Calapan is also Mindoro’s urban and trade center. It has been ever since the original Mangyans and Chinese settlers started trading.

A two-hour ride from Calapan City is Bongabong. This interestingly-named place has historic church ruins, inland marine farms and a seafront complete with palms and foot paths.

Bird-lovers will enjoy scouting interesting species at Lake Naujan National Park, on the northeast coast of Mindoro.

The other wildlife in the area includes the Mindoro “Bleeding Heart” bird, milkfish and crocodiles.
