  • Hiring van or car in Coron town.

    by azalin65 Online Now Mar 30, 2015 at 1:19 PM

    I am travelling from El Nido to Coron by outrigger boat. When I arrive in Coron, I have to get from the pier to my hotel, Al Faro Hotel, located in D'Pearl Bay area, which is about 50 minute drive from Coron town. Since I am not arriving in Coron at an exact time, I can't make arrangements for the hotel van to pick me up. Does anyone know if there are cars or vans for hire in the pier area that I can hire on the spot and will take me to that area ?

    Traveling to Coron with a 1 yr old baby in August (generally a rainy season) is it advisable?

    by Meeriah Online Now Mar 13, 2013 at 1:27 AM

    We are booked to travel to Coron, Palawan first week of August 2013, with our 14 yr old and our 1 yr old baby. Is it safe to bring along a toddler and do island hopping? Just say she will be geared up for safety precautions, like life vest and the likes. Any feedback who has gone through the same with their kids would be very much appreciated. Coron is such a lovely place and we are all (already) booked, it would feel really bad to leave our dear munchkin behind while we all are having fun in the island :(

    Hi! Has anyone been to Sangat Resort in Coron? How does one get to the resort from the airport?

    I will be with a group of 3 adults and 2 teenage kids. Only 2 in the group are scuba divers. What is the nearest snorkelling area from the resort? Is the beach entry dive off Sangat any good?

    Do you have other recommendations for lodging?
    What other activities/ destinations on the island would you recommend?
