I have been into different places, but my experience with Cagayancillo, one of the farthest island municipalities in the Province of Palawan is far different. The travel is indeed a nerve-wracking. Oh, the big big waves flavor more the adventure. By the way it’s a 6-hour trip from Anini-y, Antique by boat, if the weather is favorable but if not prepare to be devastated. #JK.
Upon reaching the place, the locals known as Cagayanen, and is considered as an Indigenous People (IP) are very hospitable and nice. The community shows the simplicity of the Cagayanens lifestyle.
Apart from the serenity of the place, Cagayancillo is abundant with the wonders of nature. The marine life is just a piece of the amazing features of the town.
Luckily, I have spotted the farthest island sitio of Cagayancillo, Cawili. Again, Cawili is a 6-hour travel from the town proper thru a boat. Still I am not used to big waves and long sun exposure.
Aside from the perfect view of the sitio, it is also gifted with local birds called ‘Ku-ok’.
The Cagayanens love to cook and eat. So here are their best delicacies I have tasted.
Cagayancillo is rich of Catholic faith history and the town’s Church stood evidently.
The 5-day stay in Cagayancillo is remarkable. Well, the long sun exposure totally burnt my skin but definitely the experiences were all at its best. If I have that chance, for sure “I shall return”. I know Cagayanens adhere to this: Melled Kaw or Welcome. And they will be happy to accommodate me once again. ###
