AIRPORT SHOP AT DEPARTURE TERMINAL: LAST CHANCE TO BUY PEARLS
Should you decide to buy pearls at the last moment there is an air-conditioned shop inside the airport which sells pearl necklaces and other jewelry. Around the islands there are many pearl farms and pearls are cheaper here than in other parts of the Philippines, but be sure to bargain hard.
What to buy: Don't forget to try Coron's "Ballpen pusit" (Php100/pack). Very delicious and tasty, especially when dipped in vinegar with garlic and pepper. Also try their Danggit. Kinda unique, not like your usual dried ones, but soft and marinated well (Php 300/kilo at The Village Lodge but others sell it at a lesser price. I just cannot vouch for the quality because Village Lodge's tastes very good!
Not much Coron souvenirs can be bought. The t-shirts I found (selling at Php 140-Php 180 depending on the color and size) are limited.
