WHAT TO EXPECT AT ARDENT HOT SPRINGS

As I mentioned earlier, Ardent Hot Springs sits at the foot of Mt. Hibok Hibok volcano which is where the thermal water is derived from. The water temperature is around 40°C that is slightly cooled on the way down to the lower pools.

Ardent Hot Springs are man-made pools surrounded by lush rainforest and the water is transparent with a tinge of blue. For a man-made structure, they’ve done well to make this place a tranquil experience for visitors.

The water cascades from the top of the valley and divided into four separate pools. The two larger pools at the bottom are the most inviting and there is an arched footbridge between them.

Ardent Hot Springs is around 1.5 meters deep with plenty of space to hang out in the thermal pools or around the edges on the concrete steps.

A dip in the Ardent Hot Spring Mambajao is the best remedy for muscle pains after a long day exploring around the island.

If you’re hungry, there is a small cafe that resides at this Camiguin hot spring selling local cuisine dishes and a variety of drinks and snacks.

The best time to visit Ardent Hot Springs is on a weekday when it is less busy as the weekends draw many local families and it can get very crowded at these thermal pools.
