3 Coron Islands Beach Bumming Tour

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Monday, August 31, 2015
If you’re following me on Instagram or like our official fan page, you’re surely updated that I’ve been to Coron Palawan last month for a break. Yes, it was in early June not April to May, but it’s still summer for me. The real summer is the season I’m really busy with work, and since my work load is a bit lighter and it was my birthday week, that would be really great to just take a break and go offline.

Anyway, I was so lucky and loved that Asia Grand View Hotel and Sea Coral Lodge in Coron provided me the accommodation so I could have this awesome and unforgettable adventure with two (2) fellow bloggers. Plus, not just that Blue Lagoon Adventure Travel & Tours also took care of our tours there in Coron for 5 straight days. I’m so blessed with these awesome people that I don’t know how to thank them enough for supporting this travel blog and my fellow travel buddies and bloggers.


Bulog Dos Sand Bar

Malcapuya Island, Bulog Dos, and Banana Island

In the beach bumming tour in Coron, you’ll be able to visit the beautiful islands which are the Malcapuya Island and the Bulog Dos. But I’d highly advise for you to add the Banana Island in the itinerary since the three islands are just near to each other and Banana Island is beautiful too. Again, the Banana Island is not included actually in the package, but you may request to add it.

But why visit these islands? Why you should totally go for the beach bumming tour in Coron? Well, here are some simple reasons for you to visit these islands.

Bulog Dos

Bulog Dos island is just a small island that you can see almost everything from the top, and finish roaming around in just about 30 minutes. We just stayed there for about an hour, take pictures, swim, and just leave.


The sand is beautiful, the view is awesome, and it's just the neighboring island of Two Seasons of Coron. Want more photos, then read my blog post on Bulog Dos Island.

Malcapuya Island

If you're going to ask which island you should totally visit? Well, I'd say this one especially if you want this kind of pictures taken.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines (43)

The locals of the island actually fed the fish that's why they're coming out, that's why I have these shots taken which was a great experience. It's far from the seaside, but it's not that deep.

Read more about my FISH TRIP at Malcapuya Island here.

Banana Island

The Banana Island is the island where we have our stop at to take our lunch and take another snorkeling. Our cottage have a beautiful view, and the waters are clear.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Travel Blog

Read more about my Banana Island trip here.

Visiting these three beautiful islands in Coron is totally a must try. It’s where you’ll realize that you have a great alternative to Boracay Philippines. Though t takes about 2 hours to get to the first island which is Bulog Dos, the other islands are just nearby and the trip is totally worth it!

What to Bring?

In this tour alone, well actually I think all the tours in Coron you should totally bring the following:
  • Towel - your hotel might have a beach towel that you can borrow, Asia Grand View Hotel did provide us.
  • Snorkel and fins - highly recommended to rent one. You can inform the tour guide before you leave the port or when you book. Rent is only P150 each per day. 
  • Waterproof Camera – I was with my GoPro Hero (yes, just a hero) which cost around P7,000 ($129).
  • Sunglasses – I left my sunglasses which was a gift from Zalora at Malcapuya. I was just too happy I think and amazed that I forgot about it. But really, you need the sunglasses especially if you’re visiting there during summer.
  • Sunscreen– Flawless actually gave me their first bottles of their Skin Protect Miss with SPF70 and works like magic.
  • A bit of cash – I didn’t bring any cash when we visited the Malcapuya and I was really thirsty and since it’s an island mineral water is limited there and expensive. So since the locals there are selling the coconut (fresh, as in it’s still a coconut, in a coconut shell, freshly picked) it for P50 I asked to borrow some cash to our tour guide (LOL). But I paid him immediately of course at the boat.

Coron Beach Bumming Tour Itinerary

If you've been reading Exotic Philippines for at least a while, then you might know already that I'm a sucker on tracking time. I hate tracking time. So with the itinerary, all I can give you is what time it started and ended, plus what we did within the time.

