Quirino is a land-locked province situated in the northeastern part of the Philippine’s Luzon Island group. It is made up of six municipalities and is bordered by the provinces of Isabela on its north side, Aurora on its south-east and Nueva Vizcaya on its west. This beautiful province is named after former Philippine president Elpidio Quirino.
The province has huge and pristine caves for spelunking, river rapids for canoeing and tubing, uniquely carved mountain gorges, vibrant rolling hills that can rival those in Batanes, and as of the last count, twenty waterfalls (within its land area)
Tourist destinations in Quirino offer more to eco-adventurers more than the usual sight-seeing travelers. It is one of the most underrated places in the Philippines for tourism, but this place has so much to offer once discovered.
