What’s in Misamis Occidental?

What’s in Oroquieta City, Misamis Occidental? This sleepy part of the Philippines surprisingly has its own Aquamarine Park! While it’s not as big and glitzy as, say, Manila Ocean Park or Ocean Adventure in Subic, Misamis Occidental’s Aquamarine Park has its own charm.

For one, it has this long walkway that leads you to a big hut offering a beautiful view of the sea.

Second, the aquamarine park, with its sea creatures, is situated beside a zoo, with its forest creatures, in particular, monkeys…lots and lots of monkeys of all shapes and persuasions.

And third, the Aquamarine Park is a work in progress, so there’s lots of potential for this place, especially since it’s located in Mindanao, a very resource-rich part of the Philippines.

If you ever find yourself in this part of the country, be sure to visit this place!