8:00 am - ETA at Coron Port.
8:30 am - ETD at Coron Port. Need to ask permit and be checked by the officials in the port for security purpose. They check if you're wearing a life jacket, and if everyone have one.
10:30 am - ETA at Bulog Dos Island. We were given 30 minutes to swim.
11:00 am - ETD to Banana Island.
12:00 pm - ETA at Banana Island and take lunch.
1:00 pm - ETD to Malcapuya Island.
2:00 pm - ETA at Malcapuya Island.
2:30 pm - ETD back to Coron Town.
6:00 pm - ETA at Coron Town.

Again, please take note I'm a sucker in taking notes of time. These are all estimate (in terms of time) in this itinerary. But surely we did start around 8:00 am and ended around 6:00 pm. But I think it took us more time to go to the islands because it was raining, it should be from 8am to 5pm.

How much is the Coron Beach Bumming Tour?

The beach bumming tour might be a bit pricey for you. But, it’s totally worth it. Kill me if it’s not.
Please take note that you have to travel to the islands, it’s also like island hopping at the same time. So that’s why the cost might be a bit high for you, it’s because of the boat transfers. But I swear, it’s a must experience.

Anyway, here are the rates for this tour.

Malcapuya Island Escapade (Beach tour) 
Price: P2,000/pax
Destinations: Malcapuya Island , Bulog Dos
Additional pax for Malcapuya Escapade is at 1500/pax

Malcapuya and Banana (Min. 5 pax)
Price: P1,850/pax

Inclusions: Buffet picnic lunch, boat and life vest, all entrance fees and park fees and gov`t. taxes, free 2 bottled water during tour, snack (Filipino delicacy: puto, suman, biko, pitsi-pitsi), Service of trained guide.

Where to book this tour?

As mentioned above, we got our tour from Blue Lagoon Adventure Travel & Tours and we’ve actually requested for Ryan, since Gretchen of FilipinaExplorer.com have been with him before when they visited Coron few years back. So, they’re tried and tested! You should totally book the tour in this agency.

DIY Quick Tour in Cebu City

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Thursday, August 27, 2015
My client from the US came here in the Philippines, and he asked all his team come here in Cebu to meet. He asked me to give the team a tour around Cebu city since they’ve never been here in Cebu before, and I’m from Cebu so it will be best to organize it myself.

So, I happily accept the task to do it since that would be really useful in sharing it with you all here through this travel blog, Exotic Philippines!

At first I thought that it will be just the 4 of us, I decided to just hire a taxi for the whole trip. But since they’re tagging along their friend and special someone, and it’s best to put us all in one car (to get to know each other) I hire a car rental instead – which is better.

DIY Cebu City Tour by Exotic Philippines Travel Blogger Blog

DIY Cebu City Tour Itinerary

8 am – Pick up time.
10:30 am – ETA in Taoist Temple.
11:00 am – ETA in STK ta Bai restaurant.
12:00 am – ETA in Magellan’s Shrine
12:30 pm – Sto. Nino Church
1:00 pm – ETA in Heritage of Cebu Monument
1:30 pm – Yap - Sandiego Ancestral House
2: 00 pm – End of Tour

Please note that I’ve made a 2 hour allowance since sometimes there are people that are in Filipino time (1 hour late) plus if you’re staying in Mactan Island, you might need that extra time. But if you’re in Cebu City an hour allowance for the travel time will be enough.

We actually finished the tour around 1 PM since we were just about 15 minutes in the Magellan's Shrine area. Though there are some areas that you can still visit, like the Mactan Shrine (especially if your hotel is in Mactan), we needed to end our Cebu tour before 3 pm since we needed to meet up with our boss. But it's very much doable if you want to drop Mactan Shrine.

DIY Cebu City Tour Expenses 

P 3,000 - 7 hours car rental (Innova - good for max 6 persons) from Cebu Trip Rent a Car 
P 300 - Yap - Sandiego Ancestral House entrance fee. P50 per head.
P 2,000 - Lunch at STK ta Bai. Good for 6 persons.
P 5,300 - Total expenses
/         6 - persons
P 883.33 / person

Since our boss paid the whole tour for us, we didn't divide it. But just to give you an idea on how much you'll be able to save if there are more than 4-5 persons in a tour I've divided it for you.

