Guimaras: Our Lady of the Philippines Trappist Abbey

Source: Mr Wiki

Guimaras is located in Panay Gulf, between the islands of Panay and Negros, Western Visayas region. To the northwest is the province of Iloilo and to the southeast is Negros Occidental. It is well-known for its agricultural crops, particularly mangoes, where some 50,000 of these trees are planted. The island is famous for producing the sweetest mangoes in the world, after Pakistan.

It has been our personal mission to look for the sweetest mango the moment we set foot on Guimaras. I've read so much about Guimaras; about the people, the cool ambiance and it's unspoiled wonders. And oh, for the love of food, did I forget to mention about the mangoes?

Day 1: Horrid Beasts
It was almost 7:00PM when our plane landed at the Iloilo International Airport. Discussing the activities for the night, we trolled out of the airport while attempting to contact our first who arrived in the province way ahead of us.
