Iloilo is a province located in the region of Western Visayas in the Philippines. Iloilo occupies a major southeast portion of the island of Panay and is bordered by the province of Antique to the west, Capiz to the north, the Jintotolo Channel to the northeast, the Guimaras Strait to the east, and the Iloilo Strait and Panay Gulf to the southwest. Just off Iloilo's southeast coast is the island province of Guimaras, once part of Iloilo but now an independent province. Across the Panay Gulf and Guimaras Strait is Negros Occidental, occupying the northeastern half of the island of Negros. Guimaras is situated east of Panay Island and was once part of the province of Iloilo before it became independent. It is known much for its sweet mangoes which is one of the main incomes of most families. Agri-tourism is one of its main industries, capitalizing on Guimaras’ white-sand beaches, island coves, and mango plantations.
