MUNICIPALITY OF TAGBILARAN

In 1957, Abucayan Norte was created from the sitios of Cabulihan and Cabinong and Abucayan Sur from the sitios of Rama and Bino. On the other hand, the sitios of Binogawan, Masonoy, Bentig, Cahayag, and Lawis were constituted into barrios too.

Its name is derived from cape, either referring to specie of rattan or to a plant that is the source of a common beverage, both of which still grow abundantly there until now.
