On our second day at the town of coron, we are up and ready by 7:00 in the morning to have breakfast at the rooftop of the hotel. We ordered longganisa and egg with fried rice and a hot tea. Judith the one in-charged of our tours from DIYcoron picked us up from our hotel by 8:00am. She guided us at the port area and introduced us to the boat crews habang suot ang aking hat and shades with my scarf! charrr! turistang turista ang peg!
Basta you will need all of that since mainit so don't forget the sunblock, masakit sa mata ang araw, and minsan malakas ang hangin and malamig that's why I had the sarong.
We're all excited when the boat started to move ahead the sea revealing several islands and mountains along the way.Hindi ka mabo-bore sa byahe andaming makikita sa paligid! It was an exciting journey for all of us. Its very different from our boracay trip 2 years ago.
Napapatili kami whenever we see the dilis fish jumping from the water! hongdami! (oa lang as if dolphin nakita namin noh?LOL)
Our boat stopped at Siete Pecados and snorkeled among fish for about 30 minutes. There's an entrance fee of 100 pesos. We got bored and we asked them to move to the next destination which is the famous Kayangan Lake where we paid 200 pesos each for the entrance.
Going to Coron was a complete adventure. There's a short hike towards the mountain where they built a long stairs made from stones from the mountain itself. Its pretty scary for me. Masyadong matarik and matulis yung mga bato and mataas yun inaakyat namin. I almost run out of breath! I have to pause for like every 10 minutes! exhausting ang kabundukan na yun! tseh! At pwde kang mamatay kapag nadulas ka! jusmio fulgoso!
Matt brought us to the iconic site where most tourist would have their pictures taken. Naging photographer din namin siya LOL:
then konti picture taking din sa cave ganyan and when the hike was over...then we saw the Lake! Grabe! honggandaaaaaaa! sobrang excited na kami nun. Worth it yun hirap pag akyat! Wala ka maririnig sa mga tao kundi yung word na: GONDOH! uu ganyang ganyan ang pagbigkas nila! LOL
Magtatagalog na nga ko napagod na ko mag inglesher. charot!
Henywayz, we gathered all our snorkeling equipments and ayun na! nagbabad na kami sa lake ng kulang dalawang oras! Andun din si Matt sa tubig nakalusong and nakabantay sa amin. Lifeguard din namin siya. O diba all around. Anglinaw ng tubig at kulay blue na kulay green ewan magulo siya! tseh!
Andaming cute jusko. Buti nalang nasa ilalim ako ng tubig, nakailang putok din ako kaya. chos! Nag sisisi ako that I didn't buy aqua shoes because yun mga bato sa ilalim ng lake masyadong matalas, if you're not careful masusugatan ka talaga.
Nakakatawa lang kasi kapag pipicturan ko si Brian nadadala ako ng current na napakahina naman kaya hindi ako maka steady kaya laging blurred or palayo yun mga shots ko sa knya hahaha! Galit na galit tuloy si bakla.
The Four of us while Matt was at the bottom of the lake and took our picture! astig!
My Nephew :-)
at yun pala don't forget to bring your underwater cameras! its a must!
My sister at the balsa in Kayangan lake
After that wonderful experience sa Kayangan Lake, they brought us naman to another great location: The Barracuda Lake! It got the name from Barracudas living in it daw. Isa lang nakita ko. Naluto na siguro yun iba! LOL
There's an entrance fee of 100 pesos each.
This lake is smaller kesa sa Kayangan, pero halos kamukha din. Mas madaming foreigners dito. I likeeeeee! dito sila nagtetraining ng scuba diving. Yun iba maloko. naglalaro ng poker underwater with all their scuba diving equipments hihih. aliw! Kitang kita namin sila kapag nag snorkeling kami.
Less than an hour later, matt called us for lunch! I thought hindi na nya kami tatawagin! jutom na kaya kami.Ayun the other kuya prepared us grilled squids, shrimps, and tilapia.Meron din grilled liempo! Jusko wagas ang lamon namin ng nakakamay. They also got us seaweeds na first time ko matikman! wala naman siya lasa. tseh! May bananas and softdrinks din silang dala with ice yan ha!
ito yun view kung san kami kumakain:
After the sumptuous meal, we ride the boat again and headed at the Aurora or pass through lagoon. Nagpicturan kami dun. No swimming.
Then we headed to our next destination: The Twin Lagoon. The water here is cold grabeeee! and sobrang lalim! we cannot see the bottom of the lake! parang may lalabas na balyena or something. charrr!
My brother in law. Habang tulak tulak ng mga paa ni Matt yun balsa so that he could enjoy the lagoons.
syemps may moment din ako! LOL
We saw some katutubo houses sa dulo. Protected daw sila ng government, dahil sila yun unang nakatira or nagmamay ari ng mga isla at lagoons na binibisita ng mga turista. may parte din daw sila sa mga fees collected. Aba ang laki din nun ha! kada tao 200 and 100! e ilang ang turista napunta! sana lang nabibigyan talaga sila noh at hindi nakikikbak lang!
Then our boat took us to the ship wreck. I love this site! aside from seing the sank ship underwater, we could feed the fish and play with them, nakipagtaguan nga ako at saka langit-lupa mahuli taya. charot! I love the corals too! nakakatakot lang na baka may biglang coral na bumuka at mag hasik ng kung anung chemicals hahaha! There's an entrance fee of 100 pesos each dito. Pero super sulit as in! best snorkeling site ever!!!
We stayed on this wonderful site for more than an hour! as in sinulit talaga namin! We also had our merienda here. They gave us Puto :-)
Nun mabusog, we went to our last destination: The CYC beach. I dont know what CYC stands for, I forgot to ask Matt. Hindi ko masyado bet itong beach na ito. Kakapiraso at hindi pino yun sand. After a few minutes we asked them to take us home na. Its almost 5:00 in the afternoon na din naman so, yun, we went home very happy and contented! Then after ng brownout, we head out and had dinner at Kawayanan grill.
Brian holding my hand and guiding me to the deep part of the lake. super takot na takot talaga ko dito haha!