Cebu Trip also offers a van rental, if there's about 12 of you guys (maximum) you can totally get the van instead for at least an additional of P600 - still you save a lot.

DIY Cebu City Tour Contacts

I know it should be DIY. You can take jeepneys and all, but there's no jeepney passing by the Taoist temple, you have to go for the taxi. After that though, you can totally take a jeepney but you have to be familiar with the route, which I want to share but thinking twice about it since I don't go much anymore in Cebu City anymore and there are times that they do change the jeepney routes.

Anyway, here are the contact details of the car rental we hired for this tour.

Fish Trip at Malcapuya Island Coron

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Tuesday, August 25, 2015
Let’s Fish trip!

Fish trip, is my made up term that actually means going underwater and looking for fishes and bond with them.

Fish Trip at Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Travel Blog Blogger

I love discovering new things, and going underwater is one of my bucket list but I was afraid for years because I seem to be traumatized in my younger years when I almost drowned. And Coron Palawan seems to be the cure of my trauma and the answer to my bucket list.

I’ve been and challenge a couple of times to go diving, but I was thinking twice about it because I’m way too afraid. So snorkeling is a great and ideal first step for me to comfortable and conquer my trauma with swimming, and I did not regret doing it at Malcapuya Island in Coron Palawan.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines)

The Malcapuya Island is actually owned by Henann Group of Resorts, it’s not yet developed or have been commercialized like other islands in the Philippines but I’m guessing they’re planning to.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

The island has white beach like Boracay Philippines, beautiful view, and all. Well, see for yourself.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

It is said to be one of the virgin islands in Coron, and surely it is.

White beach you say? You want that? Then, check this out!

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

I do hope that they keep it this way, a bit of cleaning up is needed though but look at this. It's a great place to just stay away and getaway from the busy city life.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

We chilled for a while at the tent, and the local there prepared for the boat for us.

Yes, we'll need the boat. You'll not hop into it. You'll just be dragged by the boat so you'll be able to see underwater at the same time and of course get to the destination faster. No worries, it's not like really deep there just deep enough.

Bring a life jacket if you want, and if you're unsure of yourself in being able to hold on well to the rope. But I didn't have any problems with it.

On our way, I started to see some fishes. They don't want to do anything with me though. They just ran away from me while I'm being dragged and holding on to the boat.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

Just few minutes later, we stopped and we saw few fishes. So, I was wondering why at first we stopped. I looked up, and saw the boat man getting something. He told me to look down, he'll be feeding the fish. And viola!

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

They just pass by me, and sometimes all over me so I walked out to get a better shot of them.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

There were also some who seem to realize that I can be feeding them too. So they were the ones following me around and when I got back at our hotel, at Asia Grand View I realized they're camera friendly too. LOL.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines (53)

They seem to be curious too with what I am holding that they're passing and going around my GoPro.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

They love the camera. They love posing and curious with me at the same time, plus they're being fed.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

The other boat man who swim with us calls my attention, and dive. I then saw this.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

Hello Nemo! Where's Dori?

The fish there also seems to be familiar with the boat man, our guide. They're all circling around them.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

After about 30 minutes of being amazed and entertained by these fishes, the boat man said that we'll need to go, there's another spot they want to bring us where the clams are at. So we hold on to the rope again, and be dragged the blogger draggers! LOL.

Just few meters away, we then stopped again, and saw these.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

They have fewer clams there but they're all a lot bigger. But I'm not sure why they're all alone there. But hey, here's a closer look underwater.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

The other guide dive in, and grabbed one of the clams and bring it out of the water to show us.

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

And I was like, "Okay, you look way better underwater." and the clam just suddenly...

Malcapuya Island Coron Palawan Philippines

It spit on me!

But really, he just closed it doors. LOL.

It was an amazing experience at Malcapuya Island, I say I highly recommend for you to try out this island yourself and experience this yourself if you're planning to visit Coron.

I did not regret this FISH TRIP! I'll be looking and I'm actually craving for another fish trip! hopefully soon.

More about my trip in Coron Palawan to be shared and blogged here in Exotic Philippines blog!

