“Mango Country of Visayas”

Guimaras Island is a favored destination by both foreign and domestic tourists because of its picturesque beaches, waterfalls, springs, off shore islets, and its famous mangoes, which is considered one of the sweetest in the world. Guimaras is an island province of the Philippines located in the Western Visayas region. Among the smallest and youngest provinces, its capital is Jordan. The island is located in the Panay Gulf, between the islands of Panay and Negros.

Guimaras mangoes are among the sweetest in the world! If you want to you fill, go to the Oro Verde Mango Plantation, where 12, 000 trees (some centuries old!) are rooted in the land’s rich soil and produce these famous fruits.
