Huge raindrops started to fall, I ran down to the nearest covered stopover and in no time the whole town was already drenched in rain water. As much as I wanted to go all the way down, I could not risk the gadgets that I have in my bag getting wet, so I have decided to stay put to wait the rain out. That was when my not so ordinary travel story at Mt. Tapyas in Coron all started.
I was thrilled to go island hopping and see more of Coron’s prized wonders. We were to stop at CYC Beach, Siete Pecados Marine Park, Hidden Lagoon, Calachuchi Beach, Calachuchi Coral Eden, and Kayangan Lake. More sites tantamount to less time spent in each location but that was a not a problem, the more the merrier!
Having read tons of blogs and good reviews about Coron in Palawan and having seen those nothing but alluring photographs posted by those who have been to the paradise, made me more envious to go there and experience it firsthand. And so I did. Yes!
Since most island hopping tours start in the morning, I have nothing booked for my first day. I was looking for a bike rental shop that I read on an article but unfortunately the shop had already moved someplace else. The locals told me that there was a new bike rental shop near the hospital so I headed there.
I know that it’s not that easy to plan a trip and it’s not at all CHEAP to travel. Airfare would consume a huge chunk in my budget, plus my accommodation, then I have to spend for the tours, of course I need to eat (A LOT!), and not to forget the souvenirs. But I have to start somewhere to make it happen…Coron seemed to be a great place to start.
