Tabogon is bordered on the north by the city of Bogo, to the west by the town of San Remigio, on the east by the Camotes Sea, and on the south by the town of Borbon.

Tabogon may come from the archaic Visayan word, tabog, which means "busy", in reference to the bustling and busy farm fields that dotted this place during the olden times, hence, tabogon, means a busy workplace or any place that is busy with work.[4]
