Ambos Camarines is a defunct historical province in the northern end of the Bicol Peninsula. It was established in 1579 with Nueva Caceres (now Naga City) as its capital.

In the last decades of Spanish colonialization, the province underwent a series of confusing geopolitical divisions, fusion, re-division, and re-fusion, until 10 March 1917 when Ambos Camarines was finally separated into the present-day provinces of Camarines Norte and Camarines Sur with Daet and Naga City as their capital respectively.
