    Bedst Travel Arrangement

    by cherish_pineda Updated Mar 28, 2008

    The best way to go, for those who just plan to stay in Coron for just 3 days and 2 nights, is to go there early Friday (or on your day 1), take the first or the only plane that goes there in the morning.

    Going back (on your day 3; in our case Sunday), take the ferry that leaves at around 9PM. You will reach Manila at 8AM.

    Taking the plane on your way back would mean preparing to go to the airport at around 11AM on your day 3 to be in the airport by 1PM which will be waste as there are a lot of places to explore.

    This way, your 3 days stay is maximized.

    19 Seater SEAIR plane

    by cherish_pineda Written Mar 28, 2008

    The only plane that travels to Coron during the time that we went there are Asian Spirit and SEAir. We took SEAair, and it's a very small 19 seater plane. The size is just like that of a small bus and the seating arrangement inside the plane is based on weight, should be balanced on both sides. Before, departing the stewardess conducted the briefing and gave candies and left us on our own. That's how small the plane was, no room even for the stewardess :-)

    Boat rentals

    taken during a tricycle ride in coron

    The Darayonan Lodge offers tour packages for island hopping inclusive of boat rental fees and entrance fees. However, if you prefer to arrange trips on your own, you may try to contact "Manong Ton", a local tricycle driver who we met in coron and who arranged an island hopping tour for us together with a local boatman we called "Manong Toks". We went to about 6-7 major snorkling spots (twin lagoon, barracuda lake, siete pecados, a ship wreck, kayangan, etc.) for around P1,500 for the whole boat for half a day.
    We were only 3 in the group but the boat could comfortably seat 8-10 people, it was in good condition and it has livevests (i can't swim so this is a must hehe!). The price is a bargain for such an activity-filled tour.

    Hopefully you can still reach "manong ton" through 09283880246 so he can make the same arrangements for you.

    Tricycle

    by DarleneCMF Updated Apr 13, 2007

    Tricycles is the primary mode of transportation around Coron town. The fare is P6.50 per person for short distances. There's a terminal close to the market and pier but a lot or tricycles just drive around so you can hail one from just about everywhere.

    Negros Navigation to Coron

    by DarleneCMF Updated Apr 2, 2007

    Negros Navigation's San Paolo has weekly trips to Coron, Palawan.

    Departure: Thursday 4PM
    Arrival: Friday 4AM
    Check their website for the most updated schedules and fares: http://www.negrosnavigation.ph/index.shtml

    These are expected arrival and departure times but since this is a boat, they rarely leave on time. If you can afford it, choose the admiral accommodation (or higher) since the private toilet and bath will be worth it, especially if there are a lot of passengers.

    When we took the trip in March, the admiral rooms were newly renovated and still smelled strongy of paint. Nakakahilo! The other problem was that the water pressure was low. There were several calls for the ship's plumber, which could only mean they are getting a lot of problems with the toilets...

    The worst thing: The boat stopped over at the Batangas port this one time to pick up ~1000 athletes for the regional games. This was apparently planned some months ago but we weren't informed. Bad information handling from NN. Instead of 4AM, we arrived almost 12 noon. Not good.
