because it's not longer a hot spring.

There is almost no more (hot) water coming out from the spring, leaving only 1 small pool good for swimming. According to our guide, the spring became like this after an earthquake. I think this park should be no longer recommended for tourists as it is very disappointing, and a waste of gas and money.

Only one small pool was operational when my family went on December 22, 2016. They left without taking a dip because the waters looked murky. This was not the case when we first visited back in November 2014. Our guests from Luzon raved about the hot springs and so we vowed to be back, only to be disappointed this time... More

Ardent hot spring is a must see place in Camiguin Island. It is the only hot spring in Mindanao. The hot spring is therapeutic and a great place for relaxation.

Was looking forward to enjoying this natural hot spring but sadly they were only able to fill one small pool now. Our guide mentioned it was due to the earthquake sometime ago (?) that caused the source of the hot spring to blocked and/or the drought. IDK, that was what we were told. We went there before 8AM and it... More
