Malasag Eco-tourism Village


Malasag Eco-tourism Village is a tribal community nestled in the slopes of a hill. This place showcases the ecology and ethnic culture of Northern Mindanao. Representatives from the six tribes in this part of  Mindanao live and work here. They do handcrifacts, perform rituals, dances, make ethnic instruments and other art forms. This was conceptualized in 1991  and inspired by the picturesque gardens of Granada in Spain and the Bouchart Gardens of Canada.

If you want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the main Cagayan de Oro area, you may rent a space here. Cost of the cottages range from P1,1850 - P 2,200 with free breakfast. You will have a view of Macajalar bay, Cagayan Pier and if the weather is fine you will see from the distance the island of Camiguin and Agutayan island. According to Department of Tourism (DOT) the Malasag Eco-tourism Village is the only theme park of its kind in Minadanao. 

You may watch every 4pm the tribes perform their  Daily Street dancing inside the village.  Pitch a tent at the campsite, take a splash at the swimming pool and more.

Especial thanks to Jong-Jong General, one of the workers in the village who was very accommodating and took all these photos. I admire his attitude when seeing visitors who are alone. I asked him if it is really his task to show around guests he said "Not really this is purely initiative." Gardens of Malasag Eco-tourism Village is in Cugman, Cagayan De Oro.
