Coron town tour is best recommended on your first-day tour since this will take only half of your day. Because the island is known for its preserved beauty, the Philippine locals and the foreigners of the land travel to Coron. If you have traveled from Manila by morning and will get to Coron by lunch or afternoon, you will still have the time to check in at your hotel, rest a bit, and wait for your van to arrive to have your Coron town tour for P700/$14. Calamian Islands Travel and Tour is one of the trusted Coron tourist spots provider.

Looking for a place to stay in Manila? Exchange Regency Residence Hotel is an affordable hotel to consider.

Mount Tapyas

Mount Tapyas is a mountain that has concrete stairs for the ease of people to climb the top. Mount Tapyas is the second tallest mountain in Busuanga and it has 722 or 724 steps, so bring a handkerchief, a fan, and water. Areas to strike a pose at are plenty and is also a great view of the sunset.

From the Tagalog word, “Tapyas”, meaning chipped off this mountain was ripped off from the bombs during the world war. The cross is the marking point to reach the summit so looking at this till it gets closer is half a taste of victory.

Maquinit Hot Spring

You would not want to miss this hot spring as Maquinit Hot Spring is one of the few hot springs in the world. It is best to have this bath after a sweaty trek from Mount Tapyas. The entrance closes at 7 PM but may stay until 8:30 PM and has an entrance fee.

the cottages of Maquinit Hot Spring

Maquinit Hot Spring is a man-made pool located between the hill and sea with surrounded mangroves. It is said that the water gets hot because of an inactive volcano underground. The first soak could be a challenge since its 40 degrees Celsius temperature. Despite that, the presence of mineral and Spirulina can help cure diseases.
