Kasiguranin (Casiguranin) is the language of Casiguran town in the northern Philippines. It is descended from an early Tagalog dialect that had borrowed heavily from Northeastern Luzon Agta languages.[3]

Dilasag, Dinapigue, Maconacon, and Divilacan are primarily Ilokano-speaking towns just to the north of Casiguran.
