PHILTOA, Inc. is an organization of tour operators and allied members actively involved in the advocacy of sustainable and inclusive tourism.
During their visit, they visited the Governor’s Rapids in Maddela and the Quirino Watersports Complex in Cabarroguis and they experienced the sceneries, culture and foods of the Quirinians.
Governor's Rapids which forms part of a tributary of the Cagayan River boasts of its crystal clear waters and it is a perfect place for swimming, boating, water tubing, spelunking, fishing and many more.
The tour operators also visited the Quirino Watersports Complex and experienced the services and amenities being offered such as Quirino delicacies, wakeboarding, natural sceneries, among others.
Congressman Junie E. Cua who is known as the ‘architect of Quirino’s development did not only welcome the group but he also served as tour guide during PHILTOA’s visit.
Cua shared to the group the tourism plan of the province which focuses on showcasing Quirino as a prime tourism destination not only in the North but in the entire country. (MDCT/TCB/PIA 2-Quirino)
