Mindoro covers 10,572 sq km (4,081 sq mi) and has a population of slightly over a million people. Until 1950, Mindoro was administered as a single province. Since then it is divided into the province of Occidental Mindoro and Oriental Mindoro.

The island of Mindoro is still rural, with its population dependent on agriculture. Among the crops grown on the island includes bananas, citrus, rambutan and coconuts.

Mindoro is also becoming a popular tourist destination, partly due to its relative proximity to Manila. The people speak Tagalog, though many are now fluent in English. Contact with Chinese traders for hundred of years means that there is a small community of ethnic Chinese speaking the Fukien dialect similar to Taiwan, Singapore, Penang and Fujian Province of China.
