Mangyan Heritage Center comprises a souvenir shop and a small library dedicated to Mindoro Island's aborigines, the Mangyans. The library catalogues more than 2,000 documents about the life and culture of Mangyans. Research materials include books, theses, and articles from magazines, and local and international newspapers. Several documents in the library come from anthropologists such as Harold Conklin of the United States of America, Dr. Masaru Miyamoto and Yasushi Kikuchi of Japan, and Antoon Postma of Netherlands. The last is hailed as a Mangyan expert, having worked and lived among the Mangyans since 1965. Meanwhile, the souvenir shop sells items created by the Mangyans themselves. Some of the items include woven baskets, beaded bracelets, pen holders, kitchen utensils, wooden musical instruments, and handbooks on Mangyan culture.
Calapan Airport offers scenic flights around Calapan City and its neighboring towns. A scenic flight costs P12,800* per hour for the fuel and airplane rental, and an additional charge of P800 per hour for the pilot's professional fee. Calapan Airport is a secondary airport that is used for general aviation, particularly choppers and chartered airplanes. It also serves as a training ground for aspiring pilots and aviation technicians.
Mayabig River is a community river reserved for swimming, washing clothes, irrigation, and unfortunately, white stone mining. Facing Mt. Halcon, the river is wide and shallow, with one select deep area for jumping off from a cemented ledge. On an ordinary day, kids back-dive into the deep area, some wash their clothes from the riverbank, while others rummage among the rocks, looking for white stones. Meanwhile, part of the water is redirected into a canal, where the water is used for the rice fields in the area. Cottages nearby can also be rented out for P200 each.
