WHERE TO STAY IN CORON, BEACHFRONT ACCOMMODATION IN CORON & HOW TO TRAVEL CORON WITHOUT REGRET
AVOID THE BIGGEST MISTAKE!
If you only read one of our blogs this might be it, and I hope it reaches you before you book your accommodation in Coron. It will take you 3 minutes and will most likely change your whole trip to Coron in Palawan for the better.
OK, Here goes...
Are you younger than 60 years old? Physically healthy?
If so, it's very unlikely you should want to stay in a hotel in Coron at all...
Now forgive me, but I’m going to assume you don’t know that much about Coron, if you did, you would know it only has two things on it’s land to offer tourists that are worth visiting.
The first is Mt Tapyas and the second is the Maquinit Hot Springs, both of these places are awesome and well worth a visit and can be done in an afternoon.
Apart from these two, there is very little worth visiting in Coron itself.
Everything else is out on the water.
If you look at Trip Advisor top things to do in Coron these are the only two actually in Coron out of the top 30! And almost all of them are at least 1-2 hours away boat ride from Coron town.
Coron has no beaches that are easily accessible.
Now, I would reccomend if you have an extra day in Coron to rent bikes and do a road trip and head to the beaches a couple hours away, but this wouldn't rank in the top things to do, is more if you have the spare day.
OK, so Why Bother Going to Coron at all?Well, because when you take those boat rides away you are met with absolute wonder and beauty which makes it all so worth it. Places like Kayangan Lake, Sunken WW2 Shipwrecks, Black Island, Coral Garden etc.
But, there's another snag!
But it isn’t.
It makes ALL THE DIFFERENCE!
OK, that's it!
How do I actually do this?
