MIMAROPA Region is composed of islands and islets stretching across the warm tropical seas south of Southern Luzon.
It is made up of the Provinces of Oriental Mindoro, Occidental Mindoro, Marinduque, Romblon, Palawan and the cities of Calapan City and Puerto Princesa City.
It is also composed of seventy-two (72) municipalities and one thousand four hundred fifty-five (1,455) barangays.
Its northernmost tip is bounded by Batangas and Quezon provinces while the southernmost portion by Panay Island and west by South China Sea.
It has a total land area of 2.74M hectares representing 9% of the country's land area.
There are two things that best describe this region, a "food basket" of Southern Luzon and an "eco-tourism hub" of the country.
If there is anything MIMAROPA can offer the Philippines and the world, is its culture - the oldest of its traditions,
the most colorful of its festivals, the richest and most scenic of its natural attractions, and the warmest welcome from its people.
The Region is endowed with pristine beaches and wondrous natural resources.
To name a few, there is Puerto Galera, the pearl of Oriental Mindoro, which is internationally renowned for its white sand beaches and crystal-clear waters,
as well as, its spectacular diving sites; Palawan being the home of the world-famous and awesome Puerto Princesa Underground River (PPUR),
and the Apo Reef Marine National Park of Occidental Mindoro, the second largest reef in the world, populated by some 385 species of colorful marine life.
