Our flight is around 9:45AM and we're about the leave when this picture was taken at around 6 AM.
I would rather Coron than Puerto Princesa due to the higher number of tourists going there after just being included in the list of 7 Wonders of the nature last 2011.
In the south of Manila, Las Pinas, is our popular bus line Tas Trans, transporting us to Mia Road, Pasay.
This time, we tried getting on a jeepney to get there. Unfortunately, we learned that it doesn't take the shortest route at doesn't leave immediately unless filled. Coincidentally, a few minutes after leaving, the vehicle lost its transmission and is unable to move.
From there on, we will never take the jeepney again and just accept the higher cost of the taxi cab.
To your left is the charging station.
Click on the image for the image for the enlargement. My camera has a fixed lens so it can't zoom but the image below is a shot of a Cebu Pacific plane flying beneath us. It was flying faster and learning later that it was also headed to Busuanga airport and got there earlier.
The Cebu Pacific plane which was way faster than ours, look at those bags.
Read my blog post of Coron last year to find reasons not to stay in his lodge, here.
Sea Dive Resort but they weren't able to give us a group discount making Coron Village Lodge our choice.
It's not bad here but the overall quality is typical Coron, not comparable to rooms in Boracay which is better for the same price.
As you might have noticed by now, I keep shooting the same scene below. I was shooting the mountain across the waters which appears to be a sleeping person to which the Coron residents call this, the "Sleeping Giant".
The next time I'll be back to Coron, I'm going to get that sunset and just refuse going to Maquinit Hot springs because of the reasons I will tell you below.
If you're the kind with sensitive skin, I don't recommend taking a dip to these waters. Possibly, you can by resting your tired feet and legs from the climb to Mt. Tapyas under the water which feels good.
After this experience, I think, going here to Maquinit hot springs is not worth it for me especially that they don't have fresh water for shower or rinsing.
Fly to Coron, Palawan with the help of CNM Travel and Tours. They're the only agency that allow you to travel now and pay in a 6 month term at "zero" interest.
Go here at CNM's website to get their numbers and look for Khrizia regarding your inquiries. She will also help you get your contacts in Coron for hotel, transportation, and boat arrangements.
