Historical Background

Long time ago, this Barangay called CACAO today had no name of its own. But this place has a trail which passes through the middle in going up the nearby mountain of rain forest, where hunters and prospective farmers from Barangay Cabaluay and other neighboring Barangays, use to hunt wild animals.

Being rocky and stony, and slippery during rainy season, Cacao is an extensive open plain or savannah. So that people passing this way during sunny days find comfort to relax underneath an evergreen tree near the trail. And this tree with the abundant green leaves was later on known to be cacao. The seed of Cacao fruit is delicious and sweet when made into Cocoa and chocolate.
