Carmen is mainly an agricultural town that is gradually becoming a major destination with the opening of the Cebu Safari and Adventure Park. The town is also home to a number of historically-significant sites and some natural attractions. The town is home to the Durano Eco-Farm and the Middle Earth Resort.
The old image of the Santo Niño can be found in Barangay Luyang. Barangay Luyang is an old settlement in Carmen located close to the town center. The image is darker compared to the one Magellan gave to the wife of Rajah Humabon since it was made of wood with a darker color. According to stories, the image was left behind by either Ferdinand Magellan or the Spanish conquistador Miguel Lopez de Legazpi after he placed Cebu under Spanish control in 1565.
