This is Maguindanao – Cotabato City

Cotabato City, Maguindanao and the surrounding area is known for a lot of negative things…

Now… I have to be realistic. If you are a foreign national you need to not only be educated on your surroundings in this part of Mindanao, but I strongly suggest (in fact you really must have connections, please don’t put yourself at risk) you only go to Cotabato or Maguindanao if you are with local people who know the area and who you really trust. As beautiful as Cotabato and Maguindanao can be… there are also unfortunately some areas of instability and people who do bad things.

But…

That certainly doesn’t mean that there are not a lot of SUPER GOOD PEOPLE and things to experience and appreciate!

Yup, I completely understand why Cotabateno’s are proud to call this area of the Philippines there home! There are some incredibly friendly people, there is some extremely vibrant culture, and the environment can really be beautiful!! I learned that on my first ever trip to this area of the Philippines!

This is a summary of that trip!
