Philippines: Palawan: Coron: 6D 5N Itinerary


Sharing our 6D 5N (Feb 23-28, 2016) itinerary for Coron, Philippines.


Accommodation: Where to stay in Coron?
Coron Underwater Garden - They do provide airport shuttle and banca service to their place.  They have limited choice of breakfast (due to remotely located on an island). Although, there is too short shore line, you got to enjoy their manual water activities like canoe, paddle boat and stand-up paddle.  
Tip: For better island stay experience try to contact small huts in Banana Island. 

Seahorse Hotel (Brgy Poblacion 3, Coron Town) - This is a good spot in the city, surrounded by small tour shops, decent shakes or cafes, and there is small bbq stand in front.  There are nearby massage area as well. Close to convenience shops.  They can also prepare airport transfer. 

Highly recommended for group of 4s, the room that we got has stable bed, you will not feel the movement from the person above you (or below).  Inside the room, they have separated the sections from shower room, toilet, and open area wash room (at least 3 persons can already be accommodated in parallel time).


Best Time to Visit
Experience the shining water and sky during the early summer to heat wave summer of the country (February - April).  Refrain from visiting the typhoon season on July - November.

Transportation

Prepare your airport-to-city transfer with your hotel/accommodation.  While moving around the city, you can take tricycle anywhere.  When it comes to island tours, try to haggle from different guides, better to take the service from same company to have higher chances of getting discounts or bargain the price. (Better to pay as tips to the bangkero directly on what you have taken as a discount from the company.  Specially if you are a group who has been posting demands or requests to the kuyas in pulling you and keeping you safe while on the water - you better pay their effort and don't forget that smile of 'thank you'.