Choosing The Best Wine For The Season

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Saturday, August 22, 2015
Nothing helps you appreciate great seasonal weather and atmosphere than an appropriate drink to accompany the moment, and when it comes to choosing a wine there are a variety of great ones that are perfect for you to pair with a meal, a season, or even specific types of weather. If you’re looking to plan a party and are thinking of serving wine, here are a few tips for making your best seasonal pairings.

Choosing The Best Wine For The Season

Summer

When it comes to picking great bottles of wine for the summer, there is no doubt that you’re going to be looking mainly at lighter and refreshing wines that can be served cold on a hot summer day. The most popular choice tends to be French Rosé, most of which come from various southern regions of France such as Provence and even Languedoc-Roussillon. Summertime is also a great opportunity to pop open a bottle of bubbles, the most popular, once more, being from France, specifically Champagne.

Autumn

The slightly cooler months of autumn will call for a little more warmth and comfort from your wine, meaning you’ll be finding more reds on your table, though perhaps still not the heavier ones. A great mix of varietals during this crisp season is the Syrah and Grenache blend of St Chinian, France, or if you’re looking for something luscious, consider a Pinot Noir from Montepulciano, Italy, or Napa, California. If you’re still after white wines, then one with a little more oak flavour, such a Chardonnay might be the choice for you.

Winter

As the coldest season of the year comes around you’ll be looking for some big wines full of deep tastes to keep you warm and cozy. Perhaps because they’re grown at altitude, the Malbec grapes from the Mendoza region in Argentina are also a perfect match for the harsh weather, with their dark plum, bitter chocolate and smoke flavours. If you’re after something even larger, then consider a Barolo from Italy, which tends to have a mix of aromas including camphor, chocolate, leather, mulberries, plum, spice, and truffles. For a comforting late night or after-dinner drink, there nothing more fitting than a Reserve or Vintage Port.

Spring

During the season of the year’s rebirth, most people are looking for a wine that is light and fruity, such as Sauvignon Blanc from South Africa, or white Bordeaux and Sauvignon-Semillon blends. If you’re after a refreshing red wine, consider a bottle with a lighter fruity flavour and such as a younger Pinot Noir from Chile or Oregon, or a Sangiovese from Tuscany.

Remember, no matter the season, the most important thing when it comes to drinking wine is choosing the bottle you enjoy the most. And if you're worried about making the choice yourself, a wine club will send the best seasonal options straight to your door or  pick up a mixed case from Tesco to try a bit of everything.

Philippines History, Culture, and Lifestyle in Metro Museums

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Thursday, August 20, 2015
In the past, museums were places for the culture vultures, the arty set, the creative community and those studying history. Things have changed in the 21st century, as these places offer better experiences for the whole family. It keeps the youngest children interested, and parents clicking away with cameras and smart phones (where allowed). Many have interactive areas for young and old alike to enjoy.

Philippines History, Culture, and Lifestyle in Metro Museums

Whether your visit to Manila includes strolling around the metro for gastronomic places, looking at real estate in the Philippines or wanting to have an in-depth perspective on the country’s evolving culture, visiting local museums is the best way to go. Here are a few museums that will keep your eyes and minds enthralled until closing time.

Museo Pambata

This museum, which took its ideas from a similar interactive U.S. museum known as “The Boston Children’s Museum”, provides the young, and young at heart with all manners of adventure. You can learn about the body in the Body Works, go to a (virtual) sea in an old Spanish Galleon, or barter in an old Manila marketplace.

The Mind Museum

The Mind Museum houses a collection of five galleries, namely: The Technology Gallery, The Universe Gallery, The Life Gallery, The Earth Gallery and The Atom Gallery. Each one provides interactive learning activities for adults and kids.

National Museum and Museum of the Filipino People

While immersing yourself in the cuisine of the Philippines and trying to soak up as much of the local color and culture as you can, take it one step further. A visit to the National Museum, and the Museum of the Filipino People will take you on a thrilling ride back in time. Know more about the pre-Spanish colonization era and the events after that. If your interest in a country lies more with the arts, then this is also a great choice to fuel your inspiration and knowledge.

