Travel 2013: Coron, Palawan Part II

On our second day in Coron, we picked the Snorkeling Package offered to us by Darayonan Lodge. The package was composed of Coral Garden, Calumbuyan Island, Paz Island, and Japanese Shipwreck.

Day 2 started with a long journey from the port to the Coral Garden.


The views along the way





One of the many thriving pearl farms in Coron.

The Coral Garden... The beauty of this place is hidden beneath those small waves. Too bad I didn't have an underwater camera...
Calumbuyan Island... Our next stop for Lunch break




The perfect place for lunch!!!





Our boat had a mechanical problem while we were in Calumbuyan Island... While waiting for them to fix the boat, we've stayed under this tree... The best place for delayed departure time.

The Crystal Clear Water of Palawan...

Our next stop was La Paz Island. We've paid extra for the entrance fee but it's all worth it. The sand there is comparable to the powdery white sand of Boracay. There were lots of foreign tourist in the island when we arrived. According to our tour guide, some of those tourists stayed there overnight. They rented one of the small houses in the island. 


Yes, she can do this all day...

The Coron Island. Did you see the sleeping giant???

On our last day, we woke up at around 5:30 in the morning and climbed Mount Tapyas to see Coron at sunrise.

After climbing down Mt. Tapyas, we prepared for our flight back to Manila. We've had lots of fun in Coron. Thanks to Darayonan Lodge for taking care of us! Hope to see paradise again...
