Coron, Palawan is located on Busuanga Island , the northern tip of Palawan in the Philippines . It is halfway from both Manila and Puerto Princesa (the capital city of the province of Palawan ).
If you are going to Coron, it is likely that Coron town will be your base as this is where you can find accommodation, restaurants and establishment offering various tour packages. Coron is a noisy, slightly smoggy town due to the endless throbbing of motorbike engines.
I went to Coron 6 months ago and it has never left my mind and it was a pleasant surprise for me. I didn't imagine such a beautiful place existed in the Philippines .
The highlights of my holiday in Coron were Island hopping, which I also did in Hundred Islands of Pangasinan, snorkelling around the islands, eating fresh sea foods from the local market and watching the stunningly beautiful ocean sunsets from the top of Mt. Tapyas.
The most enjoyable part was the island hopping tour. I felt like I was among the creatures under the sea at siete pecados.
The twin lagoon was so amazing! The water was funny with the top layer warm and below my waist cool! It was eerie, it was sensational.
The Maquinit hot spring was muscle relaxing. It is a two circular pools with hot salt water continuously overflowing. It is about 20 minutes from town through rough and dusty roads. The place is surrounded by old mangrove trees. The water was hot! then became bearable, then became soothing and relaxing.
The Kayangan lake was wonderful! You have to trek up and down to the rocky steps to the other side. It was a tour worth remembering.
Everywhere you turn in Coron, you will see majestic limestone cliffs, lakes and beaches.
You will have a varied choice of activities available to you. Relax and ease your pains as you take a dip in a salt water hot spring. Surprise yourself with an African safari. Challenge your skills at deep sea fishing. Moreover, the numerous islands and white sand beaches offer a great opportunity for island hopping.
Over-all, I cannot wait to come back to Coron!
