Guimaras is an island province southeast of Panay, and northwest of Negros in Western Visayas. It is blessed with white sand beaches, vast agricultural land, a panoramic view of the hills, picturesque coves, and offshore islets. It consists of five municipalities – Jordan, Buenavista, Nueva Valencia, Sibunga, and San Lorenzo. It is known for its Manggahan festival, a yearly celebration anchored on the bountiful mangoes dubbed as the sweetest in the world. The festival’s representatives portray dances featuring several steps involved in rice farming and mango production. It also depicts the development of the province into a must-see destination.
