The Visayas region
Located in the central part of the Visayas group of islands, Central Visayas is otherwise known as Region VII. It consists of the islands of Cebu, Bohol, Negros Oriental and Siquijor. Its borders are the Visayan Sea and the province of Masbate in the north, Mindanao Sea in the south, Negros Occidental in the west and the island of Leyte in the east. Central Visayas has 3 independent cities and 13 component cities.
Its provinces are:
Cebu City is the regional center. Urbanization is highest in Cebu and lowest in Siquijor.
Central Visayas is predominantly inhabited by an ethno linguistic group known as Cebuanos. Cebuano is the language widely spoken in all provinces in the region.
The region Central Visayas has no definite climate. It has a mostly dry season from December til May.
Central Visayas has limited land used for farming purposes as compared to other regions. Its major crops are sugar, coconut, rice, corn, tobacco and root crops. The mangoes of Cebu are also famous for its sweetness and size. Mangoes are harvested all year round and are exported to other countries. The waters surrounding the island provinces of the region are well-known fishing grounds.
Central Visayas has international airports and several excellent ports. Cebu is the center of commerce in the southern part of the Philippines. This is one reason why the Mactan International Airport was constructed. There are also airports in Dumaguete and in Tagbilaran City. Colorful jeepneys and buses are the major forms of public transport in all provinces in the region.
Tourism plays a big part in the economic development of Central Visayas. Tourists flock in the region to see the exotic beauty of the countryside and experience the hospitality of the Visayans. Among the popular destinations in the region are the Shrine of Magellan's Cross in Cebu and the pride of Bohol which is the Chocolate Hills.
The serenity of the whole province Siquijor makes it a perfect get-away. It is a haven for hikers, bikers and nature lovers. The highest peak at the center of the island, Mount Bandilaan is crowned with a man-made rain forest boasting of unexplored caves and a butterfly sanctuary where one of the biggest butterflies in Asia is found. The town of San Juan is home of the renowned Capilay Spring Park, a natural fresh water spring complemented with a swimming pool and park amenities. A never-ending stretch of white sandy beaches cover all 102 kilometers of shoreline surrounding the island. It is and ideal place for swimming, snorkeling, and other water sports. Its splendid array of coral formation, reef, and other marine life is a must see for scuba divers. The western part of the island gives premier seats to the view the most beautiful sunsets in the region. Waterfalls in Lazi and San Juan also give cooling respite from the island's tropical heat.
Some of the historical land marks are the old Cang-isok house, the bell tower of St. Francis of Asisi built in 1870 and the St. Isidore Labradore church and convent constructed in 1891, reputed to be one of the oldest and biggest in Asia.
Siquijodnons are peace-loving, friendly, hospitable and generous people making Siquijor one of the most peaceful island in the Philippines. However, Siquijodnons are very superstitious such that quack doctors and supposed healers abound on the island.

"A little piece of heaven"
This place is just fantastic. We love the island and it's people. The cottage is brand new with stunning views. At night you can star gaze or watch the 100's of fireflies. Snorkel off the beach is stunning. Great corals and drop off. Short walk to restaurants. Friendly hosts who go above and beyond the call to make your stay an unforgettable one. We love it so much that we have already booked it for our next holiday.
