Municipality of Tuburan
Tuburan could be the next big tourism destination in the province of Cebu found north of Cebu City. It is a second-class municipality with a relatively larger than average territorial size of 246 sq. km. Agriculture and Fishing are the main livelihood but there is also a considerable presence of other industries like Merchandising and Manufacturing. Hon. Mayor Democrito Diamante currently leads the local government in his first term.
The municipality’s name is taken from the Visayan term “tubod” meaning, “spring” as it is endowed with at least 4 springs, apart from rivers and beaches. Tourism as an industry has a bright future in this municipality therefore, complementing the Province of Cebu. While many still derive their livelihood from agriculture and fishing, jewelry manufacturing, furniture making and even food production abound in the municipality. This vibrant local economy explains the presence of pawnshops and financial services companies.
