Traveling can be really costly especially if you opt to go to a famous tourist spot. But, hey! don’t let it stop you from visting the island. Coron, is definitely a must for all types of travellers. There are a lot of affordable accommodation depending on your budget and preferences.
I was with my fiancé for our vacation so definitely he paid everything.We stayed in Sunlight Guest Hotel,the hotel has a pool so during the days we were only relaxing. It took us around 3-5 minutes by trike to reach the town. Prices of commodities in Coron are expensive for me.😂 For instance, I bought 1 pack of Yakult for 60 php. 😫😱
We ate out using Tripadvisor as a guide and eventually tried some of them for lunch and dinner.My fiancé said that I am very stingy for I often complain “costoso” which means expesive. Hahaha,😂😜
📝Below are the list of what I’ve learned from my 5 days in Coron. 😍
✅ Book your round trip ticket ahead, promo tickets are better.✈️ ( Ours were regular priced tickets purchased from SKYJET via Manila and PAL going to Cebu)
✅ Bring cash although there are banks in Coron. For foreigners its better to change your currency to Php before coming. The rate in Coron might be lesser.💸
✅ Busuanga airport is around 50 minutes depend of the traffic (haha yes!! ) to Coron town. [Our hotel offers free transportation ]
✅ There are some hole in the wall restaurants for those who are on a tight budget. 🍱
✅Stay near the town where everything can be reached on foot. Tricycle in Coron is around 10-15 pesos. 🏍
✅ Don’t worry for the island tour in Coron, there are a lot of tour agencies offering different tour packages (if you haggle the rate might be lesser) .In our case, we let our hotel arrange the tour for us! ( of course vacation must be carefree! Stress free! 😂 )
✅Try the other island tour if you have more time in Coron. (We only had one because my fiancé still had jetlag and I wouldn’t want to see him sick like when we had our El Nido island tour)
✅Bring your own snorkeling gear (if you have).
✅ If you visit Mt Tapyas, I suggest you go there before sunset, the view is breathtaking. Take water with you.
✅Bought ref magnets 5 pieces for 100php
✅ Terminal fee is 100 php.
✅ Bring light,comfortable clothes because it is scorching hot in Coron especially this season.
✅Treat yourself sometimes,there’s nothing wrong in spending into lavish things, it’s your own money anyway. 😘☺️
REMEMBER: LEAVE ONLY FOOTPRINTS . LET’S PRESERVE THIS PARADISE. 🏝
