    Vans at the airport

    by brownkoala Updated Dec 19, 2009

    The trip from Manila to the Busuanga National Airport takes about 1 hour. The airline we used was Cebu Pacific and they were on time. Outside the airport are vans for hire that will take you to your accommodation in the town of Coron. Fare is 150 pesos per person and per way and the ride is comfortable. The view is also amazing. The provincial government is finishing up the construction of the highway from and to the airport but the ride is still comfortable because of the airconditioned vans and there are not that much vehicles on the road. The trip takes 30 to 45 minutes per way. The drivers are nice and helpful.

    For going Island hopping, you have to get in touch with either a tour operator or a boatman. here're are the recommended ones:

    1. Mang Jhong, 09084499523 - he is highly recommended by someone in Pinoy Exchange and the others have also recommended him.

    Boatman / Tour guide / cook

    by shomalabanan Written Mar 4, 2010

    hello..

    I think i was the one who told you regarding the boatman in Coron, his name is Kuya Jong - 09084499523

    if you also intend to go to Calauit, i heard it was nice there, and i also plan on going there when i go back to coron.

    You can negotiate terms with him, but it will depend on the date, how many you are and the weather of course..

    make sure you contact him earlier so he can reserve that day for you.

    i hope this helps. :)

    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 :-)

    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.

  • Ferry to Coron

    by greys Updated Apr 4, 2011

    One of the cheaper ways to go to Coron is via Superferry or Negros Navigation. My friend recommends Superferry. It takes you about 12hrs for a 1-way trip but since departure from Manila is late afternoon, and arrive in Coron 6-7am the following day. Going back to Manila, your departure from Coron is 10:45pm, and you arrive at Manila pier the following day 1:30pm. You travel & sleep. By the time you wake up, you're at your destination. It will be a different travel experience. You can book your tickets online.

    The boat trip back to Manila could sometimes experience delay as it comes from Puerto Princesa, which is 12 hours away from Coron.

    Be sure to call the pier for updates so you don't have to wait at the harbor for a long time. We had to wait for more than 3 hours because we didn't know about the adjusted schedule.

    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.

    HOW TO GET TO MAQUINIT HOT SPRINGS

    by davidjo Written Jun 22, 2014
    4 more images

    Maquinit Hot Springs are around 5 kms east of town and basically there are only 2 ways to get there besides walking. You could rent a vehicle such as a van, jeepney, motorbike or charter tricycle. Of course the hot springs are also included in some tours of the town. The trike fare would be around 200 pesos o/w, but you could probably arrange a return with an hour waiting time for 300 pesos. The fare is for the whole tricycle, not per person. We actually went in the morning when there were no other visitors but the most popular time to go is in the late afternoon when the sun is about to go down.

    There are many travel agencies around Coron Town but if you want to contact the airline directly you will find that Philippine Airlines and Cebu Pacific both have offices at Busuanga Airport.
