Itinerary, Expenses & Accommodations in Coron

Coron is one of those places that I would like to go back to over and over again. Its pristine beaches, rustic atmosphere, and friendly people make it a perfect destination all throughout the year. Coron is also my first trip to another Philippine province by myself. I've tried traveling to another country solo so the next thing I decided to do was travel solo to a province in the Philippines.

This time around I just decided to take a tour package from the hotel I was staying in, Apartelle de Gabrielle. The package I got was worth P5,800 for 4 days 3 nights, excluding airfare, that included:
  • Breakfast for the whole stay
  • Lunch during the tours
  • All entrance fees
  • Boat, tricycle, and airport transfers
  • Air conditioned room
  • Tour A, Tour B, and the Coron Town Tour
During my stay there I computed the cost of the hotel, the food, the tours, and everything else the amount was almost the same, hit or miss a few hundred pesos. So the tour package was not so bad. Coron is very much easy to do-it-yourself but this time around I didn't want to think of the tour and my stay, I just wanted to relax and have fun. You can get the same package for P4,900, excluding airfare, if you choose to get the fan room instead.
