It is the former provincial capital of Agusan Del Norte. Butuan City is also the home of the balanghais (large boat) that were excavated in the mid-'70s and are believed to have been used as early 320AD. Agusan del Norte is famous for its crystal clear water, verdant landscapes, captivating caves, pear-shaped lake, and waterfalls. Butuan City also serves as a getaway to other parts of the province.

Highlights attractions in Butuan

  • Agusan River - Agusan River is a long and wide stretch of clear water and gorgeous views. It’s the third largest river basin in all of the country and is a great place to spend a relaxed afternoon.

From the river, you’ll be able to see the Balangay Boat Replica, Banza Church Ruins, Kayam Forest, and Magsaysay Bridge. Fees are charged depending on the mode of transportation you hire.
  • Delta Discovery Park – Adventure and thrill seekers should pay a visit to Delta Discovery Park. At the park, you can go swimming, take photos of the breathtaking views in Butuan, play in zorb balls, or enjoy the park's beautiful blend of man-made and natural design. Even going to Delta Discovery Park is an adventure in itself as you’ll be required to take a 4x4 jeep. The highlight, though, of Delta Discovery Park is its zip line. It is the second longest zip line in all of Asia at 1.3 kilometers. The zip line will offer you an amazing bird's eye view of Butuan while coursing through the sky for more time than what usual ziplines provide.
  • Balangay Shrine Museum – For those interested to learn more about Butuan history, can head to the Balangay Shrine Museum. Here travelers can learn more about the Balangay — or Balanghai — long boats locally crafted in Butuan. Balanghais are considered national cultural treasures, so if you're a fan of art and how culture shapes it, Balangay Shrine Museum would be a great addition to your itinerary. Here, you can find an archeological museum showcasing the Balanghai, including its three most important parts (the wingstem, plank, and frame), wooden coffins, human skulls, and earthen pots. It's not a famous tourist destination per se, but it is a treat for travelers who are curious about different cultures. Located in Sitio Ambangan in Libertad, Balangay Shrine Museum has no entrance fee but does accept donations.
