Coron Again – 08/26/07

This is the day where I started hunting for a trip. I do not need to hire a boat just for myself. There are foreign couples here that goes on tour. I intend to join tours with them. I know some boatmen here, and they are willing to assists me.

Sidetracks…

Finally at 10am, I was able to join a German couple in their boat tour to Coron Island. Because I can speak English well, I somehow became their tour guide… So, once again, here’s the Coron Island Tour…

This ends my Coron Island Tour. Believe me, one day is not enough to explore and enjoy this places. There are still other places that we didn’t stopped over, because of time constraint and because the entrance fee is discouraging!

Entrance Fees (from what I remember):

  • Siete Pecados = P75
  • Kalachuchi Beach / Kayangan Lake = P200
  • Barracuda Lake = P75
  • Banol Beach = P100
  • Skeleton Wreck = P100

Going back to the town, I have the chance to take shot of it…

I guess this ends my Coron Again trip.

Until Next Time!
