In this Municipality, you can visit and experience the famous double island, white water tube rafting, enjoy white sand beaches, and discover Tau’t Bato Tribe along with their culture. Isn’t it interesting? The Rizal mountains have minerals (such as silica, shale, gold, sand and gravel), wildlife, rare fauna and flora.

Rizal was part of the Municipality of Quezon and became an independent municipality way back in April 14, 1983, and was named as Municipality of Marcos. In 1987, under Republic No. 6652 it was renamed as Municipality of Dr. Jose P. Rizal and belongs to the first class municipality. It consists of 11 barangays : Bunog,Campong Ulay, Candawaga, Canipaan, Culasian, Iraan, Latud, Panalingaan, Punta Baja, Ransang and Taburi.

Tau't Bato Tribe

There are several tribes in the mountains and along coastal areas. One of them was the Tau’t Bato Tribe that lives in Signapan Valley, Barangay Ransang. Signapan Valley is a bowl-shaped cave and consists of 176 types of limestones, often called Tau't bato Cave. This area can be reached in approximately 5-7 hours from the national roads.

The first woman in Tau't Bato Tribe who holds a degree is Juda Diklay, finished her Bachelor’s Degree in Elementary Education from the Western Philippines University (WPU) in Puerto Princesa, Palawan. It created a history in Tau’t Bato Tribe. This proves that indigenous people could adapt modern and social activities downtown.

Green Lagoon

Relax and dip into the cold water and refresh your mind, in the river. It is located in Barangay Culasian. The river from the mountain downstreams are used by locals for everyday use. As of now, there is a mini-hydro structure in the Culasian River.

Waterfalls

Waterfalls are such a beauty of nature, the sounds of water falling down and the green forest that surrounds enhanced the natural area. There are 8 waterfalls in rizal, which are:

• Muslod Falls in Campung Ulay
• Buar-Buar Falls in Ransang
• Turbong Falls in Punta Baja
•Mantayob and Ilian Falls in Bunog
•Madiplak, Kinaruwayan, and Gamay Falls in Iraan

Aside from this you can also visit the Double Island, Bungawon Natural pool and taste local foods. There are many resorts along the place but I highly recommend to book hotels before your departure to check that suits you and avoid confusion. All in all, this island serves natural tourist spots.

There are also events celebrated like Araw ng Katutubo ( Day of the Ancient), Tau’t Bato Festival in which the government holds tribal games, tribal song contests, and dance competitions. These festivals are focused on the indegenous people to help and share their culture with other Filipino’s and tourists.
