Today, Jagna is the place from where you can embark in the direction of Mindanao. While you pass here, don't hesitate to have a taste of the local delicacy, calamay, a mixture of sticky rice, coconut milk, and sugar, packed in a coconut shell, which are then joined together with a characteristic red ribbon.
