Ozamiz

Ozamiz, located in the Misamis Occidental province, is notably close to Zamboanga del Sur and Zamboanga del Norte. It is also 52 kilometers away from the famous Maria Cristina Falls which is known to provide hydroelectric power to the Mindanao region. The city of Ozamiz is said to have come from the word “Misamis,” derived from the word “Kuyamis,” a coconut. The city proper is primarily agricultural, and it also enjoys a lot of shopping areas like the Gaisano Capital Mall.

The feast of Our Lady of Triumph of the Cross at Cotta Shrine is celebrated every 16th of July and proves to be a major event in the city, as it is also their Charter City Anniversary. To those looking for scenery and hiking, there are plenty of destinations to choose from, such as the Hoyohoy Highland Park, where the longest zipline in Asia is found. The thrill in this zipline is going from one mountain to another, with breathtaking views of the forestry and rivers underneath.

Visit Cotta Fort, a Spanish fortress built in 1756, contains a small museum featuring the history of the city and its people. Enjoy the view of the Cotta Beach and spot the lighthouse nearby. Visit the Mt. Malindang Natural Park, the Misamis Occidental Aquamarine Park, and the Naomi Botanical Gardens for more hiking adventures and picturesque views of Mindanao.
