First post ko for this year Yey!
Since October 2012, I've been planning for my itinerary for my December vacation. Its not an easy task. I have to enjoy and maximize the time and days that I'll have. Half of it nagawa ko na. And I was happy that last December 14 to 17, our Coron, Palawan trip was a success! Everyone had the best time! We fell in love with the place too. Gosh, its paradise!
Yun nga lang masakit sa bulsa. Butas na butas! I have to shoulder all five of us kasi. Including my sister, her husband, who by the way is a cancer survivor and their 8 year old kid, this is the only time that after all the chemo and radiation therapy and hospitalization that they've got the chance to have a vacation. I am really glad that I got the chance to give them that. They deserved it. I also brought my ex-boyfriend Brian, who is also now a good friend to me and been part of the family ever since our time together pa.
Flying via AirphilExpress we booked ourselves for 4 days at a suite room with a balcony at the Islands View inn which is situated at the center of the town and a walking distance from the coron port. No swimming pool but our stay there was pleasant and comfortable. I love having breakfast at their rooftop! kitang kita yun buong town.
I also contacted Owen of DIYCoron.wordpress.com for our island tours for two days. I read a lot of good things about his services so I've tried it and I am glad that we did. The boats and the bangkeros that he gave us are polite and very helpful. I cannot make any complains.
We arrived the Busuanga airport at around 10 am and the hotel van picked us up. kakaloka lang. right after we exit the airport premises, all we could see along the way are mountains, trees, nipa hut houses, cows! probinthiang-probinthia! aliw!
They have ATM machine naman in fairness! and Globe signal are weak on this part. Panalo ang smart dito. haha.
We had an early lunch at Sea Dive resort. I chose this place because its in front of the sea and they have free wifi. hehehe. A lot of foreigners are dining there too. Ke popogi! Busog na busog mata ko! LOL. Food are expensive in coron, its a fact. Puro sea foods inorder ko.
We rest at the hotel for a few hours and wait for Brian's arrival. He had an exam till lunch that why he have to come in late. When he arrived we asked the hotel's staff to call a tricycle to bring us to Maquinit hot springs. Kakaiba tricycle dito andami nailalaman, kasya ata sampu! LOL! Its a rough ride going there, kakaloka! Honglayo! hongdilim! parang may aswang na lalafa sa amin sa sobrang liblib ng road! hahaha
There is an entrance fee of 150 pesos/ person. You could bring your own snacks and drinks inside.
Pero super enjoy. They say, the water there is therapeutic. Sobrang init sa una. But as you stay longer, you will enjoy being submerged into the pool. saya lang magpapicture sa mga bakawan hehe. The tricycle driver waited for us for more than an hour. I paid 300 pesos to manong.
We had dinner at Everly Garden restaurant. Their sinigang na fish that I forgot the name was heaven! haha. Wagas sa sarap! We love eating here too because of their bahay kubo settings and the red lamps oh-em-gee! cuteeeee!
We decided to walk back to the hotel to enjoy the town. Kaso muntik pa kami may makaaway! may nakabungguan kasi kaming guy nag sorry kami pero nagalit! kala namin ok na, kaso nakita ng sis ko na pasugod siya na lalapit sa amin! sumigaw sister ko at sinabi nyang ano pa problema e nag sorry na kami. Grabe nakakatakot! tapang ni kapatid! hahaha. Umalis naman siya in the end. Sabi nila may sira daw sa ulo yun.
