LGU - Caba - Profile

The proud birthplace of Diego Silang, a monument of the National Hero stands at the Town Plaza, reminding Caba’s contribution to the cause of freedom and liberty during the Spanish Era. A monument of President Elpidio Quirino, along past local leaders stands at the crossing of the national highway in Barangay Gana. The first Ilocano President, served as elementary public school teacher in Caba before his entry to politics. A stretch of stalls selling fresh mangoes, Bagoong, Padas and Alamang, adorn the same area. Its hues of green and yellow never fail to catch the attention of passing motorists. Its local bamboo furniture has also become an identity of the Municipality. Its intricate designs which are carefully crafted are directly bought by customers beside the highway where it is displayed. The products are made by farmers who utilize their time after the rice-planting season.

Located in between Aringay from the South and Bauang in the North, Caba is also passed by buses plying the Manila-Laoag City route which makes it accessible 24 hours a day. It is around 247 kilometers away from Mega Manila which translates to about four hours and 45 minutes of drive by land. A tricycle terminal is located at the plaza for travelers any time of the day.

The local Filipino sidecar public transport serves as the main form of transportation in the internal barangays, especially for those going to resorts offering jet skis and boat rides which are located in the coastal area of the town. For those who prefer hiking and camping, Mt. Kimmallugong is awaiting to be explored.

Caba is a grand slam champion for the Search for Cleanest and Greenest Municipality in La Union under the 4th-5th Class Municipality Category for 2006, 2007 and 2008; Regional Level winner and National Finalist, Seal of Good Housekeeping in 2010; and 2010 Provincial Champion for the Search for Best Performing LGU based on Local Governance Performance Measurement System.

Red letter days include April 15 to 18, the town fiesta and June 24, the Feast of Saint John the Baptist. In celebration of the Christmas Season, the town also holds the annual Paskua Ti Umili every December.
