Maquinit Hot Springs Tips (7)

Nice warm springs for a swim

On our first day in Coron we have no plan, we thought we'll do the town tour, but we're likely not very interested to do it and also this cost 550 peso per person while you can hire a tricycle for 150 peso to do it on your own. Besides, Mt Tapyas is included on the package, we don't feel like climbing the 750 steps we've done enough steps in Cambodia jus a few days ago.

We would like to swim the Maquinit hot springs, so we ask our hotel desk if they can arrange a tricycle for us for hot spring, a husband of a girl who work in the hotel is a trikes driver, so she called her husband

Going to maquinit is quite an adventure, the road is terrible potholes and very dark no lights on the road. Best way to come here is to hire a tricycle. The driver will be waiting for you. For 150 peso you're at ease during you swimming with no worries of how to get out there

After a 25 minute bumpy ride we're so glad to arrive, there is an entrance fee of 200 peso per person. The hot springs is from salt water (sea water). For the first time you get into water it feels so hot, takes a few minute before get use to the water, once in the water you don't want to come out anymore. If this too hot for you, you can go under a running cold water to cool down. We spend for about an hour, it was really dark when we get back in town. The Maquinit hot springs should not be miss when you are in Coron

Maquinit Hot spring--really hot

We came to Coron on the afternoon of February, with little time left we went to Maquinit hot spring. We rode a tricycle through unpaved roads and when we got there the sun already set. The place was surrounded by mangroves, there were two small pools and one big one. The smaller pools were hotter than the bigger pool as if the bigger pool was not that hot enough. Test the water first as it is really hot, but you'll get used to the temperature when you stayed long enough

DON'T MISS THE HOT SPRINGS

Maquinit Hot Springs is 5 kms east of Coron Town and i have written a separate tip on how to get there in the transportation section. The best time to go there is late afternoon when the sun is going down and it is not so hot. Tourists pay 150 peso entrance fee, but there are discounts for locals, senior citizens and the disabled. The ticket is valid for the whole day so you may go in the morning and return in the evening. Opening ties are from 8 am to 8 pm, but they let us in at 7.30 am. The spring comes out of the hillside and is directed in to two small pools and from there the water flows to a larger pool and the water is a constant temperature of 41 degrees. I have been in many hot springs before, especially in the mountains of Nepal and India where the air temperature is cold, and even snow is on the ground so i found conditions here are far from ideal as after 15 minutes in the water i found it was time to cool off, but when one leaves the pool the air temperature could be around 35 degrees, so one is not really able to cool down. However if it is high tide there is a walkway through the mangroves to the sea where you could take a quick dip.

Maquinit Hot Springs (& Infinity Pool)

Maquinit Hot Springs is nice refreshing stop. The slightly salty, volcanically heated water comes out of the spring around 40C (105F). There are two hot pools adjacent to the spring, both cascade down into a larger pool which might be about 33C.

On the far end of the large pool, between the mangrove forest, the water flows directly into the sea. You can jump down into this water too and get a therapeutic mix of hot and cold!

The park is open until 10pm daily. It is highly recommended that you visit in the late afternoon, dusk, or evening. The combined heat of the day, the sun and the springs will overload you system if you visit any earlier.

Entrance is 100PHP for visitor, 50PHP for resident.
You can take a tricycle from town for ~150PHP (pay after your return), or it is included at the end of some island tours.

The new ticket office is located on Nueva Street, near Rizal St and the Catholic Church. Tickets must be bought here before going to the hot springs. Tricycle drivers should know this, but keep them honest about it anyway so they don't try to charge you extra by taking you back and forth multiple times.

Maquinit Hot Springs

The best hot springs I've ever been to.

What's unique about the Maquinit Hot Springs is that it's salty. The springs from the mountain is mixed with the seawater and so you get the dual therapeutic effects of saltwater and warmth (40 degrees C). The initial soak was physically difficult, but once you get used to the temperature it's really enjoyable. Then you don't want to leave anymore. :)

We were told that there used to be only one pool, but a bigger pool has been developed to accommodate more people. This is an excellent way to relax tired muscles at the end the day. Maquinit is accessible by land (tricycle from town is P120) or sea.

Entrance fee: P100
Local residents: P50
