Wahh! super na-extend pa kami ng isang araw sa Coron!(Me, Leny, and JJ) How sad 😢! our supposed 9 AM flight was delayed and later on na-cancel na due to some technical problem (DAW) ng plane and to makeup for the airline’s inconveniences, we were given a free food and hotel accommodation plus a free ride pa from airport to the centro town which is Okey na sana kaso sobrang badtrip!! as in 😭 at my pasok pa kami kinabukasan WHY kaya? hmmm siguro may mga hindi pa kami nagagawa sa Coron na kailangan naming gawin 😜.
*think Misay, think!!! ouch.. OO nga! as per bestluck JJ nakalimutan nya raw bumili ng pasalubong at as per Leny gusto nya raw mapuntahan yung kubo sa MT. TAPYAS and ME well, hindi ko pa naakyat ang MT. TAPYAS at isama pang may kaylangan kaming resbakan sa AMPHIBi-ko ang isang staff nila roon hahaha *just kidding! (well brutal term nga eh noh as in RESBAKAN hahahaa LOL pagbayarin ba naman kami almost 1K as in lahat kami take note!! pagbayarin ng mga utensils na hindi daw namin naibalik at matress na binutas daw namin duh!!as if naman na kinuha namin yun diba!! dadayo ba namn kami ng pagkalayo layo para lang mangulimbat ng mga kutsara at tinidor 😂
Naku ha!! need talaga irefund ng Amphibihiko yung mga binayad namin ko or else (mawawalan sila ng mga costumer in the near future kung ganyan sila). Kaya if I were you guys! if you’re planning to go to Coron I wont suggest Amphibiko lodge. Period!
Maiba naman tayo sa aming lahat ako lang naman ang di umakyat sa MT. TAPYAS. (I made up my mind not to climb in Mt. Tapyas dahil nga ang taas-taas at di ko yata kakayanin 😂 and yet isa pa ako sa na kasama sa macancelled ang flight argh!! parusa ba talaga 😂
Maybe it is true that you won’t leave Coron without visiting the famous Mt. Tapyas (one reason I guess why I needed to stay 1 day more in Coron haha just to conquer it). As soon as the van left us in the hotel we immediately went to Tapyas and my nightmare start! To those who don’t know Mt. Tapyas is one of the popular destinations in centro town Coron and the main attraction is the big white cross plus you can see the view of the whole island. This viewpoint is really high that you have to walk up a lot of steps so don´t forget to take some bottled water with you. Wear comfortable shoes and breathable clothing because the mountain has 700 plus steps to reach the summit but once you’re on the top, embrace yourself for another breathtaking view of the coron bay. I recommend you to go there before the sunrise and sunset to catch the amazing view.
The next stop was something that tickled my curiosity mind! THE TITANIC!!! 😂 hehe just kidding! Seriously speaking this post is all about shipwreck. According to our boatman (James) there were about 40 or more shipwrecks at the area but only a few of it were seen in Coron. Shipwreaks are scattered throughout the islands and some of it are still in one piece and completely intact.
SKELETON WRECK and LUSONG GUNBOAT are the only one I remember 😂(ang dami kasi nila) and one of my favorite one is LUSONG GUNBOAT because you can almost see the whole boat lying on the seabed. How wonderful is it because you can actually go and stand on the tip of that boat when the tide is low. I wasn’t able to do that because I’m not a good swimmer 😉.
🙂 It’s true that nature is not just a place to visit like any famous places in the world.. It just as simple as what we called HOME 🙂 where you find your comfort zone , friends, love and serenity .
Another exciting day for me!! wondering what is waiting for me on the other side!
Next destination Banol Beach 🙂 It was soo beautiful, I saw limestone rock formation and different kinds of cottages (KUBO kung baga hehehe!) this is bulit for excursionist for them to have a place to stay. I noticed also a small store in the island where you can buy chips and drinks...It has small stretch white beach that is enough for us to stroll and hang around for the next few minutes of stay.. 🙂 Some of my friend decided to have a quick nap of one of the cottages, while me and Leny of course Lol 😛 we roamed around the beach looking for a great view that will fits on our picture perfect souvenir hahaha so it’s time to click and flick!! 🙂 haha ito na ang tinatawag na paitiman 😛
This is the continuation of my Coron escapade, My second part of continuous journey!. I have my previous post before and if you haven’t yet read the first one, click here. ☚
We started the day having a breakfast in Amphibiko lodge. Breakfast time to start the adventure! right? 😉 So I had a small serving of Cornsilog which is a short term for Corned beef, sinangag (fried rice) and pritong itlog (fried egg) plus a cup of kapeng barako that somehow helps complete my meal! then off to another expedition(but seriously I’m still GUTOM!! haha gutum much!)
Off into the ocean and we went to our first stop SIETE PICADOS: We went snorkeling there and I was so delighted to see different kind of fish, especially the stripe one! I like it so much! Many of it like to swim with me too but I was just at the stairs holding my lifevest (takut eh!) 😂. The boatman told us not to step on the bottom because there are many sea urchins laying or hiding on to the corals so better be careful guys! (it is bit scary! right? but because I am not a good swimmer, it’s okey for me to staying afloat hehe. All in all we just spend 30 minutes in that place taking pictures and exploring the place.
In order to get to BARRACUDA LAKE: Our next stop! is to climb up again on tricky limestone rock with the help of this dos-por-dos wooden stairs hehehe 😊. The pathway to the lake was too small that allowing only a few people to hang around (bawal malikot or else hulog ka! hahaha)
We had our trip last February 16-20 this year. My friends and I went to Coron,Palawan via Cebu Pacific. We availed one of DIY Coron’s service.
