How are the beaches, caving, trecking, and diving, snorkling of Palawan compared to others parts of the phillipines. Will we see sharks in the sulu sea. Is that safe. We want a liveaboard. If you could go on a livaboard anywhere in the phillipines where would it be. Can you go on a few hour caving expodition or is it just a hole near the entrance of the mountain. Where in the phillipines will you recieve the best all around trip. Why are the shipwrecks special on Coron there seems to be many all over the country. I hear the beaches arn't very good is this true. What kind of animal nature life can we see especially bird life. Why must you go to El Nido.
- Palawan is a huge. It is one of the largest provinces in the Philippines in terms of land area, and there are very very many places to see. Some of these places will be better than in other parts of the Philippines, and there will be places that are just comparable. But it really depends on what your expectations are and what kind of activities you would like to do... - Seeing sharks? Divers in the Philippines do not think of that as something to be afraid of. Actually, we look forward to that. As long as you don't do anything to harass the sharks and just keep a respectful distance, you should be fine. Anyway, being unfamiliar with diving in the Philippines, you should get a good dive master to show you around and he should be able to brief you on safety issues concerning the wildlife you will see and other matters. - Live aboard? If you can afford it, go to TUBBATAHA. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is on the top of the list of most divers. (But the diving season is limited, so I hope your schedule will fit.) - Caving? Answer to your question is: it depends. There are a variety of caving expeditions to choose from all over the Philippines... - Coron special for the shipwrecks? Hmmm... I'm not so sure since I haven't been able to go wreck-diving in Coron... but, I think it's highly recommended because there are several wrecks that could be found in a relatively small area, so that you have more opportunities to see different wrecks within a few dives... Also, the surrounding landscape/scenery in Coron is quite special. Other than the wreck-diving, visiting the lakes in Coron Island (like Kayangan lake and Barracuda lake) should in itself be worth the trip. As for the beaches, there is no beach in Coron town and you have to hire a boat and go to the different islands to see white sand. Whether they are "very good" depends on what you expect the beach to look like and what you would like to do there... The beaches in Coron are not the same kind as in Boracay Island... Also, reef-diving isn't that good... - El Nido is a must see because of the spectacular scenery (for me, one of the most beautiful places in the Philippines) and variety of ecosystems and ecotourism activities; it's really a nature trip. It's also considered as a good place for bird-watching. Hope this helps!
