"Wrecks and Reefs" Day-by-Day:

 

Coron.


You can fly to Coron from Manila city. It's a small domestic flight that will drop you off at a small airport, in the northern part of the island, belonging to the town of Busuanga. Once landed, there will be a transfer waiting, so no need to arrange that in advance!


This bus will take all passengers to all major towns and stays. Just tell them where you are staying and they will drop you off. Depending on the distance, expect to pay between 250 and 300 pesos.


Once in Coron, you can stroll through the village and if you move a bit towards the north side of the town you will find reggae dive center along the main road that I can highly recommend!

Coron Island

Diving in Coron is not only beautiful and diverse. The landscape is stunning! For more impressions I highly suggest you check out the link below!


I suggest staying in Coron anywhere between 3 and 4 days. You can go freediving, canoe, or just explore the island on your deco-days.

From Coron, it's quite easy to arrange a transfer by boat to El Nido. However, be mindful, as at the time of writing boats are only departing Monday - Wednesday - Friday. The tickets need to be purchased at the port entrance before leaving. Expect to pay 2600 pesos per person.


The boat leaves at 7 AM and you need to be at the port at 6 AM for check-in!


El Nido

is a lovely little town on Palawan island, all the way to the northern part. You can go diving in crystal clear, warm waters, with many easy-going, shallow diving, lots of macro and muck diving, and even some caverns. Coron is quite used to tourism but El Nido isn't as much. I really like the change of scenery from Coron.

from the El Nido area, you can go straight to Puerto Princessa to catch your flight to the next stop.


El Nido has its own airport, but flights can be irregular and expensive. I recommend taking the more reliable and cheap boat unless you can score a cheap ticket!

Flying from Puerto Princessa might be the best way to continue your trip if you are planning to visit Cebu. If you skipped El Nido for example and stuck around in Coron you might be better off, flying to Cebu City directly. Puerto Princessa is actually a quite nice town. You can easily spend a night here while transferring to your next place, however, it is far from as charming as previous villages.
