Coron lies at the northern tip of Palawan and is said to be part of the Calamian Group. Palawan has two airports and one must book Busuanga if you are to go to Coron. The other airport is in Puerto Princesa, the gateway to the Underground River. Travel time is approximately 1 hour.
When you avail of the services of DIY Coron, part of the package include airport transfers, island hopping, accommodation with breakfast, tour around town, lunch during your island hopping and snorkeling gears rental. I didn't have any problems with them. Owen and his staff, Judith have been very helpful.
Part of the itinerary during that time were climbing the 700+ steps to reach the giant cross at Mt. Tapyas, dipping into Maquinit Hot Springs, snorkeling in the clear emerald waters of Siete Picados and Twin Lagoon, basking into the beauty of Kayangan Lake, Banul Beach and Barracuda Lake (there are no more barracudas here, so it's safe) and diving into a shipwreck (which I am just such a chicken and didn't dare to do).
How to get there: Cebu Pacific and Airphil Express has regular flights from Manila to Busuanga. Check out their websites for the schedule and promo prices. :-)
Recommended eats: Try the kare-kare and buttered lobsters at Kawayanan Grill Station located at the town proper. Also don't forget to try some cashews at the Coron Harvest store.
Recommended sleep HQ: Darayonan Lodge
Recommended tour package: DIY Coron by Owen Ferrer III. He has a lot of packages that you can choose from and you can even customize your trip if you want.
What to bring home: Souvenir items such as shirts, keychains or magnets sold on stores located in the town proper. On your last day in Coron, you can also pass by the public market to get some dilis (anchovies) and dangit. They are quite cheap out there.
