Conquer Coron



Coron, Palawan..Im in LOVE!


I had a vacation in Coron, Palawan last Nov 13-16. I wanna deviate from the usual birthday celebration here so the Cebu Pacific seat sale to Busuanga last July was very timely.

Coron spells paradise. Our group suddenly became cam whores with the magnificent view of the place.=)

1st day- Mt. Tapyas and Makinit Hot Spring.
It was at least 720 steps atop Mt. Tapyas. Coming from a foot injury a week before my Coron trip, the climb was a struggle. We were literally catching our breaths. And how are leg muscles have grown! But the view from the deck was spectacular!

ganito kataas ang Mt. Tapyas..our feet were literally shaking after the climb..whew!

It was almost 7pm when we arrived at Makinit Hot Spring. And man, it was HOT! Got no pictures to show as it was already dark when we arrived there.

2nd day- Sangat Tour: Tangat Gun Boat, Sangat Island Reserve, Lunch at Calumbuyan Island, Coral Garden and Lusong Gun Boat.

Seen: Japanese shipwrecks, white beach, rock formations, beautiful snorkeling grounds.
