Bucolic and bounteous, Guimaras, 15 km off the Iloilo Ferry Terminal, is a must-visit when vacationing in Iloilo.
The island province’s famous sweet mangoes are being exported to countries such as America. Other than the mango growing industry, community-based rural tourism supports livelihood. FoodPrints did a mini day tour, covering a mango plantation, mango pasalubong stands and the Trappist Monastery. Chicos grown there are also nice and sweet. We rested a bit at a resort in Alubihod, where the white sand beach looked warm and inviting. Went back to the mango stalls and filled in boxes to bring home.
