Inagta Rinconada (Mount Iriga Agta) is a Bikol language spoken by a semi-nomadic hunter-gatherer Agta (Negrito) people of the Philippines. It is spoken to the east of Iriga City up to the shores of Lake Buhi. It is largely intelligible with Mount Iraya Agta on the other side of the lake.

The Rinconada Agta live primarily in forests near rural barangays of Buhi, Iriga (including a settlement in the Ilian area), and Baao in Camarines Sur (Lobel 2013:68).
