Bugo and Puerto are Cagayan de Oro City’s easternmost barangays.

Bugo is where the famed Del Monte Cannery is located. Pineapple from Del Monte’s plantations in Bukidnon are processed here to become canned juice, cocktails, tidbits, among others. Traffic in its premises is observed particularly during change of shifts as hundreds of factory workers cross the highway. A pedestrian bridge and sidewalk railings helped solve the problem.

The construction of the Puerto Flyover eased the traffic at the Sayrhe Highway junction. However, traffic continue to pester commuters and motorists near the foot of the said flyover as it approaches the pedestrian overpass crossing towards Puerto Public Market area due to lack of discipline among the locals in the area.
