In Barangay San Roque, at 9 ° 13'N and 125 ° 57'East, the "Sua cool spring" is located, which has been developed as a (jungle) outdoor pool with 3 pools. Since the outdoor pool is only about 500 m as the crow flies south of the "Esperanza integrated school", locals often just call this place "Esperanza". This can lead to misunderstandings, since Barangay Esperanza, directly to the east, already belongs to the municipality of Carmen (Surigao del Sur) . The spring bubbles - almost like a fountain - directly into the upper swimming pool. Covered seating with tables is available, and there is even a tiled water slide. The way from the settlement center to this open-air swimming pool leads, however, what feels like 2 km over a gravel road, which can only be tackled with trucks or motorcycle taxis. Tricycles don't stand a chance. The admission price is customary for the location, drinks and snacks are offered.
Like all of Mindanao, Madrid has a tropical climate. The average monthly rainfall is 257.2 mm. The rainy season is from November to March, the dry season from April to September. But even in the latter there are often evening showers and thunderstorms, which the locals call Sobasco . The area is occasionally hit by typhoons.
