Caraga is a municipality at the eastern part of Davao Oriental. It is believed to be the easternmost part of the country thus entitling it as the town that experiences the country's first sunrise.
The name Caraga is derived from the local term kalag, which means "soul" or "spirit". Early Caraguenos believed in the spirits of nature (spirit of the trees, moon, sun, etc.).
Another possible origin of the town's name is the word kagang, which refers to a gathering of small crabs. It was believed that early Spanish settlers named the town as such after seeing a number of small crabs gather at the shore. Because the Spaniards could not pronounce kagang correctly, it gave way to the mispronounced term "caraga" which eventually became the town's name. This story is less-accepted compared to the first as it gave birth to the belief that Caraguenos have a crab mentality.
Caraga is politically subdivided into 17 barangays.
