A Quick Guide to Coron, Palawan

Life is good when we are having fun, indeed! Despite of the hustle and bustle of the city life, one can always escape and live a life that would make him or her rejuvenate his or her lost senses. As for my case, traveling nearby by land or by air is one my sweet escapes from crazy and chaotic metropolis. Don’t let the stress gets in, there’s always a fresh air to breath somewhere out there.

Thus, when I got an opportunity to visit Coron, Palawan, I quickly grabbed the offer. Who says NO to its beauty, pristine sea water, magnificent limestone cliff, lush green mountains, rich flora and fauna, and breath taking islands? Aside from it'll be my first time to visit this cerulean paradise and I’m sure I’ll keep coming back there because it really captured my heart and I know there’s more to explore. Yeah, I still don’t have the postcard photo with the Twin Lagoon, so wait for my comeback. Ha-ha.

Meanwhile, let me share with you guys some of the wheres, whats and hows of this trip and plus a 3-day and 2-night itinerary for the first-timer (Or perhaps, for someone who just like to have a relaxing vacation like I did.) So, here's a quick travel guide to Coron, Palawan. You're welcome!

What to Do?

Island Hopping! …and lots of it! A day or two is not enough to explore Coron as it is composed of many breath-taking islands such as Kayangan Lake, Twin Lagoon, CYC Island, Pass Island and many more. 

Have a relaxing afternoon at Maquinit Hot Spring afterwards, surely it will soothes your aching body and muscles. 

Looking for an adventure, conquer the 700+ steps of Mt. Tapyas and indulge with the stunning view of Coron during sunrise or sunset.

Culion Island is also worth a visit. Visit the century old built in Spanish era, The Church of Immaculate Conception, learn about leprosy and how the town of Culion coped up through visiting Culion Museum and Archive
