 CAMARINES SUR TOURIST SPOTS| TRAVEL GUIDE

Camarines Sur Tourist Spots is a list of various destinations of the place.

Camarines Sur: The Adventure and Sports Capital of the Philippines

At 45 minutes away by flight or equivalent travel time of 10 to 12 hours by bus, Camarines Sur, the largest province in both land area and population in the Bicol province, is not necessarily an easy destination to get into from Metro Manila. Yet, despite this level of distance, the province managed to become one of the country’s rising star in tourism that saw its own and the country’s record being broken almost 9 years ago in 2010.

At the time, three of the country’s most visited places were still Metro Manila, Cebu, and Boracay respectively, based on the overall number of individuals doing the visit. Camarines Sur, on the other hand, was gathered at 2.3 million, a majority of which is local and is a rise of 49% at nearly 1.6 million a year before, according to Inquirer.net.

Camarines Sur’s prominence as a tourist destination saw it resurging sometime in 2018 at the heat of the roadblock to Boracay due to rehabilitation efforts. Although its distance from Boracay, too, is many kilometers away to easily be considered an easy alternative, it did not hamper the tourists’ interest from choosing it as a viable option in lieu of Aklan’s treasured site.

Knowing Camarines Sur as both a province and an attractive tourist destination, a few areas in the region defined the influx of tourist visit—the city of Naga and Pili, and the rugged Caramoan, as well as its offshore islands.

 Camarines Sur Tourist Spots | Things to Do

Camarines Sur as part of the Bicol region is enough to make you feel excited about the holidays or the vacation season. Allow me to share with you some places to visit to give you tidbits of tips and tricks.

Culture Trip at Naga City [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spots]

While learning the culture of the city people of Naga may not be the primary reason for tourist visit in the region, much of the happening in this part of Camarines Sur is indeed centered around that. Essentially a “culture trip” aspect of the Camsur adventure, the city is a site to the region’s icons such as the varying depiction of architecture rooted in religion, the diverse museums that are scattered around the city, and equally as important, the revered effigy of the Our Lady of Peñafrancia.

Sports Adventure at Pili

It is hard to describe Camarines Sur as a tourist destination without pointing to its capital city which is also a site for the famed and world-class Camarines Sur Watersports Complex (CWC), touted as the “best wakeboarding park in the world.”

The popularity of wakeboarding alone in the region is such, a House Bill aimed at declaring the province as a “Wakeboarding Capital of the Philippines” was approved in December last year.

Island Hop Across the Caramoan Islands [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spots]

Located at the bottom part of Camarines Sur, this 2nd class municipality is filled with different natural adventures and spots.

Caramoan is known for its uneven terrain, but at the same time, many unique sites that can be traveled by foot. But if there are places that make a trip to this underdeveloped region a worthy journey close to the sea, it has got to be the nearby offshore islands which bear the namesake of the land.

Yet, with uniformity as not the central theme to this tiny archipelago in the ocean, island hopping across the many islands of Caramoan is never dull, rather offers enough exciting dynamics with every migration.

Basilica of Our lady of Penafrancia [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spot]

The image of Our lady of Penafrancia is a wooden statue that is originated from Spain. As the patroness of Bicol, they hold a lot of feast and festivities throughout the year. The neoclassical architectural design of the façade of it is also something to see.

Consocep Mountain Resort [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spot ]

Trekking that will lead to three scenic falls, the Kawa-kawa, Tumaguiti, and Bulalacao fall. The trekking activity may take some hard work and sweat but the view along with the bath time is very refreshing and satisfying. If I may also suggest, better to head here with co-adults since the children may not be into this kind of trekking activity yet.

Itbog Twin Falls [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spot ]

The lush green background of the flowing 60-feet falls is genuinely a picturesque scene. The water is coming from Mt. Isarog, and it offers a fantastic view as it showers down to the basin part. I highly recommend that you set-up a picnic here for it will undoubtedly be fun.

Haciendas De Naga Resort [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spot ]

A place that is accredited by the National Golf Association of the Philippines like this one is a world-class experience; it has a zoo, adventure park, resort, nature park, and a wave pool! I urge you to spend the rest of the day here, and I know that you will never run out of the activity to try out.

Sabang Beach [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spot ]

The paradise-like view and adventure at Sabang beach will leave you speechless. The sunny weather matched with the picturesque view of the sea and the coastal area will make you feel that you’re really in a small paradise here on earth. You can also head to the Old Moro watchtower and have a view of the Mayon Volcano.

Isarog National Park

Heading here will entail some hiking, but the rappelling on the waterfalls or the cliff jumping will surely bring out the adventurous side of you! I urge you to come here with your brave spirit, and I know that you will never regret trying these activities.

Panicuason Hot Springs and Adventure Park [ Camarines Sur Tourist Spot ]

The natural hot and cold, hot springs found in the area along with the other relaxing activities will make you feel at home in this park. You can even try a zip line activity, biking, Tarzan swing, and a lot of more fun adventures! Spend the rest of the day here for you to fully maximize all the activities.

Camarines Sur merely is famous for everything! From people, food, and places to visit. In as much as I would like to give you a lot of information on this list, I know that this article will not be enough to provide justice to the beauty of the place. Come here and experience it fully! Have a Happy Trip!
