It's More Fun in the Philippines: Coron, Palawan

Sun, sand, and sea.

As a Tourism student in the University of the Philippines, I was able to visit quite a number of destinations all over the archipelago, each having its own distinct character. Coron doesn't only have sparkling white sand beaches to hang out in. We barely had time to rest because there's just so much to do that you wouldn't want to miss out on! We went snorkelling, explored different islands, lakes, and springs, trekking, mountain climbing, and doing things kids do when lost in paradise!

If you're a budget traveler, you can find cheap accommodations that offer tours along with your stay. I have no complaints about the food, scenery, activities, and people. They could work on better crowd management and maintenance of facilities, but overall, you get great value for money. Try everything they offer, it'll be worth it! 

Here are some photos I took during our field trip to Coron last year:

Breathtaking view while mountain climbing

Reached Mt. Tapyas! The trail is steep, it's as if someone literally sliced a part of the mountain with a knife.
View from the top
Twin Lakes. Sometimes it's cold, and the next minute, the water feels warm.

The Barracuda Lake. Yes, a giant barracuda actually lives here, and attracts divers all over the world.
The food in Palawan is amazingly delicious and cheap!

Do yourself a favor and visit Subasco Bar. Don't ask, just do it! ;)


  1. Aaaaw. Coron is on my bucket list. Do you have any contact number? :)

    1. Hi, Ann! :) I don't have any contact numbers from accommodations/ tour providers there, but I'm sure it won't be hard to find one over the internet! :) You should really give it a visit! :)

  2. Never been to Coron. Nung inaaya ako ng pisan ko to go to Coron di naman pwede sa schedule ko. Hope to visit coron one day!

    1. Sayang! :) Next time, you should schedule it with your family and have loads of fun in the sun! :)
