This Coron Travel Guide will provide you with useful information on How To Get There, Where to Stay (Accommodations), Where to Get Tour Packages, Suggested 3D 2N Itinerary,Travel Budget and Expenses, Transportation and Contact Details on how to plan your Coron and Busuanga Trip.
HOW TO GET THERE
Coron is easily accessible by air from Manila, travel time is about 1 hour. Major local airlines such as PAL Express and Cebu Pacific flies to Busuanga several times daily. Another 40-minute trip by land will take you to the town proper of Coron. By sea, it's a 12-hour trip from Manila. Check out www.superferry.com.ph for the fares and trip schedules.
Busuanga Airport to Coron
For DIY trips, you may take a van outside the airport that will directly bring you to Coron town proper. Fare is Php 150 pesos.
Maquinit Hot Springs
Since it is located outside the town proper, I suggest that you rent a tricycle, it costs Php 300 pesos for a trip to and from Maquinit Hot Springs plus Mt. Tapyas.
It can easily be reached by walking from the poblacion, just ask around for directions.

Notes: Rooms are very spacious, with 2 queen-sized beds (that could easily fit in 4 persons), all rooms also has a TV and private toilet and bath. Since we're only 3, we were initially given one room, but I requested for another room and they easily agreed at no extra cost. I had the other room all by my self. The place also has a mini swimming pool, a billiard table and function hall. A stand-by power generator is also available, so there won't be any problem if power interruption occurs.
The most common mode of transportation in going around the town of Coron is a tricycle. Minimum fare is at Php 10 pesos.
