Mindanao Road Trip : Cagayan de Oro to Dipolog City

Thanks for all those who shared tips on Bohol. Watch out for the ultimate guide on Bohol probably by end of the month.

I need your help again. I'm planning on a Mindanao Road Trip from Cagayan de Oro - Iligan City to Marine Oriental Aquamarine Park to Oroquieta, Ozamis City to Dapitan (Dakak) and finally to Dipolog City. These are a lot of towns to cover and I'm hoping to create an ultimate guide to those places. Any secret tips or must see places that we shouldn't miss?
