I had the chance to visit Mapaso Wellness Resort in Mainit, Surigao del Norte last month - June 2013.



HOW TO GET THERE

If you have your own car, just find crossing Magpayang going to Mainit or Matin-ao. Look for the sign of  “Magpaso Wellness Resort” in junction Mapaso.  From crossing, another one km rough-road-drive going to the location of the hot spring.
From Butuan, ride in a bus bound to Surigao City. Tell the driver/conductor to drop you in eskina/crossing Magpayang. There are tricycles and habal-habal for hire in Magpayang.  I recommend habal-habal - it can tolerate the rocky and rough road going to the location of the hot spring. Bus fare is P100+ for air-conditioned and much cheaper  for non-aircon  while hiring of habal-habal costs around P100-150.
From Surigao City, ride in a bus or van bound to Butuan City. There are also multicabs  bound to Kitcharao. Tell the driver to drop you in crossing Magpayang.

  13. I would definitely try the "hottest pool". I'll bring chicken eggs with me when I try that so that I'll have something to eat while enjoying the hot water... :)

  14. Ive been to only a few Hot Springs, one is in Pansol, Calamba Laguna
    and the other one is in Coron, Busuanga (Maquinit Hot Springs)
    They're such an unforgetable bath experience, really loosens tired muscles,
    especially in Coron, after perhaps a long day of island hopping or trekking Mt Tapyas.

  15. What a medicinal or therapeutic place of water or spring. This reminds me also of our local summer resort here somewhere in Mambucal, Murcia, Negros Ocidental. There is a hot spring which could cook several pieces of eggs and there is another one, a sulfuric spring, which could cure some skin diseases.

  16. Comparable siguro to Pansol famous hot spring resorts. Pwedeng maluto ang itlog? ang init naman nyan.

    ReplyDelete
  17. wow!!okay sana kaya lang malayo sya for sure the place is worth the travel

    ReplyDelete
  18. I was able to try a similar attraction in Coron, Palawan. I should really see Surigao del Norte too.

  19. I don't think I have been to an actual hot spring resort, this looks like another good place to visit with friends or family.

  20. Swimming on a hot spring sulfuric water is what I always wanted to experience. Yes, I haven't got the chance to do it and your post (along with the photos) really makes me wanted to try it ASAP.

  21. I am just hoping that they can continue to make this clean and green so it will last longer and in the long run will contribute to its tourism industry.

    ReplyDelete
  22. From the name itself (Mapaso) you can already identify that it is hot, and its ironic that the name is cool though! :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Pinoy na pinoy ang magluto ng itlog sa hot springs!!
