Explore the subterranean wonders of Marinduque with this guided day tour to Bagumbungan Cave. If you love nature and adventure and want to see what the island province can offer apart from its fine beaches, then this trip should not be missed.
After you are picked up from your accommodation around Marinduque, you will make your way to the town of Sta. Cruz, where the Bagumbungan Cave is located. Once you arrive at the town, you will head straight to the jump-off, where your guide will discuss the rules and regulations before you enter this protected area. You will be given your caving gear, too.
After the short orientation, your guide will lead you inside the cave. Take a look at the fascinating stalactites and stalagmites found here and try to identify what shapes the rock formations take. Once you descend deeper into the cave, you will reach the waist-deep underground river basin. Be prepared to walk on slippery surfaces, duck into narrow passages, and even slither through tight spots. If you love adventurous activities like this, you would definitely love the Bagumbungan Cave.
Once you finish your caving adventure, you will be rewarded with a hearty boodle fight lunch, where the meal is served on long banana leaves. Feel free to dig into the meal with your bare hands and enjoy the local dishes served. Shortly after the meal, you will head to Poblacion, Sta. Cruz for some sightseeing. You will check out the Sta. Cruz Cathedral, the oldest church in Marinduque. It has withstood several earthquakes since its construction in the 16th century.
From Poblacion, you will have a short stop at Rejano’s Bakery. The bakery is popular for their bestseller delicacy, the arrowroot cookies. Make sure to try some of the cookies and buy the other baked goods sold here before you go back to your hotel.
