April 16-17 2009

Another day starting with waking up at the crack of dawn. We woke up around 4:30-5:00 to pack our bags again and leave El Nido to go to Coron. The banca (yes you read it correctly. BANCA that can only fit 15 people at most including the captain of the banca and the assistant captain or something something) was supposedly scheduled to leave at 7am but as usual we left somewhat around 8am and to think it was 7-8 HOURS of boat ride! Compared to the bus ride to El Nido this trip was 10 times more relaxing since all you see all day is clear blue waters with the sun shining and lots and lots and LOTS of islands with white sandy beaches.

We arrived in Coron town and checked in to the Coron Village Lodge. The place is the ancestral house of the owner then they converted it into a lodge. After leaving our things in the lodge, we went to Maquinit Hot Spring.

We planned an entire day of island hopping which started going to the wrecks of Japanese ships where we snorkled and headed off to Banol Beach for lunch and had the boat captain grill pork belly which we bought at the town's market. We then went to the Twin Lagoon, Barracuda Lake and Siete Pecados for more snorkeling and looking for nemos.
