Calinawan Cave came from the word “linaw” meaning bright, it is so ironic because it is dark inside the cave. But “linaw” in this case means clarification, because the Filipinos and Americans had a clarification in their agreement inside this cave.

The cave has 5 stages, but we just visited 2 to save time. There are crystals, stalagmites, and stalactites inside the cave. Just be careful not to touch them.