Bahay Tsinoy

This museum traces the history of the close ties between the Filipino and Chinese communities since the early days of trading. Now, the Chinese-Filipino communities are as large a part of Philippine history as anything else. With archaeological evidence dating back to the 10th century, the path is traced in ceramics, prints, and photographs.

Metropolitan Museum of Manila

If your interest in art is of a more contemporary nature, this is the place for you. With works from Felix Resurreccion Hidalgo and contemporary and local Filipino artists, combined with pre-Hispanic pottery and gold jewelry, Neolithic jars and jugs, and funeral masks over the years - you can really get immersed in the art and culture of the old and new.

These are just a few of the many fabulous museums in the Metro Manila area. Remember, if you visited any a couple years ago, then it’s time for another look. Museums continuously change their exhibit themes, add new ones and improve tourist experience. Together, they provide locals and foreigners with a great opportunity to enjoy the history and culture of the country.

Lunch Break at Banana Island Coron

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Monday, August 17, 2015
When our guide Ryan said that one of the islands that we’ll visit on that day is Banana Island, first thing comes in mind is that there must be a lot of Banana’s in the island. But, Ryan said that the island is shaped like a Banana from the top.

Banana island, also known as Dicalabuan Island is 1.5 hours away from the Coron town, which is also near to the high class resort, Two Seasons Coron Island Resort and Spa at Bulalacao Island – which can also be seen from the Bulog Dos Island side.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Travel Blog

Exotic Philippines along with 2 fellow bloggers, visited the Banana island after the Bulog Dos island and took our lunch in the island - and that's why this post is entitled the lunch break at Banana Island. It was around 12 noon when we arrived in the island, and after 15 minutes of swimming at Bulog Dos I was already hungry.

Banana Island Coron Palawan

Our cottage for the day. It's simple but the view is awesome.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

Our cottage also gives a quick access to the beach and we can just actually watch Lia playing. She loved it!

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

When our lunch was set up by our guide, I want to eat right away but Channel took a swim first. She was there for about 30 minutes, and after I took a photo of her swimming I'm not sure where she was anymore since she can dive.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

When she came back she said I should go along with her since there are a lot of fishes taking their lunch too. But then I was still full, so I just told her that she should eat first.

After few minutes of letting her rest and digest her lunch, we went for a swim and snorkel to the beach. She was hoping that the fish are still there since she said it was really beautiful and surely, for a newbie like me. will be amazed.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

The water is clear. And yes, I can actually swim and float without the vest, I just learned that I can do that when I was in Coron. LOL.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

Few minutes later I saw some corals, corals that I expected that a lot of fish will be. Channel lead me to the areas that she saw the fish eating, she said there was even a huge fish eating, but they all seem to be gone.

But few more minutes, I started to see some fish passing by me. They look at me and looked shocked that I'm a huge fish, no worries fishes. I'm not a whale, I'm a pigfish. LOL.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

They ran away after they saw me. Most likely scared but there are also some who just ignored me and my GoPro swimming along with them.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

I also saw few people swimming, and they were looking at us since we're not wearing a vest and we have fins and all, and they were like screaming to their friends not to leave them alone.

As I was passing by the corals, as a first timer in snorkeling I was surprised when the corals moved.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

And I was wrong, it's not a coral (i think) it closes and opens and when I get near it it just closed. But I have the feeling that it's a clam.

I was playing with it for a bit and left it alone to find other fish.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

Most of the fish there are black, but there were also some who are unique and some are even bigger.

Channel says those fish are not as big as what she saw during her first swim. Knowing that makes me regret on not going along with her.

Still, I was able to enjoy chasing some of the fish there.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

I started to hear someone kind of talking to me, it was Channel screaming for me. Nope, she didn't drown or something, she's a better swimmer and diver than I am.

She was pointing to something.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

 So I turned around and look for what she's trying to point out to me.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

It was a clam. Or they're all clams!

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines

I dive a bit and caught this fish. Gotcha fishy!

But really, I was looking at the clams. They were all big and there are a lot of them there.

Banana Island Coron Palawan Exotic Philippines Travel Blog

Channel and I was there for more than 30 minutes, we did enjoyed Banana island of Coron Palawan, but our guide said we should get going. There's an island we should get to, and that is the Malcapuya island and Ryan said they have a lot of fish there and we'll surely enjoy it.

