Coron: Relaxing swim at Maquinit Hot Spring

choice24mainThe Maquinit hot spring is part of a tour that includes the Mt. Tapyas, taking a tricycle. Right after descending from the 700+ steps of the mountain, we found our tricycle waiting for us down the start of the climb and we drive through the dark street to the hot spring. It got bumpy as we’re nearing the place and pitch black, a bit creepy intensified by the cold rain. It’s a long drive to there.Read more: Coron: Relaxing swim at Maquinit Hot Spring

Coron: Mt. Tapyas

choice7mainSo there we were on our first day in Coron, tired from the one hour flight from Puerto Pricnesa, we were steered through the streets of Coron to the start of the climb by the tricycle driver. This maybe the first tour everyone has been offered upon arrival in Coron. The tricycle ride costs PHP200 which includes 2 destinations, Mount Tapyas and Maquinit Hot Spring. Read more: Coron: Mt.

Coron: Island Hopping Tour C

choice6mainPersonally, I felt that this is the most boring tour among the 3 tours I did, everyone else recommend this tour, they say this could be the highlight of a stay in Coron. For me it just didn’t quite beat the mark. The sceneries are great, the beaches are fabulous, the sights are amazing, perhaps the people in the tour are just so tired.Read more: Coron: Island Hopping Tour C

Coron: Island Hopping Tour B

choice5mainThis is our second island hopping boat tour in Coron, it’s called Tour B. We booked the island hopping Tour B with our accommodation in Coron. There were only 3 of us on the boat, but that did not last long, 3 more joined in the last minute, 2 guys from France, a Chinese, and 3 of us locals. Read more: Coron: Island Hopping Tour B

Coron: Island Hopping Tour A

choice4mainCoron just like El Nido is an island hopping town in Palawan. Similarly, the town offer 4 to 5 sets of island hopping boat tours. Tour A, as it is called, is the most popular one and I don’t really want to contradict that, not sure though if it’s really that good. My senses got partially numbed seeing beautiful sights for the past 2 weeks, in with El Nido.Read more: Coron: Island Hopping Tour A