But still, if you're asking if Banana Island is one of the islands in Coron that you should visit, totally! I didn't go further in the beach side since we're more interested in snorkeling. But they said the beach there are beautiful. Sorry, no photos from me for that.

Sea Coral Lodge Coron Review – Your Affordable Accommodation Choice in Coron

Gay Aida Dumaguing - Tuesday, August 11, 2015

June 7-9, 2015 – I was staying at Sea Coral Lodge in Coron Palawan with my fellow blogger friends. We stayed at Asia Grand View before that for 3 days and 2 nights too, and since we want to extend our stay in Coron to experience everything in Coron I decided to have an affordable or cheap accommodation for the next few nights so I’d be able to blog and share other options for those who wants to save more with their accommodation.

I contacted Sea Coral Lodge if they’re interested on being a sponsor a few nights stay, and they opened their rooms wide open for us. So, first off thank you Sea Coral Lodge for having us!

With this, I’d like to share with you my review of Sea Coral Lodge Coron for 3 days and 2 nights. As I have stated on my hotel review request page, I reserved the right and the freedom to share what I have experience, good or bad. But no worries, I was actually happy staying at this lodge in Coron.

Sea Coral Lodge in Coron has 3 standard rooms, 1 twin rooms, 2 triple rooms, and 1 family rooms available, and they gave us the triple room.

The Hotel Rooms

Though it’s a cheap accommodation, I didn’t expect it to be as nice as this. The room is fully air-conditioned, flat screen TV with cable, and clean sheets.


And I appreciate it too that they make an effort too on having these towels turn into something classy.


As you can see, their sheets are clean, their beds is not that thick but good enough that I slept well for 2 nights.


As you can see, the room can fit up to 3 people (obviously it's a triple room) but Channel and I slept in this room. I have the bigger bed, since I'm bigger and it was just enough for me. LOL.


I was not able to take pictures of the other rooms since they’re all occupied.

The Hotel Bathroom

For a Coron cheap accommodation, I’m also surprised that they have a heater available at the bathroom. They even have this kind of hanger (not sure what to call it) where you can hang your wet clothes, very nice idea!


The bathroom is a lot way better than the cheap accommodations that I’ve tried before. No weird smell too.

The Hotel Restaurant

I’m not sure if I should call it a restaurant. But you can also order a breakfast from them, they have a menu too for you to choose from.


We thought that their breakfast meal is a bit pricey that’s why Channel and I chose to walk and go to the market, and have our breakfast there and their meal prices is similar to Sea Coral Lodge price. So yeah, we regret it a bit.

So yes, sorry guys! No food ratings here since it's not included in the accommodation. But breakfast meals is around P100 to P120.

The Hotel Room Rates

Here are the 2015 room rates that I was provided. Please contact Sea Coral Lodge for an update price of their rooms.

Room
Price per Night
Standard
P1,000
Twin
P1,200
Triple
P1,500
Family
P2,500

Exotic Philippines Hotel Ratings

Sea Coral Lodge is ideal for backpackers or travelers who wants to save a lot of money. It’s easy to find, you have an easy access to everything, and the van (going to the airport) can easily just pick you up – they can also contact the van for you so they’ll pick you up at no additional charge.

Though it’s an affordable accommodation, it also offers a “grand view”. Check this out!


We also entrusted them with our bags (that has our gadgets) since we needed to leave, and the check in time is 1:00pm. So they offered that they’ll be the ones who’ll put our things on our room while we’re away having a tour in Coron. That was a total plus!


Another one is that, they have a wifi. Cheap accommodation, and free wifi? That’s another plus. It’s also fast, I was able to work at night and do what’s needed to be done for my clients. 

As a Coron cheap accommodation, I’ll highly recommend Sea Coral Lodge. As a lodge, an affordable accommodation in Coron, Exotic Philippines would like to give Sea Coral Lodge a hotel rating of 4 stars out of 5 stars. Please note that I am rating them as a lodge not a grand hotel in Coron.
